My Hero-ic Effort

A while back I blogged about possible uses for my old HTC Hero.  I had decided to refit it into a standalone media player.

To begin I rooted my old phone and installed the sleeker Cyanogenmod Android OS.  Then I plunked down $12 for an 8 gig microSD card.  Today I capped it off with a new battery that I bought from eBay for $3.99.  I've charged the battery to 52% and had it playing music for an hour straight.  It hasn't budged from 52%.

I would declare success but there's one small problem.  Apparently my OS has trouble playing long videos.  It's minor in my book but there's I'm looking into it.

Technology rocks!
