I have seen a lot of posts saying that people once they rooted they lost access to some of the apps they had with android 1.5. This is an HTC hero rom that was ported over to the eris that I am running right now. With this rom which is running 2.1 you will get access to the protected apps on the market (the apps that come up missing). Read the known bugs section though. Included is an app that circumvents the power down hang and I actully like using it more then shutting down the phone the convential way hope this helps. People running eris with 2.1 don't have access because it has not been officially released yet. As always do a Nandroid backup if you decide to use this ROM. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=663893 Hope this helps.
