    What gives?? I just installed 2.1 on my wifes Hero yesterday and when I go to switch to Live Wallpapers, it doesnt give me the option of picking them from a Live Wallpaper folder. I installed the Fresh Rom on my hero and it added the Live Wallpapers folder for me to pick from. Anybody know what Im doing wrong???

    I don't think so. they are having a tough time just getting 2.1 to run on a lot of phones. I don't think that they are going to put much more effort into the hero, now that the evo is right around the corner....

    Is your wifes phone rooted? I guess I assumed you loaded up the official 2.1....

    No, her's is stock...I rooted mine, and I thought I crashed the thing so I didnt chance hers. Actually I cant get mine to run Live Wallpapers with Sense UI, and Im afraid to mess with it much more. Kinda wanted to check out other custom ROM's but Im not that confident I wont lock the thing up if I try it again,,,Pretty much n00b city around here! :( I have my EVO preordered for the 4th, Yipee!

    The only ROM that I ever got LWP to run & stick on was RegawMod, if he comes out with overclocked rom I'll be going right back to his themed ROM.

    Since my phone is Rooted, is it easy to install a different ROM?? I know there are tons of threads on how to do it, but is there a quick and easy, no hassle or B.S way of doing it???

    You mean it will be updated in unoffical ROMs, right? Flipz isn't talking about Sprint and HTC fixing any particular bug, is he? I looked at what I think is the Flipz site you're talking about, and it looks like bug tracking and blogging about the unofficial homebrew ROMs, etc.

    +1 To the list of people who are sorely disappointed with the stock 2.1 "upgrade" for the Hero.

    I just went ahead, bit the bullet and switched to a "friend's" Verizon family plan, now I have a screaming fast, OC'd Droid that is faster (in terms of Linpack score) than an Incredible.

    honestly, the super easiest way to hack the phone is unrevoked you download a file and its done. i was so surprised because i did it the long way first.
