    I have MoDaCo 1.1 and I can't update my firmware? I do all the normal steps settings, about phone, update and it checks for an update, but finds nothing and I know I am running on the old 1.29.651.1 How do I get the update online or another way from my phone?

    You will have to flash a ROM with the MR incorporated into it. Look here for ROMS

    I can't install MoDaCo 3.0 do you know of any other roms that work with the CDMA Hero?

    That's because Modaco 3.0 isnt for the CDMA hero. And I gave you a link to all known CDMA ROMs. There's not a lot of them. but the few are very nice.

    Well like I said I'm on the 1.1 version and is running on the old firmware. Do you know a specific ROM that work on the current firmware? Which ROM do you use? Thanks.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but if you have rooted your phone and flashed the Fresh ROM but I wanted to try the MoDaCo ROM. Is there something I should do first? Do I need to reset the phone/go to the backup I created when I rooted? Or can you just flash the the new ROM and it will make the changes needed? Thanks

    I have tried the fresh rom, however it does not seem to work for me. It restarts and keeps saying a forced close and keeps looping the same force close.

    rm -r /data/dalvik-cache
    rm -r /data/boot-cache

    will solve your force close problem!

    Enjoy!

    Thanks will22, but where do I enter the commands? Do I do them on my computer? I tried but said 'rm' is not recognized. How do I get into the Hero programing? Thanks I'm new to all this.

    It force closes because of HTC Setup Wizard

    Connect your phone to the computer and mount it.

    Then in command prompt on the comp navigate to the AndroidSDK/tools folder.
    Then type: adb devices
    You should see your phone ID - meaning everything is fine.
    Next type (hit Enter after each line):

    adb shell
    su
    rm -r /data/dalvik-cache
    rm -r /data/boot-cache


    That's it. Reboot the phone, and enjoy fresh rom

    Sorry I did all the steps and there was a pause after the last remove and nothing changed. I rebooted my phone and still get the force close with HTC Setup Wizard. Any other ideas?

    Great!
    This one is much faster than modaco 1.1, and more free memory :)
