    I'm doing this now. I absolutely cannot wait any longer for cupcake. It was hard enough forcing myself to wait this long, only to wake up to it being pushed back.

    Thanks for the tip!

    It worked for me too. I tested A2DP, auto-rotate, VK, video all works!

    works great and very easy, but what happens when the update comes out next week? will wee still get it? or do we have to do some sort of update ourselves?

    Considering it is an official 1.5 UK update, the system will recognize you as already updated. You have two options.
    1 when the update is out, you go back to rc33 and update to the US 1.5
    2 wait for a week after the official US 1.5 update and someone will post the file for the same... just download and do what you just did!!!

    Anyone else notice their Contacts are empty after the update to UK 1.5? I was hoping a reboot would solve, but it has not.

    I should have waited a bit longer for others to discover this potential issue... :cool:

    Factory reset did eventually restore contacts. Perhaps that takes a bit longer to sync and would have eventually appeared without intervention. Note: Before the factory reset I was seeing a "Business Contacts is Empty" message.

    Awesome! Works great, I had to wait about 20 minutes before it automatically synced my contacts.

    working fine here.

    to get your stuff to sync right away...

    menu>settings>Data Synchronization
    uncheck/check your auto sync
    or uncheck/check individual entities at the bottom.
    worked right away for all of my stuff. No waiting

    i love the aesthetic stuff. the notification pane looks nice, the main app menu slider looks nice. and the smallest thing, is huge for me...the new 'Browser' icon. that old thing just bugged me. hah

    hope i/we have no issues with this. i've received emails fine so far. no calls or texts though have been tried.

    had a ton of apps to update. and the new 'Toggle Settings' for cupcake is trick. my 'power manager' wont work though. i didnt use that much anymore anyways. toggle has all the same stuff.

    i love the keyboard and predictive text stuff with the keyboard, but the std messaging thing is so ugly and i can barely tell the sent/received messages apart. that needs an appearance upgrade badly. im torn between chomp and std now. guess ill use std when i need to use the onscreen for some reason, and chomp the most cuz the full keyboard is fine.

    Not sure, but it seems my chomp is using the cupcake keyboard now. After I updated chomp the keyboard changed, complete with the predictive text and all.
    So far, text, calls and emails work fine. Browser works, app store works. Camera seems speedier, with an on screen shutter trigger now which I like.

    Will test more tomorrow but so far it's been flawless.

    i don't know about you guys, but my UK 1.5 doesn't have IM & Amazon MP3, not even in the Market. For now, I have to use Palringo as my main IM software

    Yes, people reported that earlier in this thread. While UK 1.5 doesn't have the multi-provider IM app we have in the USA, note that you can find Google Talk in the screen of all programs and place it on your desktop. I tried eBuddy but had some periodic crashes of that app and just pefer the simplicity of Google Talk anyway.

    yes, i didnt even try that last night, thanks.

    my 'scoreboard' app doesnt work correctly now. it works fine, but just a small hiccup somehow in the formating of stuff, it doesnt fit right and its all spaced out. oh well. few other apps are unreliable and stuff, they will all just need 1.5 updates or replacements. im diggin it though

    I'd recommend using Meebo IM (since this update erases the USA standard multi IM client app) they just updated it and it's now probably my personal favorite IM tool. even better than ebuddy

    I've mirrored the link here:

    Feel free to download it from there as it should download faster.

    works great, mp3 go to the amazon web site download downloader on computer, once songs downloaded move them to your sd card.

    yes I am dumb, someone on another forum sent me to the site to download the amazon app. much better.
