Getting an Android device to work is no easy feat. There is a lot of work that goes way past rom cooking, particularly when dealing with ports. This is particularly true when it comes to the kernels. Most end users will likely see a rom that is presented with fixes and this can usually lead to the misconception that the fix was done in the rom as opposed to the kernel. After much work by several XDA members including Decad3nce, riemervdzee, and Elemag , XDA member s0be has decided to release his port of 2.6.35 out into the wild and it seems that the dev did a good job as all sensors, radios, etc are working right out of the box. A very good day for Hero users indeed!
Everything should be working fine right now, but please leave a. . . READ ON »

The AOSP ROM with Android 2.3.2 has received a new update with an updated camera. Previously, it wasn’t possible to use the camera in combination with Gingerbread, but now you can. XDA developer aosp also added some CyanogenMod 7 resources to it, which makes this build an overall outstanding job. Check it out!

XDA member dearmasfamily presents this working opengl es version 1.1 tested on Hero that will definitely optimize performance of your Android applications designed for it. OpenGL ES 1.1 is derived from desktop OpenGL 1.5 and emphasizes hardware acceleration of the API, but is fully backwards compatible with OpenGL ES 1.0. OpenGL ES 1.1 provides enhanced functionality, improved image quality and optimizations to increase performance while reducing memory bandwidth usage to save power.
The developer has tested on HTC Hero but should work on other similar resolution devices.
The application can be found on post number 26.

If you have a favourite theme and want to be able to apply it to the newest nightly CM6 ROM for your Hero, without having to go through porting it manually, you might want to take a look at One Click Theme Injector.
One Click Theme Injector is a tool developed by XDA forum member ASimmons, which takes your favourite theme and ‘injects’ it into your favourite ROM.
Simply grab your favourite theme, grab the newest nightly, place them in the one click folder and double click the script. The tool will prompt for the name of the theme and ROM and output a “themed – <nameofyourrom>.zip which can then be flashed to your system.
As the script can only inject what it can find, it won’t injec. . . READ ON »

It seems that ever since the introduction of mobile devices into this world, crowds and masses have enjoyed a wide variety of OS flavors, depending on their needs and lifestyle. However, due to the relatively high prices on these “toys” most people can only afford to have one or two, which limits the amount of playtime one gets with other available OS systems. Because of this, maybe a bit of boredom, and the eternal quest to get the most out of our investments, projects like this one are born. Starting a new discussion and resource thread, XDA member mrinehart93 has decided to bring forth a project to have webOS ported to the HTC Hero. This new Frankenstein would, when completed, allow people who are us. . . READ ON »

Perhaps you’ve heard of the HTC Gratia, Aria’s European brother. This mid-range Android device may not seem very remarkable, yet it offers something new. The combination of the HVGA screen, the Froyo OS, and HTC Sense makes it a unique phone. Still nothing really interesting at that point, but for HTC Hero users, this is great news. A ROM port of the Gratia to the Hero would offer the Froyo speed and Sense features, without any resolution problems – the Hero has an HVGA screen too.
Yesterday, Shen Ye, one of the developers of the Villain ROM team, tweeted that this ROM is coming within a month, meaning that Hero users can soon enjoy Froyo and Sense too:

Right, Hero users who want 2.2 Sense

In the blink of an eye, XDA members Decad3nce, beezy420, and nfinitefx45 were able to port Froyo 2.2 w/ Sense from the HTC Wildfire to the HTC Hero. This rom is still in Alpha stages but is pretty functional for a port. It was ported from the HTC Wildfire Froyo leak and is only 80% functional as of today. More updates should follow soon, some of the features you can expect in this release are:
- Froyo 2.2 W/ Latest Sense
- Higher Screen Res.
- Newer Webkit (3.1)
- New HTC Keyboard
And other bullet points from Decad3nce himself
- Lots of bugs
- Port from HTC Wildfire RUU
- Not worth making front page
It shouldn’t be used currently for day to day use, but If you’d like to take it for a test spin yourself check ou. . . READ ON »

The frame widget that is on available on stock Android is faulty at best and occupies quite a bit of space. XDA member PhilD41 has created an app for the hero that he is sharing for other Android users out there. The app is called FrameMe and basically is a smaller portrait widget, which only occupies 1×1 of your screen. On top of that, the app will resize the picture to full scree once you tap on it, allowing you to scroll through the different pictures in the directory where the selected picture is located.
The app is free, but there is a Donate version available if you want to get it from the alternate site. Make sure that you leave feedback for the dev if you can think of any improvements.
