HTC Hero: Download Android 2.1 Update for GSM Model

By Alan Ng - Jun 29, 2010

We have some great news for HTC Hero owners now, as we can confirm that the update to Android 2.1 Eclair is finally to download to those of you with unlocked handsets.

As reported from Engadget, users with the GSM Hero will be getting notifications from HTC that the update to 2.1 is now available. The download is size is almost 80MB and works with no apparent problems, despite HTC previously warning that this update may harm some installed apps.

Thankfully though, that isnt the case as the update is also working fine on our unlocked device. As for those of you on Orange or T-Mobile, there doesn’t appear to be any signs of the update for you – hopefully now that the update is available for unlocked devices, you shouldn’t have to wait for too long.

Have you received the notification yet? Let us know your thoughts after installation!
