Sprint HTC Hero: Unofficial 2.1 Android Update – Download

By Alan Ng - May 15, 2010

This is the moment that HTC Hero owners on Sprint have been waiting for. This isn’t an official release by Sprint yet, but it looks like the ‘official’ update – obtained ‘early’ and is available to download now.

As reported from Android Central, you can download the Android OS 2.1 update for your HTC Hero at this link. While we say use at your own risk since this hasn’t been made official by Sprint, the majority of users over at Android Central have already downloaded and installed – and said that this is the real deal!

Apparently Sprint has already said in customer calls that this is the official update, so it looks pretty safe to try out. It looks like the update came straight after the release for the Samsung Moment that we told you about yesterday.

What are you waiting for? Go and try it for yourself. Please let us know if you have any problems after installing. Good luck!

    Bought the HTC Hero in China. It's very buggy. Automatically acesses the Intenet all the time resulting in huge phone costs. Tried to download the antivirus but the Android security site appears to be blocked in China. Bummer!

  • Does anyone know which sort of video recordsdata are supported? I keep in mind the Instinct solely could dl 3gp utilizing opera mini. I downloaded the twist ap, perhaps that is the problem? How can I watch videos from sites apart from youtube? Which file types? Usually I’m given the option of 3gp or mpeg4. Can’t get both to work. Thanks in your time! Rattling I wish I was eligible for the improve to EVO!

    No root access! Go to xda for a dev ROM if you want to still be able to mod your phone.

  • stephen

    yep.. but who needs those anyway, everyone should download this update, from the moment your phone reboots and you see the fresh white htc screen you can tell that this release is a major upgrade. its like having a brand new phone
