    I've seen some documents stating the release date of April 26.

    Let's get into this, guys - what do you expect from the update?

    I'd like to see my Hero run a bit faster :D

    Hey, I also mailed HTC asking about release dates for Android 2.1...

    My mail:
    HTC (Jozefine M) responded with:
    My biggest issue here is the lack of communication...

    Maybe a repeated question sorry guys but cannot see after a search:
    I have an unlocked hero (i'm in China) I wouldn't be worried about the upgrade to 2.1 as all is good except - just bought BT headphones and they pair but don't connect, works fine with my BT laptop so phones work. Will 2.1 solve my problem and how can I get upgraded safely

    I would expect so because the bluetooth support in Android 1.5 is quite limited. Android 2.1 will add support for more features.

  17. Is this 100% Confirmed by HTC? probably means a few days after for Orange.

    How can I find out what android version I am running now? I have a Hero. Am I right in saying that a 2.1 update is a 'ROM'?

    One last question if I may... I am with Orange in the UK. Will the update appear on HTC's support site when it's ready - or on orange's?

    Thanks if you can help :)

    I got my update (1.5)from the HTC site and I'm on Orange, it'll show up on that site I'd imagine. I wouldn't expect to see it the same day as the generic HTC Rom. Perhaps the day after or a little longer.

    You might be dissappointed. According to HTC support at the weekend:

    "All updates for htc hero are scheduled for the 30/04/2010 only the updated for hero from 3 network will be at 06/05/2010"

    Was that not in referance to OTA updates?

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm sounds to me like theres "Too many chiefs and not enough Indians" I ran HTC (UK) earlier today (15th April) and they said theres no official date yet to the release of 2.1 and as soon as it is available it will be on their website. So christ knows how folks are getting emails from HTC? Or is it just the customer adviser I rang knows bugger all lol?!! :D

    Oh really? And when are you going to get this 2.1 thing released then!?!?

    Spot on. Given the different dates (some of which have passed) allegedly from HTC emails/phone calls I think that most people quoting dates from HTC are either having a bit of a "giggle", or speaking to someone just blagging it on the other end.
