    What exactly is this you've linked to? It was my understanding the flash 10.1 beta wouldn't work on the hero.

    Its the link to the flash update, I was trawling the web and found the link, installed it and replaces the current flash version on the hero. it works just a tad slow although I am on an unrooted hero so not overclocking. It was my understanding it wouldnt work too but it does.

    Yeah I had a look around and it seems there are two versions. The nexus one flash.apk and one modified to work on 2.1 by replacing flash lite.

    Unfortunately that's one disadvantage to running 2.2 custom roms at the moment: you don't meet the requirements for either.

    I have only tried 2.1 cr's. I didnt think 2.2 were stable enough yet? I am wondering if overclocking on a custom rom would help with the speed of the flash update?

    Overclocking would definitely help. Unfortunately, since I'm running a vanilla rom I can't try this out.

    Froyd 1.1.1 is a very stable 2.2 ROM. Perhaps not as stable as Villain12 for example, but pretty dam good. Much faster too, since 2.2 runs apps quicker. Like I said though, being a vanilla ROM it can't run the version of flash you've found.

    That link you PMed me is indeed the same one as I found on XDA (thanks for not posting the link here :) ). For anyone else interested in trying it, this is the dev's post on XDA. You just need a phone running 2.1 with HTC Sense :)

    No worries, thought it best not too link it here. I installed the 2.2 Fusion Rom last night and downloaded the flash apk and it works. Actually the Rom is pretty good for a beta, much better than the stock 2.1 Rom. Minimalistic springs to mind.

    Yeh it did for me, turned out that 10.1 flash apk I downloaded for it wasnt compatible with 2.2 (as you mentioned). uninstalled and worked fine
