    Hey guys,

    I am new here, but am an active member on the XDA forums and the T-Mobile forums. At 8:30 PM, EST today, July 10, I will be hosting a chat on how to root and install HERO (JacHero's 2.5r2), or another Rom if you so wish. I have an easy way to root. Total process takes 1 hour or so. If you interested, please post here.

    ANYONE, that wants to "join in", needs the following BEFORE hand. This is just to make things quicker and easy. Last week, I spent a total of 22 hours (NOT exaggerating) helping a member.

    This will help you install a HERO ROM. IF you don't want to use Hero, thats fine.

    Things you must have and need before hand.

    1. A freshly formatted SD card (2, 4 or more GB) and an SD card Reader. These things are very important. Must be formatted to FAT32.

    2. Wifi connection (if possible)

    3. New Radio found here: http://sapphire-port-dream.googlecode.com/files/ota-radio-2_22_19_26I.zip

    4. Haykuro's SPL found here: http://sapphire-port-dream.googlecode.com/files/spl-signed.zip

    Have these downloaded and CLEARLY labeled so there is no confusion when you install them.

    5. Paragon Partiton manager found here: Thank you for downloading Paragon Partition Manager (Personal) from Download.com

    6. JAC Hero Rom, version 2.5 found here: Index of /justanotherdev

    I recommend having a back up SD card just in case, but an SD card reader is a MUST. ($7-$10 bucks at Staples)

    Disclaimer: I am in NO WAY responsible for damages that CAN/MAY occur with rooting, including bricking your phone, however, if you follow directions, you should be fine. I have yet to have a problem I cannot get out of with these phones, BUT it is possible to severly damage your phone.

  8. As far as builds go yes there are builds based on specific origins like rogers, t-mo US etc... however most newer/custom builds include all the best features from all locations and are usually based on ADP... if you want to see what builds are out there go here : Android Build Downloads
