    I had a few quirks after taking the update, but I did a factory reset and everything has been smooth since.

    On v3, only bug i ever see is my browser will sometimes just close itself, though havent seen it in a week or so.

    What about you Frisco? I see you have OTA.. What bugs do you see? Do you like it over your 1.5? I know you loved 1.5

    That would be more than "annoying," to me.

    Replacement time.

    When I had v3 I had:

    Browser crashes...that's all I can think of atm.

    I got a refurb for hardware (proximity sensor) oh yeah frisco you were in that thread, I ended up getting it after many calls and store visits. So rooted now.

    Back on topic, v3 was fine.

    I tried the root master app too, it wouldn't dl, same problem as you. Just use the script in the SDK method, I think it's from Jcase. Super easy, then you can just flash whatever rom you want, it doesn't need to be one in the master app.

    i had a REALLY good 1.5 . the only issue i had was dialer lag. then i silenced audible tones and it went away. upgraded to 2.1, learned how to use it, did the same silencing for the dialer lad and now i have no more bugs. because of this i like 2.1 now.

    I'm going with Bugless, because I don't know if these "bugs" are even issues as they seem to have no adverse effect on the phone and are probably just cosmetic...

    1. 50% without signal
    2. A weak signal according to the bars, even though my signal is excellent.
    3. After using the camera, the battery reading is 96% from the camera.. only way to rid the phone of that reading is by rebooting... though, this is not accompanied by a massive battery drain.
    4. Again, according to the battery reading, sometimes the phone won't sleep as awake time is constantly on. The supposed cause is the "Android System"... again, no battery drain

    maybe some other stuff, but nothing that is noteworthy, nor causing problems with the phones functionality

    Two Erises, bug free to this point. My kids have them now but they work fine. They are not techies, they just use the phone as designed. Internet, text, email, some pertinent apps for their lifestyle and the occasional phone call.

    "Annoyances" comes to mind.

    But I feel that the commonality of your #s 1 and 2 qualify them as true bugs; we're seeing reports of those all over the place. It is obviously a displayed data bug rather than truly having 50% and truly having low signal strength.

    But if that data were accurate on those two things alone it would be a deal breaker for me; that would be low quality phone functionality.

    That's a good way to put, "annoyances"

    But they're only annoying if you know where to find the readings... if I didn't know where to find the info, I'd never know that 1, 3 or 4 were actually happening... and that's why I don't think they're bonafide bugs. But #2, the weak signal as shown by the bars, would grab anyone's attention

    I'm thinking that those annoyances may be addressed in a coming "MR2-like" update/upgrade at some time in the near future.

    2.1 OTA. Bugless, though I too have the camera issue as the primary battery eater after using it. Did the Frisco re-set yesterday, just took a pic and I'll wait a few and see if the camera is still hungry for battery life.
