I have an HTC Hero Android Version:2.3.3, i want to figure out if i can downgraded it to a previous version that the Hero can actually handle.

  • I don't know if my android is rooted, and not sure how to find out
  • I don't know if my phone is upgradable/downgradeable or not and
  • and I have no idea Where I can get a nice clean ROM for my phone

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

How did you get Android 2.3 on there if you don't know if its rooted? Chances are pretty good (if not 100%) that if you have Android 2.3 on there then its rooted. – Daniel May 13 '11 at 0:30
Some one installed it for me. Not sure how they went about it. So now that it is rooted can i install VillainROM 3.4 instead? – Maro May 13 '11 at 0:51
You might want to take a look at Where can I find stock or custom ROMs for my Android device? – Izzy Apr 6 '13 at 14:25

It's probably rooted. If not, then it was in order to install 2.3, and it can be rooted again. If you have the SuperUser app, that should be a clear indication that it's rooted.

You should definitely be able to downgrade.

The best source for ROMs is generally the Android Development subforum for a particular device on XDA. In this case, this subforum.
