    i was looking at the thread "share how you use your screens" and i was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction on how to customize my phone. I liked the phone/app/widget buttons that similar to the sense ones but flat instead of rounded and see through, custom screenlocks, and unique icons that some people have. My phone is rooted, are these customizations from roms or from apps in the market?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Different roms will have different customizations. AOSP roms like CM6 are pretty much vanilla android, you will have to find and download different things to fill your needs. If you like the Sense UI, those roms will more likely have HTC sense widgets in the rom.

    What are you on now?

    Right now I'm running rooted 2.1 and splitting time between stock htc sense and playing a little with launcherpro.

    If you like the Sense UI look at these: Fresh [ROM] 08/30/10 | Fresh Hero 2.4.0 | Incremental Update For Freshness - xda-developers

    or Zen [ROM] Zen-ROM Updated 08-30-2010. - xda-developers

    or NFX [ROM] NFX-Hero 2.2.1.update1, 9/5/2010 Friendstream+Deodexed/ODEX+JIT & more - xda-developers

    or NFX based off of the newest Sprint update http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=790889

    Do you know if Fresh 2.4 can be installed with rom manager? Also would I be able to return to factory by running the sprint 2.1 ruu?

    Yes you can install fresh with rom manager;)

    Why do you want to run the ruu?

    I was just wondering about the ruu for returning back to stock just in case the phone has issues, this is my second refurb, so ive had some bad luck with faulty hero's.

    Think I will give fresh 2.4.0 a try. Thanks a lot for your help and guidance.

    Just do a Nandroid backup before you flash a new ROM and you can easily return to your stock setup with that. That is always the recommended course of action after rooting your handset and installing the recovery image.

    If all else fails, yes, you can reflash the stock Android 2.1 RUU. You will lose your root, but you will be back to factory specification.

    OK so I created a backup in rom manager, now when i select download rom then select fresh, i get error occurred while processing rom list. Is there a qr code for fresh 2.4.0 or what steps need to be taken to install from sd card?

    You should be able to install it through ROM Manager. You can also boot into recovery by holding volume down button and pressing the power button.

    Of course, you would need to download the actual ROM first and put it on your microSD card. Once you are in recovery there are options to flash the ROM, but first you will want to do a wipe of everything and then you can flash it.

    Thanks guys, I got fresh downloaded and installed. It has the phone/drawer buttons like I wanted too. Any suggestions for good places to look for lock screens, widgets, or icons?
