AJS13: I brought the Hero a couple of days ago and have been trying to set it up to work correctly on Vodafone. Basically I have got it set up to accept 3G so I can access Google Maps, Market and anything else that downloads data, but when I use the browser it doesnt load pages at all. I downloaded Opera Mini which works fine.
The normal android browser works fine in wifi mode.
Ive got the APN set up as follows:
Is this correct, or is there more to it?
If anyone could help me it would be fantastic.
Thanks in advance
peejayw: Go to the Market and download More Locale and set it to English NZ. Cany help with the rooting query, I am waiting until HTC bring out the update to 2.1 and see what that gives me.
chrisjunkie: IMO wait for the Nexus one to come out. That thing looks damn cool
peejayw: Market is an app on your phone, you dont access it thru the web. Just go to All Programs and look for Market, its icon looks like a white shopping bag with the Google Android on it.
I set up a new Google account from within the phone but I still can't see how to then get to Market. Or are you suggesting a complete reset of the phone?
stevenz: If you want to root a hero so you can either flash a generic ROM or a custom one, then check this out:
It's fairly comprehensive, and as long as you take your time and carefully follow the instructions, it's very easy.
Most of the apps you've listed come as standard in the custom ROMs.
