Flash Player when?
:icon_evil: I have been wondering when we get Flash ?
Just my two cents, but I think Froyo is da bomb. I am sure gingerbread will be even better of an update to the OS but Froyo sure had some nice changes. (Plus if you are rooted you can get all the goodies from Froyo and have some nice extra hacks included)
If you have Froyo, you can get Flash now. You have 3 options.
If you have RFG01B you can install Flash from one of the many links on this site.
If you have RFG22D you can go to the Market and get it from there.
If you have FTG01B you can install the patch that updates Froyo to FBG22D and go to the Market as in option 2.
I made a change in option #3. I did it this way because I can't edit.
Giant25...same issue here with Slacker, bass isn't right anymore with 2.2. Do you have problems with force close when skipping a song?...I do
I just have sound quality issues, no force closes. I tried to ask if anyone had problems when hooking up to a real stereo in an earlier post, but all I got was some sarcastic non-answer trying to make me sound like I don't know what I'm talking about. So I'll try to ask again, does anyone have great sounding Slacker or Pandora on a real stereo with 2.2 (non-root)? Thanks.
If that was my post about running the update manually, it was a serious answer. If you won't do it, then that's fine, it's your choice. If it was the one about Windows XP, that had nothing to do with you whatsoever.
So let's try this again since trying to get you to fix the problem with installing a better update than the OTA isn't an acceptable alternative.
Are you running Slacker free or the paid version? The free version is highly-compressed music that will be clipped on both ends to conserve bandwidth. This is a problem with any MP3; the compression is very smart but it does eventually start cutting into quality. I imagine, based on my subjective testing, that the audio is compressed to a bitrate of about 96 whereas a CD (which itself often sounds a bit cold and sterile compared to an analog recording) is 320. Pump that out to a high-quality stereo and an audiophile will notice. Headphones, maybe not so much.
If things sounded a lot better on 2.1 then it might be the new stagefright codec or whatever the heck it's called. I was reading up on it in another thread with a Pandora issue (totally unrelated) and it was reported that changing or uninstalling the codec improves sound quality. In the same thread it was reported it didn't, but YMMV if you want to try it.
All I was looking for was someone else who plays their music through a real stereo and if they have noticed a difference since 2.2. The difference is drastic, and is not a compression issue with Pandora or Slacker. I have the free version of both of them. It looks like this problem is all over the forum so I now know it is a real problem with Google. There's even an extensive bug report as well. Just wondering if anyone has found a fix or a way to improve this.
Yes, they have. You have to do something with the stagefright codec. I'm sorry if I wasn't perfectly crystal clear about that in my previous post, but the fix isn't as simple as flipping a switch in your phone.
Ok, I'm out of this thread. Going to go find the answers elsewhere I guess.
Android 2.2 os is great i love it ! Bring us gingerbread for christmas lmfao
Yes the sound issue was there after 2.2, before and after rooting I have not updated Slacker since I had 2.1, so I believe it is Froyo related audio issue.
Thru car stereo and 2.1 PC speakers also. SLACKER version 1.0.388
