    The lack of OTA for we Mac users sucks. Guess I'll be heading over to the nearest Sprint store to get the update and the dust under the screen taken care of.

    Can't believe that Sprint "worked" on the update for this long and there are a bunch of BUGS??? What a bunch of ding dongs. Not like they had any time to get it right.

    And looks like it's down. Again.

    I'm getting a bunch of permission denied errors when attempting to download the update. Anyone else got it?

    The first time you setup your phone, if you run to settings, get a wifi connection, then go to market--> downloads, all your apps will be there (although some of mine were missing when i installed a ROM based off of this one last night) and you can download them. Do not backout of the app or they disappear.
    you can use appbrain for that purpose too.

    HTC and Sprint have officially released the 2.1 update for the Hero. You can get the update here:

    HTC Mobile Phone Support - HTC Hero„ (Sprint) - Downloads
    http://shop.sprint.com/en/software_d...htc_hero.shtml
    http://www.4shared.com/file/xYO5mN2U...U_2276515.html

    Please use this thread to discuss the official 2.1 update. The rumors thread, as well as the numerous threads about the official 2.1 will soon be closed.

    To install the software update:
    1. Be sure to back up all your data
    2. Be sure the latest version of HTC sync (available at the same link as the 2.1 update) is installed on your computer
    3. Plug your phone into your Windows computer and run the software update utility.

    That is lame. I thought it was included. I've been running the leaked version for about a week, only to find that it was the official release. I was expecting more I guess. Either way, it's MUCH faster than before.

    For those who are having troubles with slow downloads, Sprint wised up and posted the download on their site, too. MUCH faster.

    So what are the known bugs/omissions in the official 2.1?

    I'm reading:
    Bluetooth virtually nonexistent
    No live wallpapers, or friendstream
    No gallery (but app available?)
    No voice input (work around available without root)

    I don't suppose anyone has a mirror to the HTC Sync thing that's apparently needed before using the update file.

    EDIT: nevermind, just found it in a google search, at softpedia.com.
