    Firmware version 2.1-update1
    Build number fresh rom 2.3.3 by flipz:D

    The difference between yours and mine, Fresh is based off eclair/2.1, the CM6 is froyo/2.2. Sprint will NOT upgrade the Sprint Heros to 2.2.

    Which one is better? That's a decision you will have to make. Fresh has Sense UI which is what the HTC Evo/Hero runs. The CM6 rom is vanilla android/AOSP, which is WITHOUT the Sense UI.
