    I have a sprint hero and i'm thinking about rooting. If I root will I be able to access all the apps currently in the market that are unavailable to hero users because the hero runs 1.5? Also does anyone have any new info about the 2.1 release date? Thanks

    If you root and the ROM is 1.6 or higher yes you will be able to get apps that you can't get now.

    At least you can on the G1.

    I beleave battery life is just how you use your device. If you dont use alot of widgets and dim your screen, your battery will last longer. However speeding up your device can save some battery as it doesnt take as long to do stuff.
