    my girlfriends ally just got the OTA update for froyo and it tripled the speed of the devise. and so far no big issues besides the fact that i cant move her apps to her sd card.

    Danggg that sucks. Just traded my ally for Droid so I could move apparently to SD. I will check out my brothers phone this week and update it for him.

    A girl at my work just got it and there's no flashplayer for it. Also hers seem to run kinda slow.

    No Flash on LG Ally Droid 2.2

    I upgraded to 2.2 yesterday. On balance I think its an improvement. Unfortunately it's still not Adobe Flash compliant. Anyone know if this is going to be rectified any time soon or is it just written off?

    I can see them restricting this on purpose since they would make more money selling more expensive Flash ready phones. I know I can load in a browser that can allow me to view Flash content. It would be nice to do it directly.

    Ya the rest of my family has LG allies. there is not a gpu in the ally and the development prolly thought flash might be too tough.

    I believe you have to download it from the Market. Search "Adobe Flash 10.1"

    Apps to sd is available, just only certain apps are able to do so. So far only a few of my apps have been able to be stored on my sd which I was disappointed by.

    Adobe flash 10.1 doesn't come up in the market. At least when searching from my LG Ally. I've downloaded the .apk file. Looks like I need to root my Ally to install it though.

    That's my next challenge. Each time I upgrade, Verizon finds a way to block the root method that I use to keep me from rooting my Droid. Oh well, I'll have to write my own code if I ever find the time.

    Apps 2 SD is enabled by the developer. As far as flash goes, Adobe set the minimum processor requirements at an ARMv7 and the Ally only has an ARMv6.

    My goal for installing Flash is to use Miren as my default browser. I can view Flash content with Skyfire but Miren is quicker and is better organized. Miren can also work with Flash content once you get Flash installed.

    Post here if anyone has luck running Flash on the LG Ally running Droid 2.2

    Thanks in advance.

    I just noticed that the LG Ally 2.2 upgrade loaded in an ap called "3G Mobile Hotspot". You have to pay extra to use it. One more thing to uninstall once I root my phone again.

    When you do the update do you lose all your data/apps/contacts?

    Has there been any luck rerooting the ally after the froyo update? I'm trying to help a friend out at work. z4Root worked before, just wondering if it'll still work. Thanks
