    Hello,

    Would one of you kind experts please tell me the best way to go with rooting, based on the info below please? From a thread I read ages ago (that I can't find now), I seem to remember that the Hero on the 3 network has to be downgraded and something about a gold card. Is this correct? I just want to make sure I'm following the right instructions before I start! :)

    Firmware: 1.5
    Baseband: 63.18.55.06JU_6.35.08.29
    Kernel: 2.6.27-430d1aea
    htc-kernel@and18-2 #983
    Build No: 2.73.771.73 CL#94055 release keys
    Software version: 1.0.0.A6288

    Cheers,
    Jim

    Hi there. You are correct in saying that you must first downgrade your ROM in order to root your phone. This explains that method.

    However there are pre-rooted ROMS out there.. see here (that is if you want to stay on a 1.5 ROM). If not you will have to follow the goldcard method.

    So you could flash that, but first you need to follow steps 2-5 from here

    I say use my method first, then if that fails use the goldcard which is mentioned first.
