    I don't know if anyone else is using It but I just got Zenexp from xda. And I love It it is everything I always wanted a Rom to be fast, stable, and LANDSCAPE SENSE! My only gripe is the "glass" icons way to iphoneish for me but. Ill live with it for all its. Wins

    Same here - the few issues it has are either minor or not a problem for me, and it's as fast and smooth as anything I've used. The Sense apps have a few new features as well, so it seems the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide folks are going to get a very good experience out of the box! What I don't understand is why the Hero's 2.1 ROM does not include all that's already in the MT3G Slide, as those apps obviously work very well on the Hero hardware ... oh well, I look forward to enhancements to Zen's ROM, and new ROMs based on the MT3G Slide, now that folks know just how good the base ROM and Sense apps are!

    I had problems receiving emails on it. Other than that it was great.

    I have been playing with this ROM for a while, (thanks for recommending it, Kelmar!) and it is realy very smooth and fast. I just found a fix for the one issue I had with it. I didn't like the way the icons/shortcuts had a box around them, iPhone style. Thanks to .mak at xda, here is the fix for that:

    Download RemoveIconBG_Hero_mak_UNZIPMEFIRST.zip
    Extract the contents to your desktop (you'll find update_signed.zip in the folder you extract)
    Place update_signed.zip on your sdcard
    Reboot into Recovery
    Make a nandroid backup
    Flash update_signed.zip
    Reboot and enjoy!

    EDIT: One GREAT feature available for the ROM is a fix for the double menu press waking up and/or unlocking the phone. NO MORE pocket dials! Also, I have no issues with BT or email with this ROM. It has an easy updater that helps with updates, themes, and extras!

    The latest Toast was flaking out on me, so because of these recommendations, I checked out Zen. It's running great so far except for my Pop mail account, which won't recognize outgoing mail settings.

    I just wanted to say that I've tried Fresh 2.0d, Fresh 2.1.2 and Damage Control 2.08 and this Zen ROM runs more efficiently than any of them. Less hassles, great features, good battery life and everything works correctly as far as I can tell. I highly recommend it.

    Lol!

    There are a few different tips and tricks you can do along the way to get things the way you like (like w/o the iphonish app background that JB listed above).

    Let us know if you have any problems that we can assist you with. Worse case scenario, nandroid is only a few clicks away! :)

    Quick question before you go, Do I DL the .2 version of the rom, The Toasted one?

    I'll be around, but if you're rooted, it's a simple process. Wipe factory, dalvik and if you're using a2sd, wipe the extra partition. Flash Zen and you're in business.

    Sure enough. Another thing that makes me happy is knowing that Zenulator is going to working on porting Froyo to the Hero as soon as possible.

    Use the link that Kelmar posted. Zen hasn't updated his links in a while...

    Thanks, that was the one I was asking about from xda. I have to DL it after 2 am because of the stupid satellite, I just tried, and don't have enough bandwidth left tonight until the "FREE" time. I will be flashing tomorrow evening.....
