I am struggling with rooting my Hero. I have followed the steps, but when I restart holding home and the pwoer button, it doesnt bring up and green writing. What I get is an image of a phone with a triangle above it with an exclamation mark in it. I have left it for 5-10 minutes but it does not seem to do anything after this.

Anyone know what I've done wrong?

This is the stock android recovery, try flashing the recovery image again using flashrec and note carefully any errors it gives you.

Ah thanks, I just realised myself I had missed step 6. I'll try it again now.

EDIT: Works now, thanks.

Back on page 1 I said that I would make a site with root guides for all phones.

That site is currently under development!
You can check out the progress on http://rootmydroid.co.uk

If you are interested in writing a howto then please PM me and I will add you as a contributor.
If you have any comments please post here! :lol:

Yes I had HTC Sync installed.
Anyways I used a computer which had windows XP on it and the error didn't pop out I think it is because of the driver problem on windows 7. Thank you for your help


Thanks so much for this guide!!

Unfortunately, I've had a similar issue during downgrading, whereby the (generic) RUU generates the 171 error ('USB disconnection').

I've tried with the following:
* USB debugging turned on & off
* Formatted SD card successfully
* Goldcard installed successfully
* HTC Sync installed & re-installed
* Hero drivers uninstalled & re-installed

I haven't tried on a different computer/OS because my other machines also have Win7, unfortunately. I'd rather not install XP on any machines.

Please, if anyone has any suggestions!

Hi
I am a new member here at MoDaCo
I just wanted to say that i tried this way to root my phone but it just wouldn't works when I try to install the RUU it gives me error 171. I googled it to find a solution but I didn't find one. Can anyone of you help? Thank you.


Ok im a noob so no one please slate my comment :-) but i had this problem and fixed it by installing these drivers as well as the adb ones that comes with the htc sync

Thanks for the advice. USB debugging is ticked but the error remains the same. Maybe I should retrace my steps and go over the goldcard procedure again? :)



This is exactly the same issue I'm having. I have 2.1 installed, so I need to downgrade. I have taken ALL the steps and followed them to the letter. However, it disconnects from the USB whenever I launch the RUU. I can see it happen, as the HTC Sync goes grey. It then gives the USB error.

Please help! We can't be the only two people in the world this is happening to!

Tried all ways. No luck.

Thanks
Jez

Hateus, I tried updating the drivers. They did update, but didn't help the situation. Thanks anyway.

As soon as I close the RUU, the PC reconnects with the phone again. :)
