Sprint Htc Hero - Can Stock Ringtones Be Removed


I'm using darchdroid v2. 8 and it comes preloaded with a crap load of ringtones that i will never ever use. Is it ok for me to go ahead and delete these? I know these are in /system/media/audio/ringtones but i'm not sure if it is ok to delete them? I tried to delete the ringtones from the rom before i flashed it but when flashing, it gave me an error that ringtones couldn't be found. I don't want to try and delete them and find out later that my phone can't reboot. Just want to ask before i even attempt to.

Sprint Htc Hero - Go Back To Stock Radio Withoug Using Ruu?

Alright, so i have seen many users ask, and i understand that the ruu (either 1. 26 or 1. 56) will allow you to set the radio back to stock. What i want to know is, is there any way to reset the radio without having a chance of it bricking from the ruu reset. I have heard several people had their phone brick after attempting to use the ruu, and i don't want to risk it. Not that it is a problem if i do, i could just go into the sprint store and say, hey, it doesn't boot anymore. I have tried everything, what is wrong. But, i would rather play it safe and find an alternative method of trying to reset the radio.

Does anyone have some suggestions, or am i pretty much left and stuck with using the ruu if i need to go back?

Sprint Htc Hero - Google Places Or Stock Browser Causing 100% Awake

I have been posting semi steadily about my 100% awake time. I've reset the phone twice now. The first time, my 8% awake time lasted one night before reverting to 100%. This most recent time, it lasted about 3 days around 8%. I've been trying to pay close attention to what apps i use to see if any of them are causing the 100% awake time, and as far as i can tell, the only difference last night (when my phone went back to 100% awake), and before (when it hovered between 8-12%) was extended use of the browser and google places. I had used both before in short uses (maybe 4-5 minutes at a time) and i was still running normal awake time, but last night i used them each for about 20-30 minutes. Since then, i'm at 100%.

Also, despite the upgrade and the hard resets, i found that i had to use the handcent workaround, but i don't see that as related here.

Htc Incredible - Mp3 Ringtones Quiter Than Stock / What To Do

I always disliked on my old flip phone how any ring tones i'd cut for it were inevitably quieter than the stock or ones you could buy.

I'm glad that the dinc is so easy to customize - just select the mp3 i want and put it in the right folder, and bam, ringtone. But i still can't help but feel that, despite being louder than my last phone, the mp3 ring tones are still quieter than the stock ones.

Or am i crazy?

Htc Evo 4g - Stock Ringtones Way Too Fast / Setting To Slow Down How Often It Repeats

Is there some setting to slow down how often a ringtone repeats? Like, their frequency is way too fast. I've tried all the stock ringtones, and even imported my old blackberry ringtone but the problem persists.

Hmm, that sounds kind of convoluted. If a ringtone is [ta da], the problem i'm having is that it's [tadatadatadada] instead of [ta da] [ta da]

I'm not sure if that helps at all. But do any of you have any idea how to fix this?

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 - 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 - 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?
