    It's a custom ROM that removes some of the Sprint crap that comes installed on the phone.

    Removes all sprint bloatware.
    Optimized .apk files for faster loading of all programs. (including rosie/sense)
    Different animation for screen changing.
    Clear lock screen
    Custom status bar icons
    Sweet linux emulated bootscreen
    Installs apps Wi-fi tether and spare parts

    Overall the phone is faster and more pleasureable.

    I would like to Root my phone, but to be honest I am a bit intimidated. I also only have Macs in my house...

    I have been running fresh 1.0 for a day now and I am sold on it. Everything seems to run so much better. I'm not really understanding the clear lock screen though as I still have a background.

    What is considered bloatware? I may be interested in doing this as well...

    How is that possible when below this is what it says...

    (4. Plug the phone into the compuer via USB, then pull down the notification bar and click on the SD card notification. Then click mount.)

    Is the phone loaded with the Fresh ROM supposed to take that long to startup each time you power it off/on? It seems like it's nearly doubled in time to turn back on...

    The first time it boots up it takes longer.

    From there it takes a few seconds less than stock i believe. I don't mind because atleast i see it doing something instead of just an HTC logo.

    But even the next 4 or 5 times I've rebooted it it seems to take longer to start up. Not really a problem, just an annoyance I guess
