Description:
RegawMOD Hero Rooter provides easy rooting of the HTC CDMA Hero. Successful in rooting all builds up to 2.31.651.7
If you have any problems while rooting, reboot your phone completely and try again.

What it does:
  • Gains root shell on Heroc using rageagainstthecage
  • Installs SuperUser and su binary
  • Flashes Clockworkmod 3.0.0.5 recovery
  • Flashes my patched boot.img for 24/7 root in adb shell
  • Cleans up non-necessary files after run
  • Reboots to recovery and flashes S-OFF package by unrEVOked
Usage:
Unzip the .zip file to anywhere on your computer. Leave both "Hero Root.exe" and "AndroidLib.dll" in the folder together. Run the "Hero Root.exe" on your computer, then plug in your Hero. It will recognize that you plugged it in, and a big button the reads "ROOT ME" will appear. Press that button and watch as your phone is rooted in under 1 minute from start to finish.

Requirements:
HTC Drivers installed (installed with HTC Sync)
.NET 4.0 installed

Thumbs up
.NET Framework 4.0 Download page (Or use Windows Update as mentioned below)
HTC Sync Software First item on the page. (You can cancel install after it installs the USB Drivers)


edited my original post because it really didn't help anyone or do anything other than take up space.

Grab .net framework 4.0 off windows update. It'll be in the optional software section.

This is sweet, it's simple yet elegant. I was wondering if you could do something like this for your s-off method/nand unlock method?

I've tried to use this a couple times without any luck both with 2.27.651.6 as well as 2.31.651.7

My phone is recognized by the rooter but seems to lock up on ">Running Exploit"
I know I'm not supposed to remove my phone but after close to thirty minutes I figured I'd see what happens if I did. I get a pop-up informing I can remove my phone and the rooter springs to life telling me root was achieved and complete however it doesn't seem to be rooted. (No custom recovery or SU installed)

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate and have the USB drivers installed as well as .Net Framework 4.0.
