HTC announced the wildfire S today which has close specs to the Hero. It has gingerbread sense ui and has a 600 MHz processor and a 3.2 inch screen. So I'd it possible we can port a rom of it to the Hero?

Just FYI, 600 MHz on one phone is not the same as 600 MHz on another phone. The CPU in the phone you speak of is at least one generation newer than what we have. Read here for more details

Basically it will probably be very difficult to port. nfinitefx and others tried very hard to get a stable port of the original Wildfire, and that was hard enough.

Well i don't agree that it can not be ported to our wildfires.the kernel can be modified with the right drivers for our wildfires when i will have time and the sources will be available i will work on it.but the worst part would be the resolution i think.

I think that the best phones for porting Wildfire S ROM-s are Legend and Aria (Gratia) because both phones have more/less the same hardware specifications
