    It's a custom ROM that removes some of the Sprint crap that comes installed on the phone.

    Removes all sprint bloatware.
    Optimized .apk files for faster loading of all programs. (including rosie/sense)
    Different animation for screen changing.
    Clear lock screen
    Custom status bar icons
    Sweet linux emulated bootscreen
    Installs apps Wi-fi tether and spare parts

    Overall the phone is faster and more pleasureable.

    I would like to Root my phone, but to be honest I am a bit intimidated. I also only have Macs in my house...

    I have been running fresh 1.0 for a day now and I am sold on it. Everything seems to run so much better. I'm not really understanding the clear lock screen though as I still have a background.

    Is the phone loaded with the Fresh ROM supposed to take that long to startup each time you power it off/on? It seems like it's nearly doubled in time to turn back on...

    The first time it boots up it takes longer.

    From there it takes a few seconds less than stock i believe. I don't mind because atleast i see it doing something instead of just an HTC logo.

    But even the next 4 or 5 times I've rebooted it it seems to take longer to start up. Not really a problem, just an annoyance I guess
