    My unlocked HTC hero did not come with market. I here that there is a work around for this. Does anyone know the method to install market manually?

    I can definitly put in on there with Custom Roms right? Anyone know where I can buy a Hero online that comes with the market already? And at a good price, thanks.

    Heros from Asian Country dont have the market installed out of the box, It happened to me recently, I returned it, It has nothing to do with legitimacy.

    I bought a Malaysian one from a parallel import shop here because you can't get them in NZ. Follow these instructions to the letter and you'll have yourself a shiny new Hero with rooted generic firmware and all the Android Market goodness you can handle.

    Try this. This particular fix involves flashing a modified ROM on the device. I think it will void your warranty so be careful.
