    New Dock Update

    Yes,

    To clarify I am talking about the download of the new 2.1 Dock Software - no need to Root. I downloaded it and the new look when you put the Droid in the Dock is WAY better.

    My point was that in the NEW software (not new Dock) after 5 minutes it changes to a green small clock that shifts position every 5 minutes. If you don't like it you tap the screen and it keep the better one on after that all night.

    My theory was as has been discussed Screen Burn In. I do have 4 LCD monitors at home, 1 of which has the same things on it every day and has for year and I did get some "Screen Persistence" However as that article says if you turn it off it will go away (which I found out after my power adapter burned out and didn't use it for a month).

    All in all I guess it doesnt matter since you are sleeping anyway whether it's the green one or the fancy cool looking one. Keep reading the thread if you want to download it someone posted a link. It's way better than the original.

    I don't think the original multimedia dock with that horrible blue background was going to be a screen burn issue. I like the new one that came out, but don't like how it automatically switches to the green and moves around on its own. I like the way it looks when you first place it in the dock and then hit the dimmer...it's perfect. I still wish they'd figure out how to disable the bright lights at the bottom though.

    Ha ha lol, when I first saw it go into this mode I was confused I thought my eyes were deceiving me. I still am not sure why thy chose green. But atleast its a lot dimmer than the regular dock screen. Just to clarify this is for the 2.1 dock.

    Is this software based (2.1) or is there a new physical (hardware) dock?

    Its software based sshguru is talking about the 2.1 dock which is available both in the 2.1 rom and as an app for 2.0.1.

    sshguru I think you need to clarify your original post so none of the newer members don't get confused.
