    Hi guys and gals... i have been fiddling with my phone and some of the custom roms..

    However i want to have a look at the 3UK rom..

    I`ve found a download but rather than the 5mb vanillaEclair rom, its 85mb?

    the file is here..

    hxxp://hero-roms.blogspot.com/p/stock-roms-radios.html

    and doesnt look right!

    can somebody point me in the right direction to the propper 3UK rom?

    Thanks

    Daz

    Vanilla eclair wouldn't be 5mb. Roms are usually 80-100mb.

    And I don't see a 2.1 3UK rom on that page, only 1.5 ones.

    Why would you want to brand your phone with a 3uk Rom, that. Rom is fine it will un root your phone though

    The thing with Android is, it can be wgat you want it to be, all a branded ROM will give you is a load of 3 cr@p you dont need, use a stock 2.1 GSM rom and make it what you want, I dong see any wins from taking 3's branding and marketing tools

    Thanks for the advice....

    I`m not saying i want to keep it!!!

    just want to stick it on a see what 3 did with the handset!.

    so my question is... is the above file (update-hero-generic-2.73.771.73-rooted-signed) the file i can copy to the SD card and rename update??

    or do i need to find another roughly 5mb file like the other 2 in my pic?

    Thanks for any help and support..

    i tried to use the offical 3UK exe RUU updater, and it finds the phone fine, the when it boots into the bootloader and says witing... it just times out.

    update-hero-generic-2.73.771.73-rooted-signed.zip is the actual ROM.

    The other two files are not ROMs, they are kernels. I told you, ROMs are waaay bigger tham 5MB.

    You cant flash an official RUU, you will have to use a custokm, that 85mb file is fine, full ROMS range from 80 -120 mb ish, you dont need the kernal, just flash it like anyoner custom ROM via recovery meny
