    I have been perfectly happy with my Hero using 1.5 until now, but am really keen to use the new Kindle App, which requires 1.6 or higher.

    I don't have a Sprint, and so I can't use their upgrade to 2.1. There's a rumor going around that the upgrade will be available today on the HTC site for Australians, but given the punctuality of HTC with this kind of stuff before, I'm obviously not so sure.

    I've never used the whole root thing (hadn't even heard of it before today), so am hesitant about doing that in case I stuff it up.

    Basically, where to from here, do you think?

    I got an email from HTC today saying the date for Australia is unconfirmed at this stage.

    So I root'd today as I didnt want to wait any longer.

    I called the Australian HTC hotline last night, and the guy told me they were postponing the release because of quality control, that they weren't happy with the release as it stands. I asked him how come the release was considered to be satisfactory for Europe, Sprint, the US, and pretty much everywhere else, but not considered satisfactory for Australia? At that point, he said that he couldn't understand what I was saying, that my English was too complicated, and then said goodbye.

    Chief, how hard did you find the whole rooting thing? Did you just use the "how to" in the root board here?
