    I'm still curious about this, in case anyone cares to offer an opinion, but I decided to go ahead with CM6 without flashing the radio and it appears all is well! Very exciting for a noob like me to get through this process without any real problems and have a functioning phone that's much faster than before!

    I love this forum!

    I will not flash any radios b/c I completely ruined my husbands hero by doing it! It wouldn't even turn on!! Good luck! Maybe one day I'll get the nerve to try it again lol

    The only way you can ruin your Sprint HTC Hero by flashing a radio is if you flash the wrong radio. Most likely this would happen if you flashed a GSM HTC Hero radio instead of a CDMA HTC Hero radio.

    From what I have learned, you really only need to flash a new radio if you are experiencing lousy reception or very slow data rates with your current radio. If that is working fine, then you might as well leave it alone.
