I'm close to rooting my HTC Hero (Sprint). I don't mind the Android 2.1 that's on it at all, and I don't need anything beyond that, but I have several (meaning, a bunch) of bloatware apps on it that I'd like to remove, take out back, and beat mercilessly for ever even being on this phone. Sprint NASCAR for one. That and the Facebook app seems to have been corrupted such that I can't even up date it, the app just freezes upon opening, and I cannot uninstall it (at least not that I can find). I do not use this as a cell phone but just as a glorified touch-PDA/MP3/app machine. I have a 32GB SD card on it. Any suggestions? I am looking for a NOOB-FRIENDLY way of rooting this thing without bricking it.
