We’ve tracked the progress of the HTC Hero 2.1 updates for Orange customers over the last few days. On Monday part one of the upgrade started rolling out and today, following an apology from HTC, part two is rolling out. We’re getting reports that Orange-branded Hero devices are downloading the second chunkier update and, as a result, they now have the new HTC Sense interface and updated Android OS.
Orange customers – let us know if your phone has been upgraded. Once done, you can go and grab all those apps that wouldn’t work previously on Android 1.5 :)
Update – Tom Ranson has told us that this second part will stick on a white screen for a little while during the upgrade. Don’t worry about this – it will complete. Tom also tells us..
“It loaded Sense and was done. Zero data loss, not even call history or anything like that. Just the Scenes that have gone.”
