    Well, the official 2.1 is finally here! I have been trying to get a confirmed feature list for the 2.1 update and I haven't been able to find one specific to the hero. I know there is some variation between our update and the 2.1 running on the nexus one. I want to make sure to utilize all of the new bells and whistles that come with the update but I can't find a complete list. Any help would be great.

    ...so when will the "When is 2.2 gonna come to the hero?!?! threads start popping up? :D

    my pinch on the home screen isnt going to tile mode. is this something they left out?

    also, was the alarm clock bug fixed? mine was still defaulting to silent or low volume on its own prior to 2.1.

    Try pinching a bit more slowly. It was included in the 2.1 update. Also, they did fix some bugs with the Alarm clock, but I don't know if that was one of the reported, widespread bugs in 1.5. Nevertheless, they did make a lot of fixes.

    You are now able to send 5mp images via text. No more file size to big. Though it does sample down the image quality automatically to make the size budget.

    Youtube looks sooooooooooo much better now using the app. On 1.5 I used to use the website thru the browser and it was very pixelated.

    When I had 1.5 on my Hero, YouTube never worked on my phone at all, not even when I used the mobile browser!

    One thing I can't find and use to have it on 1.6, was a widget that had all my favorite contacts, and you can scroll through the images, I can't find that anymore, I also stumbled across a widget that had something similar, but can't find it anymore for the life of me, also I use to have Icons to turn on and off, like Wi Fi, Bluetooth etc.. and cannot find those anymore, I know they exist as I see it on one of the scenes that come Pre Loaded with HTC, I see the power Control but still like the individual ones, thanks again
