    It's a lot buggier than the Eris one because the Eris' hardware is so similar to the Hero's.

    Apparently with the first release you couldn't turn the phone off... lol
    Exactly why I'm not running it just yet :P

    Not that I ever turn my phone off.. Just don't wanna loose my apps.. Again.

    You could use Titanium Backup to back up apps. It works well and links the apps to the market so you'll still be able to check updates etc.

    It would be nice if you could backup settings as well, I don't like having to add wifi passwords all over again.

    Totally forgot it wasn't this site I posted on..

    I did a Nandroid+EXT backup and wiped to go to Villain 3.2.. After using Titanium to reinstall apps (it has root access so why can't it do it without prompts?!?!??!) I decided to revert to my backup MCR 3.1.. However the EXT restore failed so I had to Titanium again with all the prompts D:

    I may however try this new ROM, I am bored and don't wish to study.

    I was just about to ask if there was some kind of app to back up stuff. I knew there was one to back up apps, but do you know of anything that would back up scenes so that I don't have to reposition all the shortcuts and folders?

    Unfortunately I don't think there is.

    Just tried out the new ROM based on the Legend and I'm liking the small improvements HTC have made. The weather app isn't working for me and nor is street view on maps.

    Doesn't work. Just like street view, it starts to load then abruptly goes back to the previous screen.

    It is on rooted phones via some modded files.. But, due to licences held by current Sat Nav providers, Google cannot currently penetrate the market :'(

    That is true. What exactly is the license that is preventing them from penetrating the market? Is it the fact that it would be free and bundled with the OS?

    I really don't know specifics.
    But I assume it's that fact that it's free and easy to access. It produces competition that is more or less impossible to beat.

    Hmm, perhaps if that is the case then they could offer it for a small fee? I mean I don't know the specifics of the license but I wouldn't mind paying a small fee for google sat nav as opposed to the £50 or so that the other apps are going fot.
