    When lurking a few weeks ago after my brother gave me this Sprint Hero, I saw a thread about some sort of memory application that gave you lots of unused memory without using the SD card. I searched but can't find it now. It will be months before our plan can upgrade for free or a very small fee so i want to use this phone until then.

    Does anyone know what app this is for the memory? The rom of the phone is well, not sure. It is rooted but there are a few rom zip files on the SD card.

    Anyway what is the most popular Hero rom now?

    I highly recommend the Aosp GB ROM. It will turn your Hero into a Super Hero. :D (cheeesy I know, but so true)

    +1 GB made me a believer :D but in my case it was simply because there were too many releases, so I wanted to give him a month to slow down but I guess he has not slowed down, LOL working like a dog, lol

    Should I install the memory mod first? On the xda link it says to download FR-recovery-v1.5.3-CustomMTD_S.zip and FR-boot-v1.5.3-CustomMTD_S.zip BUT on the xda linked page for those files I don't see them. Do I get the FR-recovery-v1.5.6-CustomMTD_S.zip and FR-boot-v1.5.6-CustomMTD_S.zip files instead?

    Can I keep the recovery image my brother put on this phone or do I need to replace it to use gingerbread and this memory mod? I have done some of this with friends on their phones (just helping and exploring, not the mastermind) so it's not all foreign to me but I am still a noob! The recovery file my brother has on the SD are the 1.6.2 recovery image.

    Oh - where do I find the actual file to download for the gingerbread ROM? I don't see it on the OP section of that link. Is it buried somewhere in the 500 pages of the thread? Oh noes!

    I haven't done Firerat, but what I have read makes me think you should switch rom, then install mod. The left me with 190mb. Best so far.

    Yep, I reflashed asop0. 9.9.2 again to compare and got 130mb with that. In addition, the move to SD seems to allow on more apparent than

    Day 2 and I'm pretty happy with it.
