    Rooting is easy, and the benefits are huge. There is plenty of info on the how-to and there are tons of custom ROMs and update tweaks. I'm personally running NfiniteFX's stock Sprint -w- apps2SD. Overclocked, even my friends with EVOs are impressed.

    Rooting gives you options such as being able to use Android 2.2 and to speed things up. You can also have wifi tethering and speed up the phone some. I rooted mine about 5 months after having it for the same reasons that you are thinking of. I will say, you will still get bored. I now use my phone for business a lot which is why I no longer get bored with it.

    I have an EVO now because I didn't want to waste my yearly upgrade waiting on something that may not show up in the next year. I have to say I am very happy with the EVO. The Hero still has some life left in it with rooting and ROMs. I was quite content with my rooted Hero. It was like a brand new phone and I could have kept it for another year but I just had that itch and I had to scratch it.
    Read everything you can put your eyes on about rooting and then jump in you won't be disappointed.
