    Hi Have just got my new hero:D which was running on a 1.7... Rom.
    Have updated straight away on day 2 after playing about a bit with it.
    whats the main benefits I can expect with this update. I was amazed with the phone when it was running on 1.7... Does it get even better!:D

    Supposedly fixed lag issues and improved RF performance.

    My Hero ran fine on the old ROM so if yours did then not a lot to be honest.

    Reported increase in speed but at the loss of nice features like the flip clock.

    Definite increase in speed and responsiveness, but yeah, you do lose a little bit of eye candy - the weather widget now only animates when it updates as opposed to every time you visit it, and the flip clock no longer animates at all, but those are the only things i've seen that have been removed.

    Well worth the update IMO, unless you have some kind of sexual fetish for flip-clocks.

    I personally noticed an improvement in radio signal (not that it was bad before, it's just better now!) and a fairly major speed increase when switching between the home screens, and also a bit of an improvement when loading web pages (over 3G, and in the same location but that could be due to the signal boost). I am on T-Mobile so your radio signal experiance will probably be differant to mine.

    I love the flip clock I wouldn't want to lose that!!

    I was thinking of updating this evening or tomrrow but 1.7 seems to be running fine for me. Apart from RF and speed issue are there any bugs that the new ROM fixes?

    The only difference I noticed was that when connecting to my car stereo via BT it now displays the contact name, not just the number.

    Just to clarify, you won't lose the flip clock, you just won't see the flip animation anymore. It will still look the same
