Followed the various tutorials to MANUALLY root my Hero as I am not ready to flash a new ROM - just wanted the ability to delete Sprint bloatware & free up memory. Everything seemed fine. Then I followed these directions: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=581635 to remove several Sprint apps - Sprint_NFL.apk Sprint_Nscar.apk htc.TwitterWidget.apk Quickoffice_HTC_1.0.1.apk com.htc.TwitterWidget.apk as well as any associated .odex files - but I still have very little memory left - only 34 MB. I'm pretty sure those apps are gone - I don't see them when I browse the files on my Hero, and they aren't in the app list. But now I'm feeling paranoid. Forget the title of this post - I'm pretty sure that I'm rooted because I can use the wireless tethering app. Better question/issue: Are there other ways to save internal memory? Thanks!
