Default update firmware, unbootable

hi. yesterday i rooted my hero to be able to run link2sd. that worked without problems. after that i went to menu-setting-about phone and firmware upgrade. after it upgraded i cant start my phone, it stops at "hero". i've trid home+back+onbutton. i've removed sd card and sim card. if i start hboot it says S=on. can i get security off without having to start the phone?

See this thread. Note the correct name required for the update file as confirmed by Xyro.... HEROIMG.ZIP.

You can only get S-OFF on the Hero by flashing an engineering bootloader, and it's not something that's recommended due to the risk of a "bricking" if the flash goes wrong.
