    HELLO - this is my first thread:):cool:

    so, last night i spent around 30 mins rooting my hero using the guide at the unlokr , with the latest rom from htc
    but...now what - i want to have more fun :) -
    what have you guys done now that you have rooted?

    i have heard people say get gumbo kernel ( something like that??)
    but what exactly is it? - does it replace your rom ?? i tried googleing it but it all got too technical for me....and i am quite technically minded :)

    also what this about fresh 1.1? what is it :(lol

    finally.... i would download setcpu but how dangerous is it, and is it necessary to overclock ?
    thanks!!!!!

    I wiped, installed ROM, then installed radio. Then you should have a brand new spanky custom ROM.
    There are other flavours available, but the Modaco is the most fully featured and stable.

    Maybe a stupid question but can you do this on your phone or has to do it first on your pc. I have a mac and `htc doesnt support mac.

    See the sticky here. Your only options, if you're on a MAC, are to either "borrow" the use of a PC running Windows or use a recovery image to install via one of the update.zip packages found here.

    Depending on the existing ROM, it might not even be necessary to flash the recovery. With 1.76.xxx.xx it was possible to "fastboot boot recovery.img" and install the update.zip.
