HTC Hero not powering Up after Failed Upgradation to Andriod 2.1
I tried to upgrade my HTC Hero from Andriod 1.5 to 2.1 . Everything was OK but last moment Upgradation went failed and Handset automatically shutdown. I tried to powered it up but no fruitfull result. I checked the battery by inserting in some other handset, It was OK. Thats mean there is no issue with battery. Handset doesnt show charging indication while connected to charger. I also tried to power it up in safe mode by pressing combination of keys but no result.
Kindly suggest solutions to power up HTC Hero. Thanks in advance.

After you feel this vibration, try plugging the phone into your computer with a usb cable and see if the computer recognizes it. If it doesn't, then it appears that the phone is on but the screen isn't working. I don't know if that's a software addressable issue. If the screen has died, it needs to be replaced.
Recovery mode on the hero is done by removing the battery for a minute and then replace it.Hold the volume down key and press the power button.
If I plug the USB Cable in the pc and pressed home+power button, there is no vibration and computer screen doesnt show any device plugin......Secondly i tried to get recovery mode but no response from handset....
If he holds the volume down button and presses power, he can get into HBOOT and flash the Android 2.1 RUU .zip file, which does not require S-OFF. He would just have to press the trackball to apply it. It sort of sounds like his handset is bricked if he cannot even get into HBOOT. That is a shame.
