    I was talking to an HTC support guy about my Exchange issues and he said that all of the known issues that the Hero is having have been patched and the release is in Sprints hands for testing. Hopefully that means that it will get released soon. I am not sure if he actually knew, but maybe!

    It's like waking up to find Meagan Fox on your bed. Hopefully this turns out to be true!

    Thanks- hopefully you are right. I can live with some of the general flakiness and buginess but exchange integration and this DST issue with the calender are really forcing me to consider moving to a different device for the time being.

    I need something this week or I will be going back to the Pre until these issues get ironed out.

    Guys, you're in dreamworld, so why not have Meagan Fox in your bed WITH your patched Hero (that she updated herself)?

    Problem solved.

    Hmmmmh, now I'm wondering what exactly is in this patch of theirs!? Perhaps this is a mini version of 1.6 to hold us over till 2.0 comes our way? :)

    I would assume it contains fixes to some/many/all of the issues reported so far. If that is the case, doesn't matter to me if it has 1.6 or not. It will show that they are quick in responding to customer issues, as well as make the phone work smoother. That should keep us happy until the 2.0 release. :)

    True but I'm hoping they incorporate the increased performance 1.6 brings into this patch myself lol.

    They've already said that the Hero will not be getting 1.6. ...that HTC is working directly on 2.0. This means that any patches that Sprint/HTC releases will be to the existing 1.5, which is fine with me, as going to 1.6 would introduce a whole new slew of issues, I'm sure.

    After that, 2.0. Hopefully, by using a version of Android that is actually compatible with CDMA, it will work better. :)

    Well with the Droid coming out in two days, I would think we could be seeing 2.0 sooner than we think. As far as I know, the Hero is the only other phone out there thats been confirmed to run 2.0 in the near future so I'm starting to think it will be ready by the end of the year if not sooner, with google already put in the man hours to make 2.0 compatible with CDMA judging from the Droid reviews I've read it's running quite nicely, the hard part about updating the Hero is all but done, they just have to code the Sense UI in there, which could be harder than I think, but I doubt a company that's been working with the OS for this long would have much trouble in the coding department eh?

    For all I care, they could release 2.0 without Sense UI for the Hero, and then release Sense UI, like they did the Magic overseas. I would love a stock 2.0 to play with while they work on Sense. It does quite a bit of Sense anyway, from full Exchange to Facebook integration....

    Just sayin'

    That's my best guess. Surely they wouldn't just let the current 1.5 linger the way it is until 2.0 comes out? If they were little bugs, fine. But the freaking battery drains in a matter of hours if you send a text? That's unacceptable, and frankly amazing that it wasn't found before the phone was released.

    I'd say it be harder to get the Hero to go from Sense UI 1.5 > Stock Android 2.0, considering they would have to someone make the Hero forget it ever had the Sense UI, I guess they could patch out the Sense UI but that's boring lol. I merely brought up the Droid because from a new smartphone shopper view the Hero seems outdated, coming out less than a month earlier than the Droid with a already old OS, and with the Droid on 2.0 it makes the Hero look even more outdated... so I think HTC is really pushing 2.0 on the Hero after all they haven't announced it on any other android phone yet have they? This looks like good new for the future, hopefully they really see the Hero as one of their "flagship" devices and will keep it near the top of the priority list for updates :)

    yeah.. you know, its okay if its just a patch first and then 2.0

    actually, i'm quite surprised they're getting a patch out in such short time


    well, its not "out" yet but if there is anything to this, HTC really got it in gear and delivered - that's impressive




    when 2.0 comes out that will be a nice plus up

    but in the meantime, it'll be nice to have some lagginess go bye-bye and be rid of some bugs


    might be nice to say get back to the stock messaging app

    I'll be more than happy to test the patch for Sprint.

    I would gladly test as well.

    Now that I have followed the steps to cut of Sense and use the Vanilla Android underneath, it really gives some perspective as to how clearly Sense is just laid over top stock Android. I feel like it shouldn't take to long to update and I would definitely take a temporary fix that reverts back to stock 1.6 or 2.0 temporarily while Sense is updated it can clearly be done by just cutting off Sense.

    As much as I'd like to see 2.0, Sense or not, I really don't think HTC is going to release it without Sense. The US market is way too unforgiving, and the customers far too unwilling to change. For each of us in the forum, there's hundreds of non-savvy users who picked up this phone because it was the 'great new toy' a month ago.

    Those would be the same users that would be promptly beating down HTC and Sprint's doors if anything as significant as removing Sense changed in the UI.

    And by 'beating down' I mean 'jumping ship' to that way cooler Droid thing in the popular commercial that doesn't say anything at all about what it's about, just like they like.
