    I saw the opportunity to run the new beta released version of UD's rom for froyo and jumped on it. Below are my impressions.

    Items that bother me:
    -This, just like alpha, is not blocking ads in apps. Anyone else confirm?
    -Also, when deleting native MMS you will not be able to send nor recieve MMS messages in handcent (or anyother app like it) Which makes me wonder why this is even an option?
    Items I enjoy:
    I've had this rom for over 72 hours now and I simply love it. Using an app Launcher as my home screen and no themes. This rom screams. I don't even have a custom kernel on it yet. So far no bugs other then what I posted in the 'bother me' section above.

    Overall:
    I am eager to see the production version of froyo that will be released to the masses. I believe that build w/ this custom rom will do wonders. By that point we'll see ad block being fully implemented (less google magically comes up w/ some sort of encrypted code-but in my opinion it will not be very resourceful when viewing it from a dollars -vs- form stand point)
    The future looks o so bright for us android users. And I am eager to see it. :)

    Pretty sure this is just P3's Froyo port taken and put out with a UD stamp on it. Kinda makes me wonder if he learned anything at all from the whole UD 10 thing....

    Also Husk, did you install update.zip over the alpha or did you clear data and cache then update.zip?

    Perfect thank you sir.
    Oddly, my swype doesn't work anymore. I'll have to find an apk again. Other then that I'm loving this new build.

    I got the latest antennae band installed as well. Seems it decreased my antennae signal w/ this new beta build from UD

    I went from the first froyo UD to this one, no wipe. Installed Blue Energy theme and P3's 1.2 that was mislabeled as 1.1. Set CPU working fine for me. Swype as well. Haven't tested much else yet.

    Did you download it from the market?

    I got it working, cleared the cache and rebooted. Fixed. Also, Swype is working for me as well. I haven't noticed anything else not working.

    Any reason when I install Nextheme as an update that when it reboots my 3g and wifi radios will not work? It seems to disable the radios and also loses root.

    Btw, this was installed on top of the regular 2.2 release, not your beta.

    Can anyone confirm or deny if DroidLight by Motorola works now? In alpha, it would FC for me after I agreed to the license terms. I understood this was a widespread issue.
