    It's not quoting for some reason, but I'm used to 'vanilla' Froyo now tbh, I don't know if I'll ever go back to Sense :ahee:
    Vanilla is fine. Just needs a black bar (cominging Gingerbread) and a better dialer (Vanilla is poor compared to HTC's).

    And it is quoting me.

    Cronos? I must be an complete noob because I have no idea what you guys are talking about.

    I do however have now Launcher pro. :awesome:
    Cronos is one of many devs that makes ROMs for rooted Heroes, +/- uses CronosDroid and I use elelinux's(another dev) 2.2 SE RC1.

    This is the theme I used before but I changed the font back to 'normal'

    I can't remember what the Sense Dialer was like, or why it's better. I'll have a look. :cyber:

    Weird. :mute:

    I've not rooted my SGS but I did install Froyo and flash the kernel, it's a lot faster now...

    Also does anyone have the Desire HD? My mates got it and it lags pretty bad...obviously I haven't touched the FW cos he's thinking of sending it back so I don't wanna void his warranty.

    I still think the SGS is better though...

    Used the SGS's recover mode and it's pretty easy, just used Odin to flash the kernel then update it through recovery mode. Those guys at xda are awesome. :yep:

    How would you know you're phones rooted anyway? :holmes:

    Install SU permission and a root app.

    If SUP pops up asking you to allow/deny then you are rooted.

    I have the Desire HD, had it two days now, probably the best phone i've used in a long time, has your friend updated it? And try a factory reset, all the problems people are having, i haven't had any, not even the battery dying quickly, my battery has lasted from 100% for about 11 hours, and its only on about 30% now and i've been using it for demanding games such as Angry Birds, listening to music for about 20 minutes and using the internet constantly for about 7 hours, including checking emails and having one or two calls. People need to stop whinging about the phone itself, its a smartphone and the battery obviously isn't going to last long on such a high demanding phone.

    it's not rooted then :p: I could root it but I can't see the benefits yet tbh. Phone's a lot faster than when I first got it and it's 2.2 so I'm good for now...I think. I can't help but tinker with it, it's pretty hard to brick so you know....

    No they only got internet hooked up to their place this Friday, I've used the software and compared it to mine and it is definitely slower, no doubt about it...

    I'll tell him to factory reset and update it and see if that helps, it was pretty annoying though.

    Yeah it should do, mine was T-mobile branded and a really old version as well :rolleyes:

    I think you void your warranty when you do update the FW this way but I wasn't going to be able to do an OTA update since my sim card is on O2/Tesco so I didn't hang around. What FW have you got on there atm?

    It was the first site that came up on Google news :p:

    But I do know that for the SGS Froyo has only recently started coming through in the UK so I think they're right even if they can't write it properly. :mmm:

    Yeah but I mean which FW is it on Éclair, go into Settings --> About phone then scroll down and have a look at the Baseband version...what does it say?

    It should say something like I9000XXxxx....
