Sprint Htc Hero - Go Back To Stock Radio Withoug Using Ruu?

Alright, so i have seen many users ask, and i understand that the ruu (either 1. 26 or 1. 56) will allow you to set the radio back to stock. What i want to know is, is there any way to reset the radio without having a chance of it bricking from the ruu reset. I have heard several people had their phone brick after attempting to use the ruu, and i don't want to risk it. Not that it is a problem if i do, i could just go into the sprint store and say, hey, it doesn't boot anymore. I have tried everything, what is wrong. But, i would rather play it safe and find an alternative method of trying to reset the radio.

Does anyone have some suggestions, or am i pretty much left and stuck with using the ruu if i need to go back?

Sprint Htc Hero - Can Stock Ringtones Be Removed

I'm using darchdroid v2. 8 and it comes preloaded with a crap load of ringtones that i will never ever use. Is it ok for me to go ahead and delete these? I know these are in /system/media/audio/ringtones but i'm not sure if it is ok to delete them? I tried to delete the ringtones from the rom before i flashed it but when flashing, it gave me an error that ringtones couldn't be found. I don't want to try and delete them and find out later that my phone can't reboot. Just want to ask before i even attempt to.

Sprint Htc Hero - Google Places Or Stock Browser Causing 100% Awake

I have been posting semi steadily about my 100% awake time. I've reset the phone twice now. The first time, my 8% awake time lasted one night before reverting to 100%. This most recent time, it lasted about 3 days around 8%. I've been trying to pay close attention to what apps i use to see if any of them are causing the 100% awake time, and as far as i can tell, the only difference last night (when my phone went back to 100% awake), and before (when it hovered between 8-12%) was extended use of the browser and google places. I had used both before in short uses (maybe 4-5 minutes at a time) and i was still running normal awake time, but last night i used them each for about 20-30 minutes. Since then, i'm at 100%.

Also, despite the upgrade and the hard resets, i found that i had to use the handcent workaround, but i don't see that as related here.

Sprint Htc Hero - How To Take Off Back Cover To Install Sd Card

Just got a sprint htc hero and also got a bigger microsd card. How do you take off the back cover to install the sd card? The htc site just says to hold the phone face down and to press "up" with thumb or finger (which i assume up means to slide towards the top?). I tried that many times and no dice. Any suggestions/tips on doing this? Thanks for the assistance and sorry for my stupidity on this

*I did run a few searches on this and there were no videos and the hit i received for this site was the diy disassembly thread but it didn't have any info

Htc Hero - Widgets Gone After Update / Get Them Back

I just downloaded the new system update for my hero and now my home screen has changed. My digital clock with alarm and current weather is gone, and on the other "pages", my text messages widget, weather forecast widget and favourite webpage widget are gone.

Does anyone know how to get them back?
I tried to add them with the + button and 'add widget', but these aren't there, i can only add an analog clock, which is quite small.

I'm really regretting the update right now, i want my usual settings back.

Edit: i turned my phone off and on and now i can add the widgets again, sorry for the post.

Rooting A Sprint Htc Hero

My friend has a sprint htc hero running android 1. 5, software version 1. 56. 651. 2. He just got the phone and wanted me to root it for him, but sadly, i can't find a "one stop shop" for how to downgrade this phone, get root access, upgrade the phone, and install a custom rom on it. I've heard that cyanogen won't work on heros, so i guess that could be out of the question (or can it work?). So basically, what i'm looking for is this:

1. How do i downgrade his software version?
2. How do i root it? (I'd prefer not to use adb, if at all possible)
3. Which rom should i put on his phone after i root it?

Sprint Htc Hero Upgrade Question

I'm still running off of the old 1. 5 os and wanted to know if anyone had upgraded thru sprint to the 2. 1 os and what they liked or didn't like about the new system and any problems that came up afterwards - if any. One of the things i hoped they changed was the limited phone contact entry. I'd like to be able to enter a home phone/cell/work phone number for a few of my entries like i could on my old palm centro - all one can do with the hero is enter a single phone number and im number to each contact.
