    log into gmail to get all your info/apps back.

    You cannot go back to 2.0

    Pretty sure if the update screwed up your contacts etc, going back to the previous version won't fix it. You didn't have your contacts backed up in gmail?

    ya, this update messed up a few things on my phone. I have the gallary icon for photographs yet when I try to enter it says I don't have the application installed. Also the Photos I downloaded from a previous phone are now gone.....

    i wonder if im a luck one, or if yall were just unlucky. i received the update thru the network, and it did nothing to any of my settings, contacts, anything. i feel for ya man. i wonder if its a certain app yall had that didnt mesh with the update or what.

    I received the update from verizon. woke up this morning and there it was. pressed install, came back after a shower and everything seemed ok. the "lost" photos and gallary icon that is there, but isn't are my only issue......

    photos are not in the camera gallary either...just found them under wallpaper > pictures....interesting...need to figure out why gallary isn't working and how to get my photos to the gallary

    Wow, I did the manual update and have none of the issues. I am beginning to think I am lucky to be impatient, 2.0.1 is working fine here.

    For all of you having the issues, it couldn't hurt to download the update file and try reapplying it manually. And i'd assume (not guarantee) that if you were to find the 2.0 OS in an Update.zip format, you'd be able to revert to the old OS via the same procedure. Dunno, the device might have to be rooted for that, though.

    It did the same for me, but only on GDE. I moved the app icon into the trash and put it back up. Worked fine, then.

    the solution in the thread was to pull the battery (which you just did)

    I now see that throwing it against the wall along with a battery pull is the "fix" : )

    I did the manual update and haven't seen any of these issues.

    Maybe reinstalling the update manually will help your situation.

    If you have a shortcut on your desktop for the gallery, it wont work after updating. delete it and make a new shortcut from the app menu. The gallery got an update, so any shortcuts to the old app are broken. hth
