    Did you install HTC Sync first? You need to install that first before you run the Android 2.1 executable.

    You can find HTC Sync here: htcsync2.0.35.exe

    Or you can search these forums and XDA for one click root and it will root your .6 just like it did mine. I rooted and ROMd my Hero without ever plugging it into a PC. Yes downloading ROMs over 3G takes a while but it can be done.

    ROM manager. You can get it off the Market. It makes things easier.
    I used the one click root and then downloaded ROM Manager, Root Manager, and Root explorer. I downloaded Fresh 2.4 and installed it with ROM manager. Spend a little money with the devs for these apps because they make rooting and roming super easy.
