    If this has been posted already I am sorry, but I have a Hero, and am thinking of switching to the Moment if this works.

    I am not taking credit for the icons the person who posted it here got the apps, but apparently, these are APK's of HTC apps from the Hero (people, Mail, Messages) that change the icon on the hero to the Eclair style icons, So the OP says it will not change the functionality of the app just the icon, so essentially it is just installing the HTC App, with a new icon.

    What I am taking credit for if this works, is downloading the HTC APK's on the Moment and seeing if they successfully work on the Moment. If it does work you will have the functionality of the Moment's keyboard with the HTC apps. So if anyone can try installing one of them and posting on here if it works, I would really appreciate it, because I would definetly make the switch to the Moment, and everyone that has the Moment can Enjoy the HTC apps.
    Thanks.

    I asked the Person who posted that thread, and he said they are the full versions, does anyone want to test this out, he said it should work, just do a backup.

    lol true, but I don't have a moment. If I did, I would have done it already. I think it will work, The OP on the other thread says its the full HTC app, all you would have to do is allow downloads of apps outside of the market, and install the app on the phone, right?

    I installed astro file explorer and tried installing it and it says it installed, but opened up the stock app for whatever HTC app it said it "successfully"
    I didn't have that much time because I was using the one at the Sprint Store lol,
    But I would assume with a rooted moment you would be able too.
