Has anyone else been having issues with getting the Superuser Permissions application to work? I keep getting a black screen and it never goes anywhere even when I let it sit for half an hour.

What about a way to remove those pesky Sprint applications that I'll never use? Any way to get rid of them? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

For the person/people with the Google Maps issues, if you wipe and re-flash the ROM, it seems to have fixed the issue for me. I couldn't find Google Maps on the Market, so I tried that as a last ditch last night and it worked.

I flashed this ROM on my Sprint Hero yesterday and so far so good! Loving the changes from the stock one and the apps2sd! So much better and faster! Hoping it will fix the memory leak that the stock ROM had. So far it's doing great, but only time will tell!

Here's the guide I used to get rid of it.

Thanks for the hard work on getting this ROM out.

After I installed it, I keep getting this wierd dimming issue. Has anyone else seen that and know how to resolve it?

I will be using the phone like normal and then suddenly it dims like it's been idle for too long. I then only thing I can do to restore it to full brightness is to hit the red end button and then hit it again and unlock the screen.

It's getting quite annoying and it did not start until after I applied the custom ROM.

I'm very happy with the upgrade form the original rom, feels faster anfd consumes less battery.

But I have one issue. The "My Contacts" group is not in it and therfore Touchdown cannot copy the contacts in a proper way. Is it possible to add it?

I had that happen too. I had to do a total wipe and reinstall the ROM to fix a Google Maps issue, and it seemed to fix that issue too. Might have been a coincidence, but it hasn't done it again since I did that. Might give it a shot if you're not too adverse to having to reset your settings and all. Worth giving a shot unless someone else has any better ideas!

Please excuse my ignorance here, as I'm still trying to understand all of this at least on a level that's greater than where I'm at now.

I'm already rooted, and already have a few apps removed and am running the Fresh ROM.

I'm looking for a way to run at least 1.6 on my Sprint Hero, not just 1.5. (currently states that I'm running 1.56)

I've paid for apps that have since been upgraded, but the upgraded versions only run on 1.6+.

Will the MoDaCo ROM essentially flash my Hero with 1.6+ (2.0 even?)

Or, how would I need to go about doing this? I seem to be having trouble finding threads related to this. Or, it's possible that it's just not possible right now...lol

Hi all, quick question, as this rom looks to be the best out there.

I have an htc sprint hero in the US ( CDMA). I have the recovery152.img working and I currently have a custom installed rom. When I download the latest modaco I was able to select it from the recovery menu and then get an error in line 2 == "hero" and it doesnt install.

I had to do a lot of bouncing around to get my hero rooted and the recovery images on there and am going to try to compile a simple walk through for sprint cdma phones if people are interested.

How unusual, I just tested and all the commands you mentioned there worked for me (running 1.1 of MoDaCo's ROM on my sprint hero).

Over at XDA, I noticed Apps2SD on this ROM is...not consistent. It appears to be working for some and not others. I haven't decided to take the plunge yet since I'm not terribly low on space. :)



I have never posted to a forum before so I'm sorry if I did this wrong and I apologize in advance for being such a...I think noob is the term? ;) I got the Sprint Hero for my son and had to go back and get one for myself! So I read tons of information over a few days and finally got the guts to root it and install this ROM. The thing is, I don't know if the apps2sd it working. My question is, do I have to actually go in and do something with the partitions after I install the ROM or is it all just automatic? I checked my memory before and after deleting an app and the only memory that decreased was the phone memory = SD card stayed the same. So my assumption is that the apps are still being saved to phone. I did a wipe so these are new installs - tried w/out wipe and got tons of force closes so just went back and wiped it.

Thanks!!

Is there a way to reset the SuperUser permissions? Programs that use root access like "WiFi tether" and "quick boot" are getting frozen on the SU Request screen. I fixed the problem by wiping all data and reinstalling the update.zip, but is there an esiaer way to fix the bug? Thanks

Great, thanks David.

As soon as I get feedback that this initial Beta 1 release is running OK, i'll crank up the optimisations etc.! Harder without a real device, so I have to work gradually! :)
