    Per Sprint and HTC's Twitter pages:

    Slight clarification on Android OS updates for the HTC Hero & Samsung Moment. Will be updating straight to Android 2.1, not 2.0, in 1H2010.

    I'm pretty happy with my Hero, but more stability and better battery life (I've tried everything posted on the forum and get at best 10-12 hours before having to recharge) would be even better.

    I thought we were expecting this, just redundant information. The question is when...they keep teasing us : )

    First half of 2010 means June. I am disappoint.

    hahaha, Actually, it means - January 1st ~ June 30th, 2010, anywhere in-between, not just the finish line!

    I would bet my paycheck it will be out before the unit is 6 months on the market, which would be fine by me.

    Redundant and not necessary to know, except for those with ADD who might need to be reminded every hour. :D

    SamXP is probably correct 1H2010 likely means closer to June 2010. But I would rather they get it right the first time, so I'll be patiently waiting :rolleyes:

    Heck, by time they release this update, it will almost be time to get a new Android phone.

    hahaha... ok PM me your tax return from last year :eek: so I can divide by 52... ;)

    I'll do the same and we'll use the avg. (+ / 2)

    Really, there is just too much evidence to back it up that it will not take so long (June). Anyway, so far it seems they have been releasing stuff every month now since it came out (Hero) and I hope that trend continues, it will keep certain people happy.

    Tweet straight from HTC: Did you know your Sprint Hero will be getting Eclair early next year? Well...now you do! Happy Friday ladies and gents :)

    Looks like we might be getting it faster than we thought!
  15. I don't want to burst any bubbles here, but I would expect the update later rather than sooner. If it was coming in 1Q they would have said 1Q. I am expecting it April/May/June. oh well, late is better than never.

    and that's okay, because it is giving me time to figure out how to Unroot, so I may get this "Update". :D

    I would also like to find out how to get updates from FreshRom... lol.
    I just don't have any NEED for any of these. So, I just wait until I do.

    I am coming to Hero from Sanyo Pro 700. A rubber brick, that did all it needed to.
    SO, this is all gravy for me.

    Well to further (possibly) burst some bubbles, not only might we be waiting till June of 2010 for an update, wengla02 - a sprint admin over at the community.sprint.com forums said this:

    so by the time we get any update, we'll probably be behind the loop anyway since they'll prob have 2.5 out by then (as someone else jokingly stated from here in a previous thread.)

    Fresh is currently working on Android 2.1, not 2.0.1. I guess the Sprint guy needs to catch up with the times.

    lol i guess we'll just have to wait and see. it all makes me laugh anyway. i'll be laughing even harder when they do release 2.0.1 instead of 2.1 and everyone starts crying all over again. ;)

    2.0.1 was a mr update for the DROID
  22. blampars

    blampars Well-Known Member

    yeah for the droid, it's the only thing on 2.0 right now.
    i thought it was more of a MR for android 2.0 OS and not just DROID specific, but maybe I'm wrong. :shrug:
