Hey now, look what just escaped into the wild. A leak of that Android 2.1 update HTC Hero owners have been waiting and waiting for Sprint to release. No, this isn’t the official release, but yes this will wipe your root (come on, we know if you have the guts to update with a leaked ROM you probably already had your phone rooted anyway). The update is Sprint only, so if you have the Hero on another carrier and thought you were getting lucky too, think again.
Again, while this is the real deal of a leak, there is no way of knowing if this is the actual final version that will eventually be pushed to phones. If you just can’t wait any longer, well you can get it here. Update at your own risk.
