Google Nexus One is the first Android phone that includes live wallpapers. This phone runs on the Android 2.1 OS. HTC Hero, Motorola Droid users will have to wait for the Android 2.1 software update to get the live wallpapers feature.
But the wait for HTC Hero is over. A developer at xda-developers forums has released CKDroid ROM for Hero (GSM version) which is based on Android 2.1 and includes live wallpapers.
In my ongoing ROM exploration, yesterday I found another ROM for the HTC Hero. So far, MoDaCo 3.0 is the only ROM that I have found stable and worth using. Infact, I’m using it as my primary ROM.
A developer at XDA Developers, AychTeeSee, has modified the MoDaCo 3.0 ROM and released a Vanilla version of it. This ROM is a modified version of Paul’s (mostly) without HTC features/bloat.
Yesterday I wrote a tutorial about how you can install Android 2.1 on your HTC Hero. I used Lox’s HERO21 ROM in that tutorial that ROM was slow and quite buggy, so here’s another ROM I tried by Hik@Ri.
This ROM looks much more stable and faster than the previous one I shared. Here’s the tutorial so you can also give it a try.
Lately, I’ve been playing with various ROMs and mods available for the HTC Hero and Droid. The latest Community Release 1.8 of Android 2.1 is quite stable faster than previous releases so I thought of giving it a try.
Installation required a wipe and it went really smooth without any issues. This tutorial will help you try out the Android 2.1 OS and retain your current ROM so you can revert back anytime you want.
HTC Expresso is the next update to the HTC’s Sense UI which will make its way to HTC phones like Hero and Droid Eris somewhere around the first half of 2010.
A system dump of HTC Expresso for HTC Hero with Android 2.1 has been leaked out in the wild and is available for download for developers.
Just today I did a tutorial on how you can root your HTC Hero and install the latest Amon Ra Recovery Image.
Now if you’re looking for installing and loading a new custom ROM i.e MoDaCO 2.9 or later, on your HTC Hero, I’d recommend you carefully follow the tutorial below.
I just wrote about how you can get Android 2.0 on HTC Hero, and now here’s another post I’m sharing how you can grab Android 2.1 for HTC Hero!
This ROM is by behnaam, a developer at xda-developers and has ported Android 2.1 ROM to HTC Hero which you can load and try on your phone.
