We figured we’d better head this one off as early as possible. Those of you with a Sprint Hero are able to check for a software update today. If you haven’t already made that part of your daily habit, you can go to Settings > About Phone > System Updates > HTC Software Update > Check Now. Sorry, but it’s not Gingerbread. Much like the over-the-air update that hit the Nexus One last night and today, this is just a maintenance release. In fact, one of the three features isn’t even for you, it’s for Sprint to help diagnose the phone.
Get your phone updated to the latest release, nonetheless, with HTC Hero Maintenance Release 2.32.651.2.
