You need to boot into your Recovery. If you flashed CM7, then you have a recovery. Even if you're stuck in a boot loop. Sooo, pull the battery, then put it back in. Then hold the Home button, and I believe volume down (it may be volume up as well, I haven't had to boot into recovery on my Hero in along time) while you power on the phone. Then, once in the Recovery you can just re-flash CM7, or you can run your Nandroid backup (You did make sure to make one, right?) and go back to completely stock, but still rooted.
Oh yeah?! Well, my mom says I'm cool!
