    I have no idea what I'm needing to do now - do I need downgrade or root HBOOT?

    Unconfirmed as far as I'm aware.
    My bet is that it will happen and RIM will eventually release an Android handset.

    None as yet, theres so many ways of doing things, I'm downloading a RUU to downgrade before rooting.

    Do you have HTC Sync installed?

    EDIT: I thought you had a Legend...

    Yes. How does that even help anyway?

    Yeah I do, but I'm looking at different guides anyway...

    HTC Sync is required to install via RUU.

    Just to clarify: you are not trying to run a Hero RUU to update the Legend... Right?

    Oh thank ****. :p:

    I can't help you directly I'm afraid as I've only rooted the Hero and hacked the HD2. However have you considered making a thread at XDA?

    Also rooting HBOOT:http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=894465

    Can you not just enable USB debugging?
    You can also delete using Titanium Backup/Root Explorer/System App Remover from the Market.

    I have done, don't seem to work for me. Lemme try again...

    Titanium Backup couldn't grant SU access. (I have the SU app).
    Root Explorer/System App Remover aren't free.

    Edit:
    No I can't.

    You googled Blackdroid yet?

    (you really should have superuser access if you are running a custom ROM)

    Just did, not sure why so special though.

    I should, but I've managed to do what I've wanted, so I'm happy.
