Sprint Working on “Maintenance Release” for Hero

hero_band_aidThose of you who own the Sprint Hero will be happy to know that a maintenance release for Android is in the works.  While it’s not an upgrade to 1.6 or 2.0, it’s essentially a patch update to fix those pesky SMS issues.  According to the Sprint Community forum, this update will be arriving in the next few weeks.

A maintenance release is being developed for the Hero to address key items such as SMS and DST issues. The target launch is in the next few weeks, but I do not have the exact date or a list of everything that will be included yet. I will post updates as they are made available to me.

We hadn’t heard of any Daylight Savings Time problems over this way, but that’s not to say it hasn’t been a thorn in the sides of a few people.  Keep your eyes open for the fix!
