    Root the HTC Hero (Sprint, Unrevoked Method)

    This tutorial is based on the Eris one we posted earlier. These devices are very similar.

    Original post is located here:


    This tutorial was written by djR3Z from XDAdevelopers.

    I first want to thank everyone at UnrEVOked for what they've done. I'm posting this because there aren't any really detailed instructions. Its an easy enough root, but I know I've been there before and even the simplest things can be tough if things aren't laid out. So here's a step by step tutorial.

    Due to some bugs, Unrevoked 3.2 was taken down shortly after being released, but the updated version is now LIVE! So obviously we're going to bring you a video tutorial on how to do it! Thanks to the guys at Unrevoked for giving us this simple solution to rooting the Droid Eris.



    EVERYONE: Unrevoked3. Download the version for your OS.
    WINDOWS USERS: unrEVOked modified USB driver

    ◄●How to Install HBOOT Drivers (Windows Users ONLY)●►

    If you're using Windows, you're going to have to install the HBOOT drivers first. You can follow this video tutorial:
    How to Install HBOOT Drivers

    and follow along with these written instructions provided by the Unrevoked team:
    Download the unrEVOked modified USB driver and expand it somewhere you will remember.
    Turn off your phone, then boot it into the HBOOT menu by holding power and volume down.
    On your phone, you will have to select HBOOT USB at that menu by pressing volume down four times, then power. Wait until the screen flashes through an “SD Checking” message before pressing buttons; otherwise, the phone will ignore keypresses.
    Connect the phone to your Windows machine with a USB cable and wait for the phone to say HBOOT USB PLUG on screen.
    Open Device Manager.
    Click Start, then right click on Computer, then click Properties, then click Device Manager.
    Under Other devices, you should now see the Android 1.0 device.
    Right click on Android 1.0 and click Update Driver Software:
    Click on Browse my computer for driver software.
    Click on Browse and select the Android USB Driver folder on on your computer, click ok, then click next.
    You should get a status bar indicating that the driver is installing. If you get any warnings, just click Ok.
    Your driver should install.
    Click Close and make sure Android Bootloader Interface is listed under Android Phone.

    Make sure you downloaded Unrevoked3 for your OS.
    If you're on Windows, make sure you "uninstall HTC Sync or any other program that might talk to the phone over USB (doubletwist, etc). They will cause problems" (
    Plug your phone into your computer with USB.
    Drag down from the notification bar on your phone and select "Charge Only" and "Remember this"
    Make sure your phone has USB Debugging turned on by going to Menu>>Settings>>Applications>>Development and checking USB debugging.
    Run the Reflash application that you downloaded.
    Unrevoked will run its processes. Follow the few instructions it gives and thats it!

    You're now rooted!
