    Hi Everyone,

    This is my first posting. I realise there have been others, but I'm looking for specific answers. I'm sure one of you will be able to help me out! I am on the T-Mobile network and this phone is known as the G2 Touch.

    Here goes...

    The other day I dropped my Hero accidentally. The battery came out and I switched it back on to find that the headphone jack no longer recognises an input, and the LED and Trackball lights do not light up when I have calls and notifications. I didn't realise how much I took the track light for granted and would really love it back. Anyway I thought that this may be a hardware issue but after trawling the forums for a while I now hold the opinion that this happens frequently and is due to something regarding the ROM firmware?

    In my case, I have not updated or upgraded my ROM since I purchased the phone. My build number is and I believe that this is now an old version, yet I have absolutely NO idea how to update it.

    Can anyone help me out?
    It would be much appreciated and I will love you forever :)

    I don't see how that can be anything but a hardware issue. Bit of a coincidence that you dropped it at the same time the software happened to bug out.

    But yeah, that's very old firmware.

    Install this: HTC Hero - ROM upgrade for HTC Hero (T-Mobile G2 )

    And then you'll be notified (via the phone) about an OTA update, which downloads the android 2.1 update via the internet to your phone. (In two seperate OTA updates).
