    For those of you that have had issues with the Sprint official 2.1 Release and have had issues, and decided now to Root your 2.1, please post here and tell us if it is better, if your issues have been resolve on the Rooting, and what ever else you like about the Rooting other than the bloatware Proggies being removed, I am more concerns with Lag on calls, phone rebooting on Navigation programs etc...

    The official 2.1 basically helped me finalize my decision to root where I was on the fence about it before. I'll have some time either tonight or tomorrow morning to root--I'll let everyone know afterwards how it goes. I've had issues with lag on calls/dialer, random rebooting, the mobile network cutting out for no reason at all...
    Any tips on what ROM to switch to?

    Not able to root here. I get to step 3 and

    C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>adb devices
    List of devices attached
    my serial # device

    C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>adb push unrevoked /sdcard
    cannot stat 'unrevoked': No such file or directory

    C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>adb push recovery.img /sdcard
    cannot stat 'recovery.img': No such file or directory

    C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>adb push boot-patched.zip /sdcard
    cannot stat 'boot-patched.zip': No such file or directory

    Depends on what you want. Stock feel roms are fresh and damagecontrol. Most people who use these are happy with them. Here is a link for a sticky with a ton of roms to check out with info about them.


    I prefer Fresh, because they are very complete and Flipz updates them and offers many fixes for issues that may arise.;)

    Make sure you extracted all the files to the tools folder. Otherwise it will not find the files...

    I rooted sucessfully. I think it is easier now then with 1.5...

    Dude! Did you notice that 2.1 was rooted yesterday? Its stickied!

    If you are still in 1.5 you need to use the old rooting method. I suggest you go look for Fresh Pre-Kitchen (or Kitchen) in xda-developers forums. But I think its better to just install the update from Sprint/HTC and then root using the new method...

    Sorry for the confusion. I was on the official 2.1 and was referring to 2.27.651.5 vs 2.27.651.6. I was a moron, I got it now!

    Worked flawlessly! I had one small issue with the shell closing and just did a "adb shell" again and continued with the procedure. Loaded up "WIFI Tether For Rooted Users" to test things out. Tried the one from the market first and it didn't work. Did some searching and reading and found that this is the correct onr for the rooted hero...


    This is sweet!

    Rooted with Fresh 2.1.2. So much better than RUU 2.1. Had so many problems, especially with lag when trying to call out from phone history. Fresh 2.1.2 resolves that, and so much more.

    I kept the RUU 2.1 but I cleaned off all the sprint bloatware and got the tether app, and now I'm happier then ever with my hero.

    With 2.1, I couldn't stream bluetooth to my stereo in my car. As I am rooting RIGHT NOW, I cannot say if it fixed it. Stay tuned my friends....

    i rooted last night and posted results in the sticky.
    everything is running well. i deleted a whole bunch of useless apps and such. the boot time is halved and the keyboard in landscape is only slightly less laggy.
    edit: my dialer lag is 99.999999999% gone. i press numbers/call and it responds immediately.

    Well i rooted then i started having trouble with the mobile internet staying connected. I just installed Fresh 2.1.2 (just as easy thanks to youtube and geeks) so far its staying connected. The Dialer lag is sooo minimal now

    Has anyone used the Evo/hero unrovoked 1 click app you download to the phone to root yet? Is it the same thing, but just and app that you run off the phone instead?

    I'm new to androids and this is my first android phone and first time rooting and it went perfectly and was VERY easy.

    I had the same problem...

    My first problem, I did not yet update to sprint/htc's released 2.1 O/S.

    I thought that would fix it but it didn't.

    I had to change from the pull down from charge only to disk drive.

    Then I had to manually copy the files to the scandisc.

    Then start over.

    Hope that helps you out.

    I'm stuck on the last step, it says no file/folders found with regards to ota.zip

    That live wallpaper came with Fresh2.0d I think as one of the stock live wallpapers. It's a bit laggy on 2.0d. If you go with Fresh 2.1.2, there is a whole bunch of live wallpapers in the market. I recently have the retro live wallpaper which plays pacman.
