Sprint Hero Finally Receives 2.1 Update
Android Eclair updates for both the GSM and the CDMA (Sprint) Hero variants have been promised for months, but again and again these only seemed like empty promises.
However, and much to everyone’s surprise, Sprint and HTC today announced the availability of this mysterious and wonderful update from the moulding, old Cupcake build with which the Hero was released to the shiny and delicious Eclair version of Android that we’d started giving up hope for.
The ROM update is available on the official HTC’s website, as opposed to being over-the-air like other phone updates have been. Unfortunately, there’s been nothing yet announced with regard to the GSM version. You can expect to see a lot of custom ROMs built on this update popping up in our dedicated section for the CDMA Hero very soon.
