    Okay so, there is one outcome I want and that is to be running 2.2 on my Hero.

    I'm on 3 UK network and it seems pretty hard to root and flash my rom seeing as its a 3 specific rom.

    I heard that European Hero owners will be getting an update to Android 2 (some say 2.1 other say 2.2) anybody know any news about this?

    Or does anybody have any advice on how I can reach 2.2 or 2.1?

    (P.S the 'root in one click' method doesn't work)

    Thanks :)

    Nobody is running 2.2 yet really. There've been a few attempts to port the nexus one ROM to the hero but it's hardly functional. Proper ones should appear soon enough though.

    Ah that's a shame, but fair enough, It'd just be nice to get to 2.0 at least, it's a bit off topic, but what's considered the 'best' ui replacement now? (btter home, home++ etc) it's one of the main reasons i want to get to 2.0

    Thanks for the reply, I don't suppose you know of any guides to make a gold card? as the guide i was following had a certain step with a link, but it appears the site that was linked is no longer providing the utility needed to create a gold card, thanks once again :)

    Would that me qmat by any chance? The people who make that software have released a new version of the software with a different name, which will reverse the code for you.

    Phone System Analysis Software - PSAS | The successor of QMAT The free version is the one you want :)

    Oh and a lot of people like LauncherPro. It's not really a fully featured hope replacement like better home, it doesn't bring any new features, but it's a pretty nice launcher.

    Thank you very much! I'm guessing this is all the software i need to have installed to create a gold card? I already have the correct drivers including adb installed. and i assume i need a micro SD adapter to use with my computer too?

    I think you can make it by mounting it in the phone, although I didn't have any luck doing it that way and ended up using an adapter.

    This website can reverse the string too if you don't want to bother installing software: Soaa.me - (write down, copy, paste, and then) One-click hex reverse for GoldCard creation

    You'll also need a hex editor to copy the code from your goldcard.img to the SD card too.

    2.1 will be around in June. I'm waiting at the moment but will not wait for ever. ;)
