    Understand many people have problem with leaked patch of 2.1 working with google voice. Do any of these roms address this issue? Thinking of taking the leap but need my GV! Thanks

    char561, what rom are you using? I've tried the original 2.1root rom, vanilladroid, and kaoslegendary... My Google Voice didn't work right with any of the 3... The issue the OP is probably talking about (correct me if I'm wrong) is that when you call someone using Google Voice, your regular cell number shows up instead of the Google Voice number. I can receive calls, send/receive texts with Google Voice, but outgoing calls show my regular number instead of my GV Number.

    Supposedly the new version of 2.1 that just leaked out today has a fix for the Google Voice issue, along with a bunch of other fixes. Maybe some of the devs will come out with a rom using it soon :-D haha. But I'm happy with my phone for now lol.

    The rom has never mattered with that one. I did it with the 2.1 and the vanilla and the aloysius roms

    Thanks char561. Much appreciated. It says "This section is under construction at the moment" on thefuzz4.net, so I'll check back on there. Unless you have the apk and want to share it? I just have the Google Voice app from the Market.

    Sweet thanks! This one's working. Had to uninstall the other one I had, because it said "update available" as soon as I installed the one you sent me over the one I had previously installed.

    (FYI for anyone who decides to install this one, just uninstall the Google Voice app you currently have first and then install this other one... I think it's just an older version of the current Google Voice App, which actually works).
