[RESOLVED]Uggggh wasted half my day trying to root my Sprint Hero...

no you aren't screwed, you can root with 2.1 installed. you say you have the latest RUU, have you taken the OTA update to .6? I'm guessing so..

try downloading this RUU for 2.1 (second post in this thread) [GUIDE] How to Root Sprint 2.1 Release for CDMA Hero - xda-developers

and then revert just like you upgraded from 1.5 a few months back. from there you should be able to follow those instructions to gain root access.
