    The new app installed is Google Now, and just like the early Google+, it's a bit of a power hog with the default setup.

    Might want to look there first.

    What's the problem with Google now does it sync a lot or is it just always active?

    if you have Facebook installed and have updated it to the latest version (2.0) you will need to go into the settings and change the refresh interval as it has defaulted back to update every 1 hour. As far as the battery life on Jelly Bean it has been the same for me since I've updated (100% Stock Phone) I noticed the change in the Facebook settings and having it update every 1 hour will kill your battery.

    the microphone is to the right of the space bar above the period symbol, long press and it will come up...it seems to be more responsive than before... you also have to long press the smiley button to insert smiley faces now

    all you have to do is cut off a pair of phones you dont use or get a mini jack adapter. you know the ones that allow you to connect a smaller or larger jack?

    What would be sweet would be to make something smaller with a resistor that, when plugged in and used with Tasker or similar, would not only mute the shutter sound but launch the camera app. That would be cool! :smokingsomb:

    Good point. I have the whole adapter kit that came with an extender. Need it small enough to not be obtrusive, but large enough to get a grip on it to remove when needed.

    This is what I need. the little guy from Saw sitting on my phone and plugged into my headphone jack. BTW. Googling 3.5mm plug cover yields alot of results

    http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/621907970/SAW_Jigsaw_Puppet_Jack_Cover_earphone.html

    Just realized though, that these aren't metal, thus probably not tricking the phone into thinking you had headphones plugged in.
    PS: Tried Bluetooth, but I still had shutter sound. Hopefully someone can come up with a headphone toggle via a widget, though I doubt that is even possible.

    My battery was draining fast after the update.
    But yesterday I factory reset it and it seems fine now, even back to normal.
    One thing that did seem to resolve with this update was how hot the phone was getting during navigation. Now it doesn't seem to get hot.

    It's a good idea, but if you leave it on wouldn't you not be able to hear the ringer?

    Also, has anyone tried using a stealth camera app? There is this one available...

    Search the Play Store for silent camera for other choices as well.

    The stealth cameras aren't likely to win you friends, yeah?

    JB upgrade seems to be going well except one major problem. I can't seem to connect to my PC via USB. I choose USB File Sharing and Disk Drive and nothing happens. Any ideas?

    Uninstall and then reinstall the new HTC sync manager, this worked for me.

    It seems this might be the thread to post issues since the JB update. Here are a few things I have noticed/don't like:
    Keyboard changed: symbol button on wrong side now, slows down typing
    Missing mic on stock KB (came back after rebooting)
    Songs skip/crack via Bluetooth in my car now. It's so bad I can't use streaming Bluetooth anymore because it happens multiple times during a song that used to play perfectly before the update.
    When I answer a phone call sometimes the screen goes black before I even put it to my head and then when I move the phone away from my head at the end of a call the screen sometimes does not come back on, I have to press the power button to get the screen on (prox sensor problem all the sudden?). I can see the prox light on sometimes while the screen is black.
    Touch screen is not as responsive to touches. Sometimes I have to mash my finger on the screen to get the phone to detect the touch.
    When I plug the phone into the HTC USB cable and plug it into the port on my car the radio won't detect it anymore. It will say READING USB DRIVE, then disconnect and reconnect and do that over and over. On the phone the charge light will be flashing and the USB Debugging message will appear and disappear over and over. The car reads my flash drive fine so I think it's the phone.
    <edit> also forgot to mention, so far one time I unplugged the wall charger and the phone still showed it was charging. Light was on, battery app said it was charging still. I had to reboot the phone to reset it.

    I've been sounding off to HTC through their support/contact link at htc.com, and I urge people with feature downgrades to do the same.

    I've complained about the update installer not clearing cache, and the new behavior when you plug in to a PC.

    Tell them your story politely and request an update to fix this nonsense asap. If you bought the phone today with your problems with it, would you take it back for another brand? Let them know that you believe that this is affecting buying decisions.

    They won't fix it if we don't speak up.

    Keep the first contact clear and simple, you'll get a case number and a link if you need to add to it.

    Ok, after playing with jb for a few days I had to do a factory reset. I used MyBackup and the restore crashed sense. I had to reset again. Sigh, so I'm not without my important stuff since all of it is backed up by either Google, Dropbox, or my SD card. But I've had to fiddle with all my settings. I lost a two characters I really liked in two separate games. It's all good in the grand scheme of things.

    1. But, I can't seem to find the place to change the clock on my lock screen. I looked under settings>personalize>lock screen and there doesn't seem to be a way to do it like I did it in ics.

    2. Also using Swype to enter text in some text fields on some websites is extremely frustrating now. It's rather buggy. The Sense keyboard has a couple of issues too with entering text into text fields on websites. I use Dolphin Browser.

    Does anyone know anything that might help with those two items?

    Unless that 'friend' is my wife who is in bed trying to sleep while I'm taking pictures of the dogs doing something cute or stuff that I'm listing on Craigslist. This idea that people who want their camera to be silent are ALL perverts needs to stop. It's also a ridiculous notion to think that people who ARE perverts aren't just going to circumvent the stock camera app for their nefarious uses is naive at best. I'm sick of being made to do something because of a few bad apples.
