    After you root your hero can you get rid of the recovery.img, boot-patched, and unrevoked files on your sd card?

    Don't get rid of the recovery.img. That's the one that lets you boot into your recovery as far as I understand it. Everything else can go though.

    You can still ditch it once you've flashed it, I wouldn't though, probably only taking up like 150 kb anyways.

    your phone does not access your sdcard to boot :p it's just for storage.
    take your sdcard out and boot your phone, it'll still start up fine.

    once you've flashed all the necessary bits and got yourself rooted, you can indeed remove all those files from your sdcard without worry.

    Good to know. :) I did not realize that the recovery.img could come off as well. Though really, it's not taking up any major space.

    Does that mean I can also delete the fresh 2.3.3 zip file I have there too?
