Thanks for your work!

What is the difference between this ROM and the 2.1 ROM by Paul?! Both are based on official release.. so should be the same, except Paul even tweaked the ROM..

Thanks!!

Hmmm, any chance you could upload it somewhere else too.. It cancelled itself after 89MB and now fails to start downloading.

Thanks in advance.

I have been watching this over at XDA and there is a problem with a script in the ROM. I believe it is being fixed now and a new updated upload link will be coming.

I think he removed the file from the host instead of trying to remove the link on all the forums.

This is the official 2.1 whereas Paul's version is based on the leaked Taiwan ROM, containing bugs and various inconsistencies.

Thanks for your work!

Dude the Taiwan based ROM is official HTC ROM, That's no leaked or unstable ROM, That's official ROM released in Taiwan.

Wow... That's frightening considering the errors and annoyances we've managed to gather in the thread http://android.modaco.com/content/htc-hero...en-android-2-1/

Actually, that's Paul's MCR version of the Taiwan ROM which includes a lot of changes. If you want the more stable version, but rooted too, use this one Paul posted initially. I'm using it and it's pretty stable.

I don't have a problem with stability, but pathetic mistakes in the code and design.

Examples:

1) Display pictures of contacts are low-res if not cropped (selecting the entire picture for a contact generates a low-res thumb)

2) Dialer shows SIM-entires (yuk!) even if unchecked under Settings

3) Wifi would never find my hidden network (although out of a sudden two days ago it connects every time -- remote update anyone?)

4) Some button-labels are named incorrectly (I'm using English)

5) Bundled SMS-program does not always scroll down to bottom history, especially during reply

6) Boot-animation is still on ~500Kb (which is there by stupid design, I use one on ~800b)

This is one major SNAP if the European 2.1 isn't better.

PS: Yes, I did a full wipe and I'm not running apps on SD-card.

PS2:

European release: 3.32.405.1

Taiwan release: 3.31.751.1

Dude what I'm trying to tell you is that the Taiwan based ROM was official and the errors you are telling us would probably be this in this ROM as well, If not all but some of them would be there.

Most of the issues you listed (1,2,5,6) exist in other HTC Android phones, so it's not a problem with the ROM itself.

Issue 4: Button labels are a translation problem I guess.

I never experienced #1-5 on HTC Hero w/ Android 1.5.
