    I totally agree, I installed the fix tonight and the difference is very noticeable.

    For example when I previously used Aldiko Ebook Reader to open a book it would literally take one or two minutes to do so.... Now it's instant :D. Most other things seem just that bit snappier too.

    I concur.

    I went from frustration using 2.1-update 1 Eclair to being quite happy with 2.2 Froyo.

    Though I think we can expand on your post a bit more here so maybe I or other people could learn a bit more about the changes?

    I went from ECLAIR.ZSJH1 (2.1-update 1) to FROYO.ZSJPD (2.2)

    Pros:
    - SMS notification bug seems to have been fixed (when you recieve SMS messages, the notification message doesn't randomly select a sender name to show you)
    - Seems generally more stable. It has yet to randomly hang/crash/reboot on me for no reason
    - Without lag fix, it seems okay usable, faster than stock 2.1-update 1 SGS w/o lag fix
    - GPS seems to work for me fairly well and no problems using Wi-Fi thus far
    - Battery life has generally improved for me. My average of 8-9 hour daytime usage went up to roughly 13 hours. (Just running around on an average day doing what I normally do)
    - Updated apps (Stock browser, TouchWiz, Market, Youtube)
    - New apps (Adobe Flash, Skype, Better usage reporting and associated apps)
    - Additional functions/features such as built in tethering and sharing internet (haven't used it, but nice to know I don't need to download an app for it)
    - The text insert/edit cursor is a nice addition (though at times buggy)
    - Google voice recognition. I never noticed it before, but I noticed it now! I hope this improves. I like being able to talk instead of typing my SMS messages.
    - I love how the contact list allows for GROUPS now. I can choose which contacts to show up based on the labels I applied to them in my Google contacts

    Cons:
    - Even though Quadrant reports a stock speed increase from 2.1->2.2 Post-lag fix, I'm scoring much less than what I was scoring with 2.1-update post lag fix (Though the numbers don't really matter too much)
    - I find it is a CON that I still need to apply a lag fix to correct a problem Samsung should've corrected themselves.
    - Maybe region specific. I seem to have additional bloatware now on my phone. Anybody else end up with an app called 'Press Reader'? I don't want to remove it yet, waiting to see what it does. Clicking on it pops up a 'Service will be available soon' message.
    - A bit more complicated to root, and actually had some difficulty applying the lag fix a few times (OCLF would fail and I would end up losing that space in the data folder. Had to try 3 times for it to work. Each time from a factory reset, so I couldn't explain why it worked the last time and not the first few times) This isn't a big issue, but just makes novices read more.
    - Some of my old programs are lagging. I have My Paper Plane 2 installed and it didn't lag for me in 2.1, but now the graphics/screen would mysteriously lag.
    - Swype prediction seems odd. ECLAIR.ZSJH1 had swype v1.58.33.7802. FROYO.ZSJPD has 2.7.49.12613. Even playing with the settings, I haven't been able to have the same high accuracy prediction I had in 2.1. I don't know what's changed, and even after such a big version jump, why can't I remove words from the built in dictionary? I hate having '2morrow' randomly come out when I just want the number '2'. The swype tracing also seems laggier to me. Anyone else?
    - the Text editing cursor sometimes jumps around and inserts words in weird ways. Often when I double tap to select a word and I write to replace it, it'll just insert in between the word making me delete the whole mess anyway.

    2.2 should be available through Kies, the root (z4root) and lag fix are both on the market.

    Hi TechGrin,

    Would you help me in giving me a link as to where I can get the lag fix for 2.2 please. I have tried using the update.zip method, where you copy and paste the update.zip into the root folder of your phone and it failed.

    I have searched a bit but couldn't find any that works.

    Thanks
