    It seems to have fixed my problems with the compass API that was causing Google Sky Map to work improperly.

    Only time will tell.

    .602 fixed the notification led and the hardware key lights on my phone. But didn't play very nice with my CPU my phone was stuck at Max speed 1ghz never went into a lower idle. So my battery life really sucked. I had to sbf and flash back to .596

    Another tip for better cell quality (independent of any change that came with this update) is to change the codec from EVRC to EVRC-B. My wife said my phone no longer sounds like cell phone, it sounds like a good old fashioned copper land line. Ok, fiber.. But, the difference is pretty dramatic.

    I was hoping that this update would cause the phone to retain your setting, but unfortunately, the setting appears to get reset back to EVRC on a phone restart.

    To get your codec set to EVRC-B:

    Go to dialpad, and dial ##PROGRAM <send> (##7764726)
    At the "Enter SPC Password" prompt type: 000000 and click "Verify" (6 zero's)
    Choose "06 Test Mode"
    Press Next
    Press Next
    In the first option: "Service Option" choose "EVRC-B"
    Press Back
    Press Home button

    You're done!

    Question... Just for interest sake: This .602 update... Is this an update from Motorola? As opposed to an update to Android?

    No problems that I've ever had after changing the codec. The codec is just an method that the phone uses to convert your voice into a digital signal that it can send. I don't know about the value of changing the codec to any of the other choices, I just know that the EVRC-B was much better than EVRC. It's kinda like compressing your file with ZIP versus ARJ verus GZ, etc...

    So, while I can't definitively state that there won't be any harm from this- I've set mine to EVRC-B for the past month and have noticed no differences in my phone operation. Battery life is still the same, no additional crashes, no excessive heat, etc..

    Its definitely better than .596. The amount of bloatware is ridiculous though.

    I am overclocked at 1.2 GHz to get rid of the lag on transitions though. Thought I would leave it on the .602 ROM for a day or so before I flashed another one over it.
