    There is on my moment running 2.1, I'd be surprised if there isnt a version for the Hero.

    Did you look for an icon that just said 'Talk'?

    I've looked high and low, apparently there's not Google Talk app for 2.1. What does everyone use, pros/cons?
    If your talking about the gtalk app that usually comes on stock,it should be there ive been using it the last few days.

    try a reboot? It's there on my Heros with 2.1, and it's inside the RUU. I've attached the apks in case you can install them from adb

    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.
    yeah I called my local Sprint store and they told me they're not doing that till tomorrow. :-/

    Any info on what, specifically, is wrong with the Bluetooth in the official update?

    Does it still support AVRCP?

    Thanks.

    All those Heros were rooted and running a mix of things from the N1 and Desire rebuilt by some great developers to have the live wallpapers. The Hero (or Eris, G1, MT3G, etc) were never intended to have them.

    Is your phone rooted?

    You have to have root to get livewallpapers,which i beleive you said last page you had sprint store flash 2.1 for you.Then you can't do it,theres files that need to be added and removed,plus you have to replace rosie.For weather animation turn screen off then unlock the screen don't touch it for a few seconds.

    If you installed the official release by Sprint, you can't get them. The live wallpapers is a patch that needs to be flashed (something you can't do because you aren't rooted and therefore cannot add the recovery image). If you want to give it a shot anyway, you have to install two apps livewallpapers.apk and livewallpaperselector.apk into system/app (or data) folder, which I also believe you need root access to add files to.

    Then you still need to replace rosie with the one that was hacked to let livewallpapers work.

    Hello everyone,

    I just downloaded the official 2.1 upgrade for the HTC Hero. I was very excited to try the new software, but now I regret downloading it. My keyboard is 10x worse then it was before. It is extremely laggy. Is anyone else having this problem, and does anyone know a solution?

    Thanks,

    Shooter.

    Only bluetooth issue i have had is the DUN with pdaNet not working with the hero. Works fine with the moto droid on 2.1.

    Connected my headset fairly easily, works as good as 1.5

    Are you using the stock Android keyboard? Or did you download another keyboard and are using that?

    I've noticed the stock keyboard works just fine, but if I switch to Better Keyboard, it slows down to Major Suck Status.

    I've been using the stock keyboard after updating yesterday. No problems or lags here. I removed the "Vibrate when typing" option long ago and have noticed this helped with the (very) slight lag issues I had.

    Settings>Language & keyboard>Touch Input>Text input>Vibrate when typing

    Hey, ERDude -

    I had the same problem. My initial reaction was to freak out and scream. No GTalk!?!? Then I found Talk and sighed a big sigh of relief. Now, if only we could find a really great BlackBerry Messenger port/clone/mod for Android. My life would be complete.
