Just how do I root my HTC Hero?
I'm fed up with awaiting my Android 2.1 upgrade to get here, so I've determined to root my HTC Hero.
Any kind of instructions regarding just how I should do this?
Keep in mind: I in fact have a T-Mobile branded variation, so I do require some workaround due to the fact that it does not allow itself be opened as conveniently as vanilla HTC Heros.

- Let it run till it claims it has actually finished
- Ensure you see Superuser in your application cabinet
Like you, I obtained fed up with awaiting OTA upgrade from Orange. Making use of VillainRom 12, which is great. No remorses!
UniversalAndroot - Awesome device that is EXTREMELY! easy. I utilized it for my Sprint HTC Hero all I did was download the.apk at the end of the blog post, placed it on my sdcard. Ran it off my SDCard using Estrong File Explorer and also it rooted my tool flawlessly. After it origins, run Rom Manager and also install the ClockWorkMod Recovery Screen. Afterwards, locate the ROM you intend to blink.
Good good luck!
