How to remove the battery cover on the HTC Hero

I struggled with the instructions, push with thumb just was not cutting it. This might be a little tough to pop the first few times.

What I had to do was this;

  • Place phone in face down in the palm of your left hand with the USB jack pointing towards you.
  • Place your right palm on the back side of the phone just above the USB jack.
  • Press your hands together and try to push the back away from the USB jack.

The first time it popped off with almost a click feel. Seems like it will get easier over time as well, once you know how to actually get the damn thing off. review…SCAM ALERT – look out.

Watch out for this one readers. has been advertised in several prominent media outlets( I just watched this on comedy central) as being able to fix any pc. My Clean PC’s software can “make a 7 year old computer amazingly fast, even faster than a new computer!”. This is just plain CRAP. Closer inspection reveals that this web site is owned by a company called Cyber Defender ( a known spyware company )

Do yourself a favor and stay far far away from this product or any product that makes such ridiculous claims. If you are experiencing a slow computer, download malwarebytes and super antispyware. Update them both and let them run…preferably in Safe Mode. Another good program worth mentioning is the most awesome MalwareBytes available here.

Be warned the WOT and McAfee both list and as severe threats.
