I have a question though...

The update had a bunch of new files that's for sure, but it also lots of "patches", which needs the original files. Does this ROM also uses those patches or what?

Hey guys, I'm new here.

Does "rooted" also mean that we'll be able to flash further custom roms?

Thats why I said less work for me lol. The patching system is fully dumped with md5sums based on the original and part 1 update. So to get this fully patched we would need to add our own md5sums to the patcher list and then flash it over. :)

Currently andrewb84uk is flashing this and is going to tar the /system with busybox for us.

Hopefully...

If anyone else wants to then here's a howto: (ONLY IF YOU ARE PREPARED NOT TO HAVE ROOT EVER AGAIN!

0) If you need to, unroot using an RUU then flash part 1 & part 2
1) Install Android SDK or simply adb
2) Download busybox for Android
3) Launch Windows console (cmd) and go to the directory where busybox is with the "cd path/to/the/file" command.
4) "adb devices" <- Is your device detected ? If not, install HTC Sync // Of course, before you have to plug your device in... (Sync mode I guess)
5) "adb push busybox /data/local/busybox
6) "adb shell"
7) "cd /sdcard/"
8) "chmod 755 /data/local/busybox" (something like that)
9) "/data/local/busybox tar cvf dump.tar /system"
10) When it's finished, you will have a normal error like 'tar: error exit delayed from previous errors'.

If I can't find a way around root once I have done it I will just break it somehow and say the flash failed instore to get a replacement! ;)

OK here goes;

Part 1 - Reinstalling RUU_Hero_HTC_WWE_2.73.405.5_WWE (Done)
Part 2 - Get Update 1
Part 3 - Get Update 2
Part 4 - Busybox IT
Part 5 - Upload /system (Complete!)

The radio image

I flashed the radio image in the first post onto my Orange UK Hero and it locked it. It can be undone by reflashing the previous image but you should out this in the post.

Keep watching this post.
Top way to break it:
Reinstall the OTA & Pull battery during radio flash & say it failed :)

I will make the tar into a rooted update.zip in the morning.

Good Luck :)
