    I bought my hero on the day of release in the UK. Ive been having speed issues since the day i bought it. to try and resolve these issues ive been trying unsuccessfully to install the rom update for months!! i followed the instructions given but have had no joy!

    i downloaded and installed htc syn onto my PC and then downloaded the ROM .exe file. then i try to click on the .exe file to launch it, however i then get a run time error message that says the program will now terminate! :thinking:

    Is there something im doing wrong here or has anyone else had any similar issues? HTC say that its not a problem at their end and to get in touch with microsoft, but they want me to pay them to talk to them so im trying to avoid that if necessary.

    cheers, tom

    Why you install the "black" firmware? now you must do recoil to the version!

    Delete the exe and download again to make sure it wasnt corrupted. What version of Windows do you use?

    2.73.405.5 is the update released by HTC back in September and available from their UK support website, but 2.73.405.66 is the most recent revision (source unknown). Six of one.... I'd go with .66 myself.
