HTC Hero - Android firmware got shown off

It wasn't that long ago we got the news about Android next firmware update called 'cupcake' and the Android 2.0 called 'donut', and now we've got another fresh one: a customized Android 'cupcake' firmware which is supposed to run on HTC Hero; an upcoming new Android-based smartphone from HTC.

A 17-years old teen named 'Haykuro' has posted up this HTC Hero firmware screenshots on XDA-Devs forum, the alledgely modified 'cupcake' firmware was ran on T-Mobile's G1 handset. Haykuro also provide a recorded demonstration, teasing us all by showing off the complete firmware information to proof he really has it:

Model Number: HTC Hero
Firmware version: 1.5
Baseband version: 62.505.20.17H_2.22.19.261
Kernel version: 2.6.27-00392-g8312bafDan@Lab709 )
Build number: 20090506 Hero_Generic_WWE #
Software version: 1.0.0.A6288

If that isn't mean enough, Haykuro doesn't plan to share the HTC Hero firmware because of some kinda legal reasons. Well, let's just take a look at the bright side: at least now we know there's a HTC Hero comin' up real soon, and how its UI will look like... ;-p
