Rooting an Android phone opens its core functions that aren't available when you buy it. This allows you to install customer versions of Android (ROMs) or other abilities like saving apps to the SD card.
No. My wife had to run out and help a friend with an "issue" so I had our two sons and they are a hand full. I never got to get online last night and pull up the website. I'm going to try and do it tonight as long as I can keep my kids off me so long enough
Negative. I spent like almost four hours trying to sort thourgh all the material on the web about how to do the root I had to give up so I could go make lunch and when I tried to get back on the web my parents called and said they wanted to take us out to dinner. I can't pass up free food so I'm trying again tonight. Is there some kind of patch I have to download to my computer and then to the phone or how does it work?
I just rooted my Hero about a month ago...In my opinion the easiest way to do it is to go on youtube, type in "how to root your CDMA hero", and watch the video. They do a great job taking you through the process step by step. It only took me about a half hour to root it.
Most of the videos also give you a link to the XDA developers forum. From there you can load on the ROMS...let me know if your still having trouble and I can post the link to the video along with some step by step directions.
