HTC Hero owners in the UK have started receiving the Android 2.1 update, although getting this over-the-air is no mean feat considering the rather weighty 79.88MB download, so it is highly recommended for you to take the Wi-Fi route, regardless of whether you’re subscribing to an unlimited data plan or not. For those who have already taken the plunge, it will basically offer the functionality of a HTC Legend. It is interesting to note that this update will ensure all your apps remain without wiping anything out, but it is always good to make a backup of all your essential data before performing any update. Too bad that Android 2.l is as far as the HTC Hero will ever get in terms of system updates according to Sprint.
