    if the device is not rooted or when you download a file it can get corrupt which usally results in what you have experianced.

    to install carrier roms and the stock htc roms you need to do it through htc sync

    to install custom roms u need to root your device

    if your hero is still on the standard 1.73 rom rooting will be easier but if its on a 2.73 rom you will need to create a gold card to downgrade the rom to enable you to root

    for rooting put the unlockr.com in google and go from there they have step by step guides on how to root the hero. i found the one click method the easiest.

    You are trying to apply a custom ROM to a non-rooted phone. You need to do ALOT more research before attempting anything like this, you could well end up breaking your phone permanantly if you are not careful. To be honest, I would just stick to offical updates if I were you, it's a risk free route, it's very easy and the benifits of rooting are negligable for the standard user.

    I hope you get it sorted, but...

    Why do people feel the need to take a perfectly good, working phone, **** around with firmware (usually with zero knowledge of what they're doing or even why they're doing it) and then wonder why they've turned it into a brick?

    Most of the 'problems' you read about on here are because users have pratted around with the firmware or apps which modify OS behaviour and then wonder why something is broken!

    I would just go onto the HTC website and follow the instructions on how to update to the 2.73 ROM for your device.
