Default Trashing my Asian Hero

OMG! I bought my Asian HTC Hero last summer because of all the hype. Back then, there was no mention of it coming to the U.S. so went for it. But for the past few months it has been very laggy. Apparently, the firmware updates that are out now are NOT for the asian versions. I really really want to chunk it!

Sorry, just venting.

Firmware 1.5, Build number 1.76.405.6 SUCKS!!

You should just flash to a custom ROM. Since you're still on 1.76, the MoDaCo Guide stickied should work just fine.

Thanks. I have been wanting to do that but I suck at stuff like that. Knowing me, I will brick it. One way to find out, right?

Maybe, but it's also a WWE (world-wide English) build so I don't see why 2.73.405.5 wouldn't work. Have you tried downloading it from HTC's support site? Updating might just be a lot simpler than you thought!
