Loading a Cyanogen FROYO Rom on my Sprint Hero

Feeling a tad nervous, hope it works well….

UPDATE: I like what FROYO has to offer, but I am missing my HTC Sense UI. I also am not too sure about the battery life. I’ve been playing with the phone a lot, so that has a ton to do with it I’m sure. Also not liking that I have to use Yahoo’s stupid Android app, and can’t get my Yahoo mail to just work in the mail app like I was able to do with all pre-2.2 builds. Going to give it a few more days and see what happens.

    Let me know of what rom works best for you Im currently running fresh 2.3.3 but it has random reboots and im ready for a change. I dont really go for roms with crazy themes, just fast and simple, good battery life,.

      I had been using ROMs from Damage Control, which I really liked, stable, fast, worked with Sense. But Damage is no longer developing for the Hero since the EVO was released. I decided to give this FROYO ROM a try, and I like what I see so far other than having to figure out a way to get all my apps back, and the caveat that you need to load a separate zip file for any of the Google apps. I will report more as I go.

    I went to Froyo with cyanogen 6.1 and I generally love it, except for those random reboots. They happen a lot when the phone is sitting for an hour or more idle. On many mornings at about 6:30am or so it will go thru 2 to 3 of them and wake me up. A buzz then HTC green letters on a white background followed by the Cyanogen skate-boarder dude. Right now, as I write this the phone is sitting next to me going through it’s 3rd reboot since I set it down about 15 minutes ago. Imagine that sitting idle and going for a reboot. Is it a conspiracy by HTC or Sprint to find these phones and reboot them?
