    Well i tried to root the phone but when i get to the reboot recovery stage it just shows the HTC screen on the phone and wont do anything from there and i have waited as long as 20 minutes but still on that screen. so i even tried removing the battery and then holding the down volume button and power button but it still just stays on that screen soo i dont know what to do now. I even tried the auto root and it had a ton of errors soo that didnt work.

    PLEASE HELP thank you

    did you use teh pre-kitchen or did you do it manually? did you follow teh steps in this guide? http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-sprint-hero/38911-guide-root-rom-faq-tutorial.html

    when I rooted I did it the manual way.. when I rooted a second time I followed the manual steps in this guide.. it was VERY painless.. and if you tell it to reboot recovery.. it does just that... it reboots into recovery.. no need to hold any buttons..

    if you look at the SD card.. do you see the recovery.img file listed? if not.. then it never flashed (Flashing can take a while)

    Yeah it is there but it doesnt seem to want to reboot into recovery mode. either from the cmd prompt or from trying it on the phone

    Are you following the guide word by word? Did you copy and paste the commands in ? Make sure you follow it step by step.

    Have you tried holding down the Home button while powering on? Or even try holding volume down AND the home button while it powers on. Should boot to a white screen with some colored options, then to a black screen with green text.

    I would suggest trying it again. This time download the 1.2.3 RA instead and try booting into recovery using that. Shouldn't matter, but worth a shot. Also, silly question, but you do have a Sprint CMDA Hero right?

    if you have service on sprint, you certainly don't have a GSM hero lol.

    Congrats. At this point I would say read over the tutorial again. There are some FAQ on what you can do once Rooted/ROM'd.

    My suggestion would be start by getting a feel for how you like Fresh 1.1. Then go from there.

    I had to do it this way also, it would not reboot into recovery mode from v1.5.2, no matter what method I tried. If you still want the v1.5.2 recovery ROM, I was able to flash it and reboot after putting Fresh 1.1 on my phone.
