    I removed Dolphin HD browser and re-installed it again.

    I went to CNN.com website and click on a video and at first it gave me an upside down arrow (green), I clicked on it and boom!......crashed. (browser closed)

    This is so frustrated.

    I may re-install update and perhaps this fixes problem. I saved it in my computer and I still have the .zip file in my SD card.

    have you tried clearing your browser cache and anything else that may've been saved from your pre-2.2 browsing?

    yes you should expect everything to work unlike this rom. When the final is ready and bug free HTC will release it. 2.2 is not a big change to the os look but helps speed it up with the new JIT and adds a few other things. Update 3.0 will be the major update to the OS

    Found out what is causing close of browser. Java script. Disable and no more force close. But no flash either.

    HAHA, you say that so certainly as if HTC/Sprint hasn't set a deadline and don't have a timetable to work with.

    Have you ever seen a bug free update??

    Do you really think HTC/Sprint are waiting until 3-4 days before deadline to get their stuff in order? Especially after the last update that probably cost them a LOT of money?

    There is just as good of a chance that the OTA will be the exact same as what many of us are playing with now as there is that there will be anything significant changed on it.

    or you just panicked for no reason since we all said either ours werent affected or they were then started working finally. You seem a bit impatient.

    you know, people were soooo excited about this manual update. people were rude to others for asking how to install it and even mocked people who couldnt. people mocked those who shyed away from installing it because it could be buggy and then what...some found it to be buggy and now you all forgot you were talking about how stupid everyone was for not installing only a handful of hours ago. seems kind of stupid to me. If my phone breaks so be it, I made a decision to install an update that was not actively backed by either sprint or htc thus I must accept consequences...luckily for me I havent experienced all the problems others have. I also dont have some of the crap others have downloaded downloaded onto my evo. Either way I just think its hilarious how QUICKLY people changed their perspective without any acknowledgement to the belief they held only hours ago. Very smug of you guys. Not all, but some of you.

    I was able to get my camera to work by flipping on my LED light app, once i flipped it on, the camera/camcorder started working instantly.

    Overall impressions after the update, a day later:

    No major changes to SenseUI. Was hoping for some tweaks, but like someone else said, the UI will probably get more attention in the 3.0 update whenever that comes.

    Overall performance has improved dramatically. Not that it was ever horrible on the EVO, but the phone is so much snappier. Menus scroll smoother and keyboard typing improved incredibly (portrait).

    A lot of nice minor updates to settings menus.

    +1 for the calculator Widgets.

    Camera/video apps work so much better. Overall, quicker and better picture quality.

    i did the right instructions....the phone was bricked. i pulled the battery 3 times and it did the same thing. took it to sprint and they swapped it out with a new one.

    Really sorry for your woes on this one, but way happy you were made whole in the end.

    I was following your trouble as you posted it, but it never occurred to me to PM you at the time. The outcome probably wouldn't have been different, but I think it might've looked to you like no one was trying to respond to you real time, and that wasn't so.

    Given that yours was the only one bricked, so far as I know, then maybe we just have to accept that as the pathological case. Bummer tho, as that was an I/O model if I read your posts right.

    C'est la vie, no?

    There's a rooted rom for this out already. You might try the latest unEVOked and see if that works. If so, there's your gateway - I _think_.

    Yeah, agreed.

    I think there some cache somewhere that doesn't clear out right away.

    I think this why when others do the full factory reset everything just works right away.

    No big deal, I chose to just wait it out - too much to re-do and re-enter.

    I did update to 2.2 and everything seems to be working fine. When I was checking with Android 2.2 documentation from Google, I find that

    " Gallery allows you to peek into picture stacks using a zoom gesture.

    Camera onscreen buttons provide easy access to a new UI for controling zoom, flash, white balance, geo-tagging, focus and exposure. Camcorder also provides an easy way to set video size/quality for MMS and YouTube.

    With the LED flash now enabled for the Camcorder, videos can be shot at night or in low light settings."

    While the LED flash is enabled for the camcorder I am not seeing the the change in the Gallery and also the new UI for the camera.

    Can anyone help me understand this.

    Thank you

    Raj
