    First time flashed cronos on my HTC Hero and I guess this is the latest available. I was using Froyo earlier from Villian ROMs. First few minutes of usage and no hiccups so far.. Will come back later if any is not working. Thanks for the work and not letting down Hero.

    i think that you got a bad dl...its super fast and not buggy wut so ever....and i believe the notifications are apps specific....not ROM specific...

    Hi, this is by far the best ROM I've tried for my Hero, and I've tried a fair few now!

    BUT one bit of functionality is missing - email searching. And I'm not talking about searching on the server, just searching the emails that are on the phone itself.

    I like the stock email client, and it performs better than almost any other that I have tried. But I can't search for emails - I get quite a lot, so scrolling (the only option for me currently) is pretty hopeless.

    I can't use the gmail client because my email is provided by a work Exchange server.

    I have tried using other email clients (K9, Maildroid, Aqua) but although they can search email, the Exchange server doesn't seem to play well with IMAP clients in various sporadic and annoying ways (probably the fault of the server not the clients). There are paid-for clients (Moxier, Touchdown), but frankly I don't think I should need to pay for this basic functionality.

    Surely there must be some way to search email on the stock client?!!

    Some other threads have suggested that simply activating the keyboard and starting typing is a way to search. It doesn't work for me. I have tried power search - again, it didn't work.

    Can anyone help?
    Thanks, Eudemus.
