    Hello All -- have been away for a while and was wondering what the latest word out of Sprint is relative to their availability of their release of the updated operating system ?? Noticed our last update info has been at least a month. Anything new??

    Many Thanks for any info --- Tks --- Bob :D

    Android central reporting March 22 on its Twitter feed. No source but if true, would be cool!

    Thanks FullCity --- sounds like we may finally have a Sprint ROM image soon!

    I assume this will be one that must be installed at a Sprint dealer, at least initially. I have avoided any of the other ROMs since I want to keep my warranty for its full term. Anyway, good news and thanks for the info.

    Cheers -- Bob -- :)

    Hey Again FullCity ----

    Nice clips! It looks great but I am sure anxious to see the functionality, anything new, and how well they have fixed the known issues. I am aware it is a mutual effort between HTC and Sprint. Glad they are taking their time to get it right, if that is what they are doing :D

    Cheers -- Bob -- :)

    Last information that was released was that the GSM Hero was going to receive the Android 2.1 update sometime around March 22nd. CDMA Hero's were going to receive Android 2.1 update early Q2 2010 which if you figure that's sometime around late April early May.

    Thanks Hitman! --- well at least it sounds like it is gonna happen in about 1-2 months. That is good. I am sure many are anxiously waiting for it.

    Thanks again --- :D

    If you want to see it first hand head over to xda and flash it, if you are rooted. Me personally, i love it. Its slick. Even has flash 10.

    Hi Swaze --- Sounds great but I am deliberately not rooted (yet) since I want to run out my warranty first. But it sure sounds good and your comments are very encouraging. Sounds like we have something GOOD to look forward to !!!!

    Thanks -- Bob -- ;)

    Last I heard it was by end of 1st half, not end of March. Verizon's CDMA Eris does have a leaked version of 2.1 supposedly from HTC and a corrupt employee, lol, but it is Verizon's version, not Sprints.

    See: Leaked 2.1 for the Eris? - xda-developers

    Personally, I will wait for Sprint.

    Hahaha, actually, Sprint's is Early part of Q2 (which has been documented at length on here), and it wasn't a corrupt employee.....hahaha, the FILE itself was corrupt and the fine folks at XDA fixed it.

    1H rumor was changed to mid 2Q by a Sprint employee. Of course, it's all speculation but I would believe a Sprint employee over any other clown on the internet spreading rumors lol.
