    I want to run a 2.1 ROM (because I use Google Navigation). However reliability is my number 1 criteria.

    I tried Sense2.1 (v2) and had a pretty miserable experience, I am now using Villian 5.3 and reasonably happy. IS this this the best bet for RELIABLE operation on HTC Hero?

    5.5 flashed over 5.3 was a big improvement in speed and stability for me. Looks a bit better too.

    I actually found 5.5 worse than 5.3, not sure why. I would reccomend SlideVillain as the best 2.1, but it still has bugs. I think the only bug free 2.1s at the moment are vanilla ones (no HTC-Sense).

    I find 5.5 better than 5.3, its down to personal experience, depends on how you use your device, try a few is the best advice

    I went from 5.22 to 5.5.
    5.5 is really a great rom but I find my mobile internet is slow or doesn't work quite often. Only problem I have with it really
