Default [Help] China Hero H2000 Recovery Mode!

Hi, i bought my China Hero H2000 phone yesterday and iv been messing around with the android tools but there's one that is killing me atm and is the fact that i cant update the Market to the US one and the most updated atm (3.0.26), because every time i try to update it fails.

So i found on a website a way to install the market manually in a update.zip file on recovery mode, but this phone recovery mode only shows these options:

Reboot system now
apply sdcard:update.zip
wipe data/facory reset
wipe cache partition

but the apply sdcard:update.zip didn't work for me, so i decided to google a bit more and found an application called Rom Manager and with it a recovery application called ClockworkMod Recovery which does shows the proper options to do this update procedure. So i decided to give it a shot and install it, once i choose the option it asked me for my phone model so i choose HTC Hero thinking that it was going to work, the app installed successfully but once i booted into recovery mode the phone hangs at the little droid in the bottom right corner of the phone so i have to take the battery out and back in in order to make the phone work again.

So now im stuck with no recovery mode and my old recovery mode with the options i mention before is lost and i cant find any info on the web on how to get it back or how to get a proper recovery mode app to install the market, can anyone help me here pls?

What you got probably is HTC Hero clone. Various models of this kind of cell phone around the market, and the phone would work well if you are tech savvy and can do some modification wrok. There would not have many differences since Google Android is an open source OS except software such as the Market. So, generally, the phone would work without limit of entering Market after root or upgrade. I think it should be upgrade by file on sd card, but the problem might be you placed the HTC Hero model code resulting issue of compatibility. Now, the better way to deal with is to contact your vendor or the manufacturer to get the firmware, and then try to upgrade your phone successfully.

I do not know if it is a little late for you here or if you still have the phone. But if you flashed the CWM from playstore onto this phone it will not work regardless which one you use. Someone else made a custom CWM for the Hero H2000+ specifically and not sure about any other versions like the H7000+.

You can get the custom recovery img here: recovery.img

Then you want to follow the instructions on this blog. But instead of flashing the boot.img you will be flashing the recovery.img instead.

Hope this helps for those in the future.
