    Okay, I got my HTC Hero yesterday. I want to upgrade to 2.1 But apparently it's not out yet, i also think it should help to run the new 3D Games.

    I'm getting a 8GB Card later on today and want to know how to ROOT my HTC Hero, if i need to to install 2.1.

    I heard this is the best ROM in this video YouTube - KaguDroid 1.2.1 the BEST 2.1 Hero ROM =D

    Please if someone could give me a guide on how to ROOT my HTC Hero and get that 2.1 ROM to work. But, will the ROM Take up memory on the card, or does it actually install on the device?

    Also, can i reverse this after i do it?

    And, is there anyway to get the Sense UI on this Rom as well?

    Please help :(

    There is a seperate sub-forum just on rooting your phone. I suggest you start by reading the info in there.

    If you are on the latest T-Mobile you'll need to find a guide for downgrading the firmware using a goldcard. But like these guys said, that's all in the rooting forum.

    It's so hard to create the Goldcard, is there not a way to do it using just the SD Card? Like, not using the phone? The drivers on my Comp are sorta messed up.
