    My Sprint Navigator doesn't work after Froyo on my Epic 4G.

    Anyone else see this?

    I did download that Froyo .zip file a few weeks ago and applied it. I’ve had a few force closes, love lots of the updates and annoyed by only a few others, otherwise it has been a great experience overall. My only concern is I don’t want my phone skipped over when the official update comes out (which I assume will come with more tweaks and fixes), and what I’m reading sounds like it will. Can someone confirm this? If it is true, can someone explain how I can go back to 2.1 without losing any data? My phone is not rooted.
