    Whatever the file browser is that Macs use?

    What are you actually wanting to sync?

    Photos and music. When I connect the Sensation to the Mac with the USB it doesn't come up in the finder bit.

    Try pulling the notification blind down and seeing if you can change the USB state.

    Think it's because I have the memory card from my nokia in it, so there's old files of apps, but also many things with names I don't recognise and just opens up to a window of codes :confused:

    I have an abundance of folders with not much in them. A lot of apps store some files on SD card to save internal memory etc etc. These folders are not deleted when you uninstall apps.

    There's so many empty folders, and a few things which the Mac can't open. I'm scared of deleting something important. Where the flip did a folder called rosie_scroll come from :confused:

    Oh right thank goodness I haven't deleted that yet then. Are 'tmp', 'cities', 'LOST.DIR', 'youmicache', 'qf', 'Devlog.fil' anything important? I don't understand any of them when I open and some are are lacking applications to be opened on the Mac

    I'm sure I have tmp/LOST. I'll post a screenshot later of my folders.


    Don't worry though. Most are likely game saves or caches. You won't break your phone deleting anything.

    What do you mean by root? :holmes:

    A way to get full admin rights on the filesystem of the phone.

    It's the Android equivalent of Jailbreaking an iPhone.

    That sounds rather amazing.

    Really quite like Timescape as well.
    That does look really good apart from I think 4.5 inches is a bit big.

    Yeah, I wouldn't want to be on a Hero anymore! Awesome phone back in the day though and still good dev support.

    Depends on when your contract runs out. honestly, If I had my Hero now and could upgrade, I'd go SGS2, root it and go with cyanogen mod. If I had to wait a couple more months, I'd probably hold out of an ICS native phone.

    Well it's edge to edge so will be about 13cm x 6.8cm - about as wide as the desire hd and a little taller

    Yeah, contract is up mid september so I either get one early september, before I go back to uni or wait for an ICS phone which may not have a brilliant deal that you can get with the SGSII http://www.buymobilephones.net/mobil...30,All,tt1,ct1
