    Hi there,

    • Model Number : HTC Hero
    • Firmware version : 1.5
    • Baseband version : 63.18.55.06JU_6.35.08.29
    • Kernel version : 2.6.27-8dd6deee; htc-kernel@and18-2 )
    • Build number : 1.79.482.3 146733 CL#49365 release-keys

    Thanks in advance

    You root it the same way you'd root any other firmware. In fact a lot of people who upgrade to the latest firmwares have to downgrade back to older ones like yours (newer firmwares are patched against rooting).

    So the guide at the top of this forum will do you fine :)

    So,
    It means that I can follow the way on the how to root thread, as same as the buld number 2.... ? I read on another forum I have to downgrade first, then follow the guide.

    Essentially, no matter what your actual firmware build no, there are only two situations to be in when it comes to rooting. If you have a unpatched firmware your phone will run the necessary apps to root and install custom ROMs. If your firmware is patched, these programs will be blocked and you have to downgrade to one of the unpatched firmwares.

    The easiest way to tell is to just try and root. If instantroot.apk and flashrec won't work on your phone, you will have to downgrade using a goldcard.
