    Fastest 2.1 rom would be LiquidSense with infinite kernel

    Fastest 2.2 rom would aospMod 0.9.9.2 but CM6 is a close second

    Not much you can do for games like AngryBirds, Hero hardware just isn't powerful enough. Overclocking will help though

    What are you looking for?:thinking: I suggested 3 stable roms that are worth flashing;)

    My suggestion is that you don't bother with any 2.1 ROMS, unless I'm missing something and they are better overclocked.

    If you're a game player and don't want/need a lot of features, stick with AOSP. I just installed it on my phone the other day and I couldn't be happier.

    Although, if you like a few features without scanning the Android market, then go with Cyanogen.

    There's quite a few roms out there, but in my personal opinion there's only a tiny bit out there worth your time. Hope this helps.

    So will putting your Sprint HTC Hero into Airplane Mode. Those advertisements are a killer. :D

    But, sadly, andygu3 is right. The Sprint HTC Hero hardware, even overclocked, will struggle a bit with games like Angry Birds. I wonder happened to the "Lite" version of Angry Birds we were supposed to get? Hmm. :thinking:

    go to xda and look for dearmasfamily and his 1.1 opengls tweak---for any rom, it will improve game performance greatly. for me, I'm loving the 1/23 GB 2.3 rom

    Yeah, I had read about that a few days ago. Apparently, that has been added to the Android 2.3 ROM for the Sprint HTC Hero as well.

    Have you done any benchmarks before and after making that tweak? I would love to see how much of an effect it has on the performance.

    I agree with this one. ;) I tried Liquid Sense, CM6, AOSP, and the unstable version of GB, I felt that AOSP was the best ROM for the Hero so far. GB will probably prove to be even better, but I won't flash that for a while. :D

    Flash a kernel like you would any rom. Some kernels will greatly improve performance and battery life;)

    I hadn't done benchmarks, but many have run neocore and have seen impressive improvements. For me, angry birds runs great---no sluggishness at all---and before the tweak I was experiencing slowdowns and the game was (at times) unplayable. fruit ninja is also running better.

    For the installation, just use root explorer and copy/paste it into /system/lib/egl

    Why wait on the GB ROM? It's pretty stable as of now and makes the Hero run fantastically. :D

    The Deca Uncapped 691 kernal is what I ran on my 2.1 ROM and it was a fine kernal. Made the phone less laggy all around. I didn't even bother with SetCPU or OC Widget. I just let the kernal handle itself.

    If it freezes up or Bootloops...you can't handle it.

    The only way you will know is your phone does not boot up, the 691 kernel is for phones that have trouble booting up the 768 kernel
