Root Another boot loop thread...



HTC Hero has become poorly after lying in the sun for a while. It goes into a boot loop. It's not rooted. Obviously I can't get into the thing to mount it as a USB drive (although it does make a "USB discovery" noise when I put it into Fastboot USB mode, I can't see the drive...).

Now I've tried the method of extracting the from files with names like


and renaming as on the SD card and booting pressing the Volume Down button. In general they come up with the error "Main Version is Older!" and fail.

Eventually I came across this chap


and tried the same thing. This one fails with an error "CID Incorrect".

Help! Is there any way to save my phone??
