    Wow - me too. Plus my wife looked prettier, and my son seemed smarter. ;)

    Sorry - I'm being a smartaxx. :) No - didn't notice any change in the screen.

    The only part that scared me was the first reboot after the update...took a really long time. Reboots since then (tried a couple to be sure) seem as fast as before the update.

    Will updates in the future have to be done the same way after doing this update? (ex. Upgrade to Android 2.1 in Jan)

    I haven't seen anyone post about problems w/the camera. Try power-cycling the phone.

    You can't go back, as far as I understand...once you've updated that's it (unless you rooted the phone back to 2.0, but I wouldn't suggest that...)

    Thanks! Tried with the Mac first and it didn't work, so I switched the the PC. That is the only time I plan on saying that.

    To show the new Unlock/Lock screen remove the old unlock pattern:

    SETTINGS > location and security > Uncheck "require pattern". You should now see the new unlock. :D

    Just updated from 2.0, works just fine, new lock screen is nice displays the time. Unlock screen looks a little different, not bad though.

    Loving this. Thank you. Seriously took me like a total of 4 minutes from download to complete reboot. Just don't be scared of it, that's all. When you're unsure of something, that's when you break it.

    Because I wanted to show the new lock/unlock screen, and I'm not going to swap out my BG for a default one just to take a screen cap... Thanks I'll relay the compliments.

    when you save it, its gonna ask u where you want to save it, and the file name. change it to update and go from there. no need to go back and rename it. All you'll have to do after that is move it to the root directory on the SD card. i use astro file manager.
