I echo your sentiments. I would like to go back.. Apps I daily use being broken and possibly not usable again is a killer. Battery life improvement is nice but I have spares, and the "speed" everyone is talking about... my phone wasn't really sluggish beforehand. These cosmetic changes aren't worth what I've lost at this point.

For those in dire straights -

Recycling router when connect, disconnect,connect - tends to work a great deal of the time.

Don't overlook that having cache areas that are tangled are the norm after updates.

The advice in the how-to-fix-Froyo thread in Support & Troubleshooting still applies.

Your UK cousins who went through these problems on their Desire HD GB updates recently used those instructions, got good results.

Curses spoke to early. Netflix boots up just fine and the app works, but video is now failing to play. Foiled by Gingerbread dang. Hopefully 2.3.4 is not far behind to remedy this maybe?

Speed improvement is worth holding on to this update though. I am sure an update will be on the market to remedy this shortly. (hopefully) Other than Netflix no issues so far.

Has anyone else noticed how QUICK the phone shuts off, and then powers back on ?

I am not referring to the new restart option.

I found something new:

Go to -

Menu - Settings - About Phone - Battery - Battery Use

There is now a 'graph' up top that you can click on and shows your battery usage

That's due to the new "Fast Boot" option under Applications settings.

I wonder if the phone is really shutting off, or perhaps just "sleeping" of some sort, as you dont see the white HTC EVO 4g Splash screen come up....(not to be confused with the yellow 4g splash animation that follows)

I don't see Battery or Battery use in the settings area.

-EDIT-
Proper path is Menu>Settings>About Phone>Battery>Battery Use

Thing is, this isn't new to me.

The only downside to this is that for whatever reason, when there are multiple text notifications, it will open with the stock app instead of Handscent in my experience.
I have never had that experience & I have been using Handcent since my Hero due to the built in app having a bug at release.

From inside the Built in Text app Menu-settings-unclick notifications
To turn off Auto Retrieve Menu-settings-unclick Auto-retrieve

Should solve that issue.

Has anyone tried this with the apps that are not working?

The phone is not shutting off. It's dumping the memory to the NAND chip and then hibernating. This is exactly what your Windows PC does when you tell it to hibernate.

Fast boot is cool, and since there is also a "restart" option that shuts the phone down properly, I'm tempted to leave this option enabled should I ever want to use it, however in the settings menu, the fact boot option says "disable to use some market apps" and I wonder what functionality I am losing by leaving it turned on.

I honestly can't think of a reason I would hibernate my phone. The only time I ever turn it off is to reboot it, so if there is some downside to the fast boot option, I'll leave it off, even if it is a neat party trick.

Not a whole lot of visual stuff, it's considered an "under the hood" update.

I think it's worth it.
It's supposed to make your phone faster (Which I've noticed!)
Better battery life (I'm not sure yet.)

Just a quick word of advice for anyone who uses the stock Alarm app...you have to re-enter your alarms after the update! Just playing with mine and realized the alarms I had set were all gone. I don't recall this happening with the Froyo update, but perhaps it did.

Otherwise, so far so good with my update.

Android Guru here. I initially had the same thoughts on "whats the point" regarding fast boot. I guess there are times when you might want to shut off your phone for battery reasons. Still, hibernating does use a tiny bit of power (compared to actually being off) so I don't think it's worth it.

The most likely reason for the market apps warning, though worded pretty poorly, is that Android fires broadcast intents that many apps listen for upon the phone finishing a boot. This hibernate mode probably doesn't fire that intent, as the phone didn't truly boot.

Thus, any app that needs to do something based off of the phone first turning on probably won't do it.

Apparently I'm the only one who didn't have this happen. My alarms WERE turned off, or unchecked, but they were still there.

I just hold down on the screen and it gives me an option to "select word", "select all" or "input method".

I'm not exactly sure what the issue is.

I notice that the "Silent Mode" and "Vibration Mode" menu options are gone from the menu that pops up when you hold down the power button. WHY would they have removed these? I use them all the time!

My phone crashed shortly after update and defaulted to sense. I had to clear a default before I could get LP to start but my wallpaper won't change, and my gallery doesn't work. Not liking so far. I smell a factory reset coming.

I'm just I guess I feel let down, droid x for the newest version of. Blur and while im not expecting to get sense 3.0 atleast 2.0 just so it can be a refreshimg expierence. Im not totally complaning because thr speed boost is amazingly better then before. No more forced closing of sense. But i guess maybe thats their way of trying to avoid, hundreds of people pissed the sense is always crashing and the whole "hero" 2.1 update thing again.Who knoes maybe they will give us a maintance update with the new sense included? Who knows why they would leave out probably the most anticapted part of a htc update. its all good HTC you still delivered a pretty good update, half assed six month update but you did it . Cheers to you . Side note. While typing this on my "newly " updated keyboard it really sucks using it.

When I was rooted with unrevoked 3 and installed 2.2 with the PC31IMG thing (sorry if i got some of the letters wrong just goin off horrible memory here lol)

when I pulled down my notifications bar I could: turn on/off gps, turn on/off flashlight, airplane mode, bluetooth, and i think one other thing cant remember right now

AND also the battery in the notification bar showed the percent the battery had remaining..
does anyone know if these features will show up in a stock software update in the future?

Ive noticed when using the stock web browser animated files like gif files don't play like they did before 2.3 update. Anyone else notice this or am I the only one having this problem?

I know this has probably been asked before, but is it possible to disable sense on this phone? I know it was, then it wasn't... was just curious if anything had changed? I know all about using other launchers, etc...

I skimmed a few pages back and didn't see this specifically noted but I did see people with wi-fi problems like I had but maybe this is your answer?

802.11n (Wireless N) support has been removed with this update.

That's right! Support for the fastest wireless protocol that the Evo has always had is no longer there. Some things about this update may be faster but my browsing sure isn't.

This is a downgrade. We've lost a spec (b/g/n). It's an outrage!

People who are having issues with Swype, just put the cursor in the center of the word and hit the Swype button, it brings up the Swype menu to change/add/delete word from Swype. It's actually much easier now.

So far I like the update. Some of the applications run faster, and I installed it on my bosses phone and he says it's working wonders for the battery.

Oh, also, the home screens rotate to landscape mode now . . .FINALLY!

Default Gingerbread but no sense update or new keyboard whatsoever!? What gives!?

I was thinking howcome they would give us such a watered down update of gingerbread especially with no new additions to sense or even a new keyboard!? Well I am wondering if we only got half of the update because we weren't patient? I'm probably wrong which wouldn't surprise me but just maybe there is a part they left out for the full ota update on the 6th?! Idk but there is a few minor positives to the update but other then that I'm not very pleased as I thought i would be 6months ago when I first heard evo might get gingerbread !!!!!

You would have to root to disable sense.

I hope this isn't true. I haven't used wifi yet cause I'm at work and I don't know what letter my Apple Airport Extreme Basestation uses.
