    I'd say the volume was fine. The sound quality... well... my headphones cost me $10AUD 2 years ago... I can't really comment.

    hmmmm i just read a review and it said the MP3/sound quality of the hero is poor poor and too QUIET.

    can someone inform me if its true or not? i have already ordered it but will return if its true because im using w/e phone i buy as my primary MP3 player!
    The sound quality is not poor at all as long as you use decent headphones :rolleyes:
    And its not too quiet either- not for me at least; but if you find it to be too quiet- theres an app to boost the volume up beyond the max- although you would need root access to use it

    I don't know yet... I'm at work... :ninja:

    Rather worried it says it's going to delete everything off the phone*. I've already lost my numbers once.... Wish I'd left most of my peeps as Google contacts... :rolleyes:

    *Last time it said that, it also wiped my SIM.

    Apparently the new ROM is no different from the current Custom ROM from MoDaCo (apart from the Custom is even faster). So I will wait for the next update.

    To anyone scared of rooting go for the official, for anyone else: get the custom MoDaCo.. Trust me.

    Its not gonna delete ''everything'' ; you better save all your contacts on google- isnt it just a one click procedure? I'm sure I did it in one click :p:
    Your apps will be saved too- once you update your phone with the ROM- just go to ''my downloads'' in market- and theyre all there you just have to d'load them again (not sure about paid ones though).

    Yup- I went with Modaco in the end; couldve done it earlier but was having problems rooting my phone. All sorted now- got modaco...and its ohhhh soooo smoooothh...plus wifi tether!!!
    Although- people who update their phones with this new ROM will lose rooting abilities- word of warning!!
    Apparently Tmobile G2 users arent able to get the update file from HTC site; some orange hero users were complaining the same....

    T-Orange customers who want the update officially must wait for their respective companies to receive and customize (preload apps and that stupid loading screen) the ROM before it will be available to their customers.

    can you update unofficially or does that void the warranties etc?

    AFAIK the only wait currently is to flash a new recovery image which voids your warrantee.. And if you go down that line you may as well install the custom ROM :P

    Keep an eye on this thread, if a method becomes available I or somone else will post it here, even thought its not useful to me :P

    Use MyBackUp (or the pro version if you want the APK :ninja:).
    Its not a stupid system. It ensures no corruption or compatability issues.

    Can the apps on the SD card be copied to my desktop before updating and then pasted back over once it's all done or do they all have to be re-downloaded?
