Question: I have installed the official 2.1 Rom but the icons for Apps Menu and Contacts have been reversed
Answer: This is a known bug when using a Sim Card other than T-Mobile while using the Stock T-Mobile home screen. The only solution is to install a different launcher from the market "ADW, Launcher pro etc. Or to install a Vanilla Custom rom.
Question: Why can't I install many apps?
Answer: The app space on the 2.1 official rom was reduced to enable the device to run 2.1. Installing a Custom rom will give you a little boost however AppsToSD may be your only option
Question: When I try updating to 2.1 It keeps displaying "Update Failed"
Answer: Are you sure you have a U8220 Pulse? Check under the battery cover.
Question: Why can't I install 2.1 on my U8320 / U8220-6?
Answer: There is a Rom compatible with your device however I have not included it due to issues with 3g. My advise would be to wait until your carrier releases an update.
Question: My Phone keeps freezing and crashing!
Answer: This is a known problem with 2.1, both official and custom roms suffer the same symptoms. If it really is bothering follow this guide to downgrade to 1.5 [here]
Question: My Phone always displays "Roaming"
Answer: This is a known problem when using a "3" sim on a 2.1 pulse. Check your APN settings.
Question: My Phone won't get 3g
Answer: If you are using a Sim other than T-Mobile check your APN settings.
Question: Help! I bricked my Phone!
Answer: Not to worry, follow the guide to install the 2.1 official rom. You may need a card reader.
Question: Help! I'm stuck in a boot loop!
Answer: How did this happen? If it was when trying to install a custom rom return to the custom recovery image menu and restore the nandroid backup. If all else fails re-install the official 2.1 update.
Question: What is SWAP?
Answer: SWAP uses a portion of the SD card as RAM, removing the "Bottle-neck" from the CPU speeding up the device and allowing multi-tasking (And it fixes the SmS bug).
Question: Why Can't I use SWAP and A2SD if I don't have a Class 6 card?
Answer: SWAP puts a lot of load on the SD card. A2SD puts a fair amount of load on the SD card. Using them both together will make your phone LAGGGGG
Question: What is Swapper2 and why is it so recommended?
Answer: Swapper2 is an app that manages SWAP (It is managed by A2SD in this guide) however Swapper2 has to be running 24/7 to manage SWAP and takes up a fair amount of RAM itself.
Question: When using SWAP I can't Toggle USB!?
Answer: Well of course not! Toggle USB un-mounts the SD card from the phone. How would your computer react if you pulled out one of it's RAM sticks while you were gaming? (Really don't try this).
To toggle USB restart the phone in Recovery mode and select "Toggle USB".
Question: Do I need the official 2.2 update to install FLB mod 2 (Froyo) / Why is Froyo installed over official 2.1?
Answer: Froyo runs off the same kernel as 2.1 did. Plus the fact there will probably never be an "Official" 2.2 update. It is safe!
Question: Will using SWAP kill my SD card?
Answer: Well.. Most of the articles on the Web that back this are written by people who (for some reason) hate SWAP. Technically it will reduce the life of the SD card but you won't notice it.
Question: What is Overclock and what does it do?
Answer: Overclock "Overclocks" the processor increasing it's speed but sacrifices battery life. The Pulses RAM bottle necks the processor so the overclock is only really noticeable while running cpu intensive apps or games (Angry birds, fruit ninja etc.)
Question: Overclock! Doesn't that fry your processor!??
Answer: The level of overclock included in the FLB mod is reasonably safe. The chip itself is capable of running at that speed just it was clocked lower to improve battery life. (But yes, just as custom roms come with a relatively low-risk warning so does overclock)
