No you'll get the message there a new rom and HTC said it's going to be pushed to your phone (so OTA)
Seems strange to me since not everybody has decent 3g cover, without it it would take a very long time
to download a 130mb file....

So I hope this is gonna change, I'd rather download it myself than have it pushed to my phone

I was privy to an email at work...

You can call HTC direct, ask them when the update is due, and they will confirm... if they read their bloody emails!

I don't want an OTA update, i'd rather wait until a decent rom is cooked up so I don't have to go through the hassle of creating a goldcard again or anything else similar. (Could even be impossible)

Sorry if this is a little offtopic, but do you have any news on the HTC Magic (32A)?
Thanks

Hero update of Sprint
Yesterday, we had news that HTC was supposedly going to release an Android 2.1 update for HTC Hero in late April, however, here is some news which will bring cheers to your ears.

android_21[1]

According to a HTC forum member, who spoke with a Sprint executive to troubleshoot his HTC Hero which did not have service, the Android 2.1 update may arrive on March 26th, 2010 for Sprint users instead of the late April. The conversation below: (emphasis added)

I just got of the phone with the advanced support at sprint becuase my phone did not have any service since this morning. They tried all the basic trouble shooting and then said that they had seen this issue before but that the new firmware will address this issue they also stated that reactivating the phone is a work around for now. I kept on asking about the firmware release and they finally released a date for the 2.1 firmware. He stated and confirm that this update will come on 03/26/2010.

However, this update is not officially confirmed, and if released will only be available for Sprint users right now, other HTC Hero users might have to wait till April end to receive official OTA updates from HTC directly.

We will keep our eyes open for any official confirmation from Sprint with regards to this. In the meantime you can call the Sprint support and let us know if they do confirm this with you.
