    Hopefully going to flash cronos in the next week or so
    I flashed CF 1.1.1 today. It's good so far. It's working with Over Clock Widget better than any other ROM I've used before. 264Mhz screen off / 690 On and very happy.

    Otherwise performance is pretty good. Definitely better sound quality than the older versions.

    I'm liking it so far.

    Just flashed it but I can't download any apps from the market. Is there something that I should do to be able to?

    Edit sorted it now, date was 30 yrs out so couldn't d/l stuff. What are you using to set the CPU and is the OC kernel included in 1.1.1

    I use Over Clock Widget to control CPU speed. Kernel supports OCing by default.

    I use setcpu. Has profiles so under certain battery percentage you can keep it underclocked, or with screen off, keep it at minimum clock etc. Can also change the cpu governor between ones supported by the kernel

    However you may need to load a cutom profile to make it work with the Hero, I'll upload it later as I can't find the specific thread.

    Hey guys i'm thinking of getting a moterola milestone but i'm just wondering, is 250mb internet enough for an android phone? I would only be using the internet occasionally for facebook, google maps and other webpages, no music downloading or youtube. The reason i ask is i've found the phone for free on orange with £15, 24 months, unlimited texts, 50 minutes and 250mb data, does that seem ok?

    Depends on how often you use it... But imo I think it is enough. However if I didn't have wifi then I would have gone over a long time ago.

    Is the phone you are getting wifi enabled?

    Good phone that Droid. Will struggle with all the very new things coming out on Android in the next 24 months.

    Still, it runs Froyo with Full Flash support, has decent keyboard and screen resolution too.

    If you root it, you could over clock it.

    Good phone, good price, you can get away with 250mb, just limit yourself.

    And yes, it has Wifi.

    I would advise against getting a phone that is a year old. While it is a good phone it has been a long year in terms of phone specs and Adobe has just updated the minimum specs for flash so it can't run flash and you wonder whether it will be able to run gingerbread.

    But kudos to Moto for keeping it updated, wish the same could be said for HTC

    Yeah, that's one of my main concerns about going with the motorola, the fact that it's actually getting pretty old now. I just dont know what i'd go for instead of it, as it seems like the best android phone i can get for that price.

    I'm toying with the idea of getting the wildfire but i've read that it's quite a lot slower than the other HTC phones and the touch screen isnt as good.

    That said, my main priorities are: A useable qwerty keyboard (touchscreen or otherwise) and a decent browser. Being able to run good games and apps would be nice too but realisticly they're probably less important as i'd probably get bored of that after a couple of weeks :rolleyes:

    Another phone i was considering was the SE x10 mini pro, but the small screen and dated android version puts me off.

    Any other suggestions i could consider? I want to be spending £15 a month with 500+ texts, a few minutes and internet without having to spend heaps on the handset. (tight budget i know, but i could do with saving as much money as possible for food etc at uni lol, i just really hate my LG viewty)

    To be fair to HTC, The Droid runs Stock Android and most HTC phones run Sense. The Motorola Dext running MotoBlur is STILL on Android 1.5

    Gingerbread will fix this problem as it separates the Underlying OS and the Custom Skin/UI which means the OS can be updated on every android phone at the same time using the same update.

    . I'm so stuck. Same situation as ages ago, sick of my iPhone but I never got around to getting a replacement.

    Seriously considering the new G2 when it comes out over here, or the Galaxy S. I like the idea of a hardware keyboard, but after using my iPhone for like 31months I'm not bad at softkeys.

    I just really, REALLY, like the screen on the Galaxy S. Touchwiz ruins it for me though. 6 days before HTCs announcement and I can make my decision.

    You can disable touchwiz can't you?
    Otherwise you can root the Galaxy S easily.

    ^I was wondering can you run ADW launcher over vanilla Android on the Galaxy S? If so then it doesn't matter that it's a Sammy, even if the case is a little plasticky. Is the S running 2.1 or 2.2?

    Yes you can.

    2.1, for now.
