HTC Hero :: Going From VillainROM To Official 2.1

Jul 6, 2010

A while ago, I installed VillainROM in my HTC Hero because I wanted to try it out. Now I hear the official 2.1 has been released and since my phone is being a little buggy lately, I want to install the official one. "Off Course" I don't remember how I did it and don't know how to do the procedure.
1. Is there an official ROM for Belgium, I can download?
2. How do I do this (I know I did all the official steps while upgrading to VillainROM.

HTC Hero :: Upgrading From VillainROM 5.4 To 10?

Jun 9, 2010

I'm trying to upgrade from VillainROM 5.4 to 10 but not having too much joy. Do I follow the same procedure as I did when going from the stock Orange/HTC ROM to 5.4 or is it a bit more in-depth? I am unable to run the Amon RA recovery image software as it says "backup failed: could not run command". Titanium Backup isn't doing anything apart from giving me an "SU request" notice (even when I've tried to d/l Busybox).

HTC Hero :: VillainROM Updater Not Working

Jul 2, 2010

I've just upgraded to 2.1 with VillainRom. The included updater doesn't seem to work. Like the experimental batter fix update. I check for updates, choose the batter update, hit apply and it boots into recovery, does something for 10 seconds and restarts. After checking for updates again, it reappears. Has it installed right?

HTC Hero :: VillainROM 5 Final Build

Mar 29, 2010

New ROM over at XDA for those of you who haven't seen it. Just flashed it. It's a port from a CDMA Hero build, basically a final build apparently. Seems nice so far except for a dodgy skin ( will be available tonight apparently to revert to normal sense), and I can't seem to sync my facebook contacts.

HTC Hero :: Phone Not Boot (VillainROM 10.3)

Jun 30, 2010

I am having issues having my phone boot. I was trying to get the APPS2SD to work on the phone and partitioned the SD card. this caused all of my apps to be deleted, not a big deal so i took that as an opportunity to start fresh again. So I factory reset, wiped the cache and re-flashed Villian10.3. Now the phone will not boot. It goes to the "Hero" screen then to the white "HTC quietly brilliant" screen and stays there. It seems to cycle, i.e. the screen will flash off then back to the white screen. It will however boot into recovery. Now I've tried re-wiping and reflasing and nothing seems to work. When I was using the factory wipe, it gave an error about not being able to mount the EXT partition.

HTC Hero :: Application VillainROM Updater Is Not Responding?

Jul 1, 2010

After trying out another ROM which is VillainROM. I am getting this damn error each time my phone loads up, then it gives me a option to wait or close. This is why I always seem to regret trying out any villain ROMs. Always some errors that creep up & folks say they are stable. Is their a way to correct this? Maybe I should try sence build 5. Cause sence 2.2 was good but I wanted to try the new villain.

HTC Hero :: VillainROM To Stock - Nandroid Backup

Jun 29, 2010

I have a T-Mobile G2 Touch (HTC Hero) and I want to go back to the stock T-Mobile ROM, but I've been told that if I re-flash then it'll brick my phone? I'm running the latest version of VillainROM 10.3.2 and I found that I may need a Nandroid backup or something? If someone could possibly re-direct me to where I need to find a Nandroid recovery image for my phone, I'd be grateful! I used flashrec to make a back up of the recovery image or some sort? On my SD card is "recovery-backup.img"? I've been told I can install the official HTC stock ROM RUU running the exe then flashing the recovery-backup.img?

HTC Hero :: Stock Android Interface In VillainROM 12?

Jul 20, 2010

I have VillainROM 12 installed on my Hero and have been playing around with various themes from the standard Sense UI to things like dxtop. I do want to try out the stock Android UI which I believe is accomplished by just going into Applications>Manage Applications>HTC Sense and selecting clear defaults thus setting it to stock Android. Thing is that in my install of VillainROM 12 the "clear defaults" button is greyed out and unavailable to be pressed. Is this an intentional thing in VR12 or am I maybe going to have to re-flash in order to achieve this?

HTC Hero :: Linking Facebook Profile VillainROM 12

Jul 24, 2010

So yesterday after being utterly sick of waiting for Orange to release 2.1, I made the leap and rooted my phone. I found it fairly straight forward and played around with a few ROMs finally finding VillainROM 12 to suit me the best. Only problem I've encountered so far, I can't link Facebook profiles to my Google contacts at all.

When I'm in the People App, I go over the Sync screen, enter my Facebook username and password to enable it. Then when I go onto a contact, scroll to the Sync screen and press link profile, it says there are no matches and there are no Facebook profiles in the list to link it with. I just get the message "No Matches Found" in the list instead. I have tried logging out of Facebook for Sense and logging back in, but its to no avail. The list still stays empty. I had all my contacts linked back in 1.5 HTC Sense.

May 4, 2010

VillainROM 5.5 has just been released! It's available via OTA. The official thread is here:

Network location fix not working unless GPS was on during boot. This is now supposedly fixed. Other points of interest:Multi-Language (Keyboard Only). Gallery 3D 100% working. The following issues still exist:MMS Issue, (fix is available within the Villain forum).

HTC Hero :: Official Orange ROM

Apr 17, 2010

I've seen a few threads from people having issues with the latest orange rom ( but have yet to find anyone with the issue i'm having.

Basically, i keep getting an error message saying something like:

"this process has stopped unexpectedly"

giving the only option to force close. When it is force closed the same message pops up again. and again. and again. The only way to stop it is to either battle against the message and hope you can hit the power down button, or to pop the battery.

Sometimes it throws up other messages similar to the above one but for specific applications (ie sense, google talk..whatever..) but these never come alone, they always bring the original force close message.

Anyway, i've been onto orange and, tho i'm very pissed off, they have been good. they set me a replacement handset in less than 24 hrs (as they thought it might be a screen malfunction) which i was buzzing over until i got the same message! gutted. After talking to their tech support he suggested a hard reset followed by not adding any apps to the phone, so now i have a stock hero with stock apps and i'm waiting to see if i get a similar message...but in the mean time does anyone know of any possible conflicting applications? here is a list of the market apps i have used:

"Audio manager widget"
"Battery widget"
"Replica island"
"gStrings guitar tuner"
"Google sky map"
"Astro file manager"
"TV guide free uk"
"Free advanced task manager"

It seems weird to me that i had no issues what so ever before upgrading the rom.

HTC Hero :: HTC Official Black Pouch

Nov 22, 2009

JUst to let you guys know I received my HTC pouch the other day and it's the best thing I could have done. I used to have the gel case which was great but didn't protect the screen and I didn't want to quick a protector onto my phone. The beauty of the pouch is that is allows you to have the beautiful touch and feel of the phone but able to keep it well protected as well.

HTC Hero :: ROM Suitable For Rooting Over Official 2.1?

Oct 3, 2010

I currently have an official orange HTC Hero running on official 2.1. No problems, I actually like it a lot but browsing this sections of the forums, I've seen that people have taken advantage of rooting so. Are there any ROMs that you would pick over the official 2.1 that don't:
Eat battery life
Cause glitches(that are very noticeable)

And can:
be updated to directly from official 2.1

If you have any guides or info or links that are in English, I'd appreciate it if you could show them to me. But the most important thing is whether it's worth it.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Official 2.1 RUU - Name Unchanged

Jun 4, 2010

It looks like even though 2.1 was rooted for the Hero, Sprint has now made a patch. Not only is there an OTA update that breaks the root, but apparently Sprint is pulling a sneaky one. They went and updated the RUU on the download page, but did not change the name of it. The old RUU for 2.1 was version 2.27.651.5. When downloaded the new RUU from Sprint is 2.27.651.6, which root is patched.
