Exclamation Official htc hero 2.1 rom scheduled!!!

ORGINALLY POSTED AT MODACO

HEY!

LOOK WHAT I MANAGED TO SQUEEZE OUT OF A NOOB FROM HTC

I SENT

Hi. I am so waiting for the new firmware for the HTC Hero (GSM) and I was wondering why can't you (htc) just release what they've done so far then OTA patch it later? I guess you're almost finished because you've used a whole lot of time now. I've been waiting ever since before christmas and checked your website for new update every day. I'm impationtly waiting! And please, if you do not release it, please provide me some details!


THEY REPLIED

Dear

Thank you for your enquiry about htc hero.

Some of the phones in our Android line up including your Hero are due to receive an upgrade, and it is scheduled to be released starting at the end of April. Your phone should be upgraded Over-The-Air. You can expect a pop-up message on your phone when connected to the internet once it is ready. When the upgrade is ready, we will notify you via our website and on various social media networks including Twitter and Face book.


If these steps have not helped, please let me know by responding using the link provided and I will be happy to check again for you.

Best regards,

Ivona

HTC Corp. Global Service Division




AND I WAS LIKE OMFG !

DONATE TO ME
and havn't they already said it won't be an OTA?

i didn't think the jump from 1.5 to 2.1 was possible via an OTA.

I agree... the OTA thing sounds like a bunch of horse piss. The update includes a new kernel, which means replacing the current kernel, which means the phone will need to be in either recovery or fastboot mode in order for the update to take place. Correct me if I'm wrong...

I'm skeptical...


However the OTA is not the problem. They didn't say it's an OTA update... just said that, you'll get a message on your phone telling you an update is available (+ instructions: go to website bla bla).

Still don't believe what some HTC support-minion says. They don't have a clue.

Some people over here in holland got the same mail. OTA and the end of april...
Funny since the Sprint hero (wich is branded) wil get his update around 20th of march....

I think this is because of the legend wich is released last week. The legend is a faster phone than the hero. But also more expensive I think when the difference is only a few mhz and a amoled screen not a lot of people who have the hero is gonna buy the legend when the hero get's 2.1...

For me it just opened another option. Kind of sick of promises was going to buy a desire but don't know for sure now...

Default OTA

what i think they ment is that you'll get a notice or message on your phone that a new firmware is available and you'll have to goto their website
