I'm beginning to feel HTC are doing a 'SonyEricsson' with regards to V2.1 for the Hero.
They should have just released v1.6 last year, but instead held back this update to jump to v2+.
Announced in 2009 & then all of Q1 2010 passes with still no update. Not impressive HTC - this is letting your reputation slip with lack of timely support & information!

Great phone, great options, great OS with absolutely no problem, but.......the camera......if you want to buy this phone, do so, but take the pics only on day light, because the autofocus is very bad on artificial light. Have it for over four months and i am really happy with this phone, i use for work and fun all day!

Sprint working on Android 2.1 for Hero, Moment
Sprint (NYSE: S) is readying an Android 2.1 firmware upgrade for the HTC Hero and Samsung Moment, according to a leaked screen shot sent to Sprint stores.
The screen shot had a lot of interesting information but was way too small to easily read, so I’ll give you the important parts. Sprint said it is “actively working on having the Android 2.1 platform available to our Hero and Moment customers over the coming weeks.” More information about the update is supposed to be coming in April, and Sprint calls these handsets “superior devices.”
The 2.1 fervor comes just a few days after Sprint announced it will support the Nexus One. Let’s just hope Sprint doesn’t pull a Verizon with its 2.1 upgrade because I’m still waiting for that firmware on my Droid.
COM, 17 Mar 2010The v 2.1 update will never come. They want you to buy a new HTC "smart"phone...thw 2.1 update will come on april, they are delaying the update on HTC HERO so that they can first release the new android phones.
to buy the new android phones (Legend and Desire)
I dont no much about android so please tell me someone how to update android 2.1 on my htc hero and where can i download thanks
The v 2.1 update will never come. They want you to buy a new HTC "smart"phone...
OSMAN, 12 Mar 2010how do i copy all my numbers from my nokia 5130 to my htc hero? from my back up on my pc in no... moreFirstly, syncnize you 5130 with 'microsoft outlook' not with nokia pc suite. And then syncnize htc hero with microsoft outlook via data cable. Enjoy!
does updating de Hero to 2.1 erase all de previously saved data n does it hv any adverse effects on de phone?
also, is updating de same as wht others cal "root"?
when wil v 2.1 come out? obviously, 2.1 wun come out officially until desire n legend r out in de market because from a business point of view, doing it tis way shud result in more sales of legend n desire, which both possess the v 2.1 eclair.

ever heard Advanced Task Killer Manager?
It shut down all unnecessary running program on your Hero, and makes it run faster and save battery.
you can download it FREE in the market in case you didn't know.
