    Hey Guys,

    Luckily enough, I have purchased an Unlocked HTC Hero and am using my O2 sim in there.

    Going to the HTC website ( UK), the most recent Firmware updates are for HTC Hero (3 Network) and (Orange Network) .. There doesnt seem to be anything for a non specific Network OS .

    My questions are thus.

    1) Can I use those Firmware updates on my Unlocked HTC Hero ?
    2) If I can, will this then lock it to the specific Network ? ( Orange or 3)
    3) Is there another area where I can get the Latest Firmware updates for a NON Network locked phone ?

    Thanks in advance for your replies!!

    Regards

    m0nk

    Thanks for that .. Apologies for not stating that I had seen this, I just thought it wasnt as new as the 3/Orange ones.

    Will DL this.

    Apologies for my oversight.

    Regards

    When looking at version numbers, like 2.73.x.x, the last two digits refer to which network it's for, not how up to date it is :).
