Make sure that you have HTC Sync installed on your PC with current driver.

Re: Official test release candidate for the Sprint Hero 2.1 leaked

so far so good took up a lot of space went from 43 mb used to almost 80mb used keyboard seems a little laggy (if thats a word) browser is a lot cooler. some apps are not found in the market so make sure you back them up. will keep using and keep you all informed of anything else. Oh no live wallpaper that i can see and no landscape mode on the homepage. other then that so far so good

If this is what we have been waiting for then you all will be highly disappointed. Just a different looking settings menu and icons. HTC has managed to dumb down android 2.1 where there virtually is no difference between it and 1.5. I am going to disable sense to see if anything is hiding.

Re: Official test release candidate for the Sprint Hero 2.1 leaked

Well Sense can not be disabled like it can in 1.5. I do not see a way to get to the standard android home screen. Home is not even listed. Looks like HTC wants us to be stuck with sense.

Re: Official test release candidate for the Sprint Hero 2.1 leaked

OK, hopefully this question isn't too dumb.  Does the phone need to be rooted to flash this?

Journeyman

Re: Official test release candidate for the Sprint Hero 2.1 leaked

No it does not.

One plus is the new camera software.
