The phones been out 3 going on 4 months. How many updates were you expecting to be completed and tested in that time? They don't just throw a few fixes together and push it like GB was. It's a brand new OS and things are being written from scratch. It takes time. Also don't piss on the work of the Devs, referring to them as joe shmoe in their mothers basement. That might have been the most stupid comment I've ever read. They are very intelligent and hard working and do it all for FREE for us to enjoy. In fact, the whiney little comments sound a lot like some spoiled little brat living in their mother's basement. Sbenson is completely right. You would have to intentionly try to "hard" brick it. Stop your whining and sell the damned thing if you dislike it so much. I used to love this site but it turned into a bunch of complainers who whine about every little thing. Grab your nuts and your usb cable and take care of the problems. Like it or not, the solutions people are giving you are the only ones available right now. Rant over... Peace out.
