    HTC Hero upgrade

    According to the HTC website they have started pushing the update over the air to HTC branded Heroes.

    I have an orange branded Hero, can i root it and install the stock HTC firmware and have this update pushed to me?

    I don't understand that
    The version on hero|support is 2.73.405.xx
    I have a hero, on 3, and done nowt to it, that has 2.73.771.73 which i know is the 3 specific build
    Why do we have to go back, to go forward?
    That on the hero support page does confuse me......

    Look at the release date too: 2009-09-11 (having said that, it might be a typo cos the other 2 releases do have today's date)

    Just tried to download the EU version, entered the serial number and got back,

    you answered your own question.. it is a three specific build. the orange one is .61 or something like that.

    i dont know i they are pushing the update only to the htc branded phones.

    I'm good at doing that and rubbish at other's questions
    I did read that 3 and orange were doing more tests but then, have read in other places, someone has received the FOTA on Orange.
    Like i say, i think i'll wait, the phone has worked superbly since i got it and not sure how much better 2.1 will make it; if it ain't broke and all that?
    Make sure you back up but you know that already
    I've used Astro backup for the phone and sms backup and restore for texts
    But i've read that all stuff is synced with google anyway

    2.1 is great, i will finally get back some apps (specifically my run trackers) that i had on my 1.6 g1.
    im actually pretty desperate to get it!

    i dont really have much data to back up, my contacts are synced to google and my sms are backed up with sms backup... my apps i will just redownload and reconfigure :P

    Are you saying 2.1 is here? Ive downloaded the upgrade app after entering my serial, if I install that will it change my custom rom to stock then update itself over the air to 2.1?

    end of the month for the actual upgrade according to here ]http//ww…ope
