    After upgrading to 2.1 (official) my contacts (synced from Exchange server) display as first name last name rather than last name, first name. Can't find a setting to change how they are displayed. Thanks.

    has anyone had an issue since the update with the phone going into a state where the screen is black(asleep) and the phone cannot be woken up or powered on except by removal of the battery? I've had it happen 4 times since I updated 24 hours ago.

    I can't really tell if my battery life has improved or not with the 2.1 release. Does your's seem to drop from 100% to 90% rather quickly? Mine does, then from there on, slowly goes down by 10% until it's dead, if I let it go that long.

    I installed 2.1 on my Moment. So now if I wanna root, what do I do? Do I have to re-flash??:thinking:

    2.1 for me is so far so good.

    Hasn't been that easy. I have been trying to accomplish this all weekend long, and now my phone doesn't work at all after it said udpate complete. I now have a white screen and it says in red letters at the top, "cannot find jpg or png!"

    Now I have a useless phone.

    first you must flash this
    you can find it here:

    Official Android DE03 2.1 with SDX custom recovery and BEYOND!

    then once that has been done

    put v7 root in the sd card
    you can find it here:

    Android Files

    turn off phone and then boot recovery you just flashed by pressing the volume down, green button, and red button down and the recovery utility will pop up then Select Apply Update .zip from Menu Select joeykrim-SDX-a2.1-root-v7.zip
    Apply and Reboot

    I have had the power-on problem too. Hope there's a fix coming out soon. I think what happened is that Sprint decided to release DD03 instead of DD10 now so we'd stop complaining. I'm relieved cause it feels really good to have a screen-reader on my phone again. By the way, was thrilled to be able to register here without help. Usually, I have to get help cause of that little image thingie. Sometimes they don't have audio and sometimes the audio feature doesn't work. Okay, shutting up.

    I have been running DE03 since last night. The battery life improvement is a definite plus in addition to the battery running much cooler.

    I have had two CDMA locks so far. When it happened the first time, I just rebooted, but the second time I tried a different approach. I actually tuned Wi-Fi on and surfed for a few minutes. I then turned WiFi off and was pleasantly surprised to see the EV arrows come back and take over. Lets see if this is a fool proof method to avoid rebooting the phone when it goes into a CDMA lock.

    either something was wrong with the phone to begin with or you must have done something horribly wrong.

    i am not a pro at this i only did this all a week ago.

    I did the official update and the thing just crashes now after start-up. Was working fine last night. Answers anyone. Taking the battery isn't working. Just does it again. Grrr. Just when I'd figured out a way to get the marvin shell learned.

    I've updated to 2.1 and have two quick questions. Is there a way to use something other than Nuance to call via wireless bluetooth headsets and if so, what and how? Also, I am getting the double texts from Handscent and the stock text app, how do I make Handscent the default and stop the double texts? Thanks!

    So if I installed the "official 2.1" update, what bells/whistles am I missing from the other rooted rom's out there, besides live wallpapers?

    On Saturday it stayed on 100% for a couple of hours then slowly dropped throughout the day. Today it dropped to 90% in less then an hour. There was no real difference is how I used the phone Saturday vs today. Yesterday the phone was in airplane mode most of the day, so the results are meaningless.

    I have a technical question about upgrading to Android 2.1 - both my fiancee and myself have the Moment, and last night we upgraded both phones.

    My phone is running like a dream and I am loving the new features. His phone, however has some quirky things going on. The browser crashes whenever you visit Google's homepage - we figured out that you have to disable "find location" to fix that. But he is also having some goofy things going on with his keyboard (the letter "a" won't work!). We upgraded from the same computer - so I am wondering if something with the update didn't import quite right.

    My question is this - is it safe for us to reflash the Android 2.1 system to his phone? Do we have to revert it back to factory settings (1.6) before we do that?

    Funker, I also would like another option for voice dialing, can't help you there.

    As for Handcent, go to the stock messaging app and select>Menu>Settings. Un-check "auto retrieve" and also un-check "notifications". If you get the pop up that when you try to send a text that says something like "Which program would you like to use for this action" check the box on the bottom and select Handcent.
