    I see so many sites that talk about this update and how it's available at the following:
    xda-developers - View Single Post - [ROM] Hero 2.1 UPDATE 1.7 [16/12/09]

    But when you get there, I don't see anything specific to 2.1 firware. There is a link to 1.7 that takes you to the following:
    [DEV] HERO21 - Community release v1.7 (16-12-09) - HTCPedia.com forums

    Which one is the right one??? Also, where are the steps that people had for the earlier firmwares?

    Thanks to any help that comes my way folks!

    That is a custom 2.1 ROM based off of a leaked test version from HTC. The 1.7 version number refers to the Custom Version Number, as in its the 1.7 version of the Custom 2.1 ROM by Lox and benhaam.

    The link on the XDA devs forum is to the thread on HTCpedia. If you scroll up to the top, you'll see all the info. The reason the link points down to the middle of the page is becaues post 9 there has a link to a download in which you dont need to sign up to HTCpedia to download.

    If you ask me though, that 2.1 ROM is unusable. It's just very unstable. GPS doesnt work, the clock doesnt work, most every HTC widget doesnt work...Until a leak of the official final version makes its way out, I doubt any Custom 2.1 Hero ROM will be worth it.

    Does that mean the final version might have more features than the one on that custom rom?

    In case you're interested, they just released a 1.8 update to their 2.1 ROM. It brings back the Contacts widget and fixes the clock supposedly. It's still ridiculously unstable though. Most apps/functions will just force close.
