    I tried very hard to brick my phone yesterday (I actually did but I recovered) but all it taught me was that I can unbrick it. Now I am really determined to find a stable update.zip file to update my sprint hero which is not going to be upgraded by Sprint. If anyone find one please let me know. I tried one for a nexus, I think from the UK but it bricked the phone.

    Check out the CyanogenMod6 (CM6) RC1 rom over at the xda-developers forum. That is what I am using to run Froyo on my CDMA Hero. Worked like a charm!

    It's pretty solid for not being the final version. There's a few bugs every now and then but if the final release is going to be better then this, it's going to be a great rom. Check it out, I don' think you'll be disappointed :D

    Gatta agree with CM6. Been running it for about 2 weeks now and running the nightlies (daily updates) about once a week and its been a really great experience. I had some intermittant gps problems, but since doing the 8/29 update, havnt had any problems with gps location.

    Haven't been on the Froyo ROM for a while, does anyone know if the browser is improved, is it supporting flash?

    ok i'm a little confused. to "brick" one's phone is to cause the phone to become "like a brick", as in you have screwed it up so bad it is useless other than as a paper weight. so what exactly were you to trying to do?

    So since its not a 'final' ROM, this is why people are flashing the 'nightlies' correct?

    The nightlies don't can sometimes break things as well from what I have heard because it is a computerized update of the rom.

    Nightlies are quite stable and there is nothing broken in the most recent nightly.

    That said, when an uncapped kernel is flashed, a battery tweak is flashed, things may begin to break;)

    Flashing the nightlies erases everything if you are just running the cm6 rc1 correct?

    This is what he said about the brick:
    But why on earth would someone purposefully try and brick their phone?

    On subject, yes the CM6 RC1 runs great, I haven't updated any nightlies since RC1 because it runs good enough for me and I wanted to wait for the final. I have recently went back to a modified stock because I miss the rosie, and the stock clock (although I did find an almost exact replacement from the market, including the animations).

    No, flashing the nightlies does not erase anything. You can flash a nightly over another nightly(or RC1)

    You do NOT have to wipe data, just wipe cache and Davlik cache

    Make a nandroid first before you flash a new nightly

    Yes, you have to root, and there are links all over the site if you search "nightlies".
