Help Need Rooting CDMA Hero on Software 1.62.556.1
CDMA HTC Hero on Alaska DigiTel CDMA Network in Alaska
Firmware version: 1.5
Baseband version: 1.04.04.10.09
Kernel Version: 2.6.27-6bc66721 htc-kernel@and18-2 #958
Build Number: 1.62.556.1 CL112492 release-keys
Software Version: 1.62.556.1
I tried the Fresh Pre-Kitchen 0.2 by flipz but it failed. After searching through multiple forums it sounds like the asroot2 exploit is fixed in my software version. I saw the posting by gbhil titled "CDMA Hero Rooted" (I can't link since this is my first post) and tried to manually unlock using the asroot2 exploit but the process is immediately killed.
Right now I'm confused by all of the information out there. Can someone explain the process (if there is one) of rooting my phone or link me to the proper instructions?

Here are some additional notes I found during my quest:
Windows 7 x64 did not have the right driver for the Sprint RUU to work. I had to follow the guide from the link below
In addition to that guide, I had to use the following command:
adb shell reboot oem-78
This rebooted into a special RUU mode and Windows automatically installed a driver for "HTC Bootloader" under ADB. I updated the driver from the files available at the link above then rebooted my computer. Now it shows up as "My HTC" in the device manager.
NEW PROBLEM: The Sprint RUU fails with Error:BOOTLOADER VERSION ERROR. When I unplug the USB the phone goes to the screen showing the RUU mode and says: Main version is older! Update fail!
Is there any way to force the RUU even if the main version in the RUU is older than what's on the phone?
