    It fails to connect to Market. Noticed that under Settings/About phone/Phone identity all fields, except Current username, are set to unknown.

    Wondering if anyone else is using Hero200 on only wifi, without Sprint service.

    Others Are And YES it should Work - You may need to Root and put a custom ROM on there....

    You could try Going to Market - Wiping Data and then re Launching...it may (hopefully as you for a username and password)

    Or do a factory Reset....All of the above should work.

    I have downloaded z4Root v1.3.0 from xda-developers site. Hope this version works on 2.1.

    I'll try your methods in a few weeks. Thanks.

    I've been using my old Hero this way for a few months now and I think the market problem is new. Maybe I just need to hard reset it and change to a new gmail account.

    I've been using my Evo like this for a few months now. There shouldn't be a problem with accessing the market on a stock Hero through WiFi. Hard reset and sign in to google -- it should work.
