All is not lost though!
You can use flashrec to flash the patched recovery, from where you can do all the usual stuff (and even put the old hboot back on if you want!)
Handy! Thanks Magnus for the heads up...

how can I use this app? I did install the program but it's so complicate and no explain how
Edit: Found solution and flash back cm-hero-recovery.img
I know this is probably blaringly obvious and has been addressed before but I only just heard of flashing like today. I want to put "update-hero-generic-2.73.405.5-rooted-signed.zip" on my htc her orange UK phone. Do i need to rename the file to update.zip? Also all these files, are they basically just images for the phone?

I'm new to the flashing on hero aswell, but I just successfully upgraded mine a few hours ago with the enhanced version of the firmware (it was already updated to the stock 2.73.405.5..).
The filename doesn't matter since you can choose either update.zip, og any zip on the sdcard. Just leave the name as is, the recovery menu can handle both.
The path for installing the recovery firmware in fastrec is "/sdcard/cm-hero-recovery.img", not "sd/cm-hero-recovery.img".
I used linux and the latest precompiled 32bit sdk, on a 64bit ubuntu.
(Those files are images for the phone, I went with the enhanced version which works great also. The recovery menu will handle all installation, however I made a backup before applying the new firmware. Just use the "backup ..." in the menu.)
CHEERS! I can't believe how painless the process is! its wicked. I did it at work coz I was a bit bored. The new ROM worked really well. I didn't try the radio version though. Wot exactly does that do? There was an earlier post saying that it frakked up their phone but apparently its coz it was the magic as opposed to the hero.
Cheers for everything tho!

Please help me. I flashed and then tried to install the update and now my phone just boot loops over and over. I cannot get it to boot back up.

I second this - I just updated to the t-mobile update and then tried to root using flashrec and it no workee or I am an idiot
I updated my T-Mobile G2 Touch with the RUU that was posted up on the T-Mobile UK Website yesterday evening... I did a nandroid back up thinking that if I didn't like the ROM I would revert to your MODACO 2.2 version. Having noticed that the phone got completed wiped by the new ROM. I did steps to RE-ROOT the phone using flash rec + Cyanogen 1.4 .... The "Flash recover image" remianed greyed out... I have been looking everywhere for some step by step instructions on how to RE-Root the phone and get the custom Roms MD 2.2 back on but with no luck....
Is there a way to do this.... ?
Some help from the Forum members and "savvys" would be much appreciated.
Many thanks for all your help and advice everyone.
