rooting issues

Hey everybody, I hope I get an answer for this real soon. I just rooted my HTC hero today and I found out (after i did it) that erasing google talk will mess up the market app is this true and if so how to get it back or fix the market without it because I have a lot of apps that I need to re-download also can this be done without unrooting the phone cause it works a lot better rooted thank you.

Re: rooting issues

This would fall into the category of "if you root your phone, you may break your phone, and we can't help you".

That being said:

1) did you put a recovery image on the phone, or just root it?

2) If you put a recovery image on the phone, did you make a Nandroid backup?

Yes?  Restore from the recovery image and Nandroid backup.

No? You're stuck.

Download the 2.1 RUU from sprint.com/downloads and re-flash the phone to factory.  That may work.

I rooted my phone and I am still able to access and use the market app...

Re: rooting issues

Deleting google talk has been reported to break the market.  You haven't broke your phone. Option one would be flash a RUU and start over.  Option two would be to flash the newest sprint official ROM or another stable ROM (eg. Fresh 2.3 or Darchdroid v2.7).  I would go to a forum like xda-devs and search and read about rooting Heros and ROMs, before doing anything.  Good luck.

Re: rooting issues

also there is a thread on xda that shows what has been tested to be safe to remove. search "Apps that you can/can't remove" under the Hero forums
