So.. My HTC Hero GSM has some issues that need to be repaired. Touchscreen not working in the lower part of the screen, constant headset-icon, trackball not working good. So I've contacted my repair center and they told me to send it in. So I want to restore my phone to as close to original as possible to be on the safe side.
The problem is I can't use the official RUU_Hero_HTC_WWE_2.73.405.5_WWE_release_signed_NoDriver.exe(or any other version), without getting an error 155(apparently it has something to do with the rom not having correct filesize).
It doesn't matter what rom I'm currently using; Modaco, Villain, different kind of generics(from Pauls sticky post), but nothing affects the outcome.
I got a feeling it has to do with the recovery image I use(RA 1.6.2) or Hboot version(.0007), but I can't seem to flash a new one. Recovery flasher gives me "Backup FAILED: could not run command.", and since my HBOOT is .0007 I can't use remote command from fastboot to restore original.
1. Is it possible to downgrade HBoot from recovery mode? If so, does anyone have a update.zip I can use?
2. Could error 155 has something to do with the computer/OS im using?
3. Anyone has any other suggestions what I can try to restore?
HTC Hero GSM
Generic 2.73.405.38 (1.5)
Any help is greatly appreciated!
