    Keep in mind you need "root" in order to load any custom roms listed below. This is not the thread to ask how to root or get help with the rooting process. With all of that in mind here is the unofficial list in order of project start date thanks to BlueScreenofLife:

    1/28/2010**UPDATE** The nice folks at XDA have a WIKI page with all ROMs, Tools, Root Utilities and more here: http://wiki.xda-developers.com/index.php?pagename=CDMA%20Hero%20ROMs

    Please feel free to discuss.

    I tried the Eclair beta version and my track ball when I pushed it did not work and I don't think it uses apps2sd. I was reinstalling all my apps and it said I needed to free up some space to install this app. Or do you know of it being better now?

    Add me to the list of happy Fresh 1.1 ROM users. I switched last week and am glad I did. I'm loving this thing! Feels like I got a new and even better phone!

    I'm on Fresh 1.0 still. I love it and want to move to 1.1, but I'm hoping he'll release a de-fresh for it. I don't like the look of the new taskbar icons and lock screen.

    Use the pre-kitchen to get rid of that taskbar and lockscreen, that's what I did

    yeah I wasn't feeling the taskbar either. I changed it with the kitchen and now it is back to stock.

    I have noticed that the "all programs" button at the bottom will disappear (or at least the icon on it will) after exiting an app. Just click on it and it reappears, and doesn't affect operation in any way. More of an annoyance than anything.

    Fresh 1.1 is the best so far for Hero.

    The lock screen and theme stuff is also top notch and will be more involved in upcoming releases. I encourage you to donate to noJ on their site Geek For Me – Android CDMA Sprint Hero for some custom lock screen work. It is really well done and it gets better with each custom set up he does.

    THIS is a forum. Without a discussion it is not. If you want the site traffic to go elsewhere as you suggest that is good for not-forums.

    Rooted my phone last night and decided to start with Fresh 1.1. Damn it's fast. Much quicker and smoother than before. Still has the occasional hiccup, but it's less common and usually only a few seconds rather than the 10 or so that it used to be.

    I think I'll give Modaco and see how they compare later in the week. Honestly though, I have no idea what the difference is between Fresh and Modaco.

    The first post in the thread satisfies your desire for the thread. Who cares if people want to talk about the roms after wards? I re-made and deleted your thread on this because the first post was you asking for the information and to sticky it. If we'd left that one there it would have been a lot harder to decipher the information 2-3 posts down. I will keep the first post up to date whenever a new rom is made available.

    The OP is updated with all of the ROMs. If you want a list there it is. What good is a post, sticky or not, if no discussion is allowed? It seems to me that people might find it easier to decide on a ROM if there is an updated list (the first post) and discussion of the ROMs in the posts below. I don't see what the complaint is here. There is exactly what you want in the first post in this thread and it's updated regularly by nick325i so why does it matter what happens in the posts below?

    I would flash Modaco new rom that came out today and just remove the apps you want. Amazon mp3 is in there. Fresh is nice but he removes all the apps and i like options so i have Modaco with the espresso green theme.

    and fresh has a kitchen to where you can add or remove any app you want ;)

    I know but i just prefer Modaco rom over Fresh. Also Modaco has a kitchen coming out ;) yippee. Also Fresh was kinda rude to Modaco about his Beta so i lost respect for him and without Modaco , the fresh rom from flipper would not exist :p.
