Had my HTC Hero (three UK) two weeks ago
Upgraded to RUU_Hero_H3G_UK_2.73.771.73_release_signed_NoDriver via the HTC web site
Then I read about rooting the phone and rooted the phone by going back to RUU_Hero_HTC_WWE_2.73.405.5_WWE_release_signed_NoDriver
However, I cannot get a custom rom on the phone.
I used upgrade.zip method had a triangle with a ! mark in it with icon of a phone
Error E:Cant open /cache/recovery/command ????
Then apply sdcard:update.zip
Installing from sdcard
Finding update package
Opening update package
Verifying update package
Error E: NO Signature (744 Files)
Tried to chmode 777 to cache and chown to root but recreates the directory every reboot of the phone ?
Tried the heroimg.zip method but no joy not even a Error How can i pack a custom rom with RUU??
Anybody with thoughts
After you rooted, did you flash the RA-recovery? You have to download it and then run a command in your terminal, I believe "flash_image recovery recovery-RA-heroc-v1.5.2.img" and then reboot into recovery mode. Once you've done this you should be able to flash the custom ROM.
If you've already done this and I'm wrong....I have no idea :P
