Borked my Hero
I was a total idiot and manage to make my Hero into a whats essentially an expensive brick.
I got root going by booting from insecure boot.img. Then after verifying that it worked, playing around a bit, rebooting, i continued, with the pursuit of installing cyanogenmod.
So I dled and fastbooted from cm-hero-recovery.img (cm 1.4 + jF) (#android told me later that i wanted i wanted 32A, which wasnt specified it this image, but it worked). Did a nandroid backup that i managed to delete just afterwards (Boy, that was phucking selfownage). From there I pushed cyanogenmod-update-4.0.1.zip over to the sdcard and upgraded the device. It finished successfully.
When rebooting the device only comes up with what #android calls the first boot screen, only HERO with no android coming up in the O (i miss that cute little android). logcat says - waiting for device -. For the record, ive never come beyond this point now. Ive let it boot for 6 hours, its not that i didnt wait long enough.
With help from alankila (thanks mate) at #android i used his nandroid backups from a factory reset to flash cache boot userdata system, all of them. Ive also wiped before that. Everything went successfully, but to no avail. It still wont boot further than that first boot image; HERO without an android in the O. Logcat: waiting for device.
After that ive tried using some of the leaked Hero rom's, other custom roms (both same as before, successfull install, fails at boot), recovery image 32A (didnt work), CM 32A (same as before).
My default recovery image says:
HERO CVT SHIP S-ON

I feel like I have tried everything except making a goldcard. Do anyone have an idea of what to do (other than return to seller and admit guilt)?
Thanks in advance,
