1. HTC hero not powering up - appears dead!

Hello all,
 I was experimenting  custom ROM on HTC Hero. Although the device has
 access, fastboot enabled it's bootloader file (spl) was not accepting
 "cm-recovery .." image for nandroid (cynogenmod latetest) during
 i.e throwing "remote not allowed" i.e. However I was able to download
 recovery image from flashrec app. After that I tried to use a
 (engineering spl) for HTC Hero through sdcard i.e changing it to In recovery mode (Home+power down key) I was able to
 install this bootloader into HTC hero.

 The real panic started here. Even though bootloader was meant for HTC
 Hero  it does not seem to boot  the device. When I press power key
nothing happens - the device appears dead i.e no display screen at
all. When I hold down MENU key and tap power button I see a green
light flashing though!

I tried all combination of keys but nothing worked for me so far!

I am not able to go to recovery mode so that I can put back the
 original bootloader to boot it properly.

 Please suggest if there is any way out or it is as good as replacing
 the NAND flash in the HW with a preloaded ROM!!

 Thanks in advance



2. Launching an external activity from a widget

I have written a widget that cycles through a series of movie poster
images with next/prev buttons.  This works.  There is another button
on the widget that needs to launch an external activity, sending it
the name of the shown movie.  The other activity is not in the same
namespace, package or eclipse project as the widget.  It is written by
another developer and its apk is installed on my emulator.

What code do I need to start up an external activity from a widget?  I
tried this in my handleButtonAction() method.

Intent intent = new Intent( Intent.ACTION_VIEW );
intent.setClassName( context, "com.poof.ExternalMovieApp" );
intent.putExtra("FILENAME", MOVIES[state.currentMovie].filename);

PendingIntent pendingIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity( context, 0,
    PendingIntent.FLAG_UPDATE_CURRENT );

remoteView.setOnClickPendingIntent(, pendingIntent );

I tried it with and without the action parameter in the intent
constructor.  Either way, nothing happens when I press the button.  Is
this code wrong?  Do I need to add the external activity to my
manifest (how?)?  Is there a better way to get the external activity's
class name than hard coding it like this?

Are there any online examples that do this sort of thing?  All of the
examples i've seen merely launch configuration apps that are in the
same package as the widget.
