Guys. I think the server dishing out these ROMs is out of space. As you may know, Paul is stuck abroad due to the volcanic ash cloud so it may take a short while to fix.

EDIT - All fixed ;)


Ye gods, what if he's not back in time for the 2.1 release ;) <sees Gears' avatar...> What you waiting for? Go & get him! ;)

Hey, I'm new to this but got fed up waiting for HTC to ever update the Hero.

I tried last night to install the recovery image from command prompt and got "remote: not allow" error. I read through the thread and saw that using remoterec was another option, which I tried but after flashing the recovery image and rebooting into hboot, recovery is not an option. Booting up while holding home just hung the phone on the Hero screen.

Any help/solutions?

Cheers guys!

I installed this yesterday, had the 1.76.0007 SPL and the USB drivers were not cooperating, so it was hard work. I have to say though, it was worth it. My phone feels so much more responsive, and it seems more power efficient as far as disabling stuff like wifi when locking the screen (Awake time has dropped by almost 10% down from 20-25% with the original 2.73.4.405 ROM).

Just as I was looking through the apps menu, i noticed i have two HTCmail icons (both of them are the same app). Is there any way to fix that?

Dear all,

I'm new in Modaco forum, and I have some questions about his ROM.

Is French language available in this ROM 3.2 ?
I remember that in the previous versions, it was, but in the 3.2 version I can't find it !*


Could somebody help me please ?

Thx

Hi Paul

First off - great work, really happy with 3.2 on my Hero.

Appreciate you're not going to release 4.0 (Android 2.1 base) until the official HTC Hero 2.1 is knocking about.

Just a couple of questions on this...

I, like yourself am from the UK, as (from what I can gather) the European release is likely to be before the states, does it mean that you will be shipping your 4.0 when it hits us guys in the UK? Conversely, if 2.1 is out in the states first are you going to wait until 2.1 is on general release for us in the UK before releasing 4.0?

Sorry to seem inpatient - I'm definitely converted to MCR from here-on in, just don't want to wait *too* much longer for a 2.1 ROM!

What is the state of play with MCR 4.0? Is it ready to ship or will you need a few weeks (months?!) after 2.1 is official released to get it into a state for us all to use?

Thanks, in anticipation..

e: any chance of a alpha/beta? fellow canaries fan here *flutters eyelids*

Restarted the phone today, now the icons are back to normal.

No extra languages in 3.2 - you need to install 3.1 first then upgrade to 3.2.

Hi, could you give me the adb-commando for removing the wifi-status app?

And another thing: The Google Maps app crashes everytime I submit a search. I hoped the update from 3.1 to 3.2 would solve this, but it didn't. Is this a known bug and does perhaps even a workaround exist?

Keep up the good work!

the command is :-

'adb remount'

adb shell rm /system/app/*schwimmer*


and about the other problem as far I remember, I did a whole wipe to flash 3.2 as I wanted some more space on my phone and the Google Maps FC.

Because the latest Google Maps requires 1.6+ - just get the .apk from the custom ROM update.zip file and drop it into /system/app.

I also had this google maps problem after flashing the 3.2 rom and the simple way to get it working from there was

1) back up the map app using titanium backup (actually, I had already done this as part of a general backup)
2) uninstall it from inside titanium backup
3) reboot phone
4) restore it from the backup, choosing the option to restore app only and not the settings

The only slightly problematic moment was finding the backed up version to restore. Nothing seems to happen on the filtering screen in titanium, but when you press "back" a filtered list appears.

But this method doesn't require any command line fiddling nor any cables
