Going for such a long time without an update is something most Android owners hate, but no worries HTC Hero owners, an update is coming soon. This update is version 2.32.651.2, and it is simple a maintenance update, but I am sure many people are still happy with just that especially those having the problem being fixed.

The update can be done by going to Settings > About Phone > System Updates > HTC Software Update > Check Now.
I hope you get the update you want.
