    if you're rooted.. get Fresh 2.0d or Damage Control 2.0.7.
    put the zip file in the root of teh SD card. boot into recovery. wipe data/factory reset and wipe davlik. then flash the zip

    Everything you guys are asking is in that guide/faq.

    There is a list of ROM's here (Taken Directly from the guide)
    The concept for flashing a ROM is the same as described. Make sure you specifically read about each ROM before flashing it though, as the DEV may include directions (such as making sure to wipe [also in the guide]).

    he has already rooted teh phone.. no need to root it all over again..

    copy Fresh 2.0d (or what ever flavor of 2.1 you want as long as it's made for CDMA Hero) to the root of the SD card.

    reboot phone while holding HOME. you will be in a green and black menu (recovery menu) make sure to make a nand backup. then select wip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe davlik
    from main recovery menu select flash file from SD
    select the ROM (fresh2.0d for example) hit home when prompted.

    the phone will reboot it does take time for the first boot since it has to rebuild the davlik cache (10+ minutes is not uncommon)

    ( all this is covered in the rooting guide at the top of the forum with step by step instruction )
