1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Well, I'll list what I've been thru, but the bottom line right now is I lucked out and am able to get a Warranty replacement (It's out of warranty, but I had a warranty replacement in December, right before it ran out, and that gives you 3 xtra months warranty, so one is on the way)

    BUT: I do want to load Jellybean on the one coming, since it will surly come w/ ICS, I'm thinking I should leave it be and wait for the "Official" push.

    OK, The problems, what happened, etc.:
    1. I did install VooDoo, and "Protect" Root, BUT, I guess I didn't do it thru 2 times as it says, so I lost root, ALTHOUGH the SU icon was there, VooDoo was the only thing listed, when I hit restore root, it said it did, but NOTHING could get root access.

    2. OK, so JB is on, I don't have root, so I tried to flash that "RecoverRoot" zip that MattG released...It just aborted.

    So, now I'm thinking, ok, all is cool, I just have to live w/o root...BUT, NOW IS WHERE ALL THE REAL PROBLEMS SURFACED:

    1. NONE......NONE....Of the "Volumes" work, there is NO SOUND for music, video, alarm, Rings for a incoming call, text notification, etc....
    (I can get video or songs to play by using a 3rd party app, BUT, the stock players DO NOT WORK)

    2. It WILL vibrate for incoming call, just no ring..

    3. When I do try to play a video I recored w/ the camera, it just says "Can't be played"

    4. The music player just crashes and will not play anything.

    5. As I mentioned, no alarm or anything

    6. THIS IS WEIRD: When making/receiving calls, IT IS LOUD AS A MEGA-PHONE...Basically ALWAYS "SPEAKER PHONE". So strange that this is so loud, but no volume anywhere else. Now, 2 times I did "Receive" a call, and it was normal, BUT, as a test, I put them on Speaker phone, then turned it off, but they were "Stuck" on Speakerphone. Any call I Make (Outgoing) is blasting loud.

    So, I guess bottom-line, it's all the volume/sound related stuff....Spent an hour on w/ Tier II techs at Verizon, the did admit about the premature release, and that the regular one is coming this quarter, but who knows???

    BTW: I did tell Verizon that I got this from them, which on Xmas Eve I did, BUT it failed so I flashed it on from recovery.....SO little white lie, but really I didn't do anything that they were not sending me, only thing was Root, which I didn't Protect properly

    HAS ANYONE HAD ANY ISSUES LIKE THIS???? Seems like all the other posts of people loading it on, have had no issues, even protecting root. NOW, Even if I did get the volumes fixed, there is still some "Glitch" since SU is there but not working

    I think I should just leave it be when I get this replacement, or really be careful and try to upgrade it again??? I leaning to leave it alone, the JB improvements although nice to have are not THAT big of a deal, plus when the real one comes out for good, it won't be long till there is a way to root it.

    ANY THOUGHTS AT ALL??? (About when I get the new one?)...

    THANKS ALL......S
