Hi, my phone just told me a system update was ready. It went through what looked to be an update process but firmware version is still showing as 1.6 and I can't see any obvious change :-( I'm on Vodafone UK with HTC Magic.

I had the upgrade alert pop up on my phone. I think I pressed the reboot and install option ( or something similar), it re booted, tried to upgrade but booted back in 1.6.
Then an hour or so later the message appeard again and I went for the other option and it installed propperly, showing 2.2.1 now in the firmware box.

Not seen too many advantages to it yet, phone might be a little slower then before??

I am still using ADW as the main Launcher, but will try the normal one as well.

Yeah, it's a two-step process and I've now received notification of step two and am on 2.2.1. Can't say I've had it long enough to comment on functionality but I'm liking the new look!

Mine seems quicker.
I like the five home screens, the 'switch to silent when locked', the fancy gallery, the fact that it now rotates both ways.

Just got 2.2.1 OTA from vodafone on the vodafone magic (uk Magic 32B)

build number: FRG83D.

After update phone was lagging, and not working very well and was slow.

Decided to restore to factory preset. Before doing that I strated removing apps.
Some of the apps brought up the message 'application not found'..

After the reset and installing apps the phone is faster than with 1.6.

Some apps like skype are bit heavy for the phone, but in general its a lot better than 1.6

I'd suggest after installing 2.2.1 to do a factory reset (it will get it to 2.2.1 clean)

Got the update 16th or 17th December, gallery behaves bit funny but nothing major I think..

I'm liking the update!

Vodafone New Zealand have released it too, mine updated itself today (post a factory reset after a b0rked Cyanogen root) which was awesome!
I went to Cyanogen as the 1.6 was awful... but now the factory OS is on 2.2 I'm reconsidering whether to bother rooting it or not.

I too love the screen rotating either way and more screens is ALWAYS good! LOL
I haven't noticed any other major differences yet, other than pinching which is great! Makes me feel like I'm almost still on the iPad.
