Default [Q] Some advise on update pls

I have an Orange HTC Hero which is rooted and running MoDaCo Custom Rom 3.2

I 've kind of woken up and found that in the summer finally there is Android 2.1 available and some custom 2.2 as well it seems

Now it seems that with 2.1 you get automatic updates so I was thinking of flashing it with the original unlocked with firmware 2.73.405.6.

I'm not very techy so I would like to understand a bit more the implications. The other reason I was considering the original ROM is that apparently (at least the ones I've looked at) the custom roms with 2.1 lack HTC Sense.

Am I correct or have I got all the info wrong?

Thanks for your help

You can go official. Though its not without bugs.

There are versions of 2.1 with and without sense in terms of custom roms. Launcher pro is the favorite vanilla launcher at the moment. And its very nice.

All 2.2 roms are vanilla android currently.

thanks btdag

So, if I had to go with the official version. Does that mean that mean that my phone becomes unrooted again?

Thanks for tip on Launcher Pro. I've just seen some videos of it and it really looks nice

Thanks Guys. At the end I decided to stick with custom roms and flashed it with the Villianrom. Will see how it goes.
