    I've got an HTC Hero running

    Is it worth the time and effort to update the ROM to ?

    Actually it only takes about 10 minutes and makes the phone much quicker and smoother.

    Yes! Just completed Rom upgrade. It is indeed faster. Glad it I did. (though had to sort out HTC Sync with Windows 7 using Vista drivers which was a little daft. Come on HTC. Get your Windows 7 support up to scratch!).

    You might as well upgrade to keep current, been honest i havent noticed a huge increase in speed overall, i found the speed of current version fine, the significant difference i noticed was the speed increase in the stock message app when you try navigating to a long thread, previous version made me change to handcent beacause stock was so slow but useable now so will stick with stock.

    I am waiting to see if it also cured the vanishing text message problem.
