    What are you going to use to do a data backup? Are you rooted?

    So far I am running ok with the update. I saw in the list of updates that there is an Auto Portrait and Sightseeing mode in the camera app. I looked everywhere and can't seem to find them. Am I missing it somewhere or wasn't it included.

    Kinda have a weird problem here, seems with the new update every notification/text comes with vibrate and I can't seem to find a setting to turn on/off notification vibrate. Any ideas how to change that now? And no I don't have the ringer turned down to vibrate.

    Mine did the same.In text app. Goto Menu-Settings-Notifications. There is a spot to uncheck vibrate.

    Knew it had to be in there somewhere, and knew someone on here has dug around enough to find it

    And it looks like you have to do it in EVERY app that has vibrate on alerts

    on the Foxfi site, they have always said NOT to update to JB. This is one reason why I have held off on the JB install. I have used FoxFi on the xoom and it has come in handy a time or two.

    Agree, your only recourse is to root, or head to xda and find ICS or pay for the hot spot feature.. :p

    I'm having the issue too. It was happening to me in the past, then I had an update two months ago and it corrected it. Now it's happeneing again.

    I'm also having the issue when playing a voicemail. The screen close black with the exception of the notification bar. I have to close the app to get out of it

    Many of the custom Roms me tion a proximity sensor fix, so it very well may be a software bug

    I just noticed this as well, which i kinda hate, since i had a wallpaper that went across all the screens. So, i figured i would go get a new wallpaper that was only sized for one screen. I found a nice one that was sized 720 x 1280, and then went to set it as my wallpaper, but they left the wallpaper cropping tool thinking it is resizing for a 1440 x 1280 screen size. I guess no one caught that in testing. You can't use a 720 x 1280 image, you have to select an image that is 1440 x 1280, and then you can only see the center part.

    Other than that, i am liking the update.

    Not sure if I want to update. Sound on camera isn't muted when phone is muted... Proximity sensor issues... Navigation issues...

    The phone shutter sound is annoying.

    No issues with proximity sensor for me on two phone.

    No navigation issues to report yet either.

    Since you're rooted...

    Go with one of the Mean roms for the best camera you'll find, imo. Plus, no shutter sound.

    I made a decision a while back to not use 3rd party ROMs, at least for a while anyway. I'm quite happy with the new rooted JB ROM though.. this thing is fantastic!

    It sure would be nice if it were as simple as the camera shutter sound file being somewhere where we could simply delete it for silenced camera action w/o any sort of issues as a result.

    No such luck, it's baked into the app, so far as I know.

    Yeah, that's the way it's always been. I'm just saying that it would be nice if it were that simple. I just can't believe that something as simple as this can't be user defined due to pressure from the government because of a few perverts. There are COUNTLESS reasons for muting your shutter sound that aren't nefarious and there's no reason we should all be punished because of the acts of a few. Just a frustrating reminder that we aren't as free as we like to think we are.

    Why did they have to do such an annoying change?
  19. EarlyMon

    EarlyMon The PearlyMon Moderator

    Did it change? I thought I modded mine for this back at release.

    They say that in some places it's illegal, depending on use, a stalker law.

    I've looked around and there are a few stealth camera apps. Though I'm not sure if they work properly with JB

    what happens if you plug in headphones and attempt to take a photo? will this silence it or does it still sound even with headphones plugged in?

    I use Handcent and have gotten several myself. I blocked it through handcent but I wasn't sure what it was...

  23. omiller315

    Good thought. I just tested and it comes out in the headphones, so I guess that is one work around. It's a pain if I want to take a photo of a sleeping pet up close and not scare the crap out of them.

    Now I can see a company making a small plug(like your super small usb plug for wireless mouse) and marketing it as a camera silencer.. Wait. maybe I need to patent that and give half to marctronixx :)

    I'm upset about FoxFi too I got the latest version and I got the Sprint hotspot thing too. I don't use it much but tonight I am spending the nightat a casino hotel and figured instead of gambling all night I can watch Netflix on the tablet cause there wifi cost. But now it doesn't work but I didn't use it that much anyway to where I am sorry I upgraded to JB cause I love having JB. So I'll live without it. Someone on XDA said there working on a fix in the next update.

    I use to take my phone off charge at 430 am every day and it would last till 10pm. Afterthe jb update I cant even get through half a day what gives? I have changed nothing. I haven't installed any new apps just did the updare. I'm pretty disappointed in that regard. With that said though my evo now runs like a kid with ADHD lol

    and this is with the new power save on
