3.0.1 released! Now 100% sense free, and with working contact sync!
Enjoy my work? Then please donate to fund my development
NOTE: This is MUCH different than simply unchecking HTC Sense in the MoDaCo Custom Custom ROM! This is the full Android package- just like a magic or dream.
This is VERY likely the fastest ROM for Hero available!
Recently I have been working with Vanilla Android and have grown to adore it through AOSP releases. However, AOSP releases didn't have the speed nor the stability to meet my expectations- so I started working with a 2.73.405.66 ROM and removed the HTC bloatware. The result has been a VERY fast, stable ROM.
-Everything in the MoDaCo custom rom. After installation, everything is (even more with 3.0) shockingly stable.
-Unlike AOSP roms, all the hardware works properly and you get to experience vanilla Android.
What DOESN'T Work:
Bluetooth (on 3.0)
Trackball (on 3.0)
Use Toggle Headset App for switching to headset.
Parts of sense that haven't been removed:
As of release 3.0, all sense has been removed!
This is a very stable ROM. It runs lightning fast, and saves a lot of memory.

Download 2.1 (if you need bluetooth):
Can't connect to 3G on 2.1?
For some strange reason, in Android 1.5's settings provider, mobile network is disabled by default. To enable it, hold the power button and select "Enable Mobile Network". GPS is disabled by default too, this can be toggled in settings.
