Just curious about what this update to GB does that I wasn't getting before?

New radios, GB also brings better memory management so it should help battery life at least in theory and bring responsiveness up some as well.

Got the update this morning and so far so good. No issues to speak of. I have noticed some cosmetic differences like the notification pull down now allows you to modify some settings (blue tooth, wifi, etc...).

Interested in seeing what this will do for the battery life!

I think some camera stuff. I thought I used to have to hit the menu button and scroll down to the switch camera option for the FFC to come on. Now there is a button to the top left which is nice. Also did not remeber the "dot" effect being there even though its pretty useless. Last I didnt know you could edit pictures with effects after the photos were taken. This was probably already on there but I just had no reason to edit any.

The update won't let you turn off the Lock/Unlock sound, not a really nice part of the update. Now it "whooshes" when I unlock even after going to settings/sounds/and turning off the lock/unlock sound effect. If anyone knows a way to shut it up, I'd appreciate it.

Default Newest GB update

How do I get the newest GB update if it updated a month ago to the old GB? I believe the new GB fixes the VM problem.

I had the update last week. VZW sent me a notification of this and I did it. It did fix the voice mail problem. Thankfully.

I got the OTA, both of them for GB actually. A co-worker who flashed the first RUU manually (both of us are unrooted) has NOT seen the second GB update.

That's not the unlock sound. They added sound to weather widget. Have to turn sound off for the weather to stop that sound.

I hear there's this "new" feature called Voicemail Notifications....where if someone leaves you a voicemail your phone has this little doo-hickey that tells you "hey you got a voicemail!".....so quaint...

is this an active phone? do you have data enabled? i got that on my TB when i wasnt using it as my active phone. i believe you must have an active phone/data signal for it to check.

you can also try going to settings/apps/manage apps/all and clear data on "updater" and see if that does anything.

Notsure Bug since GB update?

I'm having this issue where my phone constantly loses its Data connection. I'm in a 4G area basically all day at work and at home but sometimes I will lose my connection all together, so I go check the settings and the mobile network is off. I constantly try to turn it on but it never comes on, its really annoying and the first real problem I've had with my phone. Has anyone else had this problem?

Also I've noticed that I changed my screen timeout to 30seconds and it keeps reverting itself back to 15s, which has been driving me nuts as well.


Edit: I had a firmware update maybe this has a fix in it, restarting my phone usually fixes the problem for a short while before it randomly happens again.

You are correct. I didn't have service when it was giving me that error message. I have since reactivated it and when I click on Check new, it says Checking for new Software available now. It shows this for about a second then disappears and that's it. Nothing...not error message or anything, just back to Status and Check new.

Default Since I have updated to GB..

My volume isn't as loud. But it is fixable temporarily. I unlock my phone, press once on the volume rocker and it makes the ding sound, but its low. When I push it again its back to full volume. Even when its all the way up.

Also when a friend sends me a picture, most of time I dont get it. But they send again and I do.

Any ideas why my phones doing this?

First day after my phone was updated, battery was terrible going from 100% to 20% in about 8 hours. I rebooted and now it's great. Maybe the same will work for you.

thats terrible? that's fantastic for the stock battery. you cant expect 24 hrs out of the stock battery its not an extended battery. if you mean 8 hrs and not touching it all day then yea thats terrible i suggest turning off always on mobile data in the menu where u switch between 3g and 4g

No need to. Phone has been off the charger for the last 12 hrs and the battery is at 80%. As I said, battery life has been much better since rebooting after the update.

if u tick it off ur phone wont use data when ur not using the phone. very helpful for those without unlimited. i'd still tick it off even if ur battery got better. why use data when ur not using the phone? apps that use data in background will still update btw that's why theres that extra option.

Perhaps you should direct your suggestions to zombiegirl since she is the one with the battery drain. I'm sure she would appreciate it.

Now after the firmware update I'm having new problems, Launcher Pro doesn't want to work after I restart my phone, it take a few extra restarts to get that working again and I'm still having the data loss issue... I'm getting pretty fed up with this now. Hopefully a call to Verizon can solve my issue, or atleast get me a replacement.

Very weird. I've NEVER seen the screen being lowest. I mean, that's almost as if you picked up the phone from the charger, made a call, held it to your ear with the screen off for like, 3 hours, and then checked. That's just weird.

What apps do you currently have that might affect that? Do you use the stock dialer / contacts, etc? Or something like Go Dialer? something is definately out of whack. Also, what steps have you tried so far? reboots, battery pulls, etc?

since i initially posted, the battery life seems to have gone back to how it was before the update, not great, but what i'm used to.....now the problem seems to be that the phone is disconnecting from the network. it "unchecks" the mobile network data connection box on it's own and it leaves me with just the cel coverage...i'm really confused as i love this phone, but whenever i want to use it for more then a phone call it's causing me problems!!!

i haven't "modded" anything on the phone so it's at the regular settings for just about everything...


update: it wasn't connecting at all to the network so i called verizon tech support. After an hour of them having me try two dozen things, they're sending me a new phone. We did a hard reset and the phone refused to jump on any network at all so i couldn't even complete the reset. hopefully the replacement will be better?!?

Most roms out now are GB but they are much better than the GB OTA at least IMO

I'm not surprised, my biggest grind about the phone is all the junk Verizon keeps adding, well that and HTC sense. I was waiting for gb before I rooted because it seemed to run well on the droidx and droid3

I am currently unrooted with stock. I am looking to root my phone and considering CM7 based on recommendations. Before I do that, I want to make sure I will still be able to make video calls through the gTalk app. I haven't found many conversations about that function and whether or not it works in any of the ROMs.

Default Can't Root Replacement TB since 2.11.605.9 OTA

My previous TB was rooted using Revoltionary method. I received my new replacement phone and before I knew it I had downloaded 2.11.605.9 OTA. I have since tried every rooting method I've been able to find, but have in every try failed. Each time I get an error in adb after entering commands to copy files. Attached is my latest try and results. Does anybody know what I can do to get around this and edit the bootloader?
Thanks!

Part of the update was patching the exploit used by Revolutionary. Hence all the warnings about this.

Fortunately, it seems you can go back to 605.5 and Revolutionary will work.

If you want a stock, rooted ROM, there are a couple for the new update. Or you could try any number of the Sense based ROM's, that wont prompt the updates.

Yes, downgrade to 605.5 and then run revolutionary!
