    So... Only had my Hero since Jan, new business line on an 18 month contract... Happy with it but got annoyed with the most recent delay of 2.1 until June... Therefore decided to have a play... Just rooted and got a 2.1 ROM on my Hero (Villain 5.2) and really loving it...

    BUT...

    We've just employed a new sales person who starts on Monday, and they need a mobile line... So... A Desire has been ordered, which I will immediately commandeer, they will therefore be getting a Hero!

    Wooohooo!

    Wheres Lekky?!? Wanna know how the upgrade has been for him!

    Enjoy 2.1 on your new Desire - I would imagine that's as far as Android is going on that baby if HTC are true to form;)

    Damn... Didnt get a chance to sort it last night as got stuck at work and the whole goldcard thing seems pretty complicated to me!

    Will have to give it a go but unsure about opening a command prompt etc...

    Wonder if I should wait till Paul over at Modaco gets full access and gives us the how-to on rooting and hopefully installing MCR for the Desire!
