    First, a fix for the audio quality in AAC+ streams (Pandora, etc) has been commited to the Froyo branch:

    android.git.kernel.org Git - platform/frameworks/base.git/commit

    The bug originally filed for reference (see comment 140 for Google's acknowledgment that the above commit is the fix):

    Issue 9308 - android - eaac+ and aac+ decoding sound quality problems (Android 2.2) - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Just letting you all know that we should see a fix incoming, and for Froyo. As to WHEN we'll see this is unknown (especially with the lag on patches through HTC), but it is on the way.

    Pandora is working fine, however it no longer has the same clarity/quality as before 2.2. This is not somethin that will affect some users only, it affects every froyo unit, from every manufacturer.

    *** I should have said it affects every froyo unit only, no real way to be sure that other mfgs pending releases wont have the correction made

    While i am happy they will send out a patch to fix this issue. I am not happy that this patch will not come straight from google. It will have to go through HTC and Sprint before we get it. So i am thinking it will either never come to us or it will come around christmas. I know i am being negative. But i just know how slow these things are. Google doesnt even have it ready yet.

    So in the meantime we will be stuck listening to crap quality radio. It angers me that Google was made aware of this before they released 2.2 to HTC and yet they did nothing but allow it to come to us without so much as a warning. Google should have expressed what 2.2 does to streaming music so users could have decided if they want to break their music apps to get stuttering flash browsers.

    Like others have said, I want my 2.1 back so i can enjoy my music again. And so that Google Nav program doesnt keep stopping my music and not restarting it every time the weird voiced lady says anything.

    I gave a listen to pandora this morning. Yuck it definitely sounds like garbage. At least I still have Last.fm to work with.

    Dammit it broke the above mentioned. Drove around the block to test and yes whether it's the stock music player or Pandora it stops the music. Not cool!

    I always wanted to make up a date like everyone else does. Just figured I would be one of the first to do so.
