    Thumbs up Froyo Update - First Impressions

    How's it turned out so far for everyone?
    (The official release version of course.)

    I love it so far, definitely won't be going back to my iPhone.
    (I will be keeping it as an iPod though, amazing for side use through wifi)

    No problems here.

    Likes?, Dislikes?, whatever!

    Disliking the lock screen. I can't change the settings to only have a pattern lock now I need to unlock with the android sliding thing plus do the pattern lock. Does anybody know how to change this.

    I also don't like that they removed silent mode.

    when I go online it redirects me to the last website I was on after killing the tasks. Didn't do this before. Theses are just the dislikes.

    hadnt noticed that. is there a full list of features that were added and removed somewhere?

    but i appreciate the update. i really just wanted flash. but i am happy with the new swype keyboard and the new gmail layout. The sound issue has never been a problem for me. As well as the camera, as i use Vignette.

    One thing i did notice, is when i watch a movie, the backlight goes out after a while. cant find a way to fix this. It never happened before.

    For me it is running slower and I am upset that the HTC IME mod keyboard isn't working on it... It just keeps FC. I hope the developer updates that keyboard so that it will run smoothly with 2.2. If anyone knows of a link to get the updated version (if one is already out) of that keyboard please let me know. I don't like swype and I don't care for the multi-touch keyboard.... but I guess I will have to learn to live with one of them until something else is figured out.

    I wonder why 2.2 is running so slow on my device. I have tried a reboot and it just seems to be laggy in everything.... hopefully it changes....

    What do you mean the disabled the silent mode? You can definitely still do silent mode.

    Anyone else's fancy widget stop working? I just have the time and date, no weather or location. Nothing "fancy" about it.

    Yes silent mode is still there.
    But he means instead of swiping your finger to the left at the first lock screen to go straight to silent, what it does is puts the phone in vibrate only mode rather than full silence.

    I guess that would be a reason to show semi-dislike but that's all based on preference I guess.

    Two issues I have:
    1. Stock home screen wallpaper flickers when scrolling
    2. The unlock slider (on lock screen) seems to be a bit slower

    Yay for 270 degree rotation. Now I can lean it on something in landscape mode while it is plugged in!

    When you go down on the volume, before this it had a vibrate and then silent mode...now goes straight to silent I guess?

    Can someone PLEASE tell me if we have a pattern lock on the phone, can the regular swipe to the left on the lock screen be removed so I dont have to unlock my phone TWICE. Cause it's so annoying, I'd rather just go back to 2.1

    Talking Market Apps Updates

    Download and install was successful! So far, everything is working fine.
    I went to Market, and noticed now I can update ALL applications at once. I like this option.
