    If you like Froyo's ROMs, here for you a Froyo+Sense really fast, stable and with a great look! I'm testing it personally in theese days and I love it!
    Enjoy it!

    From: XDA-Developers

    This is a port of the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide Froyo Sense to the Hero GSM. If you don't have a Hero GSM, look elsewhere.

    After the dust settled with all the excitement of the new Sense Gingerbread, I revisited this port, and IMHO this one has real potential. It seems fast and stable and I am hoping to get everything working in the near future, well at least everything except the camera. Additionally, I am in parallel working on a method to add proper RTL support (Hebrew, Arabic) to closed source ROMs, and this ROM will incorporate this as well.

    This ROM is now a collaboration between me and ArnoSlag.

    For now, here is an update with what we got so far:
    HeroLatte-0.5.zip (Android RTK)
    HeroLatte-0.5.zip (Wupper)
    HeroLatte-0.5.zip (Multiupload)

    This is still an experimental version, mostly to get feedback from those bold enough to try it. I will be away for a few days, so most likely there won't be another update for at least a week. But, especially if there is interest in this, I will continue to work on this.

    Instructions:
    - Full wipe and flash from recovery
    - First load will take a while

    Known bugs and limitations:
    - This is a port of a T-Mobile ROM (USA) so the Sense UI does not have the translations for European languages.
    - Camera, not sure if its possible to have a working hero camera on Sense 2.2 ROMs
    - Wifi hotspot does not work (I believe we don't have kernel support for this)
    - Trackball notification does not work (WIP)
    - Gyros seem to work (i.e. the included Teeter game), yet still if I install Abduction no gyros (also WIP)
    - Menu key unlocks lock screen?!
    - When the screen dims just before it times out, touching the screen will prevent the timeout but when using auto-brightness will result in very low brightness either until the screen is turned off and on or until there is a change in ambient light (causing a recalculation of the auto-brightness). Not much I can do about this HTC bug as they didn't give me the sources ;(.
    - Arabic reshaping is not supported in the web browser (and other "small" Arabic problem support problem like the crazy cursor movement, which at least currently also exist in CM7).
    - Anything else?
