    I have found this guide,its very helpful but before that its assumed that u have rooted ur phone..
    Once you’ ve rooted your phone you’ ll
    probably want to install a custom ROM to take
    full advantage of the new gateway you’ ve
    opened in to phone modding.
    Requirements
    1. A rooted Desire
    Choosing A ROM
    If you’ ve already found a ROM you want to
    install then skip down to the “ Installing the
    ROM ” section .
    I use XDA- Developers to browse and
    download ROMs. There’ s a massive selection
    there all created and customised by various
    developers .
    Just visit the Desire Development section to
    find a ROM
    There’ s plenty of ROMs to choose from, each
    with their strengths and weaknesses .
    Installing a ROM

    2. Installing
    1. MAKE A BACKUP OF EVERYTHING FIRST . If
    you don ’ t know how have a look at my tutorial
    here .
    There’ s also a backup method in ROM
    Manager called “ Backup current ROM ” which I
    suggest running at least once too.
    2. Download the ROM file from the topic on XDA .
    Certain ROMs such as the HTC Sense Froyo ’ s
    also need a radio file , if that ’ s the case then
    download that too
    3. Connect your Desire to your computer in Disk
    Drive mode
    4. Copy the ROM file ( should be a zip file ) and
    radio ( if you need one ) to the SD card
    5. Unmount your phone – Eject and change
    mode to Charge Only
    6. Reboot into recovery using one of these
    methods :
    If you have adb install just open Command
    Prompt /Terminal and type: adb shell reboot
    recovery
    If you have ROM Manager installed just
    choose the “ Reboot into Recovery ” option
    Otherwise, turn off your phone - > Hold down
    Volume Down and Power to boot into hboot - >
    use the Volume Down key to select
    “ Recovery ” and then press the Power button
    to select it
    7. Once in recovery use your trackpad to scroll
    down to install zip from sdcard
    8. Choose choose zip from sdcard
    9. Select the ROM to install – your ROM will
    begin to install
    10. Once installed press the back button a couple
    of times to go back to the main screen of
    Clockwork Recovery
    11. Choose reboot system now
    12. If your ROM needs a new radio installing then
    check if there ’ s any specific steps in the ROM
    topic , otherwise just repeat steps 6 - 9 but
    select the radio zip file instead of the ROM in
    step 8
    13. Your phone will now restart and attempt to
    boot into the custom ROM

    Flashing and rooting Android phones can seem difficult for the first time when reading those tutorials but once you do it you will find it very easy,I flash about 3-4 ROms a week on my Nexus One!
    The painfull thing is to reinstall all the apps via Titanium backup,there are no options to choose all the apps and reinstall them in a bunch,you have to pick each of them separately and restore!

    Thanks for the heads up on that one, I didn't know that. Just about to do a Titanium back-up now. Will bear it in mind.

    The advantage of Titanium backup is that you can use any actual app that you have onboard and use it with any other Rom (CM,Enom,Modaco...) while Nanbackup in the recovery menu is used for backing up your actual Rom in case the new one is not in your taste
