Found an old GV apk file here, all works well again.
Oh bless you!
I was playing around with 2.3 builds again and I can't help think they are retarded monkeys compared to this ROM SPEED wise. I mean they are neat because they are monkeys and even the retarded ones are pretty cool. Heck, you might not even notice they are retarded if you don't know what a non-retarded monkey looks like (this ROM). Anyways - enough with the monkeys.
P.S. - no slight to the devs who continue to work on 2.3, those ROMs have their place and features that take it beyond this ROMs capabilities and I've donated to several 2.3 devs. I just think our hardware more or less peaked with this ROM from what I've seen.
I tried to go back to Froyo from GB and the way I personally have my 2.3.5 set up, it in no way compares to Froyo. The speed I get out of my GB/2.3.5 with the ROM, Firerat's MTD Partition Script and the line of V6 Supercharger Scripts is pretty intense as far as speed. I don't ever see myself going back to Froyo after being used to the speed of my Hero on Gingerbread!
Did you try any of those scripts with a newer ROM by chance?
Yeah man been needing that apk for a while. And yeah, I'd have to say that after downgrading (upgrading?) back to Froyo from Ginger, the speeds are ridiculous. The Hero just feels more at home on Froyo. Thanks to AOSP as always.
All that being said.. here's a question I've been searching for a good 20 mins on the forums for:
WHERE DID MY MUSIC CONTROL VOLUME BUTTONS GO? i.e. when the screen's off and I want to skip tracks using the volume buttons so I don't have to turn on the screen and press on something. It's distracting while driving. hahah
Have you installed any apps to your phone since the flash/fresh wipe?
It's a beast, but it really depends on what your using it for. Me personally I'm waiting for something comparable with an HTC logo on it but that's just me...
Edit: The best advice really is to not to believe the hype... Wait till it comes out and see what people think of it before you spend your money and the next 2 years on it...

thanks for replies, going to nandroid, wipe davlik, and let it whirl. noticed new gapps mini. anything changed?
GD I love the speed of AOSP's ROM. Makes the Hero far faster than anything that preceded it. I wonder if there is any significant jump in speed in terms of pure browsing now versus the Evo.
Indicdentally, anyone know of any good themes that somewhat resemble the NFX-Hero 2.2.1.update1 ODEX? Really all I want is a black status bar. White/Grey kinda gives that windows 2000 vibe.
