    I recieved my HTC hero about 1 month ago as a present and i'm loving it, and i can't wait to get the android update from 1.5 to 2.1. :D

    When those updates finally arrive, how will i know which region to download from? Should i choose the ones with the WWE_release_signed_NoDriver tag? and what is meant with the released_signed? :confused:

    My current build is 2.73.405.5.
    and it's an unlocked version ( figured this out by using 3 different sim cards )

    Thnx in advance for the answer to my questions..

    Hi Serial,

    Previous updates have checked device serial numbers and refused to install on incorrect ones. If, as HTC have stated, the 2.1 updates are delivered OTA then presumably a similar check will be done prior to the update being pushed to the handset.

    To answer your other question, "WWE" stands for World Wide English, and "release_signed" simply means that the update is signed by HTC to allow installation by the OS and intended for public release.

    Hope this helps.
