I have been waiting for an Android 2.1 update since its official release by Sprint. The HTC Hero Android 2.1 Update is finally on its way now.

When I opened the HTC India Support webpage today I saw following:

HTC Hero Android 2.1 Update India GSM

To my surprise, there is an update available which is Firmware over-the-air (FOTA) client update & YouTube player Update. I was surprised to see this, because it was the same case when the Android 2.1 update for HTC Hero was released in Europe some days back.

However I didn't yet received any notification on my hero as mentioned in the notice, but I am eagerly waiting for it.

Please add comments if you got any notifications or updates on your HTC Hero India GSM cell.

Adding .cer certificates on your Android Phone

The only reason I used this title is - in this tutorial we will be using .cer certificate and will be converting it to .pfx certificate which will then be used on our phone. (Experience free call to US and Canada visit How to use Gmail Call features outside US ) I have gone through a lot of pages saying that certificates problem with Android OS, how to use WPA2 Enterprise secured network on Android, how to add .cer files to android and many more. I have found solutions to some problems somewhere on the internet, but didn't found all the related information at a single place. So I thought of writing this blog entry dedicated to adding certificates for WPA2 Enterprise secured network. Please note that I have a HTC Hero (GSM) which is having Android OS 1.5 (Yes I resisted myself from rooting it with 2.1, but the official update is coming soon).
