    LOL, I was going to get you the apk

    FYI whenever you use one of these apps, make sure you get a copy of the apk, this way you can save that on your SD card and a back up on your PC and if they ever take it out of the market you can always install it back anytime.
    ;)

    I used ClockWorkMode to back up my original ROM


    Sweet, I gotta back up this app. It's really handy for my Hero!


    I'm not sure where to get, but if i'm not mistaken, that only works on Windows computer and Im a mac user

    Wow! Z4Root disappeared from the Android Market the day AFTER I finally rooted my Sprint HTC Hero. Talk about good timing. I usually have horrible timing. :D

    I should save a copy of the .apk just in case I need it again in the future. Thanks for the link! :)

    For what it is worth, I found it here too: Download z4root.1.3.0.apk .

    Sorry for the double post. I should have edited my last one.

    (soo... where do you place the .apk to use it? or does something trickier need to happen for installation? I'd like to use it to root build "2.32.651.2 CL282911 release-keys".)

    You can throw it on the root of your microSD card. That basically means just copy it to your microSD card without putting it into any folders.

    There are a bunch of .apk installer apps on the Android Market. I just use EStrongs File Explorer to find the .apk file and install.

    I beat you by one minute, MahaloCat. But, nice try anyway. ;)

    Thanks! Indeed, I already had the power.

    Linda Manager did the trick.

    whether or not it works with build is a different story, we shall see...


    EDIT: Worked like a charm. Well actually it seemed to hang when z4 was 'Rebooting...', gave it 10mins. I clicked to home (things were real laggy at this point). Restarted phone, ran z4 again, prompt asked for permission to give z4 root access, and now the SU icon is in the drawer. First root!
    and so It begins...

    No problem, Paully. We are here to help if you need any other information.

    Hey, I used to use Linda File Manager too. It was a nice and lightweight file manager.
