    All I hear is sometime in 2010 for the software update? Does Sprint even have a clue when they will release it? There are some apps I would like, USAA being one, that I would like but can't until the software is updated.

    I feel you I have been waiting for the update so I can install USAA as well. Hopefully with the Droid getting there update Sprint will hurry up and push out the Hero update. I have been seriously contemplating rooting my hero.

    See also the sticky thread at the VERY TOP of the HTC Hero section on this site.

    You could always run a 2.1 rom and get all those lovely apps.

    Does this involve rooting as I have no idea how to do that (and I'm skeered to attempt it!)

    Is the new 2.1 supposed to improve battery life as well...

    The 2.1 Rom I am using isn't great with battery life. I removed something last night that should help, but I doubt it'll be as good as Gumbo 1.5c. It's not terrible, just not as good in its current state.
    Putting 2.1 does involve rooting, and if you are scared, I would wait then.

    Now they are saying April 9th. But It may not be 2.1

    It was on the front page of AC I'd post the link but im on my phone. The way they were describing it makes it sound like a maintenance update.

    I would bet against the upgrade being on April 9th

    I'm glad Sprint has finally came out to say it's coming within the next few weeks...

    but seriously, could they hurry up any more faster?

    Like I said before, all I want is for my YouTube application to work and I am happy. Also, id the device would perform a little faster.
