    All being well i should finally get the promised 2.1 update. However i was just unsure how the update occurs. Does something come from HTC or Orange and do i need to back all my stuff up now in preperation.

    Also has anybody already recieved it over the air?? if so what exactly happens?

    You will be warned, but its good practice to have a backup of your device regardless :)

    Yes, you have 2.1 (although there has been a second update for Sprint heroes since the initial 2.1 update).

    By the way, there is a Sprint Hero section to the forum; European & Sprint heroes are different in a few ways, including the firmware they run.

    Which can be really annoying when you think youve found something on Google about Hero updates and its actually for Sprint :mad:

    I got an HTC Hero from Sprint a month ago because I was tired of my faulty Palm Pre. I have tried multiple times to update my firm ware to 2.1 but I am stuck on 1.5. My sister and mother also have the HTC hero and they are both at 1.5 also.

    How do I update it?

    Topics explaining how to do it can be found Sprint Hero section of the forum.

    This forum is for the European, GSM Heroes, so we can't help you here.
