    Is this possible to do with Mac, also, can I take my Hero to a Sprint store and ask them to update?
    Thanks!

    The release came out GR yesterday. I got the 2.1 update a couple days early on the leaked version and it's identical to the release from Sprint. It rocks but the lack of Live Wallpaper is seriously not cool. It's more than capable of running them. :/ I'll rock this update for a little while longer before rooting and going to "fresh" ROM.
