    Yes you can use regular apps from the market. When you wipe, you will lose everything. Either backup apps with titanium backup or after installing rom, the market will redownload everything again.

    Like he said, everything will still work, make sure you have your contacts synced with google or go to contacts>menu>import/export>export to sd, also make a nandroid backup before the ROM, there is a how to in both of our signatures

    thanks, I have already rooted, and familiar with backing up with titanium, just didnt know about the function of native google apps and such, where do I download the roms and wich do you all suggest I try first, preferable one that is proven stable?

    Use bootstrap to backup your entire phone. Its imperative you do this prior to any mod. Go to ROMs subforum and the latest ROMs are stickied. Are you on 2.3.340 system version?
