    Hey I followed this guide ( How To Root your Telus HTC Hero | Bak 2 Basiks ) and went to steps 69 so I could have the 2.1 upgrade for my phone!

    But now im looking into customising it some more and I want to change the boot screen, but im abit confused (kinda bad considering this guide is fairly moron proof).

    I dont know but do I need a custom ROM to put my boot animations into my cell? I just need root access no? Can I have root without a custom ROM?

    I tried to do steps 70-86 but I get the Error "Backup Failed: Could not run command" is this because I didn't put a rom in with the other 2 files (yes in the root of the card) because I didnt want a custom rom.

    What can I do to retain my Stock 2.1 Firmware and have Root access?
