    Sorry, a bit general and probably another numpty question (bits covered in
    other threads...)

    I have a sim free Hero (now on O2). Was working ok, but now seems to be
    getting very slow. I think my ROM is very old:

    Firmware Version: 1.5
    Baseband Version: 63.18.55.06U_6.35.04.25
    Kernel Version: 2.6.27-a5504199
    Build Number: 1.76.405.6 146733
    Software Version: 1.0.0.A6288

    What's my best option? Upgrade to the standard HTC ROM or go with
    Modaco? Are there other options? Is the android version linked to the ROM
    upgrade and if so, worth waiting for 2.1?

    If it helps, I don't really use the phone too advanced. Sync to google and
    yahoo mail, some internet, music and a few apps.

    thanks in advance.

    This is VERY old. The current build numbers are 2.73.xxx.xx and it while they are still Android 1.5 they are a lot faster.

    Even though 2.1 will be out soon it will be worth upgrading to the current latest version. You can get it here

    Went with the HTC upgrade. Simple process and seems to be a massive
    improvement.

    thanks
