    my current firmware is 2.1 update 1, and software version 1.15.61.10

    on the hts website it says there is a firmware update (FOTA), it says once updated to it, the software version should read 1.21.405.2 which is obviously newer than mine.

    this is only availible over the air, but everytime i go to check for software updates it always says there are none, but there clearly are on the site, there is no download links to manual do it either, does anyone know why my phone wont find this update when i try to search?

    I think the 1.21.405.2 update wasn't a major update (eg.2.2/FroYo) but was to iron out a few problems with YouTube etc.

    I haven't been prompted to download and install either update yet, neither have a lot of others. Don't worry about it. :)

    As has been said, it wasn't a major update and in fact the one on the HTC website is for unbranded phones where yours, I believe, is on Orange as the UK operators have their own revisions.

    Lesson from having a Hero. Disregard all rumours, all speculation - especially from the gizmodos and engadgets of the world, especially from replies to htc customer services posted on internet forums. 99/100 they are utterly wrong.

    I'm on the same version as you. I think the newer ones were released by other networks.
