    There is a bug in the 2.4.5 (and evidently 2.4.0) ROMs from the R2D2 when they are run on the normal D2s...

    1) There is a bug with SMS text messages timezone/timestamp that was also present on 2.4.0. If I use the stock messaging app, the times on the messages are correct. If I use any widgets or replacement apps like Handcent, all incoming text message times stamps are 6 hours behind. I'm not sure where to look... system timezone is correct (CDT). Any ideas here?
    Have any of you R2D2 owners running 3rd party messaging apps (Handcent, ChompSMS, Launcher Pro Plus Messaging widget) seen any issues w/your text time stamps showing 6 hours earlier than they should? E.g., 10AM text shows 6AM.

    The issue has something to do with the bin of 2:4:0 and 2:4:5 thats why I still run the leaked 2:3:15 and apply an r2d2 theme over it the issue is not with the rom but a command in the/ system/bin file

    I've tested this over and over and 2.4.5 is the newest official release and id like to be using that as my starting point,but im a handcent user and it doesn't work for me. Either way I've narrowed it down to the system/bin

    I was curious to see if anybody was selling these on ebay so I did a search and came accross this. Mind you it's just for the battery cover.

    Motorola Droid R2-D2 Star Wars Battery Cover Door OEM - eBay (item 160490735641 end time Nov-06-10 20:19:02 PDT)

    R2D2
    R2D2 owner (with issues) checking in. Phone has been rebooting on its own seemingly randomly.

    All the details: Droid R2D2 Keeps Rebooting - Android Forums
    (cross-posting to another forum, what an awesome forum faux paux)

    I've given up on it for now after reading about the 2.4.5 firmware issues. I hope VZW fixes this **** so I don't have to root sooner than I wanted to. This is my first Android device. I came from about 7 generations of Blackberry before this.

    Beyond the occasional involuntary powercycle - I love the device.

    IF it is something in system/bin then it has to be related to the D2 conversations.apk file or some other file cause I do not have this problem running the Android SMS package.


    If someone would try the 2.3.15 conversation.apk in the 2.4.5 ROM to see if they have the same problem it may help narrow the problem down even further.

    All the details.

    Beyond that issue I love this thing. I just hope VZW puts out a fix so I don't have to diddle with the OS sooner than I wanted to.

    Some pictures of the device.
    I've had my D1 16GB card in my D2 since the day I got it - zero reboot issues.

    now running 2.4.5 ROM based on the R2D2 release and no rebooting there, either.

    If it is the card, your issues would likely be fixed by formatting the card and then putting your files back on it again. Have you tried that?

    If issues persist, there's always the possibility that there is a physical issue with the card itself...

    I'd also suggest a factory reset as a troubleshooting option - a surprisingly wide range of issues get fixed by factory resets...

    I can give it a shot, I think I have the 2.3.15 ROM on my PC...so you're saying that replacing that apk will fix the offset in Handcent and other 3rd party apps?
