    You will love it, the new improved ROM is due to be released soon.
    And if that isnt good enough for you, there is always the custom one, so smooth and lagless

    :p:

    It worked a treat!

    There's not much to link you to tbh... It's all the same old same old that we've heard about this update since it began to come in to the public eye.

    A few people over the XDA forums are installing it anyway (it comes with an English language pack), and so far the results seem very positive.

    It does seem however, that now pressing the search button in browser whilst in landscape sends your phone loopy... :dontknow:

    I'm sure it'll be out soon though!

    The music app is OK... but could be better.

    It has no EQ on it, occasionally skips for the first couple of seconds on a track (though this may be fixed with an update this week), but it does do album art / playlists and all the rest. I use mine on a daily basis as an MP3 player, and I'm happy with it.

    For those who want to copy all their phone contacts to SIM card- check out ''Contact2Sim'' on the market. Though- the free version only allows you to copy the contacts in bulk- not individually. I just copied all my contacts to sim anyways

    I've noticed this as well when I was listening to music on the way to uni!! I don't know if it is fixed in the upcoming update because I'm using Modaco's custom rom 2.0 which is based on the new update!! but at least there's a lot less lag

    Pretty good as long as you turn off wifi, gps, and bluetooth, etc, at the same time..

    Anyone else used both iPhone OS and Android extensively and found Android to be far superior?
    9 pages of apps < 7 pages of whatever you want.
    Plus its much more functional and it can background like a *****

    I don't need to use the iPhone extensively to know that the Hero is better! :p:

    Though my mate Jimmi T has, and he would agree with you.
