Where did you see that? on the Magic RA-Recovery thread?!
If you look at the first post of this thread, you should find the version for the Hero GSM (if you don't have the hero GSM please look elsewhere):
Also if you have a working recovery, it might be simpler to use the flashable update I prepared:
great we're already talking on the subject. I just bought a used htc hero gsm, which had already been rooted(at least looked like it, rom was 1.5 sense but it had the su permissions app and it had an old version of amon ra recovery, but no root apps worked). Anyway I started going through the motions, updating everything, so i flashed the latest radio (update-hero-radio-63.18.55.06JU_6.35.09.26-signed), then moved to this recovery. i flashed RA-hero-v18.104.22.168 by the first method in 1st post but it didnt boot into recovery after that. I was able to get into RA-hero-v22.214.171.124 via fastboot but then adb wont recognize the device. then I saw the line talking about 32A sapphires. in bootloader my device shows the following:
HERO CVT SHIP S-ON HBOOT-1.76.0004 (HERO10000) MICROP-010f TOUCH PANEL-SYN0104 RADIO-6.35.09.26
so i went for recovery-RA-hero-v1.6.2.img and flashed that with method2, and it worked. I dont know if my phones 32A or what, but for whatever its worth that flashrec program said it was 32A. I'm on CM6.1 now, and btw have plenty of reasonable experience with adb, recoveries, fastboot, flashing etc.
as far as i can see, and my search results here and elsewhere have shown, 126.96.36.199 should work on gsm heros. sapphire is obviously a different phone. so my question is, am i doing anything wrong?
