    So I've been working with the latest Hero 2.1 RUU for a few days now and have compiled a list of issues that I and others have seen. It seems that this is probably just another test RUU rather than the final release, but I thought it might be helpful for those still on the fence about installing it or waiting for the official to see a list of the issues. That way they can make an informed decision. If you have experienced other issues, add them to the list.

    Please remember, this thread is for reporting issues with the latest 2.1 RUU leak only. If you have issues with the previous leak, stock 1.5, or a custom rom, this is the wrong thread.


    Issues:

    Landscape keyboard lag
    Dialer lag
    Bluetooth force close
    Camera options remain in landscape mode
    Lag in the Stock Messaging App
    Trackball and Button lights lag after unlock
    Trackball and button lights stay lit during video playback
    Accelerometer not triggering orientation shift in some apps (i.e. barcode scanner)

    • Old lockscreen from 1.5 still on the 2.1 leak

    I have no dialer lag whatsoever. The 1.5 version was MUCH slower.

    I have 2.1 - update 1
    software number 2.20.651.1

    I got it from a buddy and this thing keeps rebooting....everything about the phone part of this Hero is hosed. Dialing is slow, audio and mic don't work most of the time, and the phone reboots ALL the time.

    I need to get this back to a working phone. I asked in an earlier thread, but need a pointer to get back to square one easily. Thanks

    Please read the original poster's comment. Your question is regarding an older leak/ROM and doesn't pertain to this thread.

    Im gona post some comments next to your original issues:

    Landscape keyboard lag(Also experiencing portrait mode lag as well.)
    Dialer lag (Only sometimes this happens to me. Alsmost seems normal from 1.5...
    Trackball and Button lights lag after unlock (Both this issue and the one below I have had some similar issues. I havent paid attention to what I do when it happens, but it seems like my Trackball and button lights flicker ever so often.
    Trackball and button lights stay lit during video playback

    Also, with Sense Contacts box widget, at random times, when it loads, or when I try to use it, Sense UI restarts itsself I noticed.

    Altho I am currently running LauncherPro Beta, and runs VERY smooth. I noticed this improves Dialer Lag (or it could just be me.. lol) I know were talking about default settings, like Sense UI, but that just shows that Sense still needs some tweaking here and there.

    Let me clarify when I said I can't find any issues at all. My phone is running better than stock 1.5 and nothing is absolutely broken like some things in the original test leak and all of the PRI issues and such because of the Eris leak. No MMS problems, although I never had them before. Youtube is actually working instead of just playing like 1 out of ten videos. I actually finally can get apps like google goggles. All in in I all I'm glad I updated when I did. I'm happy considering that this is still a Hero(which my daughter will soon own), and not an EVO(which I'm anticipating a lot more than I was the 2.1 update.)

    Of course. Dont get me wrong. On an OVER ALL scale of the 2.1 performance, I love it WAY more than 1.5, and at quick glance, has nearly no bugs, or issues. But being picky, and watching all the small details, thats when certain things still become a factor.

    what bothers me most about thi update is that the button and trackball light stay on during video playback...in the dark its cso annoying...but like previous users have said, im glad i upgraded...youtube works, ts faster, and snappier. another small thing iver noticed is that when i restart my phone the apps list goes back to icon mode instead of list...oh wellllll....evo right around the corner. hoping to upgrade to legit version then sell this thing on ebay or craigslist

    One thing that I noticed the last couple of days on the newest RUU is that Gmail stops pushing emails. A power cycle of the phone seems to fix it for a short bit, but then again back to not pushing out emails. I can refresh in the inbox and all email comes though though.

    I've run into a new bug with the leak. I turned my phone off not too long ago and now when I make a phone call my phone vibrates for like a second before calling out. I doubt this is something in the settings as I have never had this happen before. I've tried looking in the settings, thinking maybe I hit something random in the settings, but I don't recall changing anything prior to powering off. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Yep, a quick buzz for outgoing calls. I have noticed that as well.

    I read somewhere that this "vibrate on connection" is new with 2.1. A quick search didn't find the details....Maybe someone else can find it or confirm?

    I have to say there still alot of lag with the messenger app as well as missing apps in the market place.

    Has anyone else noticed that the screen does not dim when you're in a darker room? I have auto-dim enabled.

    Good. Still weird as it didn't start on my phone until today, I made sure to make phone calls as soon as I updated. Gotta say I'm not the biggest fan of this as most of the time I'm in a rush when making calls from contacts and immediately put the phone to my ear. Today has been a bit jarring lol.

    Vibrate on connect is new, Its to let you know your call connected. As for dimming, mines dimming just fine.

    Only problem Im having is the apps in the market but Ive got all my apps backed up so no big deal really. Plus theyll be there soon.

    Just dumped the Moment for the Hero and wow what a drastic improvement.

    Well hopefully Sprint leaked this so you guys would find all the bugs for them. Maybe they will be fixed when the final comes out.

    The only problem I have encountered with the 2.1 leak is my phone doesn't ring with every phone call. I've missed a dozen calls now and have to Reboot it to get it to ring again and then after one or two calls it stops again.

    In reference to the above post, does anyone know if the slot cycle index change carries over to the leaked 2.1?

    this buzz is probably part of the upgrade. it allows u to know when phone has dialed out instead of just looking at it
