    And you wonder how an 800MHz processor can survive in a world where clock speeds are going to increase
    Not tooo worrried about that. The Desire HD uses the same as the Desire Z, just clocked at 1ghz. So hopefully XDA'll have it overclocked before long to 1ghz.

    It's newer tech and has a newer GPU tecch, so it should be on parr or slightly below the Galaxy S. But you're right, it's not really anything special at all.

    Sick of my iPhone though

    :hi:

    I upgraded my Hero to 2.2 with Launcherpro today, because Mikey recommended it :ahee: but there are some things that I miss:

    - Quickoffice. I was hoping to use it in the future. :emo:
    - The black bar at the top. I don't like the white one. :p: I found this, but I don't know if it's applicable because the build number of my phone is FRF91.
    - The font looks different. :hmmm:
    - The re-orientation is quite sensitive now :erm: Can I change that?
    - I've noticed that when I'm on TSR (:sigh:) in Dolphin, there's a delay between when I type something and when it shows up in the text box. :hmmmm2:
    - Which reminds me, I miss the 2.1 keyboard :o:
    - Flash videos don't display in the browser any more like they did before. I'm not sure if it's because there is no "HTC Flash Player" any more :dontknow: I've gone from Dolphin to the stock Browser and now videos show up, but if I try to watch it using HTC Flash Player (which I don't think is on my phone any more...) it crashes and I have to force close
    - I liked the old camera app, I find the new one a little daunting. Is there a different one you'd recommend, or could I get the old one back?
    - The Facebook and People thing seems very different and I'm confused atm. This is probably a non-point, so ignore this. :p:


    Oh, and could any of you recommend a nice notes app? And... a bookmarks widget. I liked the one I had before :p:

    Oh yes, and something for finding available Wi-fi networks!

    One more thing! Is it worth overclocking?


    Thank you in advance! :tong:

    Incidentally, I haven't tried the stock music program yet, but is it good? Could I use it to use my phone as my primary music player?

    You need to install Adobe Flash Player 10.1 from the market

    Also, Overclocking maybe not, Underclocking yes :P

    I could be wrong, but Flash 10.1 isn't on the market for the Hero on 2.2, or at least it wasn't when I was running it on my Hero.

    As for why you'd want to underclock, to save battery when the screen is off I've mine running at 200-odd Mhz when the screen is off.

    Think I'll just get the Desire HD. Yeah the 1GHZ is a 45nm so it should be less battery hungry. Can't wait to get me some launcher pro on this!

    Now time to blackmail virgin into giving me early upgrade.

    Could well work, but with the Hero's mediocre GPU not sure how well it'd run.

    Flash 10.1?
    Yeah. I tried a Flash apk I found on Androidapk.net, but it wouldn't install.

    Wait, does 2.2 already have Flash?

    Yeah it does, you can download it from the market. I had the apk working on my 2.1 hero but it rendered at about a frame every 10 seconds

    - The black bar at the top. I don't like the white one. :p: I found this, but I don't know if it's applicable because the build number of my phone is FRF91.

    There's a theme on the Cronos Forums which restores the black goodness.

    - The font looks different. :hmmm:


    They are, I think there are more fonts available on Cronos Forums too. The default one has been pretty popular though.

    - The re-orientation is quite sensitive now :erm: Can I change that?


    It'll sort itself out after a while.

    - I've noticed that when I'm on TSR (:sigh:) in Dolphin, there's a delay between when I type something and when it shows up in the text box. :hmmmm2:

    I've always had that on any Hero ROM, official or not. It's not so good at doing text input in web pages.


    - Which reminds me, I miss the 2.1 keyboard :o:


    http://androidcommunity.com/forums/f...ouch-3g-22181/

    I think that's the one you want.


    - I liked the old camera app, I find the new one a little daunting. Is there a different one you'd recommend, or could I get the old one back?

    Camera ZOOM FX is pretty popular.


    - The Facebook and People thing seems very different and I'm confused atm. This is probably a non-point, so ignore this. :p:


    That's mainly a sense thing IRC.

    Oh, and could any of you recommend a nice notes app? And... a bookmarks widget. I liked the one I had before :p:

    Just search for notes in the market and get something with 4.5/5 stars. On the boookmark widget - buy Launcher Pro Plus - that has a carbon copy of most Sense widgets.


    One more thing! Is it worth overclocking?


    Yup. Over Clock Widget works a treat. Most Heros can run up to 690Mhz, others higher, it's very trial and error. The real benefit though is from underclocking it when the screen is off. Set it to 245Mhz when screen = off and your battery will last ages on standby.


    Thank you in advance! :tong:
