    Lol i rooted yesturday and flashed fresh yesturday. I can't stop, i like the control that comes with root. Um i suggest flashing fresh 2.3.3 just to try the whole process because its not as complicated as i thought! Just follow the steps and always make a nandroid backup!

    just save the custom rom to the root of your sd card then reboot into recovery then flash it!

    it's as simple as that!

    but don't forget to wipe that azz!! lol *always wipe before flashing different roms; create nandroid backups in case something goes wrong like jxr94 said*

    as long as it's made for the Sprint CDMA Hero then you'll be fine.. if ya ever flash one made for the GSM HTC Hero (European version) then you'll have a brick..

    okay I updated to the new fresh rom!! I love it! Thanks again for the help!

    Rockstar: Once you d/l the rom you want you just mount your phone to your computer, and copy the zip file on to the sd card.. don't put it in a folder just put it on the card!

    I followed these steps and it worked great: How To: Load a Custom ROM on Your HTC Hero | TheUnlockr

    after poking around some other threads i found this/

    anyways i followed those directions. installed clockwork rom manager from the market. it gives you a different recovery. anyways, it deleted my rom i was about to install so i flashed back to the stock recovery, and the nandroid backup works just fine now.
