HTC Hero Update 2.1
Got this email last night from sprint
"As of now, we donít have any update regarding the update of the HTC Hero above 1.5. However, we are actively working on having the Android 2.1 platform available to our Hero and Moment customers over the coming weeks.
We encourage you to watch news reports or monitor our web site to see if
a change in availability occurs."
Hmmm, Maybe something soon?

About the 2.1 update from Sprint, can I still update my HTC Hero if I rooted my phone? For instance, I rooted my HTC Hero, however, I didn't install any custom ROM like Fresh or DamageControl. I left the stock Sprint 1.5 ROM installed and I just installed SetCPU to overclock my phone. Because I didn't change the ROM, can I still install the upcoming 2.1 update with no problems or do I have to unroot my phone to get it back to the old format? Thank you =)

Well...with the announcement of the Nexus One coming to Sprint...the Hero and the Moment are both going to need something to will still intrigue potential buyers. They will be left in the dust if the Nexus One drops with 2.1 and they are still with outdated OS versions.
I plan on getting the Nexus One regardless.

The intrigue to potential buyers is the PRICE point (because potential buyers aren't people like us anymore, we either got the Moment or Hero when it first came out, not six months after).
With the Moment currently at 99.99 and the Hero at 149.99, that is what catches non-nerds eyes first. Once they lock into the idea of how cheap they can get an Android device, the sales rep has to REALLY be on their game to talk them into a Nexus One or HTC Supersonic which might cost more than double either of those fones.
I've also heard late March as a possible time frame for the updates, but it goes back and forth as being the Hero or the Moment. Remember, these are all probable dates and hanging onto them as gospel only gets you disappointed and angry (usually at Sprint, which might be misdirected at times, other times completely justified).

The time without a signal kinda has a fix, turning it to airplane mode then back on to receive signal seems to do the trick (doesn't report any time without signal), but the debate on battery life on it is still out. You have to do it with every reboot, and I forget.
The only other annoying thing is that throughout the course of a day, I can watch the memory climb pretty fast. I bought cachemate, and that seems to take it back down about 20MB, but I shouldn't have to do that daily, and it shouldn't be giving me that much back. Oh well, its still my favorite ROM out right now because I can use my pharmacology software on it.
