Yeah I have to say and sorry if I offend any one but I just didn't trust the files I downloaded so I didn't do it
Froyo would be a just desert
I did it on em with ma Droid x
I also have the issues with phone saying fully charged - unplug, then when I unplug the USB (original samsung)... the battery is not charged. I also have issues with plugging charger in and NOTHING HAPPENS. Does not charge, does nothing. Sometimes a reboot does not help. About 4 days per week I must turn the phone off, pull the battery, then plug the charger will charge the Samsung OEM battery. These issues did not happen before the "update".
Sick of this phone. I had the Eris, updated to the Fascinate. Boy, I know how to pick them!!
Getting sick of Samsung and Verizon. Everything they do is for profit sake. They seem to be unconcerned with customer satisfaction and only worried about tricking folks out of their cash. Very smarmy practices here... really.
10 million units sold across carriers. Seems samsung sees this as a platform to create future revenue. I wouldn't doubt these "updates" are more about generating income somewhere. Why else would 3rd party batteries be targeted? They worked great. Actually longer life than the original in my experience.
Wonder if VZ navigator is able to lock to GPS currently. My thinking here is if Google Navigator runs like crap... there is a percentage of folks who will just blame google and use VZ, because it "runs better". Have not tested this (refuse to pay for GPS when the best on the planet should work fine). Anyone know if VZ is working on any of the GPS handicapped units?
This is getting to be a little ugly now.
Everyone I understand all your issues and I was very skeptical about rooting phones and was thinking it was only for the people who are passionate about changing the way their Droids looks, but for the fascinates case it made the phone function correctly and there are ways to revert back to stock and it is quite simple. Everyone knows how to install a program on their computer and adjust preferences and change options and it takes some time reading to find out and it becomes second nature .
This is my first Droid and I find many people in the community reluctant to help users who don't do research, and yes they're right, because there is so much info ready at your finger tips. These phones were created with the intent of making it something that really is yours. Take initiative and find the info or ask for help. Many people like myself will be more than happy to help you if you get the basics down and do a little research.
super clean 1.0
btw, this was 8pen-ed.
