I. Before You Begin

1. You MUST have done our How To Root (AndRoot) procedure, once done, you can return to this procedure to continue.

2. If this procedure does not work for you, head to our original How To Root procedures (click on How To at the top of the site, then Android, then HTC Hero/Sprint Hero).

Sprint Hero ROMs

2. Save the ROM to your computer.

3. Plug in your phone via USB cable and mount the sd card so we can transfer files to it.

4. Copy the ROM .zip file to the root of the sd card (NOT in any folders, just on the sd card itself)(do NOT extract the .zip file, leave it as a .zip).

5. Unplug the phone.

6. Turn off the phone and turn it back on by holding down Home and Power (keep holding both buttons until the recovery image pops up).

7. In the recovery menu, select Backup/Restore then select Nand Backup to backup your current setup.

  • It works on my GSM Hero… All good

    • Awesome thanks!

      • marcos

        still no luck with the commands on sprint hero

        • Marcos,

          Mind being more specific? Where did it fail? What is the error?

          • marcos

            Well i tried both methods of typing in the flash command and it tells me “permission denied” and “image not found” as well as “rm failed for /data/local/……… no such file or directory”

            I also tried copying the flash img file into my sd card (without it being in a folder) and i got the same results.

          • Marcos,

            Can you try something that might work and report back here on this post if it does?

            Go to the Market and search for BusyBox. Install the one by Stericcson and then open it and have it install busybox. Then start again with the steps to write in terminal. Let me know if that works, if not got one more thing for you to try.

          • marcos

            Installed BusyBox. Tried both methods and still got the same results in terminal.

  • I cant get the flash recovery to work, it says image not found

    • Means you didn’t put it on the sdcard in the proper place. Make sure its named recovery.img and it is not in any folders on the sdcard.

  • I followed this one on my sprint htc hero:
    http://theunlockr.com/2010/09/27/how-to-root-the-htc-hero-androot-method/
    it worked, i followed all the steps but when i open terminal and type in :
    su
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img

    it responded with:
    flash_image: not found

    i tried the reported issues fix:
    rm /data/local/rights/mid.txt
    ln -s /dev/mtd/mtd1 /data/local/rights/mid.txt
    didn’t work

      • busybox didnt work but rom manager did, i wasnt sure if i could use the flash clockwork recovery but it worked thanks so much

        • Rom manager worked for you?! What carrier is your phone on? GSM?

          • Sprint isnt that CDMA

          • Cool side Note********
            i also installed this on my girlfriends htc hero and had initially skipped the busybee part and i couldnt get rom manager to work, but after i installed busybee rom manger worked perfectly

  • Eric

    I cant get the key board to open on terminal

    Thanks ~Eric

  • Christian

    I’m having the same trouble with the flash_image: not found. I made sure that it was on the sd card and not in any folders. It has the correct name and all. I tried to do it both ways. The second way just says that no such directory exists.

    • Christian,

      • Christian

        BusyBox didn’t work but I tried the ROM Manager and flashed the recovery. Then I used ROM Manager to install the ROM from the SDCard. It works great and I’m glad I was patient with it. haha. Thank you very much for the tutorial and help.

  • I have it in the proper location and it is named recovery.img

    • after typing it in I get “flash_image : not found”

      • Kyle,

        • No luck via busybox, but I tried the rom manager way and that appears to have worked, thanks for all of the help!

  • Rob

    no luck with the original image not found issue nor with busybox. Any other thoughts?

    • Rob,

      Yup, download ROM Manager from the Market (free version) and open it and click Flash Recovery. See if it will flash it. Let me know either way, and we can try something else if no. Thanks for helping me update the procedure

      • Rob

        This was good. It allowed me to Flash the ClockworkMod Recovery

        • Rob

          I would also like to comment and say that after playing with ROM Manager for a bit it has made flashing the ROM much easier. Thanks!

        • Were you able to flash the recovery using the steps provided or did you use ROM manager to flash the recovery?

          • Rob

            I used ROM manager and flashed the recovery that way

  • marcos

    do i select the “flash clockworkmod recovery” selection or “Reboot into recovery”

  • Sean

    Hi there, i’ve rooted my HTC and it all seemed fine, so i moved onto the custom ROMs section. I’m at the stage where you enter the commands into the terminal emulator ( Better Terminal Emulator from the Market is the only one that would work for me) and I don’t get any error messages when i submit the commands which leads me to believe i entered it properly. But when i reboot the phone (holding the power and volume down key) I only get an option to Fastboot and Simlock. Any ideas what im doing wrong? Cheers

    • Sean,

      Where does it say to push Volume Down and Power. Its Home and Power 🙂

      • on my phone its volume down, home, and end call button,
        the home/ power button(end call button) asks you if you want to clear user data
        on sprint hero

  • Krishna

    works on my hero

  • will cersius

    I have a hero thru ACS Alaska dont know which that is Sprint or gsm. Help please

    • Take off the battery cover and see if you have a SIM card (not to be confused with you microsd memory card). If you have a SIM card, your are GSM.

  • Jonathan

    I get this
    Android system recovery
    1) triangle with exclamation point. (somehow i got passed it, but still what is it?)
    2) E: can’t open /cache/recovery/command
    I do however have these options
    -reboot system now
    -apply sdcard:update.zip
    -wipe data/factory reset
    -wipe cache partition

    • Means you didn’t flash the custom recovery. Download and install busybox by stericsson, open it and let it install, then download ROM manager, open it and click flash recovery.

  • Jonathan

    Once I flash clockworkmod can I then do the home button + power button to do the nand backup then install the Rom?

  • ESong

    Bad try….I followed every step you poested, it was all good untill i reboot the cell. after rebooting, it says ‘The process android.process.media has stopped unexpectedly. please try again.’, it also cannot launch HTC Sense.

    • ESong

      i just tried another method in another post of yours…and IT WORKED! Thank god, and great thanks to you.

    • Just reboot into recovery wipe data and reflash the ROM

  • Jonathan

    Was not successful. Once I did the Wipe Data/Factory Reset step it also formatted my SD card so when I tried to install the .zip file it wasn’t there? I also don’t have an option to Wipe Dalvik Cache after wiping the cache?

    • ESong

      Wipe Dalvik Cache option is in advance menu

  • Jonathan

    Sweet! Thanks Unlockr and ESong. 😀

  • Albert

    Hi,

    It’s doesn’t work, I have some kind of privilege problem, any idea?

  • Joe

    done everything in part 1 and 2, but when I do recovery it comes up with the image of a black phone with a red cross .. but Rom manager says the recovery image has flashed successfully.. is it possible to unflash the recovery image so I can try flashing it again?

  • Joe

    never mind, just flashed the alternative recovery instead, will try loading froydvillain tonight. I’ll post again to say the results.

  • Joe

    Alright, well, it worked 😀 had a few bumps along the way (mainly with the recovery image, but as I’ve already posted I just flashed the alternate recovery – ie. RA whatever it was). Just a bit of heads up if you’re doing this with HTC Hero GSM on Android 2.1 (not sure if it’s for all though): if you’re getting this issue where you get the red triangle & exclamation mark when trying to get into the recovery image OR you can’t get into the recovery image full stop (ie. it stays on the black “HERO” screen), flash the alternate ROM from RomManager (the one at the bottom). Restart RomManager and make sure it says RA Recovery v[numbers] AT THE TOP OF THE APP, UNDER “FLASH CLOCKWORKMOD RECOVERY”, NEXT TO “CURRENT RECOVERY:”. This will allow you to access the recovery image ONCE after EACH flash (ie. after flashing, you can access it until you restart the phone again – by restarting I mean full boot, because it’s something to do with Android 2.1, it like removes recovery images if one’s there at start up). So basically what I’m saying is: until you have installed a ROM, flash the RA Recovery every time you boot, otherwise you will just get the red triangle and exclamation mark when trying to get into the recovery image a second+ time. After you install a ROM, because it’s not Android 2.1 anymore, the recovery image will stay there even after full boots.
    Hope this helps (: e-mail me if you have any questions: justjoee17@googlemail.com

  • Mr Unlocker…i did everything as you said…but the gsm hero does not turns on.it stock.
    HEEEEELLLLLPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Tracy

    The phone reboots and then just sticks at Villain Rom – We HTC – Loading splash screen??

    Help please

  • ExaM

    Hi

    I rooted my GSM Hero 1.5 successfully
    Now i would like to know if a higher android version is included in the ROMs?
    Or do I have to update it a other way?

    • Joe

      @ExaM
      Firstly, congrats on rooting, secondly, yes, ROMs do have higher versions of Android. for example, I was using stock Android 2.1 Hero, after rooting and flashing the FroydVillain ROM I’m on Android 2.2 (:
      There are ROMs out there on both Android 2.1and 2.2, not too sure about 1.5 and 1.6 though. But the 2.1 vs 2.2 choice is down to personal preference.
      If you have any more questions or this was unclear, just email me at justjoee17@googlemail.com
      🙂

  • im on the last vilainROM version and its working perfectly. very smooth. the music apps fail but i guess ill boost the cpu like vilain says and its all good. thx alot theunlockr !!! keep up the good work.

  • savvar

    after rooting i press home+power and phone stacks on first splash screen

    any help?

    • BroRo

      Mine does the same. Everything worked fine, and when I try to reboot in recovery mode, it just freezes at the HTC 1st splash screen. HELP!

  • Jeff

    US HTC Hero CDMA (Sprint) Did everything listed above. All seemed to work. Got to step 6 – reboot with power&home – and my phone is stuck/frozen on the White “hTc” boot screen. Please help!?!

    • Jeff

      Well, gave it 5 minutes to boot at the HTC screen, clearly stuck. Finally, pushed and pulled battery and at least the thing boots – isn’t bricked. So, marching forward?!

      • Jeff

        If anyone reads this, for the Sprint HTC Hero, Step II-4, “The Flash Recovery at the top” option from ROM Manager. This is what kept “white screening” my phone (wouldn’t go past the HTC logo screen trying to boot into recovery console.)

        FIX: I finally scrolled way down to “Flash Alternate Recovery – RA Recover v1.6.2.” After doing this, I can boot into the recovery console and everything was good after that. I’d suggest adding that as a Option or Note in the procedure as I see several folks have had the same issue.

        Does anyone know, specific to the HTC Hero, after doing a custom ROM, do you still need to disable OTA updates? I saw this specifically in someone else’s procedure and wondered if OTA updates could mess up my Froyo ROM? Just curious

  • Josh

    i followed all the steps and it worked great but now i lost all my phone contacts. anyway i can get them back? or am i fucked?

    • They’ll come back once you put your google account info in and wait for it to sync.

  • Maylin Guinto

    can’t find ROM Manager on Market (with HTC wildfire)?

  • Gustaf

    I’m now on the last step of the Rom manager, trying to make a custom recovery flash. But when clicking the Flash ClockworkMod Recovery I get an error message saying “An error occured while flashing your recovery”.

    It also says “You must have the ClockworkMod Recovery installed to flash and restore ROMs!” beneath the Flash-button, however when browsing through the market I cannot find such a thing and it sure doesn’t say anything about in the description on this site. Anyone got any idea what to do?

    • joe savage

      you need to get rom manger and at the top there is a section that says clockworkmod recovery. click it… wait for it to download and install then try to flash the rom again 🙂

  • Snmahdi

  • Subinjoseph87

    Well this is what i tried.

    I installed Busy Box and Rom Manager.
    Did what was required in the ROM Manager.
    Downloaded Modaco 2.9 and put it on the sdcard
    Went to ROM Manager and from there, initiated ROM installation
    ….
    The process went on which was showing a command prompt, similar to MSDOS…

    2) Later it was showing HERO with the android playing around it.
    Then a glossy HTC logo.
    ..
    The step 2 kept looping again for 30 minutes.
    I was out of patience and pulled out the battery and booted the phone..
    NOW its only the White Splash screen.

    PLease Help, Mr. Unlockr !!!

  • First, can I ask why you didn’t follow the instructions? 🙂
    Second, that happens some times, just take out the battery and put it back in, then get the phone into recovery mode (home and power to turn it on) and then do Wipe Data / Factory Reset then reflash the ROM.

    You MUST wipe before loading a new ROM (you would have done that if you didn’t decide to skip steps lol)

    Good luck!

  • Sajjad Shafi74

    Hi, I followed all the steps carefully..I think. But when I reached step III.6 I am not getting the recovery image. Instead, I just get black screen with HTC logo on it. I kept the home and power on buttons pressed for around 5 minutes and tried the same several times with no luck. The steps prior to that went well including flashing the custom recovery image. Please advise..thanks in advance

  • Do this instead of rebooting to get to recovery mode.

    Open ROM manager and click Reboot Recovery and see if that works.

  • V Aadi

    Hello every one I am new here…. Will this process work on my Telus hero..?? It is unlocked form AIRTEL(India) service.

    Baseband Verson: 63.18.55.06EU_6.35.06.18
    Kernel version: 2.6.27-8dd6deee htc-kernel@18-2.
    Build Number: 2.73.720.5 146733 CL#61267 release keys
    Software version: 1.0.A6288

    Now I am using BSNL(3G) sim in the phone. But in the wireless controls-> Mobile network settings it is not showing 3G network option. But only 2G.

  • One, you have to root your Hero first then you can use this procedure to load custom ROMs.
    I think you think that that will give you 3G, but there is truthfully nothing you can do about the 3G. The carrier the phone was meant for probably has different 3G frequencies than the carrier you are using it on and therefore the phone can’t see the 3G network. There is NO way to fix that besides buying a new phone that has the 3G frequencies you need built in. It is a hardware limitation, not software.

  • hey im having problems with my hero when i enter or try to enter the system recovey a big exclamation marker comes out

  • That’s recovery. You need to redo the rooting procedure.

  • Tom

    Hello
    Having a problem here. Glad if you could advise.
    I cannot find “ROM Manager” or “nandroid” app on the market. Went through Appbrain but link to market on my phone does not return anything. I downloaded the apk from the programmer’s website, when i try to install it, it fails with following message “ROM Manager could not be installed on this phone”.

    Phone details:
    HTC Hero GSM
    Firmware 1.5
    Baseband 64.18.55.06EU_6.35.06.18

    Thanks
    Tom

    • Nandroid isn’t an app so that’s why you couldn’t find that. Rom manager is there though, search again.

      • Tom

        Nope market returns 8 results for “ROM manager”, none of them is the one.
        Via appbrain, the rom manager is there first in search results, but when click on link to market, result is “there is no matches in android market for the search: pname: com.koushikdutta.rommanager”.
        Have an idea where the problem is?

        • Pcooper20

          Same exact problem, we know how to search bitch its out the market and the phone will not install when Rom Manager is found by an outside source. Is there another program just as good as Rom Manager

      Rooted HTC Sprint Hero

  • Adee Feinstein

    Greetings! First and foremost, many thanks for your efforts and for sharing with others! I have rooted my Sprint Hero, installed BusyBox and Rom Manager. When I take the next step “Flash Clockwork Recovery” I do not get a phone type selection, and no recovery is flashed. I have re-rooted, reinstalled both BusyBox and Rom Manager, but get the same result. Any ideas? Thanks!

    • Adee Feinstein

      So I was able to resolve the problem last week by upgrading ROM Manager, which suddenly kicked into gear and generated a recovery. I thank The Unlockr for providing all this information, and I hope that others might get answers in the future. Happy New Year!

    • Ehtisham Rashid

      download Z4 Root. Thats the soulution.

  • RyneHUFF

    I went through all of the steps listed. And when I reboot nothing has changed. Not a thing… I have tried 5-6 different ROMs to see if it was just a bad download. Nothing

    Now I am wondering, when I download a ROM my Mac unzips the files. But I recompress them before putting them into the SD card. Any pointers?

    • thaiger

      i had the same problem. MAKE SURE you open Busy Box and INSTALL IT FROM THE PROGRAM. it doesn’t install itself like most apps from the market. im dropping FROYO onto me hero now and its going great so far. but double check your busy box is installed from inside the app itself

  • Loskaster

    i was pressing home and red buttons until phone has showed me phone and triangle signatures ?

    Cannot get this to work on a Sprint Hero! I have it rooted and have busybox and rom manager installed but when I try to Flash a Custom Recovery Image, I don’t think it is doing anything, the bar at the top says ROM Manager v2.0.2.6 and it shows that it is doing something but it only takes a few seconds and when I try to do anything else I get an error that says “you must have ClockworkMod Recovery installed before continuing! Install the recovery through ROM Manager first.” and I can click install or cancel. Install does the same as explained above. Please help.

  • Craig

    Your tutorials are great! However, when I downloaded the ROM that I wanted (Red Dawn) first of all, I wasn’t sure if I actually downloaded the ROM correctly from the website. Which link do I click on? Secondly, is “mounting” the phone’s sd card simply selecting “disk drive” on the phone instead of the “charge only” mode? Finally, when I rebooted the phone and followed the steps one by one, Red Dawn is not on my phone as a ROM. Do I need to do something else or did I do something wrong?
    PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    I have been trying to flash a custom ROM on my phone for several weeks. I have rooted my phone from your instructions of the one click method (thanks btw, i would have never got this far if it wasnt for your instructions). My problem is, i have tried downloading ROM manager numerous times but it always gives me an installation error. I have even tried downloading ROM manager off of the internet, saving it to my sdcard, and installing it from my sdcard, and it says that it can’t be installed on my phone. HELP PLEASE!!! I have made sure my phone is rooted several times through busybox and it continues to say it is rooted, so I need your intelligence at this point, mine is wearing very thin about this kind of stuff lol THanks again for the info though, I have practically lived on your website for hours on end learning new things about my phone! 🙂

    hey guys my wifi/interwebs were fine before I flashed to this rom today but when I sign into google it says “can’t establish a reliable date connection to the server”. My settings are as follows:: data enabled(check), data roaming(check), system select(automatic) any help would be great

    I go through all the steps and everything is good until I try to install the ROM. It keeps saying Installation aborted.

    there is an easier way i have found as well. from rom manager go to load rom from sd card, when prompter check the two boxes (backup current and wipe data/cache) then press ok to let rom manager open recovery and it will take it from there. it will open recovery, backup and wipe everything then install the rom/mod for you

  • Hey unlockr, I have rooted my phone twice now (once the old way using goldcard and now I have done it using universal Androot) and my friend told me to install Rom Manager and then install the Rom from there. It no doubt failed but I can’t install busybox due to lack of space (I have at least 13mb of space on my phone yet it says i have less than 40kb…) I was wondering if there was a fix for this?

    Also when I have rebooted my phone in recovery it loads an image of a phone with an exclamation mark in a triangle if that helps. It hasn’t worked for either micro sd cards I have used (one goldcard and the other not goldcard)

    i was getting the same problem aswell but really all you need to do is get a custom recovery image!!

    hi, on my htc hero, it comes up on the android market that ROM manager is not compatible for my phone, why is that??

  • ROM Manager has been pulled.  The current version is 2.2+ only.  Is there a way to flash the recovery image on the CDMA Hero (S-ON) without ROM Manager?

  • Matthew

    Hi there,

    I’ve already rooted my htc hero GSM but when i go to market and try to download ROM Manager, it doesn’t appear?
    I only see the premium version. I looked it up on de google market in my browser (windows) and it still exist but it is not supported for the htc hero.

    Is there an alternitive for this app?
