I joined the Hero club

by on Jan.12, 2010, under HTC Hero

So finally decided to upgrade the HTC Tytn II and I ditched the world of WinMo and went for an HTC Hero…

So far so good, the phone feels nice in the hand and the touch screen takes a little bit of getting used to especially for me coming from a resistive touchscreen like the Tytn II but I seem to have the hang of it now.

Have attempted to root the phone in order to put a Modaco ROM on it but I can’t seem to get through the root’ing process.  I keep getting a “backup failed” message when using the FlashRec app… further investigation reveals that I’ll probably need to downgrade my hero in order to be able to root it :(

UPDATE 14 January 2010: Managed to root the Hero by using the downgrade method mentioned here. It seems as though the “one click” rooting method will not work for Hero’s with a Build Version of 2.73.405.66 and a downgrade is necessary in order to root it.
