HTC have released new firmware for the Orange version of the HTC Hero. ¬†The software – version 2.73.61.66 for Orange – is available to download from HTC’s support site; however it looks unlikely to be the much-anticipated Android 2.1 firmware update.

The previous ROM for the Orange version of the Hero was 2.73.61.5, meaning this is likely a very minor update. ¬†However HTC do not indicate what particular changes have been made, so we’ll have to wait until an Orange Hero owner updates and lets us know any differences.
