No May 7th Android 2.1 Update For Sprint HTC Hero - And Yet Again We Are Sad Pandas

The HTC Hero Android 2.1 update (which we previewed in full here) drama can now probably get its own reality show - every week we get a leak or a "source" that promises the update "for sure this time" and then the week goes by - and nothing happens.

The recent May 7th rumor was getting so old and repetitive, we didn't even consider it report-worthy, and now a Sprint community employee has indicated it indeed had no merit.

SarahHS, an official Sprint Community Admin (Sprint Community is Sprint's official forum) closed a thread that posted those same "leaked" Best Buy screenshots that promised the update on the 7th with:

Closing this thread because I don't want folks to think that 2.1 is coming out on the 7th.

Re: Re: FWD: Re: Sprint HTC Hero Android 2.1 Final Update Schedule Confirmed!!!11One

We are all tired of waiting for Android 2.1 to finally officially land on the HTC Hero, or even get a definite day announced by anyone official.

Speculations after speculations that started back in November kept predicting new dates after dates for an upgrade, starting from January to pretty much every week of April, and now May.

In light of these "rumors", we found a new rumor of that we wanted to share, with smiles on our faces.

This was drawn by a 4 year old kid of VoXPCS on Sprint.com forums:

HTC Hero new release date

I am writing this from the floor where I fell laughing when I saw the drawing.

Detailed Mega Review Of Android 2.1 On Our HTC Hero - Discover All The New Features (With Lots Of Screenshots)

Introduction

Us, Hero owners, have been waiting for an OS upgrade for a loooooong time, since the phone got released last October with Android 1.5.

At first, we were hoping for 1.6, then 2.0, and finally 2.1 was promised ("Totally for real this time, yo" - said Sprint and HTC but we saw nothing).

Other phones kept getting 2.1 upgrades but our favorite Hero saw only promises after promises with release dates pushed further and further back.

Android 2.1 On HTC Hero

Therefore, when a Hero Android 2.1 build got [inadvertently - oh, the drama with these leaks!] leaked online, and an Android ROM hacker by the name of damageless (hi damageless!) incorporated the code from the leak into his ROM, called DamageControl, we knew the finish line was near.

HTC Hero And Samsung Moment Android 2.1 Updates Coming In Early May

An internal Sprint memo has surfaced showing a new early May release date for both HTC Hero and Samsung Moment Android phones, jonathan76888 on AndroidForums found out.

The memo looks quite legitimate and this time actually lists 2.1 as the update target, compared to the one from 3 weeks ago that referenced a "maintenance release" and promised an April 9th date (followed by rumors of April 16th, all false).

The wait is almost over, guys. In the meantime, I have flashed my Hero with the 2.1 firmware leaked recently and have a very detailed post with all new features and a ton of screenshots coming up in the pipeline.
