    I see a few threads around that address some things and not others, I can edit my posts when i want so I will make this and we can keep everything organized in the first post. We have 3 categories, bugs, fixes/workarounds, apps issues.

    ###################################################

    Bugs


    • Some report having to login to their google account multiple times
    • Some report not being able to sync facebook contacts to phone
    • After reboot you must sign into your google account again
    • stock browser zooms every page load all the way out, this may be normal behavior though
    • Get more HTC widgets is offline
    • Pictures don't show up in gmail messages, and almost all programs that need to access the the browser fail at doing so.
    • The browser randomly freezes and closes with no force close message.
    • Handcent is having issues with sending texts. In most cases it says that the text failed to send, but the recipient receives it anyway.
    • Any link inside an app does not work. For example, clicking on a pic in a tweet in any twitter app does not work. Using Wapedia to search Wiki does not work. They all give a browser error message asking to reload. Can anyone else confirm this?

    Fixes/workarounds


    • If you want the browser to zoom in the way it used to simply open the browser and menu > more > settings and uncheck Open pages in overview.
    • for txt not sending try a *228 option 2, i would recommended this anyway after the upgrade.
    • for the link in apps being broke, use a 3rd party browser

    Apps that don't show in market and/or don't work

    • Any copy protected apps will not show on the market till vzw sends the update info to google.
    • Google Earth - installed but when launched does nothing.
    • WeatherBug Elite - doesnt show up in market.

    Words of CAUTION
    Don't restore System Settings or anything like that (with mybackup app), as it will screw with the system and mess stuff up.

    ###################################################

    I will try to collect info and add to this as I find it.

    as will I.

    Also, I was able to get my facebook contacts and gmail contacts out of my People section, but when I hit the phone button, the facebook people still show up there. They don't show up under people, but they do when I access the phone. The last thing I want is to accidentally call one of them. Anyone know how to get rid of them from there?

    The WeatherBug Elite issue will apply to all copy protected apps in the Market.

    Confirmed that it zooms out on every page, but that's a 2.x thing and it's that way on the Moto Droid as well. I have the google sign-in issue as well, but I rarely restart my phone.

    Whaaaaa? It's really fast for me.

    Make a "Guinea Pig" section too, Caddy. And post, "try a hard reset or factory reset with 2.1. See if shit hits fan."

    I'm curious. The reason I ask is because maybe AwesomeIT can benefit from it, depending on whether or not he is rolled back to 1.5, stays at 2.1, or simply gets boned and bricks his phone. If he goes back to 1.5, he may be able to reinstall 2.1 and see if something went wrong along the way the first time.

    Not really a bug, but a problem after restoring with MyBackup. Don't restore System Settings or anything like that, as it will screw with the system and mess stuff up, found that out the hard way when I left it go to restore everything overnight. Reflashing 2.1 right now because of it.

    Noticeable difference - When connected to your PC, the menu has changed to mount the card to your computer. If your confused, click the "Charge Only" option from the notifications menu and it gives you options to mount it. It's a little confusing, because it lists "Charge Only" "HTC Sync" and "Disk Drive". It leads you to believe you can do one or the other, and not both. However, if you select disk drive, it still charges.

    I thought I would mention it because at first glance it seems confusing. I prefer the 1.5 method.

    When I first install 2.1 I used my backup to restore everything. BAD IDEA. messes up the HTC Widgets, as in they disappear if you restore everything.

    After second install of 2.1 I had the sign in problem

    After third install, things seem much better but still some issues
    Pure Calendar does not show up in market but all the other Pure products do.
    Google Earth doesn't work but heard that even on the MotoDroid it is very slow. Didn't have it on 1.5 so not a loss plus there is still google maps and navigator that works fine
    For syncing to services, there is a Facebook and Facebook for HTC Sense. First one does not seem to respond
    None of the pictures from gmail contacts are synced. Most pictures from facebook are low res but seem to be slowly updating to hi-res over time. Have to individually link a lot of profiles between services. Not seamless like before

    Besides that, everything runs much much faster and nicer widgets, sense ui work faster and has a view that shows all screens at once.
    Verified apps working : ebuddy , google goggles, maps 4.0, greed, locale, Navigator, Pandora, weatherbug elite(installed from backup)

    Over all I am very very happy :D

    Sounds like a security policy pushed from Exchange. Is this a corporate account?
