    So I'm rooting my phone for the first time tonight, and I have been researching which ROM I want to install.

    Which ROM is the best all around?
    Meaning stability, performance and appeal

    For a first ROM, stick to something "stock" such as Fresh or ZenHeroFX

    You probably won't be able to find it but I'm running fresh's 2.0d which is the most stable and fast ROM I've ever used, Fresh currently has his 2.3.3 ROM out but after test driving it for over a week it was slightly slower than 2.0d to me, YouTube didn't work NEARLY as good, and it had constant reboots for me. Still a decent ROM nonetheless and it had tons of goodies like friendsteam and Fresh Boot Loader (I think it was called that).

    I'm still running NfiniteFX's deodexed stock 2.1 with the Darchstar kernel. It just works.

    Just rooted my Hero this past week and love it. I've tried Fresh's 2.3.3 and ZenEXP. Both are good roms with different looks.

    +1 on Nfinite's stock rom, though I am highly anticipating the odex version of ZenheroFX.

    I've been running Cyanogenmod's Froyo ROM for the past week or so, and it's made my Hero the phone it should have been from the beginning. It's fast, stable, and with the exception of the camera works flawlessly. I tried to go with Fresh's 2.3.3, but haven't been able to get it to take. Don't know why, but the regular wipe/flash method doesn't do it for my phone. Froyo is definitely worth trying out.

    I gotta agree. After trying all of the Fresh ROMs 2.0d seemed to work the best for me and has become my everyday ROM for the past 2 months or so.

    Have been running cSrOm 2.1.2 for a while, love it as an everyday rom now that I can flash a new theme over top of it! Some bugs in 2.1.5, random reboots, no big deal though. Just flashed CM6 nightly 8-10-10, and everything works, INCLUDING the camera;).

    I totally agree. I switched from Fresh to CyMod a few weeks ago and I love it--with the exception of the camera not working. That reminds me, anyone know of a fix for the camera issue on CyMod?
