    My Hero 2.1 is still showing CDMA EvDo Rev. 0.

    I wander what the all you conspiracy theorist will say about that? Mine is without/Google branding on the back cover.

    So, I will conclude that this cannot be a software/firmware issue, and is actually a chip-set issue on the Hero circuit board. Any other ideas?

    It's a well known issue and purportedly the EvDO is mis-represented. Supposedly you are getting the higher speed and just the phone reports it as the slower variant.

    No conspiracy... but I believe that to be hogwash! I have used SPEEDTEST over and over and can confirm I do not, have not EVER broken into the EvDO Rev.A bandwidth/speeds.

    Anyway, just my $.02

    Happy Trails!

    I see the same thing with my non w/google branded unit. I put this question in the fresh rom forum on xda and this was flipz response

    Some people are reporting differences with the newest radio flashed from XDA.

    I can't believe I'm resurrecting this rather OLD THREAD, but WOW, the latest RUU flash that I did to version 2.31.651.7 made my Sprint Hero show 'REV A', FINALLY! Well, that only took a year to get this placebo fix resolved.
