I have a sprint htc hero version currently running version 1.5. I have been reading some threads on here for a few days and with all the terms and names of programs it is pretty confusing. I had a few questions. - if I wanted to root my phone is there an advantage to upgrading to 2.1 first or should I stay with 1.5? If so where do I get update? - Should I follow the manual root or just do a one click automatic root? - When the phone is rooted can it be tethered to apple products? Thank anyone who helps so much.
