Either way, here are apps that you can use to root the Hero:
Download one of the two apps and use it to root the phone. You will also need ROM Manager to install a custom recovery - get it in the market for free or the paid (not required) version for the extra's and to support the developer. Be sure to make a Nandroid backup once you have root access just in case you ever need to revert back.
Let me know if you have further questions.

You dont have a custom recovery installed. Download rom manager from the market and choose flash clockwork recovery. It will ask you to confirm the phone. Select the hero CDMA and install the rom. It will finish and may ask you to reboot.
When it reboots, power off. Wait a few seconds and hold home+power. It will load into recovery. Nandroid is located in the list if menu options. Let me know how it goes.
