    Im sure regular users on this forum are bored with this type of post but if you could humour one more it would be greatly appreciated :D

    I just got my first android phone, a Hero on T-Mobile UK and im looking to update it from 1.5 to either 1.6 or if its available, 2.0.

    I tried downloading the latest ROM update from T-Mobile but it was just 1.5 again and this consequently deleted all my apps and settings. T-mobile support are useless and simply told me to send an email to HTC and see what they say.

    Is the ROM update on the HTC site 1.6 or 2.0? If i update will all my apps and settings be deleted again? Is this avoidable?

    Again sorry if these Q's are answered elsewhere but ive been reading the threads and its getting me more confused.

    Thanks for any help.

    The Hero uses a modified version of Android (as opposed to the previous 2 HTC Android phones, the G1 and the Magic). As such, you'll have to wait for HTC to update their modified version to 1.6 before you can get it. I believe that when it's available, you will be automatically prompted to update.
