I’ve finally upgraded to Android 2.1 the HTC Hero (T-Mobile G2) I’ve been using. For the most part this is a safe process, and the chances to brick it are virtually none (if understand it correctly !…).
Here’s the guide I’ve followed: [Guide] Complete Newbie Guide to Install a Custom Rom [Updated 16/07]. And yes, I had to “Goldcard” it…
I’ve tried out a few ROMs and stopped at VanillaEclair 5.0-build7 – for no particular reason. It worked, some of the others had some flaw that I’ve encountered, I’m afraid it wasn’t a very scientific decision...
For the little I’ve tested, I’ve I liked:
- The mail. Finally!
- VPN and proxy support.
What I didn’t like:
- Loosing the cool HTC apps and widget… oh well..
I’m afraid I couldn’t connect to my company’s VPN :(
