[QUOTE=MisterM;24014932]Righto lads, anyone had problems with 2.2 not picking up your routers with WIFI? I may be using it on my HD2 but its worked for other people and those who had Android phones to begin with got it as well.[/QUOTE] Jup, had that as well. Delete the network from your phone and connect to it again. Fixed it for me. Also, anyone has a decent doom or quake port for android?

[QUOTE] [IMG]http://phandroid.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/adobeflashfrg22-150x83.jpg[/IMG] Almost since the FRG01B firmware began rolling out to bring the Motorola Droid to Android 2.2 we have been hearing murmurs of a second firmware, this [URL="javascript:%20void(0)"]one called FRG22[/URL]. The question of whether FRG22 was a bug-fixed version of the Froyo update was answered when the [URL="javascript:%20void(0)"]halted FRG01B update resumed as normal[/URL], with no sight of the newer firmware. Now we have an[URL="javascript:%20void(0)"] e-mail being sent out to Verizon Wireless business subscribers[/URL] confirming a second update that will follow the first Android 2.2 firmware. This second update will make it possible to download the official release of Adobe Flash for mobile. [IMG]http://phandroid.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/adobeflashfrg22-550x307.jpg[/IMG] Is this second update the mysterious FRG22? Well, we can’t say for sure with the information we have been given, but it seems this might be likely. We heard that the first round of updating should [URL="javascript:%20void(0)"]wrap up by the 18th of August[/URL], and that seems like a plausible date for the second round of firmware to start hitting handsets considering Adobe is nipping at the heels of the official release of Flash 10.1. [/QUOTE]
I think I'll stick to my 2.2 Rooted build. It's the stock FRG01B with Bugless Beast. Not only do I get rooted stuff applications but I get tethering.

I put the code for the router, and pass but no luck, bukfuk.
I have a Hero and I like it mostly but three major complaints: 1) It's really sluggish. REALLY sluggish, sometimes I'll be typing and the screen just freezes for a second or two then jumps ahead to where I'm at. The frame rate overall is pretty bad. 2) Although the underlying Android stuff is awesome, the HTC components such as their Mail app, the HTC widgets and Sense are a load of shit. 3) The Windows 7 drivers don't actually do anything (it's not just me, it's an actual issue, the drivers just sit there and laugh at you as you plug your phone in) so I have to use contrived methods to get files on and off my phone. There's a fix for it but it never seems to stick after a reboot. I'm going to have to get an SD card reader. There's also the fact that the 2.1 update is still not out on 3 but it's meant to be out in the next two weeks as they're just waiting for Google's approval now. Fucking finally I should say, but I'm really not [i]too[/i] bothered about that.

XP didn't pickup my phone until I installed HTC Sync, I guess try that if you have driver problems on windows.

I got the milestone after hearing about all the good news of the droid, and expected them to be the same, but then found out the milestone misses out of a lot of stuff
Got my WIFI working, changed the channel for wireless. NOW, what apps/programs/tweaks would you guys recommend for 2.2?
asphalt... looks amazing on Evo I dont like how in the Epic4G review they turned down the light on the Evo4G's screen it looks awesome with the brightness turned up
the galaxy s phones really do have a brighter more contrasty screen though
I don't like the galaxy S phones homescreens, they look like iOS ripoffs imo
[QUOTE=joemomma53;24023008]I don't like the galaxy S phones homescreens, they look like iOS ripoffs imo[/QUOTE] Which is why I replaced the homescreen on my Samsung Vibrant with ADW launcher.

Got the Droid 2 today. :smug: And I actually like the keyboard. There will always be regrets with phones, and sometimes I think I should have got the Droid X. Either way, it's hella better than my old BB Storm 1.
Might get this alot here, but: Recommend good games for Android?
Paper toss
[QUOTE=Jawalt;24024900]Might get this alot here, but: Recommend good games for Android?[/QUOTE] just get a gba emulator, don't worry about the native android ones
If you have an Incredible or Evo, [url=http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=752163]Unrevoked - Forever (S-OFF AND NAND UNLOCK TOOL)[/url] [quote][b][url=http://phandroid.com/2010/08/12/htc-merge-appears-in-verizon-inventory/]HTC Merge Appears in Verizon Inventory[/url][/b] by Kevin Krause on August 12th, 2010 [img]http://phandroid.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/adr6325-550x218.jpg[/img] A few weeks back a tipster sent us images of a new HTC device showing up in Verizon’s inventory. While we are still quite clueless as to what the device might end up being, the latest shot of the ADR6325’s product screen now shows a new name for the handset — The HTC Merge. And if the ‘ADR’ prefix wasn’t enough to convince you it will be an Android phone, well the description clears up that matter as well. So what could this entry be in reference to? Will we be seeing a new HTC handset on Verizon in the near future? Enter your guess in the comments below.[/quote]

Got me a HTC Hero running 2.2
[QUOTE=allyhaxorz;24026198][img]http://img.droidforums.net/img/r2d2-droid2-t.jpg[/img] Holy cow I do want so much.[/QUOTE] is that just a case or a whole special edition phone?
[QUOTE=lemon_lover;24027010]is that just a case or a whole special edition phone?[/QUOTE] It's a special edition, one month only thing, I think.
2.2 is being ported to the Droid Eris (Verizon Hero). Its not going to be much of a performance booster, since many of the enhancements are for ARMv7 phones, but it should help prolong the life of the device, and at least give us some of the 2.2 features and apps. They finally got camera preview working just recently.

[QUOTE=joemomma53;24028366]Do you use kaosfroyo too?[/QUOTE] I personally don't. I'm still using 2.1 (XTR Sense). I'm waiting until they get some more kinks worked out of it.
I've been using it for a couple weeks now, and I've only ran into little problems, like goggles not working (which is now fixed ). If you want to try a Rom that doesn't have sense, I would recommend kaosfroyo. The only downside to it is that stock wired tethering doesn't work
