    One question - are UK phones still GSM or are they CDMA? There are two versions for Desire and I don't know which I should use

    The update that came out the other day was a pre 2.3 patch to fix a few issues and get the platform ready for 2.3

    How do I go about flashing cyanogen onto my phone if I have never done it before?

    at the moment its an up to date HTC Desire on Vodafone

    Ive read lots of things about making sure you have the right recovery menu and making sure you use the right radio file.
    At the moment I must admit it looks confusing and im worried I will break it.

    Have a butchers here: HTC Desire (GSM): Full Update Guide - CyanogenMod Wiki

    I'll admit I had a hiccup on the way through with mine, probably my fault - but once you've rooted and installed Clockworkmod its easy to do a full wipe and then install the modded firmware from a file on the sd card (listed as the second method in the instructions)

    took I suppose about 40 minutes, even with difficulties as I had

    actually this was my exact problem:

    Known Issues
    Shutting down the phone with USB plugged in will start ClockworkMod Recovery in an unreliable mode.

    some questions

    How do I go back to stock if I want to?

    What radio file should I use with my phone - the one in the wiki or is there a more up to date one?

    There is no Sense UI in Cyanogen so what would be a good alternative with Sense?

    Domino will be able to answer better than me no doubt, but I do know that you won't get anything but a stock ROM with Sense as it's made by HTC, although there are lots of alternatives (I hear OpenHome is good) available on the market place.

    To return to stock ROM, you just download it and flash it I believe (I did this to remove T-Mobile branding from mine and am currently using HTC stock)

    I'm interested in the radio query too as I'm clueless on that one

    1. backup before you change ROMs
    2. check the cyanogen website, the latest and greatest are always there
    3.I'm sure there's a cracked sense install available, xda forums would be a good bet

    Once you've rooted and installed CloworkMod Recovery as per the wiki instructions, grab ROM manager from the marketplace, make sit a easy process.

    I'd recommend backing up the contents of the SD after doing this too (via usb to your desktop is fine)

    I know I have an SLCD screen. Does 6.1 support these screens?

    it does,

    however the root process is slightly different due to some hardware/firmware revisions made at the same time, depending on your HBOOT version [ROOT] Method for HBOOT 0.83 (SLCD phones) - xda-developers if yours didn't come with FROYO preinstalled you're probably in luck

    [HOWTO] Downgrade Froyo (2.2) to Stock 2.1 (ANY HBOOT | WIN/LINUX/MAC | ROOT) - xda-developers or [Root] SLCD HBOOT 0.92 - xda-developers

    note, mine is AMOLED so I haven't tried either of those processes

    I downloaded the recent vodaphone upgrade (2.33.161.2.CL284385) and its affected the behaviour of my own app!

    It seems the voice recognition returns multiple results (e.g for my speedlimit app it just returned 8 guesses for what speedlimit I'd set - like 20 miles per hour/20 mile per hour/20 miles per our etc)

    So watch out if you using a voice app

    regards

    Simon
