yes. Go ahead, root it and load a custom ROM, I have used CM7-11, and also MIUI/WIUI, Codenameandroid, and Quarx. all are good depending on your requiremets, chose one. Also do not forget to backup your ROM. Also you can download the SBF just incase your brick and remember keep your phone 100% charged whenever you do any kind of work

Have this phone for 18 months.
-In fact it is good as a first smartphone. Also the waterproof is nice.

The problem is that, when you realize how good is to have a smartphone, you notice how slow and irritating this phone is.

Tried many custom roms (including Xperia D 4.2 - the best for me), but they are slower that original SBF rom 2.3.5.

Conclusion: It is worth to spend more money and get a great smatphone.

Go to XDA developers and their in device list find for Defy/Defy Plus.

Here s the link for CM 10.2 (4.3.1), still OS is not stable but usable.

Before installation you need to root ur device and need to install custom boot menu and recovery. Before flashing ur device take a nandroid back up.

It is a really poor phone. I suggest you not to buy this phone at all! The ram is just 512 mb! I've been using this phone and it hangs way too much! If you've a little sweaty fingers or wet fingers, and if you tap anywhere on the screen, it keeps on tapping there! I was so shocked at its slow speed! Even home and menu hangs and get forced close! Not even a little heavy application can be handled by the phone because it has a lot of default apps that are already running and consume way too much ram! I suggest you to look up for some other phones even rooting doesn't help and moreover, it is a risky thing to do.

> In reply to Adrian1993 @ 2013-10-18 12:52 from dVHe - click to readI do not agree... actually the cm 10.1 and 10.2 are faster and better on this device also they are much more stable. The Ram is more then enough and if you need more speed you can overclock the cpu up to 1,4 Ghz without any trouble. It is a texas instruments processor so it will not overheat. I've upgraded all the defy series I used the Defy and the Defy +. One thing I cann tell you for sure: Overall this is the best phone you can get (if you upgrade the software of course cause the original sucks bigtime).

Its easy to root this phone. There is many topics about it. But I don't suggest flash a ics rom and above on this phone, because is just to slow and weak. I suggest to flash a cm7.2 rom is pretty fast. :)
Anyway the phone is really good. Im using it more than one year and its still waterproof. :D Only what I need to do is change the battery for new one. And the system is not stable any more, I notice that phone is restarting a few times per day. Phone is good, but need more RAM and a bit faster processor.

Unfortunately Motorola has crippled the Defy + by not updating it to Jelly Bean. However, if you care to take time and work on it, it's possible to flash it to Jelly Bean. And the Defy + becomes a pleasure to use with none of that Motorblur bloatware. Enjoy!
