    You would be much better looking at the guides and asking questions in the Samsung Galaxy 3 - All Things Root forum, as the process will be very different to that used for the HTC Hero.

    Hi folks,

    on my rooted Hero I've flashed Vanilla Eclair 6.2
    Silly me: I imediately flashed Google Apps too - but a version only for android 2.3

    Now I can't get to the market to install new apps.
    Therefore I can't install ROM-Manager to do a new flash.

    I can: phone, surf, wifi, mobile network, connect to pc via usb

    I don't have: market, ROM-Manager, file manager, Titanium Backup

    I can start fastboot, but I don't know much about it.
    When I choose "reset Device" it takes me back to VE6.

    Can anyone please tell me how I can get out of this nightmare ?

    How can I

    • go to the market ?
    • or install ROM-Manager ?
    • or get in the Recovery Mod
    • or flash another rom ?
    I'm feeling totally stuck :( I can't move forwards or backwards.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated !


    TIA

    I have downloaded and installed CG 2.2.4 zip as well as all the kernels etc. Only thing is, the phone (dialler) isn't working, I keep getting the message 'Could not launch requested activity'. I have read and reread everything I can find, but I have no idea how to resolve this. If there is a thread here that can help, please point me to it, or otherwise, walk me through. I might have done something wrong, I just have no idea what it is. Thank you.
