    Hello All,

    Im kinda new to all of this modding malarky, but im getting slightly fed up of waiting for the update for us in the UK, T-Mobile won't give up on anything and i'd like to take advantage of some of the new features RC33 brings us.

    What i was wondering was, if i was to upgrade with the jacked US version of RC33 would it have any effects of service on the UK style phone at all??

    Hope you can help

    The main problem is the MyFaves app that the us version contains. It either uses data or is sending sms's constantly in the background. This has the potential to run up your bill.

    Can't you just remove the MyFaves app?

    I recieved the RC9 update this morning in the UK so you might as well wait as it is clearly rolling through England at the moment

    This is AMAZING news. I only just got my G1 yesterday aswell!

    How does it work exactly will it just popup on your screen saying an update is available?

    It popped up and said there was a system update available and did I want to accept and that I wouldnt be able to make emergency calls whilst it updates

    as far as i know its much the same as rooting in the first place, flash DREAIMG.NBH (RC7) then OTA update to RC8/RC9.

    Is there anything added to or missing from the US update?

    All Ive noticed so far is that if you press and hold on an MMS it gives you an option to save to your SD...

    There's an extra option in my settings to "check for updates"...

    And when I uninstalled a game earlier it told me it had saved my information and that if I wished to download the app again I would not need to re-purchase it...

    Im not even sure what changes I should be looking for, those are just the ones ive noticed :eek:

    voice search on the google web search widget?

    From what I heard, the google voice engine has problems with the english accent.
