    Well, I am living in Turkey and I bought my htc hero today. It has android version 1.5. I somehow managed to download the official RUU hero 2.73 that is ROM Upgrade for HTC Hero

    somehow: htc support wasn't accepting my S/N at first. And then I browsed others problems with "not suitable" error. Then stumbled to a S/N, that was told that it will work. And it worked! :)

    So, will any harm come to my hero if I install this?

    Funny, it seems that it will downgrade my image version from 2.73.468 to 2.73.405!

    Any tips?

    2.73 is the vertion the next three digits equate to carriers and regions so you have the same vertion of software.

    If it didn't accept your S/N then this update will most likely not work.
    Find out what carrier your phone is from, Orange, 3 or T-Mob and download the relevant RUU.

    Oh boy, you are kidding :) There is no Orange 3 or T-Mob or At&T here. Here is Turkey, remember?

    First of all you are having the latest official ROM installed in your phone (2.73.xxx.xx); and 1.5 is the latest Android version/build available for HTC HERO (officially).

    Your ROM version 2.73.468.xx is NOT the latest/updated one while comparing 2.73.405.5 (WWE)...; 468.xx represents either your region/country/carrier. In my case, my ROM version was 2.73.720.5 (India) and later I put the world wide edition (2.73.405.5) using GOLD CARD method.
    Are you trying to do the same? If that is the case then follow this procedure. How To: Downgrade Your HTC Hero So It Can Be Rooted | The Unlockr

    Sorry, I for some reason thought it was a imported one.
