    I followed all the directions to root my phone. I got it rooted and I flashed the new damagecontrol 2.07. rebooted the phone and when it boots up it says "hero quietly brilliant" and it goes to the "sprint emblem" and it goes back to the "hero quietly brilliant" screen, etc. It is like it just loops or keeps repeating itself. I let it do this for about 5 minutes, then decided to do a nandroid recovery and start all over. Is this normal and should I have let it run its course or did I do something wrong???

    Did you make sure to wipe both data and dalvik before flashing the ROM?

    power off the phone... then power on while holding HOME
    once in the green and black RA menu, choose wipe. from there you can wipe data/factory reset and another option is wipe Davlik. do both of those, then reboot the phone.

    copy the ROM to the SD card (just like you did for Fresh) wipe the phone again (both data and davlik). flash the zip (just like you did with fresh)

    How do I apply Sprint apps if the Rom doesn't have it? I would like to put sprint navigation on my phone if I can. Thanks for your help.

    Flipz has all of the stock apps available for download, you can just extract the zip file and copy whatever .apk files to your SD card. Then use ES File Explorer or Astro to install.

    if you flash a 2.1 ROM (Fresh 2.0d or damage control 2.0.7 for example) you can use google maps with turn by turn navigation. much better than Sprint Nav..
