    I've heard the Sprint Hero ships with 1.5, and there are rumors of 1.6, and then there are these videos with the original (Euro) Hero running ROM 2.x which looks faster than the US one with OS 1.x. Anyone know the difference between the 1.5 OS vs. this 2.x ROM? Is "ROM" and "OS" referring to the same thing or different things?

    You seem to be mixing the two up.

    ROMS usually have a build number just like the OS, so everyone knows if they have the most current version.

    Android 1.6 was just released. Android 2.0 isnt out yet. So the ROM version you are referring to isnt Elcair if thats what you were thinking.

    Does that help?
