    If anyone craves a return to the flipping flip-clock, Kendon over at the MoDaco forum's has brought it back as an update.zip - you will need to have a rooted phone with a custom ROM/recovery image, but I can vouch for me that it has worked perfectly without a wipe - and no noticeable slowing down.

    I'm wondering if a lot of 'post-update' owners wonder what the hell I'm talking about?

    I have been flippy flippy all weekend with no noticable effect on performance. Again, no wipe I just applied the .zip.

    It is nice to have the flip clock back. Simple pleasures.

    Don't we already have the flip clock? It's No. 3 of 12 under HTC Widgets and includes the weather.

    I knew it! No - before the rom update, the flip was properly animated, but this was suspected of contributing to lag so was removed. With the old clock you actually see the numbers flipping down.
