My friend decided to root his phone. He knew i was looking into rooting my droid when i get it, so he turned to me.
Hes got the HTC hero, for sprint. (also on a side note, a lot of other phones were called the hero, yet when we were looking for a rom, there was an explicit note saying that some were for the REAL hero, and others said for the hero, but really meant they were for other phones, like the G1... wtf?) and I tried my best to help him root it, but it was so complex. we had to get the android sdk, do some tricky cmd stuff, and after about 3 hours of continuous failures, we gave up.
Why would the hero be so complicated, when all ive heard you gotta do for the droid is put an update.zip in the root, and hit the recovery screen and boot off that?
