Yep, I had checked that. Also, I had discovered Floyo0.8 ROM from erasmux, flykernel's developer. Will do some tests.

Have you had a chance to try Erasmux's ROM yet,
What's your opinion?

It seems to me more smooth, polished and responsive, particularly "default" installation just after flashing the ROM. That's my opinion. Sorry, had not did any overclocking or testing with neocore/linpack/etc.

In the name of science and as I'm bored and have the time I shall experiment with a few ROMS this morning, starting with FrodVillain 1.5 (With the Stock Theme!), before Floyo 0.8 ROM from erasmux and maybe Crono's ROM

I've been using Froyd Villian for, probably, about a week now. I think it's great, hardly had any problems and the battery is about as good as modaco r5

I have to agree, FroydVillian is running so smooth, trouble or lag free on my phone, so much so I have become a convert from FROYO_2.2_elelinux_v1.9 which unfortunately for me was not as smooth as I would have liked.

I know I'm a little late to this party, but.... Froydvillain 1.5 is just beyond awesome. It's perfectly usable as a daily rom, it's smooth, stable and incredibly fast. For those of you with battery issues - there is a huge thread over on the villainrom forums about this. It's a bug which is in all CM6 based roms, and apparently will be fixed in the next release. I reverted to using Villainrom12 as none of the froyo hero roms would give me more than 7-10 hours battery life. Once it's sorted I'm going straight back to froydvillain though. It's just too awesome.

EDIT - forgot to mention not everyone experiences the battery issues. Some people report phenomenal battery life from Froydvillain, others terrible battery life. Give it a whirl, nonetheless!

the latest good froyo roms are:

elelinux 2.0 or Special Edition (both include Flykernel10a with tweaks)
floyo 1.0 (Flykernel11 included; based on latest CM6 sources)

and if you want to do some customizing yourself try out the latest CM6 nightly build;
running it myself and its pretty awesome, only flaw might be batterylife...

for the CM6 nightly i recommend;

- flash Flykernel11
- flash a2sd file from Darktremor (move dalvik to sd too)


*i don't use bluetooth myself so i don't know if it works on the above roms

Just to add a reply for any late arrivals...

This is highly recommended as an every-day-ROM - http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=724637

Works for me without any issues...give it a shot :)

Cheers,
Smiffy.

Without any shadow of a doubt, and I have tried them all, Cronies Froyo 1.3.0 is the fastest, most stable, usable. ROM there is. In fvact its now so stable that there has been no need for a release or bugfix for over 2 weeks now.
If you haven't tried it then give it a go!

Heh, by that reckoning Froyd is a month and a half without a new release, must be even better! :)

Cronos is on my list for when Floyo 1.01 annoys me enough to start over again though, which is what I'm currently happy with.

Would be nice if any Devs get this working!
Biggest problem seems to be working WiFi.

Guys, elelinux was great, but Cronos Froyo 1.4.2 is beyond awesome : super smooth, battery life seems great so far... a real treat.
I'm impressed.

Is it really worthwhile to upgrade 2.1 to 2.2? I'm happy with with the current modaco rom and wonder what benefits there are? Aside from have the "latest and greatest".

I've tried several 2.2 roms ... Floyo, Cronos, Fusion!ROM, bFroyo63, FroydVillain, elelinux (actually this one)

For daily use, I like the Fusion ROM

(note that I'm not using bluetooth or camera functions)


Edit (10nov.): switched to Fusion Rom with the release of the 2.2.1 updt9. This release seems better than ever
take a look at androids Roms

Well, I feel 2.2 roms (especially Cronos) are running smoother & faster than 2.1 ones, but that's all.
If you're satisfied with the latest 2.1, well, keep it.
I wanted a system more reactive and Sense-free, that's why I upgraded.

Tried Cronos 1.4.2, but it seemed to dislike my phone, really laggy and slow compared to Elelinux and Floyo, in fact Froyd ran more smoothly than it and it's well outdated now

Yesterday I installed FroydVillain 1.5.

I am now very impressed!

Initially I was a little concerned, I had a few FCs and a couple of lockups.

Now, after reinstalling the apps that FC'd and updating all the other apps it's running as smooth as silk with no more FCs. I previously ran Modaco r5 and thought that was pretty good, but FroydVillain knocks it into a cocked hat.

Battery life seems excellent also; this morning at 11.45 I had to pull it off charge, it was at 71%. Now, 7 hours later it's at 50%, that's at least 20 %age points more than I would have expected. I'll run it from fully charged tomorrow and check for certain.

For now, it's looking really good.

I'm liking FroydVillain 1.5 too just missing the trackball light, gunna get it from a rom that its worked on and push it across see if it works.

Anyone know if Adobe Air will install on Hero running 2.2 or not?
