    I will probably root my phone when it is out of warranty but I will probably never overclock it. Just doesn't seem a good thing to do to something without a cooling system that you would put in a computer that is overclocked
    You can set min/max frequencies for when (or rather if!) the battery reaches a chosen temperature.
    It's all software, not hardware overclocking.

    when does your warranty run out? I expect I will sell my phone and upgrade before the warranty goes.

    Rooted my phone for the first time and installed one of the 2.1 ROMs... Everything seems to work, which I wasn't expecting! 2.1 is nice. :cool:

    Does android 1.6 support flash on a web browser?
    Full flash support will be hardware dependant. Flash Lite runs on all Android phones on the market at the moment.

    I was under the impression that it was built into the HTC browser o.O

    Obviously after it's official release it will have APIs that allow other apps to call upon it..

    does the x10 have it?


    also android 2.2 will support adobe flash 10.1
    http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/...support-flash/
    Not sure about X10..

    2.2 will support Flash 10.1.. but only on specific hardware. Namely the Nexus One/Desire/Evo/Incredible/X10. Not the Hero (Officially) and potentially the Legend.

    really? I was under the impression that the majority of the decent iPhone apps had equivilents on Android...


    On a side note. I'm having a problem with my HTC Hero at the moment. When someone rings me, the screen lights up and I can see who is calling, but it takes a good 3-4 seconds before the phone actually rings. This is obviously a problem when the phone is in my pocket because the person is ringing for about 4 seconds before I even hear it. Does anyone else have this problem?

    Every functional app has more or less got a good equivelant. Games are a different story, there are some gems but not a constant stream of them, Adobe AIR could change this.

    As for your issue, it's just lag. You may wish to invest in a time-based task killer. Or if you are rooted install Auto Memory Manager (tweaks the built in task manager) and flash the overclock kernal (there is a BIG difference between 528mhz and 768mhz :_O).

    How much battery life do you lose from this?

    Not much tbh, I have it running between 691 and 768mhz when my screen is on (and when charging) and beteen 480 and 614mhz when screen is off. Also if power drops bellow 26% or temp goes above 50C then it lowers it.

    It's 100% configurable.
    If you want an idea of what I mean without flashing it, try overclock widget from the Market (it doesn't over clock you, but it gives you control over the clock speed under different circumstances.
    Chances are I have better battery than you because the processor is in ondemmand mode

    fair enough. Thanks, I'm not rooted due to warranty. But I do use ataskkiller fairly regularly... It has only stated happening since I reset my Hero. Everything seems to be running slower since I did that. Very annoying.

    Just flashed to VillainROM 5.5 (Eclair). It's been working well, quite stable so far, relatively quick, though slower than MoDaCo 3.2 (cupcake).

    Seen this on Phandroid. It is good news.
    I would like more people in the UK to adopt Android.. But tbh a large global user base means more developers regardless of country
