    I just unlocked to my Centura to find that a system update is available. It took me by surprise. Maybe this fixes the time issue? I don't know if this is a Straight Talk only update or if TracFone and Net10 is also included. I'm installing it now.

    It finished and said it updated 55 apps, and it looks like there is also a new kernel version.

    Interesting. Did it reinstall system apps and remove all of yours?

    Nope. Everything is exactly the same, even the Google apps I had disabled are still disabled.

    Thanks for posting this! Makes me very excited. My kernel is one letter off from yours, now. I am hyped and cant wait til it gets to mine.. if it does. Let us know if you see any changes and if you can.. find something that tella your ram amount? Am hoping it frees up more than 396t mb total out of the advertised 512mb. Thanks man.

    No problem, I'm always excited about updates lol. You could always go to system system settings, about phone and manually check for the update. The ram is still the same but I'm thinking the missing ram is maybe reserved for the OS and the reported ram is just for apps. I could be wrong but It seems like I've read this somewhere about another phone.

    I just found the post I was referring to. It's about the Epic 4G but supposedly Android uses that missing RAM for the cache.

    Yeah I was hoping they optimized and freed up some available ram. Well.. I will be checking for updates often.

    It just dawned on me that the notification area hasn't had any lag since the update. Until now it seems as every other time I pulled it down it would take 30 seconds for anything to appear. Yesterday and today it's been instant every time. In could just be a coincidence though.

    Mine does the same thing every now and then. Sometimes more frequently than others. I wonder when they plan on sending the update my way lol.

    Hopefully soon, my wife is in SC right now and she hasn't gotten it yet either.

    So far nothing worse here, but then again there are many features of this phone I don't even use.

    Oh well...hopefully it will be in a future update, unless it's a hardware problem.

    I think the notification bar lag going away has nothing to do with the update, since my wife got the update today and she still has the lag. I now believe it's because I cleared the system cache last week. Also there's more info in the time problem thread.

    My clock fix was this --

    system settings > date and time
    Checkmark - automatic date & time

    Select your time zone

    Get an app titled ClockSync
    install ClockSync

    You should be good to go

    After rooting I had McTweek installed and it was an app that, even with the fixes I previously mentioned, caused problems with my time.

    When I would loose time it was always 5 hours. So clearly the phone was handshaking with a network that was 5 hours difference.

    Hope it fixes your time problem beause it fixed mine (at least so far).
