    Why not try them all? Make sure you make a Nandroid backup immediately after getting root so you can always return back to that point in time if you need to.

    After that, flash away and see which one best fits your needs. Just make sure you flash Heroc ROMs only. Beezy has some good ROMs that you can try and more can be found @XDA which include AOSP ROMs and Ports.

    First make sure you have the rom.zip on your sdcard,then power off phone.Then hold home,hit power(while still holding home)till you get to recovery(black/green menu.Then scroll down to wipe.Wipe data,dalvik,and ext if you have one set up.Then re-flash the rom,reboot and hopefully everything is good to go.
    ***When you wipe you lose all your data.

    Follow the link in this post: http://forum.androidcentral.com/180598-post86.html

    It will give you instructions to root 2.1, including the newest 2.1 phone update which blocked the first 2.1 root method. Let us know if you have any questions.

    How to I revert to 1.5 with a mac?

    If you're rooted, flash the backup you were supposed to make, or flash a 1.5 ROM if you aren't, then you can't. You must root the 2.1 first, then flash a 1.5 ROM.

    yeah, sometimes the computers rename the file. try recovery-RA-heroc-v152.img you need to try to push it to the sd card again:
    ./adb push recovery-RA-heroc-v152.img /sdcard/

    if you get a trasnfer rate, then good, if not, make sure the recovery is in the tools folder of the sdk and push exactly what the name of it in there is.

    I am not rooted. Is there any other way to go back to 1.5 without being rooted or using a PC?

    My Sprint HTC Hero is firmware version 1.5 software version 1.56.651.2

    I used your directions and think I successfully rooted it.
    But now I'm lost.

    I wanted to be able to delete some factory apps and learn a few new tricks.

    I'm having 3 problems though.

    1. Hard to find info on web about how to do these things with a Mac.
    2. Getting harder to find info on doing things rooted prior to 2.1
    3. I'm starting to get errors trying to access the tools folder now.

    I've checked my directory and everything looks in place, but terminal says there is no such file or directory. Terminal is also denying me permissions.

    I can't delete these apps because terminal says the directory is bogus. & I can't upgrade to Android 2.1 because I can't any info on doing this with a rooted Sprint HTC Hero using a Mac.

    Do you have any suggestions or links that might help me learn & understand this better? I've only been at this stuff or 2 days now. I'm very noob and still learning.

    You need to mount the /system/ directory in order to remove sprint apps. You can't do it on terminal emulator, you have to do it from the computer.
    cd android-sdk-mac_86/tools/
    ./adb shell
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    cd /system/app/
    rm WHATEVER.apk

    If you had a custom rom, you would do this differently
    cd android-sdk-mac_86/tools
    ./adb remount
    ./adb shell
    cd /system/app
    rm WHATEVER.apk

    You can't do superuser functions, you need the superuser permissions app installed if you're going to do things from the terminal emulator.

    To install a custom 2.1 ROM, it doesn't matter what computer platform you are on... you don't even need a computer to do it. Just take the zip file of the ROM, place it in the main directory of your sd card, boot into recovery (either using computer ./adb reboot recovery, or by powering off the phone, holding the home button as you power the phone back on). follow the procedures on performing a nandroid backup, wiping the data/system restore and dalvik (ignore errors), then flash .zip from sd. You can do this from the phone by downloading the file to the sd card from whatever site you get the rom from, then using a file manager to relocate the file to the main directory of the sd card. The ROM has to be there, otherwise the recovery cannot find it and won't be able to flash the file.

    I'm having problems after connecting device (not mounting, just Charge Mode only), it finds it, but I can not do the push asroot2 command. I get the following:
    ts-macbook-pro:~ T$ cd /users/T/android-sdk-mac_86/tools
    ts-macbook-pro:tools T$ ./adb devices
    List of devices attached
    HT02BHF09501 device

    ts-macbook-pro:tools T$ ./adb push asroot2 /data/local/
    cannot stat 'asroot2': No such file or directory

    I already have the stock Sprint 2.1 installed, but it's not rooted. My 2.0 was rooted. Ideas? Thanks!
    Hi Guys,

    I am experiencing the same problem, 'asroot2': No such file or directory

    I have the stock 1.5 ROM on the Sprint HTC Hero. If you could point me in the right direction that'd be great.

    So I rooted my hero a while back. I was running 1.5 roms. but recently I upgraded to a 2.2 but it seems like my phone is no longer rooted.

    Did I lose my root permission when I upgraded the rom?

    Open the app drawer and see if the Super User (SU) app is there. If it is, then you still have root. If not, then grab it from the market.

    Another way to check is by downloading Terminal Emulator and type su. It should return "#" if you are rooted and a "$" if not. Hope this helps.
