How to so a hard reset on a htc hero


Please note that all data will be deleted from the HTC Hero as a result of this procedure. This process does NOT delete data stored on the microSD card. We recommend backing up all of your personal data before proceeding.
  1. Turn the power off. If your HTC Hero is frozen, pull the battery out and reinsert it
  2. Hold the Volume Down button
  3. Press and release the Power button
  4. You are now presented with a menu that allows for Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock
  5. Select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button
  6. Press and release the Power button
  7. Now simply confirm your decision: Volume Up for YES and Volume Down for NO
If you selected YES, all data including third-party applications will be deleted from the HTC Hero. Once the wipe is complete, the phone will reboot to its factory fresh state.

Your solution
==============================================

Setting up HTC Sync to recognize your phone

After installing, set up HTC Sync to recognize your phone.

1. From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings > Accounts & sync.

2. On the Connect to PC screen on your phone, tap HTC Sync and then tap Done. Your phone attempts to find HTC Sync on your computer. Wait for a few seconds for the process to finish.

3. If your phone displays a message indicating that it's unable to find HTC Sync, try disconnecting and reconnecting the USB cable, and then repeat step 2.

4. When the Phone Connection Wizard is displayed on your computer, click Next.
Enter the name you want for your phone, and then click Finish.

Check the HTC Sync icon at the bottom-right side of your computer screen. If it appears green in color, that means your phone has successfully connected with your computer and HTC Sync recognizes your phone

=========================================================

If still no go try this .

Unplug the phone from the PC, restart both the phone and the PC. When the PC is done booting, plug your phone in and see if the autorun box pops up.

===================================================

hi yasein, what version of windows is on your pc?

download these two files and extract both

Please make sure Activesync is enabled (green icon in systray)
and hit ENTER to start...

STEP 1/3......50.......75.....100.

The next step will load a patched bootloader (SPL) on your device
it will make your device temporary SuperCID (seclevel=0), and will
avoid modelID and signature checking when flashing NBH files.

Hit ENTER to continue...

STEP 2/3.....15......25....50....75......100.

Phone screen should now be blank and the activesync icon gray
if not, the loading procedure has failed and you'll have to repeat again.

If all was OK hit ENTER and the standard "PDA Phone ROM Update Utility"
window will start, allowing you to flash patched SPL on your device.

Hit CTRL+C to Cancel or ENTER to continue...

Follow the steps on the wizard to flash the patched SPL, when this
step completes your device will reboot.

STEP 3/3 - Launching RUU, please wait...

HTC phone in safe mode, can this be fixed


Hi, When you're done troubleshooting problems with your HTC Hero in Safe Mode,
you will need to go through steps to boot it regularly and remove it from Safe Mode.

To do so, turn off the phone. Then while its off, hold the Menu and Power until the phone boots. The Hero should then no longer be in Safe Mode

Start the phone and uninstall apps in safe mode

If your phone keeps restarting, or it starts up but does not display the Home screen, a recently installed application may be causing the issue.

When this happens, try starting up your phone in safe mode. In this mode, your phone does not run any third-party applications. Safe mode allows you to start up your phone successfully so you can uninstall any applications that you have recently installed or which may be stopping your phone from starting up correctly.

To start up your phone in safe mode, press the END CALL/POWER button and hold the MENU button until your phone restarts and displays the Home Screen. You will see "Safe mode" displayed at the bottom-left side of your phone screen. When your phone is in safe mode, follow the same steps in Removing installed apps to uninstall the third-party applications.

After you finish uninstalling the applications, restart your phone and check if the issue is resolved.

Hope it helped.

Thanks for using fixya....

Turn OFF your phone. Take your SD card out not to loose data, then press and hold the "Home", "End Call/Power" and "Back" buttons. The reset process will start after a few seconds. Wait for the phone to finish the reset process and then press "Menu".

HTC Hero GPS


try downloading GPS Essentials (free) from the market. It has a tab that shows how many satellites the phone is picking up. that usually is what determines the gps accuracy. also remember that the antenna is at the bottom of the phone. right where your hand holds it. This should not affect it but is good to know.
