HTC Hero users across Europe are reporting that a two-part OTA update is being pushed to their devices. The first update addresses some bug fixes and system updates; but the second, OTA_Hero_HTC_WWE_3.32.405.1_R-2.73.405.93   is without a doubt the chocolate-éclair goodness Hero users have been salivating over for the past few weeks. One of our Danish readers tipped us that his hero had been updated, and was kind enough to provide us a few screenshots.

Man, these guys are good. This is the third time I’m writing about Eugene in the past 2 weeks – first he rooted the MT3GS (June 15), then he rooted the Aria two days after it came out. Now, he and ChiefzReloaded are poised to release FroYo ROM's for the G1, MyTouch 3G, and MyTouch 3G Slide.

Last night Eugene and Chiefz kept us updated via a series of Tweets.

unrevoked2_evo

The crew behind the original easy root for HTC EVO 4G and HTC Hero - unrEVOked - has released unrEVOked2 (UR2) – a tool that lets you replace your phone's (see below for supported models) stock Android recovery with the ClockworkMod recovery. ClockworkMod allows users to create nandroid backups, use custom ROMs, and otherwise customize the phone.

UR2 does not unlock the NAND on the phone permanently - it only does it long enough to install a custom recovery.

SimpleRoot - Fully Root Your HTC EVO 4G In One Click, Including Unlocking NAND And Flashing Recovery
Last Updated: August 31st, 2010

This article mentions rooting and flashing of custom ROMs. If you’re unfamiliar with either term, hit up our primers here and here for additional information

This root does not work for Froyo. If you're reading this now, chances are very high that you already have Froyo or something higher, in which case stop and don't run steps from this method. For Froyo root, see this post instead.

Note: If your EVO software version starts with 1.47.651, we have an updated post with an updated SimpleRoot version right here.

Earlier today, an employee posted on Sprint’s blog saying that the EVO will be getting Android 2.2 soon. When asked if the update would go out to Hero and Moment users as well, his reply was:

No, it will not. 2.2 will not be available for HTC Hero or Samsung Moment

Shortly after, Sprint sent out an official tweet confirming:

sprint_nofroyo

Buzzkill. The majority of the remainder of the posts are people who are pissed off that Sprint is more or less abandoning them.

FroYo

On their corporate blog, Sprint confirmed today that the Android 2.2 update for the EVO is being finalized. It’s pretty impressive that the FroYo source code was released just two days ago, and already Sprint is finalizing the code. Then again, as a corporate developer, Sprint had access to the source code earlier than the public, courtesy of the private code branch. It’s no surprise that they chose to update the EVO first, given that it’s their crown jewel.

Droid X's Sexy Software Keyboard Ripped Out, Now Available For All Phones

Earlier today we reported that the Droid X internals were leaked out and provided to developers to play with. It didn't take long at all - Droid X's software keyboard is already available for everyone to download.

This keyboard should work for any Android phone running 2.1 Eclair (it reportedly force closes for most on Froyo). It looks very clean, mostly due to the absence of most non-alphanumeric characters which can be accessed using a familiar looking button on the bottom left.

Tmobile

** Thanks to AndroidGuys podcast host Scott Brown for this leak. **

T-Mobile’s been taking a lot of hits from the Android community recently, as they haven’t really caught up to the other carriers (well, Verizon and Sprint) in terms of great phones. Though they introduced us to Android with the G1, the rest of their Android offerings have been lackluster in terms of specs, with the recent myTouch Slide having only a 600 MHz processor and 3.4” screen being unable to compete with the likes of the Evo and upcoming Droid X.

Good news for the battery-hurting EVO 4G users - the next update might be able to fix some issues that were causing excessive battery drain, among other things.

Here is a quick 3-point update, rumored to arrive on June 28th:

  • Improvements to Wi-Fi performance
  • Exchange Active Sync improvements which include a fix to issue including new account set up, PIN policy usage, and Exchange Server 2010 Calendar Sync
  • Addresses Social Networking Sync issue with Facebook application which can improve battery performance

The rumor comes from one of BGR's Sprint connections and is unconfirmed at the moment, but we will certainly welcome it.
