    Could increasing settings on MinFreeManager be a culprit for battery drain?

    I think I understand how MinFreeManager works, but not exactly. I recently increased the settings on MinFreeManager (from default to aggressive) along with some other minor changes on my phone, and noticed faster battery drain. Could the settings change I performed on MinFreeManager be a reason...

    If you go to menu > settings > accounts & sync, there is a checkbox for Auto-sync. This seems like the only way to have the weather on the flipclock widget auto update. However, I do NOT want Google contacts to be auto-updated... I dont use Google contacts, all my contacts are Phone contacts...

    How to remove unnecessary Sprint apps?

    So I've tried to do a search on this, but I've only been able to find either threads from 2009 way before the 2.1 update, or threads that did not completely answer my question. How do I remove unnecessary Sprint/HTC apps? And also, what are the apps that are safe to remove?

    Not able to give apps root access?

    So I've rooted my Hero, flashed a custom ROM, flashed a custom kernel, and then I downloaded some root-requiring apps (namely setCPU and Wifi Tether). However, whenever I open these apps, they do not ask me for Superuser Permissions! For example, when I open setCPU, it says "No root access...

    Hello. So I am still in the process of deciding whether to root or not, and I came across a question. I am not too familiar with the difference between odex and deodex. From what I was able to gather, deodex allows themes/customization while odex does not. But exactly what falls under that...

    Leaked 2.1 makes Hero LAGGIER than before?

    So at first, I thought the new 2.1 leak would make the phone faster, and honestly I could not tell for a while if it really did. But today, I've noticed that it has made the phone SLOWER.... ESPECIALLY while listening to music. 1.5 handled music ok (not well, just ok) but 2.1 makes the phone...
