Sprint HTC Hero Android 2.1 updateThe Sprint Hero Android 2.1 update may finally be coming in two days time. Judging by a leaked Best Buy screen shot it appears that the update was delayed by a week and it will finally be launching to customers on Friday May 7. The update is expected to be wired rather than OTA, but hopefully this time it’s for real. Check out the screen shot after the cut.

Update: Looks like another false rumour according to a community administrator in the Sprint Community Forums. (Thanks Lazyrussian!)

But if HTC release it on Friday 7th, how long before T-Mobile UK mess around with it before pushing it out to the G2 Touch??

Hmm. Not sure this is anything other than a minor ROM update like I’ve just done on my 3uk hero. Hope I’m wrong though! :)
