    +1. Mee too. Even the PC games have eased up quite a bit. Ok, I'll be honest, they have stopped altogether.

    My entire evening after the heathens are put to bed consists of: Beer, Android Forums, and rocking back and forth until the Nandroid backup has completed. :rolleyes:

    I rooted my Hero just three months in. I was flashing every update of cm till I got aosp. I was happy. Then my speaker broke on my beloved Hero. I was at my anniversary date so I got the EVO. This thing is so fast coming from a Hero, who needs to do anything to it.
    One day later, I'm rooted........And so it continues.

    Its a piece of cake.....when you finally root your Evo though, your Hero is going to feel neglected ;)

    I sold me Hero off after I rooted my Evo because it started collecting dust.

    Yep, same boat here. We recently upgraded our family plan to 3 EVO 4Gs, (18 yr old daughter, wife, and I) and the 18 yr old asked me about jailbreaking. "It's called rooting, jailbreaking is for iphones." I have one down and 2 to go. I ask them if they want me to flash theirs yet, and I get this wild look of fear in their eyes. They grip their Evos to their bosoms like I was asking to take away very soul. Yet, it is only a matter of time, because as they complain about their battery life, asking where the charger is, I laugh and tell them where my battery is at. They look at me with scorn in their eyes.
    I do highly recommend Azreal X as a ROM to try. I'm running 3.1, but they just released 4.0 (ggggrrrrrrrrrrrrr!) yesterday. Yeah, that's right, I'm upset, because I absolutely ADORE my phone's performance on 3.1. They can't make this any better, can they? I see the new features, sigh heavily, and click on the download link.

    Oh, BTW, has anyone named theirs yet? Just curious.

    I too am constantly getting in trouble with my fiancee.....At times she feels like she's competing with my Evo for time! Terrible huh lol.

    I should get her an android phone....There's no price for peace of mind in the household.

    That worked out quite well for me. I bought my wife an Evo. She won't let me touch it, though, lol.

    I started letting her play with Evo here and there, she likes to play angry birds and fruit ninja, but once she gets on it, it's hard to get it back! :D

    Welcome andygu3! ;) I've rooted, but am still on stock rom for now....This is an awesome phone. You won't regret this decision.

    Lots to read here....start with this: Rooting for Dummies.

    Hahaha, same here. All my gaming activity has stopped and I am constantly on these forums reading up on different ROM's and customizations. Charging my phone twice a day because I can't put it down... the woman just sighs at me when I get caught playing with it and not listening to her :(
