I tried -Wipe SD:ext partition Then do: -Repair SD:ext but same problem, stuck at the Hero screen. I'm ready to flash my first rom since it seems like my phone has been rooted.

Can I flash with this rom? It says its for 32A but my phone says PVT 32B

If it still doesnt boot.

Follow the Below instructions to bring up to CyanogenMod Donut 1.6 Rooted.

PS: If your on AT&T 3G will NOT work.

Mount the USB with the SD Card installed via Recovery. A new PC Drive will show up in Windows

Download the Following

http://dx.infernix.net/DRC83_base_defanged.zip &
http://n0rp.chemlab.org/android/upda...9.1-signed.zip to root of SD CARD

Inside Recovery (Home+Power)

Wipe
Run Apply SD CARD CHOOSE ZIP
Selected DRC83_base_defanged.zip
Let that flash
When finished Write Update-cm-4.2.9.1.signed.zip
Let that finish then select reboot System now.

Once that is finished you will have a fresh system. No Hero anymore but the standard Android Donut rooted and CyanogenMod.

Detailed Directions

You will now install the actual OS of the phone. First you will install the legal Google apps, and then you will install CyanogenMod on top of those apps.

1.Turn your phone off.
2.Hold the Home button while booting to get to Recovery mode.
3.Select "wipe data/factory reset") (MT3G/Magic boots to andrOid then black screen with back-lite if you don't do this.)
4.Select "apply any zip from sd")
choose "DRC83_base_defanged.zip"
5.Press home to confirm and let installation complete ('Formatting Cache' will stay at the bottom of the screen but once the menu reappears, the flashing is complete)
6.STOP - DO NOT REBOOT YOUR PHONE
7.Again, select "apply any zip from sd")
choose "update-cm-4.2.x-signed.zip"
8.Press home to confirm and let installation complete
9.When this is complete, reboot your phone by pressing Home & Back or selecting that option.
10.Wait. This will take a couple of minutes. Be patient!

Rooted refers to you having "SU" Super User permissions and being able to flash any rom.

AT&T uses different 3G Frequncies: ATt 3G uses 850 and 1900 Mhz for 3G
T-Mo uses: 1700 Mhz & 2100 Mhz.

The MyTouch 3g Supports HSDPA/UMTS on 1700 Downlink and 2100 Uplink so they arent compatible.

I dont know if it will work on AT&T it might still be Carrier lock I'm not sure what happens to SIM lock once you root.

sorry, I misunderstood you. I thought you mean ATT wont work but you meant 3G. Yeah, unfortunately I'm stuck on edge.

I am flashing following the steps you mentioned, wish me luck and yeah I might need to get an unlock code for the phone after it resets.

If you are getting an question for the unlock code, your phone was not unlocked yet. Get that done. As for 3G, unless you have the 32A (Rogers), you will not get 3G with AT&T. You will still get Edge (usable). I have edge on my ion and rogers magic has 3G with att. ATT and T-Mo use different frequencies for 3G and mytouch do not come with the right radio for 3G to be used with AT&T
