    Soo, the case is this:

    Both the microphone (others can't here what I say) and the speaker (I can't here what others say) have been experiencing some problems lately. I still have nearly

    If you make a backup via your recovery menu, you should be able to restore it later on (just copy the /sdcard/nandroid folder to your PC to keep it safe). I don't know if it would work if the handset was replaced though - I would backup all your data and such as well as doing the backup via recovery.

    If you install an official RUU (from HTC's website), that will put absolutely everything back to stock.

    Thanks! Do I need to unroot my phone before installing that RUU?

    Nope, installing the RUU will remove root.

    Thank you, BUT, I'm from Finland (Europe), and HTC's European website does not have a official RUU for my device. I also tried using google to find that RUU, but without success. So, what to do?

    The only thing I can suggest is using the most recent generic RUU from HTC, then accept the OTA updates to bring it to the official 2.1 update-1 level.

    So the one I need to download & install is the one that says only "ROM upgrade for htc hero" on this page: HTC Hero - Software Download ?

    That's the one! The download page insists that it's 2.73.405.5 but it's actually 2.73.405.66 - somebody forgot to update the page text!

    Warning: RUU updates factory-reset the handset, so ensure all vital data such as contacts etc is backed up before proceeding. The external memory card will be unaffected.

    Won't work. "USB CONNECTION ERROR", and asks me to check that the phone is connected to the usb cable, and that the cable is connected to the pc. Yes, they are, and I have USB storage "turned on", and usb debugging as well. What to do?

    Are you using the USB2.0 cable supplied with the handset? I've found some that not all cables are equal.... at least two of my many miniUSB ones won't work reliably with the Hero.

    Another thing to try, if not already doing so, is connecting to a port on the backplane of the motherboard rather than one on the case.

    Okay, I will try with the USB ports on the backplane of the motherboard instead of using the usb ports in the case. If they don't work either, what do I do then?

    And yes, I'm using the usb cable that came with the device.

    EDIT: I now checked the instructions on www.theunlockr.com , and I didn't have the htc sync installed on my laptop. Installed it, still not working.

    EDIT2: The problem seems to be, that the cyanogenmod cutom ROM does not have any "sync with your computer" or whatsoever setting. So, when opening the HTC sync application on my computer, it tells me that I have no device connected to the computer. Although I can see my device in My Computer under the removable disk catalog (this is as it should, in other words).
