    As always, Fresh 2.4.0 is very reliable [ROM] 08/30/10 | Fresh Hero 2.4.0 | Incremental Update For Freshness - xda-developers Only downside, developer has moved on to the Evo but many still run Fresh so there is still good support for the rom

    Any rom from nfinite will be good also [ROM] NFX-Hero 2.2.1.update1, 9/5/2010 Friendstream+Deodexed/ODEX+JIT & more - xda-developers or [ROM] NFX Sprint 2.31.651.7 STOCK Deoxed/Odex Updated:10/14/2010 - xda-developers nfinite is still working on the Hero, so updates may happen but these are stable

    If you want speed with no bloatware at all, look at this [ROM][UPDATE 10/25] LiquidSense 2.1 Stable|PngOpt|ZipAlgn|Odex|No Bloat - xda-developers This rom is based of the 2.31.651.7 rom from nfinite

    Maybe worth creating a thread with all the ROMs then all you have to do is C&P or add it to your Sig, LOL You are doing a great job !! ;)

    Hey, thanks for the help. I did search...and search some more and everything seems to be scattered around and in other posts that you have to search through.

    I figured i just boldly ask the question so other people can find it a little easier.

    I just flashed NFX 2.1 for a prl update. Wow! I couldn't believe how similar to Sense it was (almost identical), and faaaast. I don't know if that has anything to do with the fact that it was the first time it was booted, but it felt exactly like my Hero the day I first powered it on.

    If you want to see all the roms, divided into groups (Sense, non Sense, 1.5, 2.1, 2.2 ) go over to xda. Their wiki for HTC Hero has a complete list and links to all of this. I have had my Hero for over a year and tried a few roms. I like Fresh but always read and contemplate changing. I am waiting on a stable 2.2 Sense rom as this is my lifeline to the world and most importantly family.

    I wouldn't wait for the stable 'sense' 2.2 rom, there are 2 stable AOSP 2.2 roms. Just add a few customizations with ADW or LP and you are good to go. Anyways, the CM6/aosp roms will be faster, imo;)

    You will have to flash over to a sense rom and update prl from there. What is your prl now?

    Nandroid
    Flash a sense rom (fresh for example)
    Update prl
    Nandroid restore back to CM6

    PRL will be updated in CM6

    Yep, that is the current prl. You can also try Liquid sense rom, it's much smaller and it boots up much quicker, fyi;)
