Been using this since last night, seems to be working well!

Lost all my texts and apps, a little annoying as I hadn't had this happen every other time I updated to another rom.

Flash does not seem to work for me at all, not installed by default and can't get it from the market place, and will not install directly from my SD card.
Might be completely on the wrong track assuming it should work, but that was the main reason for Froyo for me! :)

Wifi looses connection when phone locks as other have said.

Marketplace sometimes fails downloading, also apps seem to be in weird orders and not related by my search, but that may be a new "feature" or something.

The going onto silent thing is annoying too!

But good work so far, didn't get to try Angry Birds on 2.1, but seems good on 2.2! Nice and snappy.

Unfortunately the San Francisco doesn't meet the system requirements for Flash. It requires an ARMv7 based CPU and the San Francisco has a Qualcomm MSM7227 which is ARMv6 based.

If by 'going onto silent thing' you mean the phone goes into silent when you turn it over, this can be turned off in Settings -> Sound -> Turn to mute.

Cheers,

Andy

Great release, nice to have a good release of 2.2 so quickly!

I have a problem with rooting my phone and maintaining root access.

I have used the 'adb shell chmod 04755 /system/bin/su' method to restore root permissions.

The phone loses root access on each reboot.

After I chmod, root access returns.

I guess I don't reboot much so it's not such a big deal, but a permanent root of the phone on 2.2 would be nice.

Anyone else have this problem?

How well do live wallpapers work with this ROM? I found with 2.1 they made the menu a little jerky. Are they smoother with Froyo?

All stock Live wallpapers (Yes, including the water one) run smoothly without any noticeable lag

First phone I've ever had that could do this! *Sob*

I have tried that, but it also seemed really unstable, the program said that the phone was rooted, and other times losing root access again.

What's wrong with root?

1st boot: Root doesn't word -Reboot-
2nd, 3rd, 4th: Root works fine.

I haven't touched it and it works perfectly for me :)

I would just check you have deleted all the data and cache and try again - it seems that the Google related services do not work if you log in first using wifi.

I tried to sign in again this afternoon and it just went straight into the main screen without saying it is trying to sign in. So all is well got into market and downloaded winamp!!

Now I just need to work out this youtube fix

Actually, I think it's a problem with the Root Explorer I installed, it breaks every reboot and needs the chmod reapplied.

I wrongly assumed the other root dependent apps were not working. Looks like chmod root method worked okay after all.

Would this be usable enough for a relative newbie like myself?

I downloaded universal androot and when i clicked on go root it said the phone is already rooted. Is this the case??
I also downloaded ES file explorer,after I installed in went into settings to get root explorer and selected the second option which i forgot how to spell. The app just froze so i turned off the restarted the phone. On starting ES again it asked for SU permission which i granted but then ES force closes all the tome now? Could it be that i need to root in universal androot and ignore the your phone has already been rooted message?

Also when i delete the you tube app am i just literally deleting the apk?

You should just root again I think you unrooted it and you cant grant permissions because its not rooted. I am not sure this is the reason i am guessing using common sense but that may not be the case, try reflashing the update.zip, and once you got it runing again root again even if it says its rooted and then , I use file manager or the filer that comes with the ROM

Yes!

Honestly the San Frans Alpha is more stable than the Pulses Final, retail rom :)

The youtube fix is on this thread and a reboot fixes the initial root problem. Custom notifications won't play, GPS is hit and miss and some of your MP3 won't play

Other than that it's almost perfect <3

Sorted, except the fancy widget not working, no weather info! :)


Fancy Widget when first activated defaults to trying to find your locaiton automatically. Go into its config menu and set your location manually, it should work fine after that.
