    You have flashed your GSM Hero with a Radio for CDMA Sprint Hero??????
    I am sorry that I have to say this, but your phone is already bricked. How is possible to do things without the need knowledge...Now the only solution is to buy a new one...

    No flashing a CDMA radio on a GSM phone will brick it. It can't even be fixed through ADB. You'll need to take it back to where you bought it and play ignorant. They will either need to replace the main-board or the entire phone.

    Man, your phone is dead! There isn't ANY way to fix this. One more time very sorry- this is definitely one of the crap moments, but... you had to read more before doing any things!
    Flashing the CDMA radio on GSM phone kills it's motherboard- so, it's hardware damage and cannot be fixed via software way in any case. The motherboard needs to be replaced= new phone in your case.
    One more time- very sorry!

    so guys...a lesson for a newbie (which is me)

    what did he do wrong here? flashing a gsm radio on a cdma? If I bricked my Blackberry, I was STILL able to reinstall the OS being able to start over....

    Flashed CDMA radio on GSM.
    In our Android OS that means only one- unrepairable phone, because it screw the baseband module up.

    Basically, unless you own a Sprint style CDMA Hero, avoid anything and everything to do with Sprint or CDMA. Our phones are GSM in stead.

    Hi there Guys, I have kind of the same issue here, but the thing is i installed an upgrade or something that phone itself asked me to install so i did, and now i'm stick un the HTC black startup screen, I don't even know how to reboot or try and reinstall this thing, can anyone point out where can i get started? I know it's a pain teaching a newbie but little by little you make of this earth we're leaving a better place :$ and me less ignorant.
    cheers lads
