Has anyone used this yet? It sounds like it is very easy and kind of a "one click" process. I have had my Hero for about a year now. I have read many different posts on rooting the phone. I have decided I would try that to see what a difference it will make. So any feedback about this particular process would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Norman

Default It worked for me!

I'm not a techno geek guy at all. Just overheard some friends talk about how they "rooted" there phones over the weekend. I decided to read up a little monday/tuesday. Read the GB thread on this site and later found this One-Touch Root method which apparently just came out.

I had 2.1 w update 1.
Down loaded file, had to run HTC sync, followed directions and it was rooted.

I later went to the GB thread and followed directions there. I had to dig into other links like "how to flash a ROM" "how to boot in recovery".... to comprehend the GB thread. Like I said, I'm new to all this. Had Hero for over a year and figured if I screwed up (unrecoverably), I'd just upgrade to an Evo. Now I'm going to hold on to this for a while!

Now my phone:
Android V2.3.3

Downloaded "Barnacle" App and Wifi hotspot is working as well! Now I need to figure out what other goodies lie in a rooted Hero. Speed seems to have improved, batt life--jury is still out, but I'm optimistic. Having to redownload apps to try it all out.

Just wanted to let you know if I can do it, anyone can. Thanks to those who make it easy for dumbies like me! First time I've ever dealt with software....ever.

Default already rooted. Will this still work?

I followed similar instructions and rooted my hero a few weeks ago. Can I start from scratch and follow these instructions as if I had never rooted before or will there be complications?

Why? If you are already rooted, no need to do it again.

Hey DonB, could I ask you to put my most recent version in post #1 instead of post #3, just to make sure everyone is using the same and correct version? Thanks

Hope you guys are enjoying the program. Let me know if there are any problems with it and I'll fix them asap

I'm having a problem with this guys. I don't even have the phone connected to the computer and as soon as I open the program on the status bar at the bottom it says,
"Connected - Not a CDMA Hero". I don't have the phone hooked up and it give me that message. Any ideas?

Ok, thanks. I checked on the XDA forum and a couple other people had that issue too, but seems like it kind of got skipped over.

Hey, sorry about this problem you're having. I've been looking in to it for the past few days, and I have just come up with a better solution. I'm rewriting the entire program with better code lol. I should have it done in a day or so. I just kind of hacked this version together on my cruise ship without regards to oop or really any traditional programming techniques haha. So look forward to a newer version soon!

Ok, I'm totally new to all of this and don't understand a lot of the terminology that is being used, so bear with me. But I have been reading up on this a lot trying to learn what I can. Am I to understand that by doing this process above that I don't need to do anything past that? I have read about picking a new ROM and all of that but it doesn't mention that above. Please, be gentle. And thanks!

The process above will root your Sprint HTC Hero and flash the ClockworkMod Recovery for you. What would be left for you to do would be to make a Nandroid backup and then flash a new ROM and GApps if you flash a non Sense UI ROM.

If you need specific details about performing what I said above, feel free to start a thread in this forum asking about it. We will take care of you.

Ok, I appreciate that. I guess I would like some advice as well on what to use. I am just looking to speed up my phone and get better battery life. I don't need to try to take over the world with it, you know?
Any suggestions?
And I'll definitely post a thread about the Nandroid backup...

I would recommend trying out AOSP Android 2.2 version 0.9.9.2 although AOSP Android 2.3 is good too. Both will speed up your smartphone and most likely yield better battery life than Android 2.1.

I have added a post about Nandroid backups in the thread you created. Check it out.

Thanks again for your help. Now another question...where would I find those once ready and how would I do it? And is it easy? Ok, so that's three questions.

Go here for AOSP Android 2.2: [ROM][GPL][STABLE] aospMod v0.9.9.2 | AOSP 2.2.1 (Froyo) [12/10/2010] . Go here for AOSP Android 2.3: http://androidforums.com/sprint-hero-all-things-root/243099-rom-aospcmod-aosp-2-3-3-cm7-gingerbread-03-07-2011-a.html .

It is pretty easy. You put the ROM of your choice on your microSD card, along with the GApps, which are the Google apps that are not packaged with the custom ROMs. You boot into recovery make a Nandroid backup like I explained in the other thread. You wipe cache and data, then into Advanced and wipe Dalvik cache, and then into Partitions and format boot, cache, data, and system. Then you flash the ROM from your SD card, and afterward, flash the GApps using the same method as the ROM. Just reboot your Sprint HTC Hero and you will have to sign into your Google account and then start setting things up.

I think I'm about to start this process, finally. I hope you're on standby! Also, before I start, do I need to have HTC Sync installed on my PC? And I do have to have USB Debugging checked and Mounted as Disk Drive when I connect, right?

Nope. You do not need HTC Sync to accomplish a root via RegawMod as far as I know.

As for USB Debugging, I am not 100% sure on that but you probably do need it on. Turn it on as it will not hurt anything and you can always turn it back off after you are finished rooting.

That depends on your computer. Do you have a 32-bit computer or 64-bit computer?

If it is 32-bit, go with the x86 version. If it is 64-bit, go with the x64 version.

Ok, but now I'm having the same issue as ccoll5 was up above. It tells me that it's not a CDMA Hero and I'm not even plugged in yet. I downloaded the 1.3 x86 this time.

I would open a new thread for your yourself, this is where i update the Regaw app, not really a place to root your phone, open a new thread and this way you can refer back to it when needed

Do you know how to use IRC? Go here: Android Forums . It is up to you if you want to or not.

I will have the same user name in there as I do here. See you there if you can.

It is better if he opens a new thread so others can learn also

I actually have no idea how to deal with the RegawMod issue, DonB. I was just going to show him how to root via Z4Root.

If anyone else knows how to fix that problem, then that would be great to post in this thread. Thanks.

It is simple, mount and one click and it is done, Z4Root will do the same, which ever he prefers, I was simply trying to0 keep this thread on track, thus the reason why I mentioned to open his own thread for quick reference

Oh, I totally agree with your reasoning. The thread should be about RegawMod.

I think I even mentioned earlier in this thread for him to start another thread about it. Keeping threads on topic is important.

I'm rooted my phone using RegawMOD Hero Rooter v1.3. But when I tried to do a Nandroid backup by pressing volume down and power button and then clicking Home to get to the Recovery option, the phone display the red triangle error screen. What am I doing wrong and what should I do to backup my system before installing custom rom. thanks

Try running the Rooter again, every once in a while the rooter gives a false positive. I like to say it's 99.9% effective lol.

Are you using Windows XP? I have found out that it's only windows XP users having problems with this rooter. I'm still trying to find someone to help me out to debug it on XP, sonce I dont have XP..
