    This isn't feasible anymore... if we have to blow it out to 8 digits, it's going to take 69.4 days to complete the test...Right now my program can hit 250 urls every 15 seconds, and at 8 digits there are 100,000,000 urls to check.. :(

    Just want to point out that Tversity has iPhone support now. So if you set up Tversity on your PC with your Hulu account information, you can watch your Hulu on your iPhone just like watching it on your TV.

    The problem with the update.zip and using a recovery tool is that a large file is spread out over a larger portion of the memory, small files such as photos have less of a chance of being overwritten, it comes down to probability and the fact that with more data, it is contained in a larger part of the card.

    But anyways... daring enough to risk losing the update?

    So get a lot of people to do it, and just start running it. 69.4 days is worst case scenario If you got 10 people to do it you're down to 7 days, but changes of one of them hitting it soon is good if you split them all at even intervals.

    Of course that depends on you getting 10-20 people to do it. If you could get about 40 people it would definitely be worth it because you'd hit it before Thursday at midnight.

    carp!

    I was also thrown off, there is no guarantee that it's hex based either it could be 12345zWa.zip.

    I applaud everyone's efforts! I even tried the simple "site:android......." search on google :)

    I suppose I could jar it up and everyone could run "java urlTester XXXX YYYY" where XXXX is their starting number and YYYY is the ending one... granted, this doesn't check for all alphanumeric values, just numbers...

    Flash working great on my rooted Nexus (ie. using the Desire ROM) - if you guys can root your Droids to use the Desire ROM (I thought I saw some posts on this, dunno it it's ready to go yet :thinking: )... Flash works quite well with this ROM... :D

    quixand...if you aren't loving the stock home screen and home++ is lagging, go to the market and download the free Helix Launcher (version 1.2a, is current, I believe).

    Allows up to 7 screens, has four extra quick launch buttons to either side of the app drawer handle, runs very fast/efficiently.

    Again, free, does not require root or anything...my guess is you'll like it very much.

    I actually reinstalled Home ++....and while the app tray is still a laggy piece of crap on open, it is MUCH smoother now than the stock default Home launcher.

    So Home ++ is working, I just had to reinstall it.

    I think we need to see what others say also. Can't base it on one person.

    I keep doing *#*#checkin#*#* just in case, but alas, nothing yet. 12:00 Eastern is only 10:00 for me, so I'll definitely be awake and checking.

    As a buddy of mine just told me, I'm also running the old Beautiful Widgets weather widget...the one before they had to cease and desist.

    So...my lag MAY have been caused because of that.

    Unfortunately, I did a factory reset, got the phone to 2.0.1...and have been sitting here for nearly an hour with no update. :(

    So....there went that idea. I guess I'll be waiting for someone to post the Update.zip like the rest of you guys. LMAO

    Quixand, I know you tried a sd recover program already, but you should give Recuva a try. I've heard very good things about it.

    At any rate thanks for your efforts!
