If you thought Modaco is done with the Hero ROM updates, then check again. He now has something new in the works called as MoDaCo Custom ROM 3.1 Kitchen for Hero.
Hero Kitchen will allow users to bake (create) their own ROM with the choice of applications they want in it. This would be easier for thsoe who want their ROM to be light and won’t have to use tools to free up space.
A2SD2 aka Apps2SD2 is an addon/tool for Android phones that allow you to install apps in your SD card. Unfortunately, by default there is no option in HTC Hero and (probably) other Android phones to install apps in your SD card.
The apps you install are stored in your phone memory and once it gets full, you can’t install any more applications.
Just today I did a tutorial on how you can root your HTC Hero and install the latest Amon Ra Recovery Image.
Now if you’re looking for installing and loading a new custom ROM i.e MoDaCO 2.9 or later, on your HTC Hero, I’d recommend you carefully follow the tutorial below.

I followed various tutorials and articles on the Internet about rooting HTC Hero which is on stock firmware 2.73.x.x and decided to write my own step-by-step tutorial.
