    I'm assuming that you had previously rooted the handset? As you've found out, updating it has removed the root access, plus overwritten your recovery with the stock version. However that shouldn't prevent the handset actually booting and functioning normally. How long did you wait at the "HTC Hero" screen? After a major update the initial boot process can take a few minutes.

    You'll have to re-root and reflash the recovery once it's up and running.
