This looks like 1.5, the version number of the mod leads one to assume its android 2x based.

Not really... the date - 26/Jan leads one to believe that it's not based on the - as of yet unreleased - official 2.1 Sprint ROM.

2.2 leads one to believe that it's the next incarnation of MoDaCo's ROM after 2.1 (and that being the successor to 2.0)

Why is the download link for the ROM not working? It is redirecting me to the homepage.
Help!

Paul,

I know you're busy.... but any chance we can get a custom ROM built on the 2.1 test release that Sprint sent out?

Hello, I love the Modaco ROM's any thoughts on the new android 2.1 release? I tried a few xda.developers, but they all had the same flaw. The front button back-lights never turn off. Once I go back to a 2.0.x version of android the problem is solved. Anyway, I thought that you should keep that in mind when you build your nest version of the ROM.

So the Sprint release is out. Are we going to see a release of a MoDaCo or is this forum dead? We haven't seen any activity since January, and there has been a LOT of other work done with the CDMA Hero. Kinda sad. I really liked this ROM, but it's been so far behind that I've been looking for a replacement.

Please Paul, cook up a kitchen with 2.1 since it's finally out! We've been waiting patiently for a LONG time!

Paul,

While I agree with the sentiments that woofers1803 states here about having an updated kitchen... I do realize two things.
1) The official upgrade was just released today... so... it takes time for you to do your magic - please take your time and do it right.
2) You have many other things going on besides taking care of the Sprint Hero users... especially on the day of the release of the software

I would like to thank you very much for everything you have done... especially since you put out the very first Hero CDMA ROM just days after the Hero was rooted. Please don't think that all us Sprint Hero users are rude enough to think that you should drop all the things in your life to put together a custom ROM for us. I never used the other ROMs out there and stuck with yours because it is really the only one out there that never had to be updated in the past 4 months (i.e. bug free).

Again, thanks for everything you do... and if/when you get a chance to put the new release in the kitchen, just know that your efforts are greatly appreciated.

I am running a custom ROM that I got from this site for my CDMA Hero. I plan to get the EVO on June 4th and give my Hero to my wife. I dont really want to stay on top of updates and such and so I am wondering if I could install the regular 2.1 update on my phone and be fine or will it be a problem if I am currently operating a rooted phone? Would it just install a new ROM and be problem free or do I have a good chance of bricking my phone?

Thanks

Doug

I would suggest just running the RUU from Sprint to get 2.1 installed. This will "unroot" your phone and clean off all your apps and settings.

***** IMPORTANT *******
As of yet, there is no way to root the 2.1 release from Sprint. So if you RUU to the official release, you will not have root and you will not be able to root your phone until an exploit is found. If that's a concern to you, then RUU to the test version.

Do not put the Sprint Release RUU on your phone or you cannot root it. If you want to use a Sprint ROM then use the test RUU... it's basically the same but without su.

I actually tore apart the two ROMs and made my own update.zip so I kept my recovery image.

for pete's sake.... The EVO is now out and several OTHER 2.1 ROMS for Hero CDMA but the Modaco ROM isn't up to date yet.

I REALLY REALLY want to stay with Modaco because I have WAY to much data to wipe my phone.

When will there be a 2.1 ROM for Hero CDMA?

Also does anyone know if there is a ROM I can load on my phone WITHOUT wiping it (I currently have the latest Modaco ROM for Hero CDMA)?

I put the Fresh ROM on my phone. It did require a wipe, but using Titanium, I got almost all my settings and programs transfered over without a problem... if you donate (I think it's like 3 bucks) then you get the one touch backup and restore from Titanium which is really helpful.

Hi,
I don't know if HTC [Sprint] Hero development is going to halt now that the EVO is out but one of the things I'm still trying to determine is when we talk about the latest 2.1 release for Sprint Hero, is that the same kernel as is in the kitchen here when baking? When you do "About phone" there is Firmware [2.1-update 1], Kernel Version [2.6.29_bc0d2cff htc-kernel@and18-2#1, as well as build #, software #. I just want to get it straight in my noob head if the kernel here is older that what is on the 2.1 release. Is there an explanation on the forums how firmware version differs from build and software? I know that the kernel is the "core" and presumably the firmware version is the latest GUI or would that be latest OS? All helped deeply appreciated.

thanks!

I guess I'll post this here... I'm not getting any action in my thread.

I have wiped everything I can wipe, but I'm getting this error when I try to install my freshly kitchen-built rom...

"Install from sdcard...
finding update package...
verifiying update package...
E: Wrong digest:
system/build.prop.nopassword
E: verification failed

Installation aborted"
