Updating eris to android 2

There had been initial issues regarding lag on the device, however a firmware upgrade resolved the problem to some extent.

HTC announced their intent to release an update for the Hero in the first half of 2010 that would upgrade the Android OS to version 2.1 while incorporating Sense.

GSM version: quad band GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz GPRS/EDGE, and dual band UMTS 900/2100 MHz HSPA (Europe), or dual band UMTS 850/1900 MHz HSPA (North America) CDMA version: dual band CDMA2000/EV-DO Rev.

Android 2.3 has also been ported to the GSM HTC Hero by the popular aftermarket firmware creation team Cyanogen Mod.

The final stable version 7.2 (based on Android 2.3.7) was released on June 16, 2012, and has been reported as fully operational.

BGR is reporting the Eris is set to get an OS upgrade in Q1 of 2010. They say, and I quote: “We’ve received word that the HTC DROID Eris on Verizon Wireless will definitely be getting an OS upgrade sometime in Q1.

We haven’t been told exactly what OS version it will be (Android 1.6, 2.0, 2.1), just that Google Maps Navigation will be included.” So if you’re sitting on the fence debating if you want to go grab your free Eris: …or not – well. Update: Information Week is pretty confident the update will be 2.x.

This proved to be so frustrating to consumers that a Facebook group was set up to try to gain more information from Orange and their lack of support for the HTC Hero.

Nevertheless, on 28 July 2010, part 1 for the 2.1 update was released OTA (over-the-air) to Orange handsets.

Still haven't gotten that Android 2.0.1 OTA update on your Droid?
