Htc Desire - How Easy Is It To Get Back To Default


So i have decided to root. I was going to goldcard/ruu to debrand my orange uk desire but i am a tinkerer and would love to flash rooted roms etc. Before i start i have a few questions;

1. Radio firmware: this is the biggie for me - i know that doing any sort of rom change you are likely to run into issues with the radio, this seems especially true on orange ones. So without having to unlock (it may sound cheap, but i haven't been paid for 2 months ) is there a way to avoid potential simlocks? Ie can i keep the radio version that is currently only my phone (just updated to froyo).

2. I know you can't get ota updates with rooted roms, but i like to keep up to date. I assume the guys making the roms are coming out with new ones all the time so is it quite easy to flash a new rom and be on your way?

3. Titanium backup and nandroid - i have seen people saying to use these for backups when you root. As far as i can tell titanium backup is good for settings etc, and nandroid is good for getting all your apps back, right? They both seem to require root access, so that surely means i can't backup all my settings before i root?

4. How easy is it to get back to default?

5. Which rom? I have seen many singing the praises of defrost. Is this pretty close to stock rom?

6. Anything you suggest i do/install when i am rooted? Anything especially cool .

I have seen many guides about, this in particular looks pretty damn easy to follow. Though the latest comments seem to be people having trouble now that they are on froyo and not eclaire. Also i got my phone early april, so i assume the screen is amoled, it doesn't seem to suffer from backlight bleed and its black as black on black backgrounds.

Samsung Behold 2 - Get Default Home App Back

Bh_man's roms are great and everything, but i'm a little disturbed that choices get made for me like which home screen app to use and there's no way to even switch back - the default home screen app is gone. How can i get the default home app back? I just want the stock system, i thought these roms were supposed to be lightweight stock roms

Htc Desire - Get Private Calendar Back / Set - Turn Off Alarm Per Appointment

Since my desire updated to froyo, i have a few issues with the calendar.
Before froyo, there were 3 types of calendar:
1.google calendar (didn't and still don't use it)
2. Htc sync (use it for the data i want to sync with my work calendar)
3. My calendar (calendar on the phone itself, used it for my private appointments and meetings i didn't want to get synced with my work calendar).

Now that last one has disappeared and i really miss it! Now my private meetings also show up in my work calendar.
Is there a way to get this private calendar back? Or is it possible to sync only in one way? I know it was possible with my nokia, so my work data appeared on my phone, but my private data didn't get pushed to my work calendar.

Another issue i encounter with the calendar app (not sure if it is typical froyo) is that every appointment has an alarm. Again on the nokia there was only an alarm if you explicitly entered one.
Is there a way to set or turn off the alarm per appointment?

Htc Desire - Sd Card "disappears" / Get It Back

Twice today my phone suddenly couldn't "see" the sd card and first claimed it couldn't take a picture because it did not have space authorisation (or something like that) on sd card then it said it hadn't been able to back up on card for the same reason. Each time i switched it off and back on again and it could see the card again. I am using a 16gb sandisk card purchased from amazon. Any thoughts?

Sprint Htc Hero - Easy Way To List My Apps

Just wanted to see if there was either a straightforward way or an actual app that would allow me to, say, generate a list of all my installed apps so that i could keep them in case i needed to re-download them (factory reset, etc).

Seems simple enough.

Nother think i'd like to see would be more of a shopping cart and/or wish list set up in the market. Ever been looking for one app and ran across 2 other kick ass ones. Or some that you'd at least like to look into. But knew would completely distract you from the original app you were looking for? I'd like to be able to "tag" an app as something i'd like to look into later.

Anyway, please let me know if there's an easy way to produce a list of all the apps.
