Hello. Well my Htc hero (on vodafone ) successfully upgraded to the new OS tonight. All seems well and I havent lost any data. The preparation upgrade ran smoothly 10 days ago and that did wipe everything on the phone but left the sd card data intact. Did need to uninstal spotify and reinstal.....all working fine. Available memory is lower than before according to taskkiller. But no noticeable lag or slowdown, liking the new interface. Goggles now works and is awesome. It recognised spongebob and patrick! looking forward to exploring the forum and joining in! Bombhead.
