    I have recently been trying to root my HTC hero, however I have come away empty handed three different times. My phone is allowing unknown source applications to be installed and the debugging option is also on. Upon some closer digging I found I was missing a file named dxdrm (my cousin rooted his phone 2 days before and suggested that might be the problem.) I don't know how big of a problem this is. And im wondering if I can obtain that file elsewhere. I've tried the unrevoked and z4root multiple times. Any suggestions or solutions?

    I got the .5 build. Tried the 1.6.2 beta 5 (also tried the two older versions) and my phone says 'no application on the phone supports this download.' Or something along those lines. As for the z4root the phone is simply not allowing me to install it.

    Make sure you flash the .5 build first then check about phone and make it says 2.27.651.5 then try the 1.6.1 APK for Universal Androot, and make sure your USB debugging is on, Menu/applications/development/USB Debugging

    Or try unrevoked, google it, download it, run it. This may only work on the 2......5 build

    In his first post I think he said he tried Unrevoked and did not work for him ;)

    If Z4root does not work, then you will have to flash the .5 build and then root from there, click HERE
