I was following the wiki for rooting and flashing CM6. It says in order to flash the new radio I need to have s-off set. If so is the best way to just use unrevoked forever? This is what I was following: Full Update Guide - HTC Incredible - CyanogenMod Wiki
I installed Fresh Evo 0.3 on a stock Evo and everything was fine and dandy. ES File Explorer worked, ROM Manager, everything, etc. I then decided to flash the latest radio update as well. Upon the reboot, all my settings got lost, I had to redo my email, etc but the radio got updated. It also looks like all the apps Fresh 0.3 included now went missing. Did I do something wrong or it this a bug?
I installed Fresh 2.1.1 today, and everything was working fine.I attempted to update the radio, and I think my phone reverted back to 1.5, so I had to reinstall Fresh again.To install the radio, I followed the instructions here: How To: Flash a Radio Update Sprint HTC Hero Geek For Me Android CDMA Sprint Hero
So I updated to villain 10 which I love, but I also updated the radio. Now I have no 3G icon, the signal bars are there but no data icon after turning off the wifi. Is this villian rom or the radio update? Any ideas how to fix this?
I rooted my phone a while back and I am trying to update the recovery image. I think the recovery image I have downloaded (recovery-RA-hero-v1.6.2) has some extra options such as being able to flash the radio which is what I want to do. I have updated my rom to 2.1 by copying the image accross and naming it update.zip and booting into recovery and applying the update. That is fine and I am now running SenseHERO-2.1_signed-update. I have tried using flashrec but it fails with "cannot run command" and I think it is because I already have a patched recovery image. What is the best thing to do? Can I update my recovery image manually from the command line? Can I update the radio in the same way? Have I misunderstood the procedure?
I have read up a lot about rooting my phone, and I think I might give it a go, mainly to get rid of some of the bloatware on the sprint hero, and also for the apps2sd capability. My question is however, how will this effect my ability to update to android 2.1 in the first half of next year. Will I have to wait for a custom ROM to be made or will i be able to update as normal?
I have rooted my phone just to delete some of the sprint crap apps. Now my question is since I did not flash a custom ROM on to my device will I be able to update the phone when Sprint releases the OTA Update or will I have to use the RUU_Hero_C_Sprint_1.56.651.2_signed_release.exe to put my phone back to factory stock. (Also can I just do a hard reset to accomplish the same thing).
The Apps I removed: Sprint Nascar Stocks Amazon Mp3

I know you can remove those bogus stock apps by rooting the hero but I have a slightly different question that I couldn't find in other threads. I am interested in rooting my hero just to remove the bloatware and then unroot the phone back to its original ROM. I am not a huge fan of tinkering with my electronics because it voids warranties, possibly bricks devices, and causes trouble with firmware updates, but it really ticks me off that sprint forces these apps on us and then makes them impossible to uninstall. Imagine getting a new PC and not being able to remove crap like wild tangent and the 20 free trials for programs you don't want or need. I know this isn't news to anyone here, but every time I see that Nascar app I get irritated. Seriously sprint? Nascar? Anyway, my questions are 1.) is root/unroot possible to remove bloat and return to original state 2.) has anyone had success uninstalling pieces of the bloat without rooting? I don't want to uninstall anything integral to the phone like the stock messages app, but Nascar has gots to go!
Let's say the user starts with a 16GB, class 6 SD card. What are the benefits of storing apps to the SD card? Does it let the phone run smoother? Does it allow you to install more apps on your phone? What are the cons? Do apps take longer to open/load? Is there a risk of damaging the SD card and/or the phone? If someone could explain this to me as thoroughly as possible.
I rooted my phone for the first time yesterday. I have not yet flashed any ROM's, all I have done so far is remove some of the stock apps. I have lost my data connection a couple times today, usually a reboot will solve it, however it hasn't on one or two occasions. It seems to have started happening after changing my boot animation to something closer to the 1.5 boot animation. Is it possible that this new boot animation is causing my data connection problems.
I'm new to the Android scene and was wondering what pro's (and con's if any) people are experiencing after rooting on the Desire (apps to sd being a good one). Looking through the forums I've noticed a lot of people experiencing data switching/connection problems, does the new radio file help with this?
Atrack Dog doesn't work too well in 2.1. I have 2.1 and the OTA patch for it. What is the best app updater now in 2.1? I like staying on top of the versions for the applications in my hero. What are you guys using.
I have the 1.5 right now as i didnt see any reason to update as my phone has left me happy. But i consider it now and want to know will i loose my apps if i update say i have shapewriter and its no longer avalible on the market and i update will i not be able to get it back.
I have been trying to update radio.I am running fresh 188.8.131.52 and my current baseband is 1.39.00.05.31 i am trying to update to 2.15.00.09.01.I am booting into recovery using my computer and the recovery-windows.bat command. i wipe both caches and apply the zip. It shows it writing and goes through the motions with the reboots but when the phone comes back on i dont get the messages that i updated on the home screen. when i go to the software information screen it still shows baseband of 1.39 and PRI 1.40_003.
