    First things first.... if it's getting as far as the bootscreen then it's not bricked. :)

    What procedure did you use to root the handset? I'm assuming that this occurred on first boot afterwards?

    KiNgxKxKlair Hero Eclair
    Rom Finder | The Droid Sector

    Required Radio: Latest Radio
    Required SPL: Death SPL

    I downloaded and flashed

    Latest Radio

    * 2.22.19.26I
    * Baseband Version: 62.50S.20.17H_2.22.19.26I
    * http://sapphire-port-dream.googlecode.com/files/ota-radio-2_22_19_26I.zip

    Latest SPL

    * 1.33.2005
    * MUST FLASH RADIO FIRST.
    * http://sapphire-port-dream.googlecode.com/files/spl-signed.zip

    I flashed the radio first then spl-signed and last the ROM. Did everything by the schoolbook except i missed it's a G1 ROM (not for Hero) :eek:

    I can't access fastboot or recovery now..

    Oops! :(

    I have a feeling that, if you've flashed the SPL with an incompatible version, it may be irrecoverable.

    There's an unlocked SPL available for the Hero here which you may be able to install. Then you could try reflashing the latest radio and generic rooted ROM from here. With a bit of luck this might resurrect your handset. Otherwise all I can suggest is trying the latest HTC RUU update package, but I'm not sure if that will fix the SPL issue; I think it updates the radio though.

    What happens when you power on whilst holding the BACK button? Do you get to the bootloader menu?

    Exactly the samething as the youtube video. The phone starts you see the box with the arrow and mobile and then after a few seconds it shutdowns.

    I'm no expert but it doesn't sound hopeful. Sorry I can't be of more help. :(
