Hi,

I just bought an HTC Desire and I dislike HTC Sense, before experimenting with Cyanogen (which I have on my G1), I'd like to test regular Stock Android like the Nexus One has.
Are there any simpel ways to change the full Desire's interface to Stock Android (not only by replacing Sense by another home launcher)?
Any ROMs to install a Nexus-like OS?

And, when such a ROM installed, will updates be handled normally?


Many thanks!

Steven

CyanogenMod = AOSP (stock android) + Cyanogen additions/modifications. This rom is AOSP, ergo stock Android. On xda forums, AdamG promotes Oxygen as the cleanest AOSP rom. I personally think that CM is the way to go. You could add launcher2.apk to the rom or install it later to get the offical launcher, but otherwise, this is a really amazing AOSP rom...

The installation guide for it for the htc desire, is it fully working and checked? I recently bricked my g1 by following a guide on cyan wiki...

It wasn't. I tried, but got Bootloops. Afterwards did install manually (instead of ROM Manager) and works now, but the guide suggests ROM Manager and that one failed.

I did. But that was indeed the problem. I think dalvic-cache. Because that one was giving error messages in logcat. Then reformatted everything manually and installed all over.

Yeah, the same happened to me, when I first installed CM 6.1.1 on my stock HTC Desire. Followed everything - unrevoked3, ROM Manager including wipe and nandroid backup, but it just bootlooped at the CM splashscreen for more than ½ hour. From logcat I could see that it was dalvik cache rebuilding that was failing in an endless loop. I had to boot to Clockwork recovery, and then wipe cache + dalvik cache. Then I copied the CM zip and Gapps zip to root of sdcard, and then flashed them from Clockwork. After that CM installed as it should.

Avoid ROM Manager if u aren't sure what are u doing. ROM manager supposed to be easy use / Noob tool for flashing ROMs but instead it can be a shortcut to brick yr phone. There are many documented reasons why I'm saying this so don't rely only on ROM Manager. Just one of them (for Desire) is that using ROM Manager you can easily download/flash AMOLED ROM for SLCD Desire and vice versa...

Cyanogen was now really enoying me with notifications of low memory. All apps were at SD and i had 17 mb free but still i kept losing sms messages due to low internal memory :s restores my sense backup and going to try a clean stock rom instead.
