    my problem is that if i use the video camera for more than 20 seconds the camera app force closes. after it fc's i can no longer open the app plus the keyboard doesn't light up anymore. i cant turn the phone off by holding the lock button but if i take the battery out then it will start working again (camera app too, unless i take a video for more than 20 secs again).

    When it first came up after the update, screen was super bright and the four navigation buttons and keyboard were not backlit. It't dark in the room so the screen should be dim and backlight on. Seems to be fixed by going into the display settings >> brightness, uncheck 'auto' and drag all the way down (left), then re-check 'auto'.
    Also, the stock widget for controling the radios, synch, and brightness is now big and black - kinda ugly if you ask me (not really a problem, just an observation).

    Hrm... I just took a 2 minute video and played it all back with no issues other than a short bit of digitization at one point in time. Not sure if that was in the recording or just an issue in the playback of the video. But it was only for about 1 second of the 2 minute video...

    There seems to be a new bug with the keyboard backlighting, albeit a minor one. After the reboot, the keyboard backlighting will not work. Also, if I power down and then power up, the keyboard lighting will not work either. Both are easily fixed by adjusting the brightness under sounds and display in the settings.

    For me, I have to select auto brightness and then remove it in order to get it to work.

    I am having the opposite thing...my keyboard backlight stays on as long as the slider is open...the home keys (back button, search etc...) lights stay lit while the screen is on...which I'm loving...I hated when the keyboard light would go out while I was pausing , during text input.

    Between this and my camera looking better, and snappier response...I am very happy with update.

    I agree with this as well. My keyboard would go dark after about 5 seconds of not typing on it. With the new update, the keyboard stays on if it is slid out. I like this functionality.

    Yes I recieved the update last night and so far I am having a few issues. My temp on my multimedia station does not display the temp. Also my volume is over all lower when I have the volume all the way up. I hate the new lock screen which if you dont unlock it immedietly it times out within 5 seconds and goes back to sleep, very annoying to say the least. On the pro side of things, it appears the default browser loads about 10% faster which is always nice.

    After I forced Updated my keyboard backlight is using the light sensor to come on and turn off. I opened my phone after reading this thread and couldn't tell if it was on or not so I stuck it under my desk and sure enough it wasn't on but in about a second mabye two it came on so I removed it and it went off even if I pushed a key it would not come on untill I put it back under the desk. I would say if your light is staying on all the time your in a low enough light condition or your sensor is dirty or possably malfunctioning. If its not comming on at all try putting your phone in a darker place or putting your finger over the sensor.

    i had the backlight problem but a power cycle fixed it, what i cannot fix is after the update, some contacts are now missing, but DO show up if i search. I set up only sync gmail so i have a backup on the cloud, but it is not pulling all my contacts. really effin annoying.

    same. mine buttons are off after a reboot, once i mess with the brightness setting, they stay on. i don't like this..not good if you're watching videos in a dark room.

    Haven't noticed any real problems yet. I'm torn on the new power and music widgets, but I think I'll be alright with them.

    One thing I love, is that it seems to have fixed the left channel 3.5mm audio crackle problem. I'd love for someone else also to confirm this for me.

    I almost pooped a cow when my keyboard backlight just quit working. So weird! Changing the brightness from the power widget also brought it back FYI

    My keypad backlight will not work only if it power cycle the phone in a dark room. Have to go to Setting> Display to manually turn it on.

    But if you power cycle your Droid in a lighted room, then it is working fine from the start.

    I also have the temp issue with Docking station.

    My video playback stopped working with the new update. I found that the SD card storage had been turned off so I turned it back on and was able to play videos that I had taken. Then for some reason it stopped working and just as suddenly started to work again. Doesn't do a lot for confidence in the video playback--it captures without a problem.
