    Hello people I've recently bought a new htc hero and I've been wondering about upgrading to 2.1 or villan? As I'm not really sure about what I'm doing could anyone tell me what is the best download to upgrade too and what are the advantages? Also how exactly do I do it?
    thanks in advance

    What's "villan"?

    Right now, no official 2.1 update for the Hero exists. You will have to root.

    You'll want to do alot of reading here:All Things Root (Sprint Hero) - Android Forums before you attempt to root. Also any questions you have will be better answered there.
