I know the title is a bit much, but I am a newbie, and I want to know the steps that will allow me to bring my Hero up to date, this is the information I found so far:
Firmware Number 2.1-Update1
Build Number is 3.36.661.2CL327574 Release-Keys

So not sure where to go from here, so all the information and help will be appreciated, thanks. Will have to be step by step really don't want to Brick the phone or anything like that, but from what I have read so far that does not seem to be a big concern, but I hope for your indulgence on this, thanks.:thinking:
Rooting 2.1 is pretty simple.

Download Universal Androot from here: Universal Androot 1.6.2 beta 5 ???? (The APK: link).

Take the .apk file, put it on your sdcard and then open it with a file manager like Astro to install. Open it and run it and in a minute or two you'll be rooted.

That gives you rooted but otherwise stock firmware. If you want to put custom firmware on there too, this guide will tell you how.
