    First off, thanks to everyone on this forum for all the hints, tips and tutorials. I now have a Hero as fast as any touch phone I've played with. This is my mix:

    1. rooted with fresh 1.1
    2. gumbo kernal loaded

    BIGGEST CHANGE!!
    3. unloaded HTC Sense and now use Home

    Once I switched to home, everything is instant. The first noticable change I made so far. Gumbo was noticable on how much memory stays free but I didn't really see speed in using the phone itself. I never knew the phone could actually perform this way. I miss the visuals but the speed makes it a non issue. All I need now is to see if the widgets i use now in replace of HTC widgets don't mess with my battery.

    One question, the only thing not working is the messaging icon don't have a count on it anymore. was that a HTC thing?

    I liked Home but there is only one clock to choose from.

    I use digital clock widget, a small simple digital clock in the middle of the screen is what I was using with sense.

    Some people get pissed at me for making a couple 2.1 update threads and this is like what? The 148th thread on rooting in just the last week? :rolleyes: They really all need to be merged, waste of space.

    You really want to see some speed, install Pancake 0.1 Try chromatic's 2nd version with sprint nav only. Amazing.
