    Thank you for looking into it.If I get tired of the zooming issue,& can't narrow down the cause,I may just do the dreaded FDR & see if that clears it up.

    Either way,I'll post back here & give an update.

    Once again,thanks for all your efforts.:D

    I dont know if this an issue or not but I have noticed that when a notification has arrived the blue LED is not as bright anymore when flashing and when charging when the phone is on but screen off the red LED is not as bright as before the update.

    Anyone else?

    Light sensors are now used to determine if the LED needs to be bright or not. The darker the environment, the darker the light

    It has started working now, even with Rob - not sure why it wasn't previously, although I've done some linking of contacts so perhaps your theory was right. It doesn't work, however, if you say "text Rob hello". It seems to ignore single word texts!

    Ha! Perhaps that's why..!

    I seem to get better battery life now (google now off) and also clearly better wifi signal, I used to get 1 bar upstairs always but now I almost always get 3 bars and occasionally 2..

    A couple of likes:

    Blocking Mode: you can send all calls to voice mail for any period of time (great for meetings) or if you like to leave you phone on over night (for the alarm), but don't want to be disturbed. You can set up a list of important callers that can still get in contact with you (one thing I sorely miss since my blackberry days)

    Battery life is exactly the same (as I have google now enabled) I get about 8-10 hrs of between charges with moderate to heavy use.

    of course I love Google now

    mine is doing the same thing.

    two other issues I have since installing JB

    1) Swype doesn't auto space any longer randomly. it's set to auto space and auto capitalize. does neither now sporadically.

    2) my major complaint - the screen has tons of lag when scrolling up and down the settings menu from the home screen, and some graphic heavy games like Dead Trigger now have major graphics issues. like a wavy layered image full screen that looks like stop motion photography.

    I've since deleted Dead Trigger and am going to download it again to see if the problem continues.

    btw I'm stock, Sprint. I pushed JB manually using QBKing77's link/instructions.



    anyone else having these problems?

    wtf?

    I re-flashed the update (from another source),& still have the exaggerated ZOOM issues.I'm hoping there's a bug fix for this soon.

    Until then,I'll just avoid using the apps that have the ZOOM issue (stock browser,the PHANDROID application & the official e-Bay application).

    hi all,

    was really looking forward to getting this update - all that project butter stuff and all - but not very impressed so far :(

    some of my widgets cause phone to reboot - could be widget issue im guessing
    phone animation still isnt as good/smooth/fast as it should be imo - this isnt a desire after all

    cant download anything from market :/

    sorry - bit of a rant thread i know - but think google+sammy need to do better than this to fight off the iphones! :D

    cheers

    Might be easier to just boot into stock recovery and wipe data/cache there
