I posted last week about a Sprint Hero ROM update. It was a small update at about 3.5MB, and at the time there was no official word on what exactly it was supposed to do, but there were rumors it was focused at fixing the SMS issue where the phone would not sleep after an SMS message was sent. This, of course, resulted in poor battery life. Well, today I was at the Sprint website for the Hero and found the official changes made in the update. For clarity, the Hero is still Android 1.5, this did not update the Firmware version, just the software version. Uh, well, that sort of makes sense. Here is the official statement:
Software – 1.56.651.2
Firmware – 1.5
11/18/2009 By downloading this software upgrade you will see improvements to your device performance with regards to camera picture quality, SMS, Bluetooth and to the dialer application. Also, mute and speakerphone buttons have been added to the talk screen.
There you have it. It updates the following items
- Camera Picture Quality
- Dialer App
And it adds:
Mute and Speakerphone buttons to the talk screen.
