    Question is, how to get it back running again? Winner gets a Thumbs Up! :)

    Indications: WIll not turn on, no charge light when plugged in, no lit screen, anything.

    What happened? I was excited about running the HTC Hero MoDaCo Custom 1.5 rom this morning.

    10/Mar 3.2 - MoDaCo Custom ROM for GSM Hero (now with online kitchen) - Android @ MoDaCo

    Near the bottom of the first thread it recommended that i "install the latest radio from my 'update zips' topic if you have not done so"

    So I did, got 63.18.55.06JU_6.35.09.26 this radio.

    Not quite sure what a radio even is, i went ahead and put the .zip file on my sd card, did a recovery reboot, formatted the drive of data, cache and then loaded that .zip file

    After it installed, saw it said needs reboot to finish installation, so i did. and Low! :eek: it hasnt been on since........

    I might be wrong, but I think its bricked. It looked like you flashed a rom and radio for the GSM Hero whereas our phones on Sprint are CDMA

    I think you may have a brick for a phone now...

    I am pretty sure you flashed a GSM hero radio

    Below are links to the latest known HTC Hero GSM Radio ROM's in signed update.zip format.
    Again, ONLY for GSM Hero's not CDMA

    Yup definitely bricked. Your fried the hardware, so you no longer have a software/firmware issue. Sorry, man.
