Just a quick little tip here: if you’ve got a rooted HTC Hero for Sprint, and you don’t want to lose it, then you shouldn’t download this leaked ROM version with Release Keys in tow. But, if you’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of the official Android 2.1 for the Sense-powered Hero, then maybe you should stop waiting, head on over to right here, and get your download on.

But, please keep in mind that we’ll put a big fat warning on this one: it isn’t official, and there’s no way to tell whether or not this is the final build that we should expect to see when(ever) Sprint decides to release the final version. What this does show us, though, is that the final one might be close. So, choose your path carefully.
