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

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.

Ok thank you for the great feedback. That helped me find out right where the problem was in my code.

I need someone (anyone with a NON-Rooted Hero, and the sdk set up) to run this code for me, then attach the file named "HeroRoot.txt" it creates on your desktop to the thread here on xda.

Code:
adb start-server

then wait until it returns to the normal prompt, then enter:

Code:
adb shell mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system > "%userprofile%\Desktop\HeroRoot.txt"

I had to turn on USB Debugging to get it to try the mount command, otherwise it just said "error: Device not found"

But attached is the requested output.

Hope that helps.

    Hey guys,
    Sorry 'bout the long wait!! My contract on the sea was extended a few extra weeks... I'll be at my house tomorrow night, and will start on the new build of this. I'm surprised at how many downloads there have been! That's a good sign that people are getting a lot of use out of this. I will try hard to fix the Windows XP problem when I get back!

    Hey guys, I have a fully working new build of this rooter, built with my new .NET Android library I wrote, that now includes S-OFF. I am beta testing it with a few other selected testers that asked to test, then I will be posting it here.
