    Sprint just tweeted about a new update for Hero.
    It would come up under "HTC software" section of system updates. Doesn't seem like it does much at all, but reports are that it will kill root.

    Great. 2.1.2 gets rooted and Sprint gets an OTA update out the very next day.

    People wait months for fixes to actual problems, they get a file download that not only doesn't fix all the actual problems, but creates new ones. And they are still waiting for an acknowledgment, let alone a patch or a fix.

    Seems as if Sprint has its engineers spending time on the wrong projects.

    Classic.

    **UPDATE**

    Just so everyone knows. If you inadvertently update your phone with today's OTA update and lose the latest root exploit, there is a way back.

    Just run the ORIGINAL .5 RUU that came out last month and then you will be able to root using yesterday's exploit.

    This works for now, but beware of any future update/RUU from Sprint.

    There are serious security flaws that resulted in HTC releasing this patch that closed root FWIW.
