    ok... looks like it will be a few weeks before Sprint pushes a "bug free" 2.1

    I install the leak via RUU exe file.

    Phone is trashed.. completely useless as a phone, have to pull the battery reboot and quickly make a call before it locks up or crashes.

    Can you guys tell me how to roll back, hack, crack, smack, or otherwise install a working ROM?

    thx in advance

    this is the exact reason many of us will never root and flash no matter how many times people say they love it

    It is impossible to go back to 1.5 stock. The HBoot is updated and it will fail if you try to use 1.56 RUU.


    Your only options are to root the phone and install either a new 2.1 ROM or a 1.5 ROM.

    However, I think the lockups you are having are due to the audio problem. I chose option 2 in the following thread. Then I installed the Audio fix on the XDA forums (it is an ERIS file that works on the hero). This may solve your problems.

    Here are the links.

    Sprint 2.1 leak - Android Central Forums (use option 2)

    [FIX] Audio Loss Final - xda-developers (Use the Eris File after you install the ROM)

    Edit:

    Oh snap. First you have to root your phone. Use the following thread:

    Don't say I didn't warn you guys...I posted several times about the audio loss issue with the 2.1 leak.

    Scary stuff, I keep waffling... root, don't root? But now, I think I will just wait for Sprint to provide the Real Official 2.1. I am happy with my Hero as it is now.

    I found that Proximity Sensor was causing me some issues. So I uninstalled it, and learned to hold the phone slightly away from my face for 30 seconds till the display turns off. No more issues.

    Edit: I realize that root is not the same as installing this leaked pre 2.1.

    Yeah the method I posted above has been working great for me.

    The only thing missing is the Mic input on the keyboard. Oh and the new HTC widgets

    Love it right now

    Hey can you get into recovery on 2.1 and just wipe and set back to basically the stock 2.1?

    The name of the file is wrong (in the text the person posted)... u need to delete the two "." in the flash file when you type it into the command prompt, It should be v152.img not v 1.5.2.img

    Good luck OP.

    REMINDER TO ALL - Regardless of if others say it is safe; all rooting, flashing, hacking, etc CAN break your phone! Always proceed with caution.

    Yes I have done it numerous times! It's not the traditional RM that is normal, but the option to wipe back to factory defaults is there!

    Check the pre 2.1 thread I have a jpeg of the menu in there!

    I think the Op wants to get a better working version though. The 2.1 RUU he has on there has audio issues which are widespread. He needs to ROOT it according to the above thread so that he can install a better ROM and audio fix

    Just a shot... try flashing the 2.1 RUU again and see if it holds better.
