    I have searched but can't find anything. Does anyone know what the Orange ROM upgrade does that is on the HTC site today ?

    TIA

    A bug fix no doubt. It'll not be 2.1.

    Someone elsewhere has already pulled it apart and determined that it's merely a 2.73.61.66 revision.

    Just a bug fix?

    So does this mean bad news for a 2.1 ROM, if they think they cant wait to just add this to a 2.1? Pointing to them not being anywhere near ready for a 2.1 release?

    To be honest Ive got to the point of believing it when i see it.

    There is no ROM update for Orange on the HTC site, if there was one earlier it's been removed :thinking:

    That is really really weird because when I looked a few minutes ago it wasn't there!

    I wonder what it is and whether its worth installing?

    Eh someone want to go first? :D

    Is this worth downloading... what bugs does it fix exactly. As far as I can see there aren`t any. :thinking:

    I don't see the point either Randy, I mean if 2.1 is just around the corner(fingers crossed)it would mean backing up twice and reinstalling twice.

    If it is "just" a bug fix then why isn't there a non Orange ROM?

    Confused as ever!

    I wondered if it might have gone, so i downloaded it earlier today. Strange that there was no correspondance from HTC, I'm sure they would have told us via Twitter, but nothing...

    What if it is 2.1, but they didn't mean to put it up? I will install in a couple of hours. I can promise there will be tears, but of happiness? i'm not sure yet...

    Thanks lekky, I don't know how to back up yet so I didn't fancy going through all the pain just for a bug fix.

    I await your report will baited breath :eek:

    Cheers Al

    Seen reports that people have updated and seen no difference. Pretty annoying, home in 40 mins will decide what to do then :/

    Having just read this post and looking at the list of operating systems I think I will give it a miss atm as there is no support for W7 :thinking:

    Thanks for the info mez.

    If anything it'll give me a bit of practice backing up and restoring ect before the big update and Flash 11 turns up ;)

    Just as a bit of a noob question and probably been asked loads but what is the best way to backup and restore a none rooted stock orange hero.

    I've been backing up with wavesecure in the past few weeks and then using astro to backup the apps to sd.

    Personally I cant understand why HTC release a rom and no way to backup and restore. I'm all aware that I dont have to upgrade but come on...

    Anyway first post and all that - pleasure to be on board the android boat.
