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.

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 - Browser - Access Withdraw Function On Paypal Acct

I tried to access the "withdraw" function on my paypal acct from the hero's stock browser, and wasn't able to select "withdraw". Apparently it is a "hover over" link, which then provides a drop down menu when used from my laptop, but i couldn't figure out how to access that particular link on the paypal website. Is this truely not possible? Or am i just missing something obvious? Other than tryng a different browser (which i don't particularly want to do)

Motorola Droid - Google Places Address Turns To Lat/lon

Whenever i use google places to lookup up a location, it does a fairly good job of finding it. But, when i select the address to have it map the location, it does so using the latitude and longitude of the location versus the address (which is has). This makes directions or navigation impossible without having to re-enter the address. Is this a "feature" or am i missing some setting?

2ndly and more important to me: google sync on google chrome. Is there an app to have my synced bookmarks on chrome into my evo? Maybe like just a bookmarks widget or app which syncs to my google chrome bookmarks. That would be sweet.

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?
