    Android 1.6 (Donut) is now officially released to both users as well as developers. But one question, how am I supposed to install it in my HTC Hero?

    Ah! I guess I know where I went wrong. I read, "This platform release introduces new features for users and developers" and I thought its released. I know that the SDK is available for download, but not sure about the firmware (I hope I know what I'm talking about).

    I've actually just read on another part of the forum that Magic users are starting to get the Donut 1.6 update!?! I wasn't suppose to be released until Monday, so I'm putting the early release down as a good sign :D

    But how do I upgrade my Hero? Cos I just got the phone a couple of weeks back and have no idea about how a firmware upgrade is done. I live in India:)() and I dont even know if this will officially release in my country.

    You have to wait for HTC to release their Donut-powered ROM for Hero, as Hero is not running vanilla Android OS, but one modified by HTC. I would guess that coders over at HTC are hard at work preparing it as we speak. :)

    I also heard some rumors that it could be released sometimes next week. Wait and see.
