HTC Hero gets Orange UK firmware update; just T-Mo to go

Chris Davies - Sep 20, 2009

The ROM update for the Orange version of the HTC Hero has been released, and is now available to download from HTC’s UK support site. ¬†Promising an increase in system speed, together with the addition of touch-to-focus in the Hero’s camera, the new software has also been tested by Orange to ensure it’s compatibility with their network.

While English-language versions of the new firmware had been available for a week already, users of Orange (and T-Mobile UK) branded devices were unable to install them.  According to T-Mobile, who also offer the Hero in the UK, their update is imminent.
