    Is there anyone else that finds the whole contact picture next to every message idea ugly and messy as hell? I loved the look of the 1.1 picture / fb message on top, texts on bottom. Is there any way to safely get the old look back?

    Yea I don't like it either. I like the speed of 2.2 but I miss the old messaging app, bekit's kernel (ran a lot cooler than the 2.2 p3s), and my old theme.

    Agreed. I tried using the old version where you could change the LED light, background, etc. and it crashes every time you send a message. That was an awesome version of the mms.apk... Anyone know a working version for BB froyo??

    Agreed. I like having the black backround as well.

    BB froyo issues/questions/fixes

    I have seen many people with different questions and they all seem to be repeated so I just figured I'd try to throw this together to help a little bit to try and keep the BB froyo threads down. If anyone can add to this info to keep amount of threads down that would be great. Or if I am wrong with any info please feel free to correct me.

    PETE has placed download links to maps, flash, and the new baseband in the OP

    FLASH:

    Maps
    I personally have only had one issues with maps when I first moved to bbfroyo from the latest version of froyo without wiping. Like many it wouldn't install from market. I wiped data and cache and reloaded bbfroyo and maps installed fine from market.
    Another way to fix it is to use adb and push maps to your system.

    reboot into recovery. mount yoru system. place maps in your androidsdk\tools folder
    adb push Maps.apk /system/app
    adb shell chmod 755 /system/app/Maps.apk
    reboot (credit to bill for doing this and repoting it works)

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-news/49238-froyo-release-thread-117.html#post526146 post 1166 has a link to a maps update.zip fix

    Also pete said if you try and clear market cache and data then try to download maps.

    Kernels

    Like the OP states you can use any kernel made for froyo.
    Pete also said this:
    On this release if you want to go above 800Mhz you need to use a cpu scaling application or run the appropriate command.
    These steps will allow you to o.c without set cpu. I found this at alldroid posted by xsiborg.


    1. IMPORTANT: Make a backup so you can revert back just in case your phone won't boot, etc.
    2. Root Explorer: Copy /system/etc/install-recovery.sh to /sdcard
    3. Root Explorer: Rename /sdcard/install-recovery.sh to install-recovery.txt
    4. ES File Explorer Text Editor: Edit /sdcard/install-recovery.txt
    - Look for the line "echo "800000" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq
    - I changed mine from "800000" to "1200000"
    - Of course don't forget to save
    5. Root Explorer: Rename /sdcard/install-recovery.txt to install-recovery.sh
    6. Root Explorer: Move /sdcard/install-recovery.sh back to /system/etc/install-recovery.sh
    - Make sure you are in R/W mode
    - Overwrite existing copy if prompted
    7. Root Explorer: Make sure the permissions on /system/etc/install-recovery.sh is set to r-xr--r--
    8. Reboot

    Flash
    If flash is not workign for you download the flash apk by itself and place it on your sdcard then use astro, root explorer, or any other package installer you use to reinstall flash.

    Themes
    Team chaos has some themes for froyo that work for bb. Clean black, Red rum, Black Ice. Also blue energy for froyo. You can find these under appropriate sections. I have not tested these I only have heard this from others who have.

    MMS.APK
    Many people have tried to install the mms.apk with extra settings and black background onto froyo releases and so far I have not seen anyone be successful. It ends up force closing.

    I used the one from 2.1, and it ran ok, but it would FC when sending messages. The messages would send, but it was just a pain.

    I've switched to handcent for now, but I secretly hate how bloated it is with a burning passion so I'd really like to find a better workaround :(

    Yes....wait til later. :) Thats about it.

    Try around 7-8, If that doesnt do it, try around 9. It happened cuz Verizon does maintenance at the wee hours of the night..U cant login to your account either when they doing maintenance.

    I think the maintenance thing needs to be added to the OP.
