    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)
    yeap theres bluetooth prob,gallery you should be able to put the apk on sdcard and install with a file manager.No ROOT yet,theres a program called gsd that keeps the awake time pretty much the same a up time,might be a wierd usage my twitter eating up cpu in the background,the audio loss problem seems to possibly still be there.

    grrr.... HTC Sync doesn't seem to want to work under virtualization (Windows running under Parallels on a Mac).

    Thanks beezy. It might sound odd, but I think the gf will be better off without root as of now.

    If you have used the ruu then you can't til root is established again.If you are rooted then there some flashable zips in the hacking forums to get livewallpapers.

    Nope not the case,there will never be livewallpapers on the hero from a official release,only done by hacking.

    when you sign into your Google account it should be there, however i recommend backing it up with sync or a 3rd party.

    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.
    I'm in the same boat as you. I tried running HTC Sync in Windows under Parallels for the Mac, but it didn't want to talk to the device.

    So wait, they can remove the dust under the screen at the store?

    If they have a tech at the store they can.

    No, its a feature of 2.1, but Sprint blocks it. You either need a different PRI or have a rooted version of the update.

    No, you installed a non-rooted RUU at the sprint store. You're SOL until someone comes up with a root to 2.1 (if anyone does).

    Okay, so to beat this down even more.. (this question anyways), the leak from last week, 2.1-update1 is the same as the official one released today (2.1eclair)? Right? I see the software info numbers are the same from what is posted.

    Also, will Sprint notice a difference if I ever have to take it to a repair center (within the next 3 weeks since Evo is coming out).

    Thanks, and sorry for asking again, I just wanted to get a solid answer here.

    It's exactly the same. We just got it from the same source that Sprint did, and didn't have to test before release

    I just had mine updated at the Sprint store and have live wallpapers or at least they look live, the clouds are floating across the screen.

    Bad thing is they scratched the heck out of my screen and phone casing, plus broke the faux chrome around the usb port. Guess who's getting a nice new Hero. I'll keep that boxed up to sell and go to my old curve until I get the EVO.

    I've looked high and low, apparently there's not Google Talk app for 2.1. What does everyone use, pros/cons?
