    Hi all,
    Just rooted my hero off Orange uk (not waiting another 6 months for them to release 2.1) thinking I could now install a debranded version of 1.5 and then get the proper (debranded) over the airwaves version of 2.1. However when I try and install the smaller ota update, i get an error message. Verification failed

    I have tried with several supposed debranded 1.5 versions from different sites but always get the same message. I have also tried downloading some of the supposed 2.1 roms that people have tweaked. Can someone please point me to a 1.5 that can be loaded on and updated as normal or a proper 2.1 version??

    Cheers

    I am not sure if it is possible. Just like you think, people say that having the right ROM is enough to get OTA update.

    But I believe that there must be some IMEI validation, otherwise everyone would root their device with official 1.5 ROM and would get official 2.1 OTA.

    It cannot be that easy in my opinion.
