    Firstly, does anyone know how/when the vibrant can get flash? I've read about v2.2 supporting it, but I don't think it's out yet. If you can install flash on the Vibrant, and anyone tell me how, or direct me to a link that says how?

    Secondly, there's one thing that has really been irking me about the media player.

    The interface when the media player is vertical works great for me, but if the player goes horizontal the interface switches from a track listing to an album listing (looks like a bunch of CDs all in a row).

    Is there a way to disable album listing you get when the phone is horizontally? It's really annoying to pick up my media player to change the track, and have it switch to album mode and back again because I jostled it enough to make it think it was laid on its side. This is especially annoying while running on a treadmill - the back and forth motion makes it switch between modes every single time I pick it up.

    If anyone knows of a way to turn off the horizontal album mode, or at the very least a way to make it manually activated only, that would help me out.

    The recent OTA update (JI6) addresses the video player issue... It causes it to look similar no matter what direction.


    As for Flash, you cannot have Flash without 2.2. So, you'll have to wait until it's released.


    In the meantime, the Skyfire web browser supports Flash Video on many sites (No, you can't watch Hulu)

    You can get it. There are Froyo custom roms based on the international version, but there's a few things screwy about it such as 3.5mm headphone jack not working properly.

    Can you give me more information about this OTA update (J16)? Where to get it, how to put it on my phone, what it does, etc.
