For our UK friends on the Orange network: HTC just released a maintenance update for the Hero. No, not a full-on Android revisision (sorry), but it's better than nothing. The update will take you to ROM Version 126.96.36.199. [HTC] (Thanks, Phil!)
changelog ? :\
Will get it done as soon as my bro arrive's with his Hero :-)
How do you know if it's a "full android revision" or not?
Maybe this is an update to prep the phone for Eclair later this month? Fingers crossed.
I've not heard anything from work (employed by Orange), but will let you know if I hear anything.
Don't get your hopes up though. Currently Orange's range of Android handsets is pretty weak.
We got the HTC Hero, the HTC Tattoo, and the Motorola Dext.
Not directly lame in themselves, but there should be more available.
This is the build used by Telus for the Hero130 that was released in November '09
I did the update. Still shows Android 1.5 :(
Only 2 changes that I have noticed so far some minor changes to some of the HTC widgets. And for some reason I now have better wifi reception. I now get wifi in corners of my house where I didn't before. Not sure if this is due to the update.
Updated today and as above, the only change I have noticed so far was an update to the "People" widget. It's a nice change, but certainly not worth wiping the contents of my phone and downloading a 103MB updated ROM. Seriously, I love the phone, but HTC need a better way of updating the firmware than this.
