    Hey everyone i am fairly new at this stuff so please bare with me. I want to root my Sprint HTC Hero. I let a friend update my firmware to 2.1 and found out he used the 2.27.651.6 build version instead of 2.27.651.5 from my understanding the version that i have doesnt allow me to root my phone. So i some how have to change over to 2.27.651.5 Do i have to flash back to 1.5 and then to 2.27.651.5?? If so how is this done?? remember im new at this and dont want to brick my phone..

    Finally got this rooted. Took a while bc i had to turn my debugging off to install the new build and to install the new sync version and then turn it back on to root it. i didnt know all of this at first.
