[ROM-DEV] 03/04/10 | CDMA Hero Eclair 2.1 v2 | NEW Eris 2.1 Base!

Geek For Me is proud to release:

Android 2.1 - v2 (beta) for your CDMA HTC Hero!

Why another build? And why back to 2.1?
We were ecstatic last night when the Eris 2.1 release got leaked. We had hoped it would help us get camera and mms working (it hasn't) however it did give us a MUCH smoother build and cleaner base to build off of. "Out of the box" almost nothing was working. Luckily toast was quick to be able to adapt the current fixes we had in the other rom to this one. I then took it and cleaned it up a bit. We're happy to release this because while it still isn't a daily rom for most users, I think you'll amazed at how smooth this build runs.

Keep in mind that this is still a beta/development rom. It is not meant as a daily rom and does have bugs.

Major thanks to toastcfh (donate to him) because without him this rom wouldn't be where it is.
Honorable mention to: madcoder (aka maejrep), and quietcblongs for their continued help

This rom is based on the leaked HTC Eris 2.1 rom for Verizon.

Changes to the new 2.1 base:
  • Market with protected apps (thanks to this being a proper build)
  • Gmail push working (because it's a proper build)
  • Multitouch (toast)
  • Multihome (toast)
  • Accelerometer sensor (toast)
  • GPS.conf (thanks to theoottesen)
  • OpenGL ES Lite driver (thanks to phhusson and MrPippy for the patches they made for winmo devices -- yes, winmo!)
  • Removed Verizon updater app (flipz)
  • Removed Verizon bootscreen (flipz)
  • Moved QO and Maps to /data/ because /system/ was full (flipz)
  • Added busybox (toast)
  • Added SuperUser (flipz)
  • Added WifiTether 1.7-pre-2 (flipz)


Doesn't work :
  • Camera
  • Visual voicemail
  • MMS


How to flash it:
  1. Boot in to recovery and create a nandroid backup
  2. Use the menu item "Wipe data/factory reset" (yes, a restore is required)
  3. Apply it like a normal update.zip -- be patient. The first boot will take a while.
  4. After it finishes booting for the first time, restart it at least once!

All general warnings apply when flashing this rom, just like any other.

Re: [ROM-DEV] CDMA Hero Eclair 2.1 | developers only

Just an update for you guys (no new download available)

-Got wifi working (that was an easy one of just replacing the driver. A few guys on xda found the same thing).

- I was also able to get it to recognize on the Sprint network and both make and receive text messages, how I've stumbled in to a huge memory leak that is causing the phone to become non-responsive and only have 7Mb of free memory after a short period of time.

Huge pot of coffee on. Let's see what else can get done today.
