Cry My heart felt goodbyes!!! :'(

Well I will be trading my Hero in tomorrow at C Spire for a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play! Yeah I know that it is an older phone (new phone for C Spire since we get all the other carriers outdated phones) but for the past few months I have been having horrendous battery life out of my Hero! Everyone I talk to says the Xperia Play has wonderful battery life even after playing games on it all day! Plus right now I can trade in my Hero and not have to pay my replacement fee and the Xperia Play is $70 when I sign a new contract and I get a $50 mail in rebate! I WILL ONLY BE PAYING $20 FOR THIS AWESOME PHONE!!!! Don't get me wrong I will miss my lil Hero! It was my first Android and touch screen! I remember about a month after I got it I was searching the web trying to find out new things about it and I keep seeing ROOTING, rooting, RoOtInG!!! I looked it up and it lead me to here first! I learned all about rooting and then I said to myself, "I can do that!". So I followed all the steps and before I knew it, I WAS ROOTED!!! Then I learn about flashing other ROMS, which lead me to XDA! That is when I became a FLASHWHORE!!! LOL! I drove my hubby crazy til he finally let me root his Hero! He moved on to the Desire and I bugged him til he let me root it as well! I have had good times with my lil Hero and took it farther then I was supposed to go! I would not give up my lil Hero so easily if it was not for this battery life and now it is freezing really bad! I have tried everything I know to do and all y'all have tried to help me with but nothing seems to work! It was finally settled as a hardware problem! It will be hard to hand over my Hero, we had a good thing going, but maybe me and the Xperia Play can strike up a good flame together! I sure hope! I want to thank every last one of y'all that helped me through this unforgettable journey in my life! I will never forget all the kindness and determination you gave to me! THANKS!!! See ya in the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play forums! I will be rooted and running a custom ROM in no time! Ha!

R.I.P My lil Hero!!! :"(

I totally respect your decision for moving to a newer handset, especially given the small price point to upgrade. The hardware in the Sprint HTC Hero is considered first generation Android in specification, so a bump in CPU speed, RAM capacity, and other aspects will be nice.

I think you will be able to continue your rooting and flashing routine with your new handset. That one is also great for playing all kinds of games, so I hope you enjoy it.
