I followed all the steps from [Guide] Root/ROM FAQ/Tutorial and installed Fresh. However, when the phone comes up everything is [OK] but in the bottom Initialize Fresh Rom [Wait] flashing.It keep on rebooting and comes to same point for past 30 minutes.Did I messed the rooting part or ROM installed?Is there anything can be done here? or do I wait?
Made this video to show a friend what this custom ROM was all about, figured i could share it with those that might be interested. Really shows off its speed and style. YouTube - HTC Hero ROOTED Fresh 1.1 ROM
I haven't rooted or flashed a new ROM to my phone yet, but I'm thinking about it.After reading Fresh 2.0d seems like a good one, especially since it doesn't have all the bloatware with it.The only app that I want from the bloatware is the Sprint Navigation.I saw the file to reinstall all the applications back, but I only want the Navigation.Does anyone know how to flash just that app to the phone and skip the rest of the Sprint bloatware?
a little background info, rooted my first hero no problem using fresh kitchen, but ended up bricking my phone. got my new hero today from sprint, came home connected it up to 2 different computers to try and root it but in both cases both htc sync and kitchen dont see my phone, but i can run the tests in kitchen and see my sd card if i mount it.my build number is 1.56.651.2 cl85027 release-key and it says my hardware version is 002 if that helps.
im new to this whole rooting thing.i was able to root my phone last night but im running into a problem trying to install fresh rom.Sorry if this has been answered before, but ive looked everywhere and cant find anything.Can anyone please help me out im probably having a blonde moment and hopefully its just something silly.Im working on a mac if that makes a difference.
A couple of weeks ago, frustrated by the lack of attention from Sprint, I took the plunge and rooted. I flashed the Fresh ROM and have not looked back. Now that 2.1 is out, is there anyone out there that has hands on with both that can compare the two? Basically, I'm looking to find out if I should swap over to Eclair.
What is the best way to overclock Fresh 2.3.3? I am just looking for something I can flash once and be done with it. Want it to make the phone faster and get better battery life. Is 710 kernel/OC Widget combo best? Looking for links... Thanks! looking for something like gumbo custom kernel...
I know this has probably been discussed several places but I cant seem to decipher the information that I need. I use to use a "clear" lockscreen on fresh 1.5. I recently flashed to fresh 2.1.2 and I found that the grey arch is back on my lockscreen. what Im wondering is if there is anyway that I can get rid of that grey arch WITHOUT using a vanilla style lockscreen (I like the simplicity of just the clock and which ever picture I choose)
I have a Sprint HTC Hero, and I rooted my phone about a week ago. I flashed the Fresh 1.1 ROM, and since then I don't think I have been receiving all my text messages. Could the rooting and Fresh be the cause? If so should I go back to the factory settings?
I flashed from the old Fresh 1.1 to its latest ROM. I followed the instructions step by step. Now when my hero boots up i get "Sorry the process android.process.media has stopped unexpectedly please try again." and "Sorry the process com.google.process.gapps has stooped." Then i get the "Complete action using" screen HTC Sense or Launcher. It seems like if i click HTC Sense i keep getting the Force Quit but if i select Launcher i get to the home screen but cant place phone calls......
It's time for my family to get new phones, and I like the price of Sprint's Everything Data Family plan. I've been playing around with a friend's Hero and I really like what I've seen so far. I do have a few questions about it though.Is the Hero still worth it? I know it's a fairly old phone, so how does it stack up to the newer Android phones on the market? I'm already ruling out the EVO because I just can't get on board with its size. It just seems a bit gaudy for me.I'm too frugal to buy a phone before I'm eligible for an upgrade. And I've read at a few places that the Hero is pretty close to being obsolete (not getting an official 2.2 upgrade). So would it be wise to buy the Hero with a new contract, knowing I'd have to be with it for the next 2 years. I don't know anything about rooting or modifying phones. How does that work? Would rooting and installing custom ROMs delay the phone's obsolescence?I guess my main concern is that I don't want to commit to a phone that may not hold up over the next few years.
This is for Rooted users with fresh rom using Pre-kitchen.Can someone tell me how to use kitchen?I have fresh 1.1, I downlaoded pre-kitchen to my PC and unzipped to it's own folder.I open the exe and the kitchen pops up. If I try to click "help" and send test message it says it's not connected. have I missed something?
In a word, this combo is *awesome*. Very easy to install once I figured out the .NET issue with my windows pc (just needed to update the .NET stuff, @ windowsupdate.com, pretty easy), and very easy to use, though it sure would be nice if the "Kitchen Tutorial" section of geekforme.com was completed. I'm a clicker and tweaker by nature and I knew I couldn't screw up too badly (just flash it back to stock and start over if things turn sour) so away I went. There really is no need to fear with this (pre) Kitchen set up.The auto-root was FAST and very easy. Pulling unwanted applications and pushing files to the device, also simple. Even swapping the theme and lock screen was pretty easy. A good, solid tutorial on the site (which I understand is in progress) would have helped, but there are good people in this and other forums who are happy to help if one gets stuck.
I had rooted my phone previously and removed many stock applications, so I did not notice as large of a performance jump that most do coming from a stock device, but it seems a bit snappier, post Fresh.I have noticed that my battery seems to be draining quicker post Fresh. I charged fully before bed, placed the phone in Airplane Mode and set it on the table. When I woke up this morning, the device had dropped to 50% in 6-7 hours of no use. I don't recall seeing any threads talking about speedy drain post root/fresh, so I'm looking into it. There are no apps installed that I didn't have on the phone before I noticed faster battery drain, save for those installed with Fresh.I'd say it was due to me playing with it more, but I was sleeping... Unless I'm fiddling with it in my sleep... The phone shows an up time of 8hr 27min with an awake percentage of 81%. It seems I've missed something that's keeping the phone awake. Suggestions?
I did a wipe and clean install for Fresh 2.1.1 and have no speak phone on phone calls. I have nothing from the speaker.Tested it a few times, never works with a phone call.Speaker works for media - MP3 and custom ringers etc.Is the a known issue and or fix for this ?
A couple days ago I flashed the 2.1 icon pack, used MetaMorph to apply a theme and ended up getting force closures. I did a wipe and restored my last nandroid -- no luck. Then I restored with the RUU and put Fresh 1.1 on my phone. I want to switch to MoDaCo 2.2 but when I do I'm getting those force closes again.
Is anyone else having this problem, I cant connect to either of my computers (one vista, one XP) using my phone ever since I flashed Fresh 2.0d. I can connect to charge, but not as disk drive, so basically I can't flash Damages new ROM like I've been wanting to.
Kind of new to this so if you would please stick with me I would appreciated it. I flashed to Fresh 2.0d yesterday w/o any real issues and now it appears that I can not make out going calls (in-coming as well possibly). I get a 'your account can not be verified' message. I also received an email referring to my purchase of a new 'nexus one' this morning, not really sure what that is all about. All the data stuff seem seems to be working fine sms, email, internet etc. (voicemail I have no idea about though).I could really use a hand here, this is my only phone, I am feeling a bit cut off atm and if I don't call my mom tomorrow I'm am really in trouble!
I'm ready to root my Evo just looking for detailed instructions on how to get Fresh 053 on there. Read that I needed to do something with the NAND? Can anyone point me to a link for instructions on installing it from stock release day rom to newest Fresh version. I also updated with the OTA when it was pushed to my phone earlier if that matters.
New to rooting but I got sick of reading the 2.1 spec threads so I decided to root. I used pre-kitchen to auto root. All went well. I also just flashed the fresh 2.0d ROM. I was wondering how to install or flash or whatever, the fresh-2.0d-audiofix.zip.
Just completed my first root of my Hero, and plan to install Fresh 2.1.1, but I am unclear on the matter of apps2sd being built into it (is it?) and whether I need to back up my entire 16g sd card before I load 2.1.1. I can live with not using apps2sd if it means I don't need to re-copy my entire sd card which is near full.
i was just curious if anyone out there has removed the apk for YouTube on Fresh 1.1? i've heard that removing apk's can sometimes bring unwanted results anyhow, i removed it cuz i never use it - and it has to be manipulated to work anyhow...i end up just using the browser.
I rooted the phone a while back and was using fresh 1.1, probably over a month ago. Recently I've been missing incoming text messages and now not receiving my exchange emails, so I figured I'd go ahead and update to 2.0d (sticking with fresh). I downloaded the zip and flashed it but it didn't boot up (waited over 30 minutes) it just stayed on with the animated HTC text. Multiple attempts with the same results. Even tried Damagecontrol 2.08 and it boots and and I even get the sprint animated logo but stays at the htc "quietly brillant" and goes no further.
