    Just checked my phone and had a message saying that an OTA update is ready to be downloaded and installed to my phone. Now I'm already running 2.1 on my hero (3 branded but I used the guide to get the unbranded 2.1 update so running a standard HTC rom) so I was a bit confused as to what this update is actually for, I've checked my phone and under firmware version it says "2.1 -update1" and the software number is "3.32.405.2" anybody got any ideas of what this update is actually for? is it a fix for something or some extra features that have been added????

    Cheers.

    I think it's the orientation calibration tool. I can't find the thread about it (possibly due to the Hero section being reorganised right now), but some people lost their widgets when they updated.

    Yep, all widgets provided by HTC Sense have disappeared here after the update.

    Has anyone found a proper method for getting them back? I've heard one of two people who say they've done it, but nothing other than that.

    Other than to manually add each to their proper place on the homescreens? No. Maybe it would be possible on rooted system, but I have no idea where the homescreen and widget configuration is even stored.

    It's actually not possible to restore widgets that have been removed from the screen, not even on a rooted system. You still have to manually add them back and reconfigure them.

    But I thought the bug was that they disappeared entirely? As in they weren't in the widget selection menu either, so there was no way to re-add them.

    I don't know - I haven't had it happen to me. I simply readded the Sense widgets back and went about my day. :)
