I have an old HTC Hero (GSM) with a very old VillainROM on it, I haven't touched the phone for years. I now wanted to update with this ICS ROM (or potentially another one), however, I was unsure where to start, e.g. update my bootloader or whatever.
I tried copying the linked ROMs zipfile to the SD card, booting into my loader, wipe everything, and then "Install from zip". However, that fails while verifying the zip package.
I then also tried the newest official CM7 nightly for the hero, and that didn't produce above verify error.
Should I update my bootloader or something, or is just the ROM I tried broken? (for other people in that thread it seems to work).
