    Hi there

    I have a 3uk htc hero which had the 3 rom on it but I used the gold card method to load the 2.1 update for the generic hero. Using this method http://androidforums.com/htc-hero/112255-guide-beat-wait-2-1-branded-phones-uk.html

    I need to revert it back to the 3uk rom as the phone has developed a fault and I need to send it back to 3. Please can someone let me know how to do this or point me to a guide.

    Thanks in advance

    Download the most recent 3UK firmware from the HTC website and install it via the PC.

    You may need a goldcard to do this, I'm not sure. Just try it first before you make a goldcard though :) If you haven't messed with your sdcard since last time it will still be a goldcard anyway.

    Thanks. Yeah I think the sdcard was still a gold card so it worked fine. Back to 2.1 with 3uk now. The network seems to work a bit better with the official 2 firmware

    Cool :)

    The 3UK version probably comes with a radio file better suited to their network, hence the improved reception.

    Why are you trying to goldcard the phone?

    If your phone is running 2.1 right now, all the fun stuff can be done without goldcarding.
