That's right folks! Its official. The Hero finally has it 2.1 update. Éclair for the Hero is fully baked & ready to go so all you Hero owners can enjoy more apps (because a lot of apps require OS 1.6 or higher) & The magic of Google Maps Navigation. The update is official but Sprint has not posted a direct link to the update ROM on its website, instead it has posted the directions to update through HTC Hotsync. So if you ready to bring your 2009 phone into the year 2010 head on over to the Sprint website OR click the link after the jump.
