    Hi all,

    I recently purchased this phone which is also known as the HTC Hero right?
    I tried to download an app called whatsapp, as I used to own a BB I wanted that whole chat thing...anyway when I researched whatsapp, it said I need to be on firmware 2.1

    My questions are, when I checked my phone's firware it reads 1.5 is this normal?

    Also I can't check for updates, is this normal too?

    And finally I know that this thread has be covered soooo many times but will the 2.1 be coming soon?

    Thank you very much in advance :)

    Ah yes. 2.1 is available but you'll have to update the 1.5 you already have to get it.

    This link contains the download for the very last version of the T-Mobile G2 Touch (HTC Hero) for 1.5.

    This you will need to download to a PC and flash your phone with it. Instructions are provided. This will completely wipe your phone but your SD card will be ok. Oh it'll take a good while to run.

    When you have done that then your phone will detect an update which will download into your phone an add a couple of bits into the 1.5 you have just installed. When that's done then your phone will detect another update - this is the 2.1 update. It takes ages but it's worth it.

    Have fun.
