    assuming this is all true, which it's looking more and more like that's the case, I find it very odd that they had this build, yet STILL pushed out 01b

    Specially when the build came out the same day….but keep in mind that even this build has changed, i.e. voice search fixed.

    Google doesn't play by the rules, I guess. If you make a change in a version then you should give it a new version number. At least that's how everybody else does it.

    Maybe they just wanted to push something out on the 3rd like they said they would and 22 hadnt been tested enough, of course that is all speculation, but who knows.

    i'm sure that's at least part of it, especially given that sprint was waving the Evo in their face about getting 2.2

    Great and I have had the 22 build for the last few hours and loving it .
    Had one glitch but I think it was a compatibility with a App (Word Mix Lite) that caused it , begin getting slower and slower then froze , had to do a battery pull , rebooted and nothing else has happened as of yet . :)

    The battery drain issue is odd because I did not have a problem with he new FB on FR84B. My battery was only down to 70% after 16 hours.

    Yesterday I installed FRG22 and now My battery is down to 40% in just 8 hours with minimal use. Maybe this is a combination of FB with FRG22?

    For those of you with Spare Parts (free in the market) to go Battery History, then tap on the top menu and select "Partial wake usage". When I did this it showed the Facebook app was on par for usage with Android System. I had Facebook set to never refresh and to not sync. So, it would only sync when I actually opened the app. It still ran in the background while I though the phone was asleep. Not good. I'll keep an eye out on this forum for someone to announce when FB issues an update that fixes this problem.

    Well a number of people said an apology was due, i disagree. Some people make a living or a point to always jump to the most negative, pessimistic view of things. We (the team) have never dumped crap out so we know what we do and as such are happy. As long as the community benefits, including those negative people this is all worth it.

    As far as the battery issue. I started a battery drain thread in the tech board and someone pointed out that my task killer might be causing the problem. So I uninstalled it and so far the battery seems to be functioning better. I didn't use it today as much as I did yesterday, but even so, it's still not even close to as bad.

    I don't use the Facebook app that's native to the D1, so maybe it's more than just one app issue?
