    You can also rotate the browser in all directions. Not just to the one side.

    So many people bickering instead of tryin to be helpful adding to the pages of non-sense! lol Anyways, got Froyo fine but, seems the FPS cap wasnt unlocked? Everything DOES seem smoother (scrolling mainly) and faster but, FPS2D Still showing an average of 28-29fps. Comments?

    The person who leaked it being fired, yes possibly, but HTC at no point said this update was for the public to download. Maybe you were too anxious and thought just because it was "accessible" meant it was "yours". There's a huge difference in what you WANT and what is GIVEN to you. Downloading without consent is what you did.

    I thought apps needed to be specially coded to run from the SD card?

    Now I think you're just trolling. You seem to be hitting on EVERY thing you can find. I just loaded up Qik, rear camera works, Front camera works. Video recording works. No hiccups or anything.

    Yea I emailed HTC earlier about it asking if Froyo removes the limit. Got one of those template emails about it being a hardware lock blah blah.

    Peace,

    did the update and i now have Froyo--not a party pooper but other than speeding up the phone, a few camera tweeks and extra apps im not to impressed :(
    from what I've seen there were no real changes made to SENSE---the twitter app (which i love) still does not have a Trending Topic option, the weather (after sliding unlock) doesnt load immediately like the HTC HD2 (maybe like a 2-3 delay) and no real modifications to the HTC Calendar...
    Dont get me wrong---im glad I downloaded---just not all that impressed

    HD Browser works because it's not loading flash content.

    It giving me an upside down arrow in ads and in videos. And if I click a flash video, browser crashes.

    Camera works fine, tested flash, good to go. Qik - all good. The only thing that blew up on mine is DroidX keyboard and Swype. I'll reinstalled Swype and I'll use that till droidX or similar is good to go on Froyo.

    If you have a lot of customization, maybe try hard reset before the upgrade.

    the update was on HTC's website, no one was 'emailed' it....

    the HTC link was taken down and a warning that it isn't 'official' yet has been posted.

    however, you can still get it from xda.

    I'm curious to know about this, is it really snappier or just "different"?

    When they made it publicly accessible, they implied consent. That is the entire purpose of security permissions.

    Are you seriously this daft?

    Froyo must be self-healing, because my camera apps just magically started working again.

    It says to install the update.zip file into the root folder of your SD card. Problem is that I have no root folder on my SD card. I looked in Astro as well, and can't find it. Can I just create a folder named root?

    Just put it on your card and not in any specific folder. Basically its its own folder.

    Good question. It seems faster. I tried a few apps that seemed slow previously (e.g. Camera, Settings-Applications, barcode scanner) and they seem quicker. But it's hard to tell unless I have an Evo 2.1 to compare. I should have video taped some things beforehand. I don't notice any lag in scrolling (but I only noticed minimal before).

    Using linpack, my mflops when from about 6 (IIRC) to 38 now.

    LOL! Don't even start the conversation of security permissions when involving a leaked link from an unidentified source.

    Anyways, back to the thread, glad your camera works now

    For the LAST time.

    IT WAS ON HTC's OFFICIAL WEBSITE!
