other than the obvious benefits of doiing this will it also remove the t-mobile splashes?

Well, this version seems more stable than the stock Orange rom....

for example, when in the compose sms section, when typing someones name in...rather than doing "correction" style numbers, it actually has a drop-down list with names and numbers.

Seems faster, overall, and nice to have standard set of bookmarks!

Will report more in due course.

My Orange Hero does and has always done that.



Paul, any chance of a real dummies guide in how to do this please ? Why the need to download your archive and also the patched one ? Or am I missing something ?? Sorry all this hacking is very new - with Nokia you just change the product code to allow you to update to the latest firmware.

At the time of an HTC update for the Hero, I can guarantee Orange will take weeks and months and more likely never approve the update... and to have these bug fixes would be essential to ensuring continued please with my Hero.

Hmm I got this nandroid working but I could root / access as superuser on my hero anymore, and re-rooting it doesn't work. Any idea?

edit - Sorry, it was my fault, forgot to enable USB debugging after the flash, silly me!. :P

I'm glad you mentioned it... I have noticed a difference too.. I have also noticed a longer battery life... I have disabled 3g and have removed BBC widget and am using my phone as normal now (not using it every 2 mins cos I love the phone!!!)

Cheers
