This device is more like the HTC Droid Eris than the hero, we are stuck in the same situation, Paul it may be of help to review what we have tried on the eris at http://forum.xda-dev...splay.php?f=554 The "Locked" thread and the new root thread have all the information on what we have tried. It appears to do a check on the rom before booting it in oem-78 mode.

I modified the install-superboot-windows.bat and added oem to the fastboot command and the phone rebooted. But when I type su through terminal emulator I get permission denied.

Check if you can access the root folder, SU may not be installed yet.

Hi


I have an unbranded HTC Tattoo and I tried Paul's Superboot v 1.2 and the same thing happened to me: just hangs on during booting process and then when i made a reset I cannot do any operation thta normally requires superuser priviliges, so basically nothing changed in my phone.

:)

The Droid Eris folks seem to be stuck in the same place, any further research will probably help them too!

Good luck.

Not possible the rom image is signed and the devices check for this, we tried it on the eris.
