Sprint Htc Hero - 2.1 - .6 Great Results


I know theres already a thread about the ota update, but it seems to be only concentrated to the root loss, and since im getting a replacement hero in the next few days, i figured id bite the bullet and give it a shot.

So far, cant seem to find any cons about it yet. Bt connection to my headset and car work as they did on 1. 5. The text lag seems to have been fixed (im not even a fast texter and i was out-typing it by atleast one word on the orig 2. 1). Sprint navigation is now back on my phone. Pinch to zoom to see all 7 screens actually works now, as opposed to taking atleast 3 trys to get it to recognize it previously. Since i originally updated to 2. 1, i never thought id say this, but the phone actually works now. Well enough that when i get the replacement, i might go ahead and do it (assuming it keeps working like this, i have no reason to root)

I just did the update a few minutes ago, so ill try to run outa my phone for the rest of the night and see how it holds up, but as of now, its as good/better than it was at 1. 5

Sprint Htc Hero - Remove/change The Word Sprint Above The Time

1. On the unlock screen is there anyway to remove/change the word "sprint" above the time? (Without rooting)

2. While on youtube is there anyway to set your preferences so that the video defaults to high quality if available?

3. Still havent got an answer about if its possible to get gmail to show up on an individual contacts "mail" screen without setting up imap?

4. Is using your phone as a modem only possible if you root?

Sprint Htc Hero - How Does Everyone Feel About Best Buy Insurance As Apposed To Sprint

I'm picking my phone up from best buy tonight and had acouple of questions. I am considering having bb install an is screen cover, but have heard the screen is pretty scratch resistant. The thing is i am a mechanic and my phone never leaves my side and i don't want any harm coming to it. I also plan on getting the seidio innocase combo once i recover from the money i spend on the phone. Oh yeah, how does everyone feel about the best buy insurance as apposed to sprint?

Rooting A Sprint Htc Hero

My friend has a sprint htc hero running android 1. 5, software version 1. 56. 651. 2. He just got the phone and wanted me to root it for him, but sadly, i can't find a "one stop shop" for how to downgrade this phone, get root access, upgrade the phone, and install a custom rom on it. I've heard that cyanogen won't work on heros, so i guess that could be out of the question (or can it work?). So basically, what i'm looking for is this:

1. How do i downgrade his software version?
2. How do i root it? (I'd prefer not to use adb, if at all possible)
3. Which rom should i put on his phone after i root it?

Sprint Htc Hero Upgrade Question

I'm still running off of the old 1. 5 os and wanted to know if anyone had upgraded thru sprint to the 2. 1 os and what they liked or didn't like about the new system and any problems that came up afterwards - if any. One of the things i hoped they changed was the limited phone contact entry. I'd like to be able to enter a home phone/cell/work phone number for a few of my entries like i could on my old palm centro - all one can do with the hero is enter a single phone number and im number to each contact.

Sprint Htc Hero - Always On Data Setting

Can anyone tell me what exactly turning off the "always-on data" setting does? Specifically, what functionality would i lose by disabling this? I already have peep set to download things manually, i have a mail account that checks my email every 30 minutes, and i don't even have the facebook app on my phone. But, will this affect the "people" app from downloading facebook updates, new contact pictures, etc?

Sprint Htc Hero - Looking For A Contact Widget - Where To Get It

I had gotten the hero back in october, but didn't give it a chance and returned it, and couldn't hold out any longer and giving it another shot. When i had it before i had a widget on my homescreen for contacts and what this did was it scrolled either left or right, it was a small widget, maybe 1x2 (?) Icons and you scrolled until you got to the contact in the center and clicked on it to call. I have tried to find this on the market to no avail this time and was hoping someone would know what i was talking about and direct me to where to find this widget or even what the name of it is.

Sprint Htc Hero - How To Mount On Tripod

I just downloaded a time lapse camera app for my new hero and it works like a charm. Problem is, if you don't have anything handy to prop it up against, it's pretty much useless. I was wondering if anyone came up with a way to secure the phone to a standard tripod mounting bracket/screw. I came across some nice ones for the iphone, but i think the hero is just a tad smaller.

Htc Hero Sprint - Which Phone Are You Getting When Your Contract Is Up?

The hero has served me well. It was my first android phone, and absolutely blew away my prior blackberry. And with cm7. 1, it still runs fairly quickly. But with my 2yr contract up in a few months, i will probably make the leap to a new phone. Which android phone are sprint hero users getting (or have gotten in the last few months) when your contract is up? And is anyone considering crossing over to the iphone?

Sprint Htc Hero - Easy Way To List My Apps

Just wanted to see if there was either a straightforward way or an actual app that would allow me to, say, generate a list of all my installed apps so that i could keep them in case i needed to re-download them (factory reset, etc).

Seems simple enough.

Nother think i'd like to see would be more of a shopping cart and/or wish list set up in the market. Ever been looking for one app and ran across 2 other kick ass ones. Or some that you'd at least like to look into. But knew would completely distract you from the original app you were looking for? I'd like to be able to "tag" an app as something i'd like to look into later.

Anyway, please let me know if there's an easy way to produce a list of all the apps.

Sprint Htc Hero - 2.2 Update Market Not Showing

I went to the store where i bought the phone to get my phone updates since i have no idea how to do anything technical (i had enough trouble installing gameboid :p). So he updated it to 2. 2 and i liked it so far, it worked a little smoother, and it was more interesting over all but the only problem was that the market app wasnt there. We tried looking for it online and we couldnt find one. He tried a different 2. 2 rom and the same thing happened. Now i have it back at 2. 1 untill i can find an answer to this problem.
