    Question is, how to get it back running again? Winner gets a Thumbs Up! :)

    Indications: WIll not turn on, no charge light when plugged in, no lit screen, anything.

    What happened? I was excited about running the HTC Hero MoDaCo Custom 1.5 rom this morning.

    10/Mar 3.2 - MoDaCo Custom ROM for GSM Hero (now with online kitchen) - Android @ MoDaCo

    Near the bottom of the first thread it recommended that i "install the latest radio from my 'update zips' topic if you have not done so"

    So I did, got 63.18.55.06JU_6.35.09.26 this radio.

    Not quite sure what a radio even is, i went ahead and put the .zip file on my sd card, did a recovery reboot, formatted the drive of data, cache and then loaded that .zip file

    After it installed, saw it said needs reboot to finish installation, so i did. and Low! :eek: it hasnt been on since........

    I might be wrong, but I think its bricked. It looked like you flashed a rom and radio for the GSM Hero whereas our phones on Sprint are CDMA

    Yup definitely bricked. Your fried the hardware, so you no longer have a software/firmware issue. Sorry, man.
