    Just download the rom zip file, put it on the root of the sd card (not in any folders), turn off your phone, boot to recovery by holding the home button while pressing the power button, wipe data (factory reset) and dalvik cache. Once you've wiped those both, go to flash zip from sd card, find the rom zip file and let er rip. Make sure the rom zip file is on the root of the sd card though or you wont be able to find it from the recovery menu, also because otherwise you'll have wiped everything and lost all your info for nothing, good luck.

    After locating the zip file using Linda File Manager I opened the zip and also extracted it but neither did the install. What is it I am missing? Could it be because I somehow unrooted my phone?

    That's not the proper way to install it. You need to leave the file as a zip, and it needs to be on the root level of the SD card. Then boot into the recovery mode, by first turning off the phone. Then hold down the home button while holding the red "power" button at the same time, unitl you see the black screen with the green writing. Then select backup/restore. Make a nandroid backup. After that is finished, select wipe, and wipe both data and dalvik...then select flash zip from sd. Next, reboot and enjoy your new rom!

    All this is based on the fact that you are rooted. If not, go HERE and re-read the procedure to root your phone. Let us know how it goes.

    Yes I finally figured out how to get rerooted using the How to Root Sprint 2.1 Release for CDMA Hero guide. Thanks to your easy to follow help I was also able to get this fresh 2.3.3 working. Was nervous for a few minutes as I couldn't get the droid to stop dancing but after a battery pull everything looks good. Thanks again for your help.

    What kinda battery life is everyone getting? And more importantly how heavy are you using your Hero?

    I've found that with my normal use (pretty heavy use by most standards) regardless of the rom I'm currently running, I'm lucky to stay off a charger for 12 hours.

    I think I'm in the same boat as you Joe... no battery improvements on any ROMs I've used in the past including this one.

    it really depends on a lot of things.. signal strength... how much use in phone calls.. how much surfing... how much texting.. how much data use (streaming audio or video).. that said, an average day for me including a handful of calls, 30-50 text messages... 15-20 emails.. limited surfing I can get 24+ hours.. but my signal is 5-6 bars most of the time. if my signal sucks (1-2 bars) then my battery life drops real fast.

    I just flashed this rom and it still has the original lock screen, but it is listed with the vanilla lock. What's up with that? Is there something I missed, or can I just flash a vanilla lock screen onto this rom?

    you have to go through the Fresh Updater to get the vanilla lock, he has step by step instructions on his website

  16. Joehunni

    Did you flash the remover zip before the kernel?
  17. Herofreak

    Herofreak Newbie

    6pi need to read that whole first post in that link, your supposed to flash the remover zip before any of those kernels.

    ok I did the moduler remover thing and after you flash those two things will it re boot in the normal time or will it take a little longer?

    Might be off topic but I need some help. I am trying to get the wireless tether on fresh 2.3.3 to work and I keep getting this error 67 code. I have read a million posts on how to fix it but nothing is working. Does anyone have a suggestion? Every time I press the Internet sharing the mobile network says it is trying to connect and then I get the error. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    I flashed fresh 2.3.3 and have been having a problem with my cpu speed it is stuck at 248 and my phone is really sluggish. Is there any way to change the speed of this phone or do I need to get one of the overclock apps and kernels? Has anyone else had this type of problem?

    Well after trying ROM out for a few weeks I just went back to 2.0d. This ROM was a little laggy and i couldnt deal with random reboots. Couldn't deal with how slow YouTube streamed either. I'm gonna stick with 2.0d all the way until group is working well on our Hero's

    OK so I'm having a few problems with fre4sh 2.3.3,

    1) I get a force close anytime I try to use any app that uses GPS, sprint nav, google maps, you name it, if I open it I get an FC message

    2) My version of launcherpro doesn't seem to be working, I follow the procedure to use it but when I press the home button and choose launcherpro I get an error message that flashes so fast that I can't even read what it says.

    Any ideas?
