It is my last HTC phone also; they don’t communicate to us what is happening with their upgrade. We are not children; we pay a lot of money to buy these phones. You go to local HTC distributor they are just as clueless. I rather buy Nexus even if it manufactured by HTC at least I will get the upgrde.
I've brought HTC Hero, before I came from SYMBIAN. I've used many SYMBIAN phones from Nokia. I've got HTC Hero to get some fresh air after using so many SYMBIAN phones. I thought Android on hero was best & HTC will provide updates time to time for it!???
BUT, my idea was totally wrong, I've compared Hero to N97 mini. Now I think N97 mini is far better than my hero. At least N97 mini gets its updates time to time. updates time to time.
I'll go back to SYMBIAN again with Nokia, Hero is my first and last handset from HTC unless they provide Android 2.2 update for it. unless they provide Android 2.2 update for it.
SYMBIAN, SYMBIAN & SYMBIAN is far better than any versions of Android. SYMBIAN is the best with NOKIA.
Samsung spica have similar homebrew port (AFAIR developer name to google is leshak)
Anonymous, 28 May 2010Dude, then why is the Hero 2.1 update available for download from HTC's own web site?? http... morethe 2.1 is for the Sprints Hero! The European Hero is still stuck with 1.5! do some research before posting such harsh comments!
does anyone know if htc_evo_4g have installed froyo android 2.2? htc evo 4g will be available in europe, sometime?
Spyroscesarsc, 28 May 2010Yes, sorry... So the good job is again by xda-developers... These guys run like road runner! L... moreHTC, Samsung, SE - they are all as good or bad as the other. All use heavily customised UI, so a lot of work to customise upgrade. More $$$ to release a new phone, so people have to pay.
Will Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700 get similar homebrew goodness?

HTC doesn't do good job with upgrades? I am Samsung user and some HTC fans said that Sam sucks and HTC rocks in upgrades for their androids...

good job. no one's talking about the 2.1 update.
took almost half a year before there was a decent version (cyanogenmod 5.0.7) of 2.1 for the magic, so i guess it will be quite some time before this rom is stable enough to use every day. still nice someone is doing something for the magic, cause htc isnt doing ANYTHING
Anonymous, 28 May 2010htc phone names are too much disgusting. Hero, magic, incredible, dream bla bla bla... Althoug... moreNo way man! Codes and numbers are everywhere... It's good to put a bit fantasy... Nokia must begin give names on their phones... Or use both names and numbers like Samsung(e.g)... I prefer to tell that I have B7610 OmniaPro than say simply I have B7610!
Imagine that? Nokia N8 Titan... Great name! :P
htc phone names are too much disgusting. Hero, magic, incredible, dream bla bla bla... Although their phone specs are good enough. They should star releasing new phones with model number like nokia.
Nice job by HTC... They upgrade even their first Android handsets... Well done HTC! Other companies with Android phone has to follow HTC! :)
and what about nexus one>?
@ all you Hero 2.1 cry-babies:
HTC released the 2.1 update for the Sprint Hero LAST WEEK. The update for the GSM Hero is only days away now!
Why does the desire get the 2.2 update while the magic doesn't when they have the same amount off rom. Is this just an excuse from htc? Can someone explain this to me?
