HTC Hands Keys to Hero Kingdom Over to Developers

hero_kernelUp until now, developers looking to create a great Hero/Sense ROM have had a difficult time. With no open-source kernel to work with, anyone wanting to mod or customize a Hero build has has to work with limited resources. That will no longer be the case, thanks to HTC.
