    I'm ready to go for fresh 1.1 but before I do I have a question . When Android 2.1 comes out for the hero will I be able to upgrade to it?

    you would have to run the stock RUU to get the update over the air or how ever they will put it out ............BUT if you are willing to wait a few hours after the release they will be a 2.1 fresh rom made and put out for everyone

    you might have to revert to stock before you upgrade. Otherwise, I'm sure there'll be plenty of 2.1 ROMs out within a day or two after 2.1 comes out.

    I'll probably go back to stock ROM when 2.1 comes out ..

    and when Fresh ROM comes out with a new rom for the 2.1 ...It's most likely I will be switching to a Fresh ROM again..

    they might just have the root access patched with the udpate so you would loose root access if done that way ;)

    True....we'll see though...I'll wait a few days for new roms to pop up and I'm going to read on the new update as well to see how it's running ...

    yeah, I think it's probably going to be a good idea to wait a couple of days to update when it does come out, that way if there's any issues, hopefully they'll be fixed by a ROM right away.

    Yeah I personally don't foresee any permanent block on the ability to root. Someone will always find a way.

    I will go back to stock at least at first. That's the exciting part, something new to play with. Then as the Roms mature over a few days I will get back to rooting and flashing. Who knows, I think my plans will fall subject to emotions when the update ACTUALLY gets released.

    Eris owners: I'm sure you'll have root access at some time!

    Satisfied?:p

    that's a good question. But I think when you do the RUU it's going to reset all the special permissions, I think even if your apps are on your SD they will be useless.

    There is a thread on XDA about reversing apps2sd, I might check that first, but it might be a waste if the RUU is going to erase your data.

    Anyway, I'm obviously not real sure so wait for a bit more advice.
