HTC's Hero (also known as the G2 touch) had it's share of troubles of getting Android 2.1 updates onto the device, and it isn't done yet. EuroDroid reported yesterday that T-Mobile UK's two-stage OTA update to Android 2.1 was being released to some phones, but has been halted due to reported issues with some phones after installing the update.
EuroDroid noted that they also heard of many users having trouble installing the preparatory update working. They of the trouble experienced by many, "with many users only getting so far as a warning triangle flashing at them telling them something had gone a bit wrong during the upgrade process."
Here is the statement taken from their post on the T-Mobile UK forums:
Recently we released a minor maintenance update for the G2 Touch and we have noticed that a small number of customers were experiencing issues when installing this. After investigating this we have decided to temporarily remove the update. As soon as our investigations are complete we will let you know when the maintenance update will become available.
However, as EuroDroid adds, T-Mobile's statement is "not particularly useful if you’re stuck with a G2 Touch staring back at you with an alert triangle." Thankfully, as Phandroid wrote, "fear not. T-Mobile’s forum has you covered."
I guess we still have more time to wait till every Hero gets their Eclair update.
