Finally, HTC have made the kernel to the beloved HTC Hero available to developers to have their way with. Until now, one of the biggest issues for those wanting to develop for the HTC Hero was the fact that the ROM was not publically available. Now these wrongs have been made right and for those that are interested, the HTC Hero kernel can be obtained from HTC’s development center.

Not to quash all the hard work performed by HTC with a wave of a hand, I should mention that the beautiful HTC Sense UI was a masterpiece in the first place. However, it is now very likely that we shall see coders make speed improvements, tweaks, modifications and all sorts of crazy things that will alter the user interface somewhat. Indeed, it may allow those interested in building their own user interfaces an insight into how to go about starting.
