    Can you please confirm whether your contact photos are displaying correctly in the favourite people widget and also when you call/receive a call from anyone. Also can you say whether you wiped before installing 2.0 and what you had on before 2.0. Help would be really appreciated with this - thanks a lot.

    Contact photos are fine. And yes i can call/receive from contacts.
    I did wipe data before 2.0 install, i had standard rom on before 2.0.

    Hope any of this helps

    Facebook pictures assigned to contacts look better than before but still a bit grainy (depends on the quality of the pic uploaded obviously).

    Photos manually assigned from file are perfect. The widget app, although a bit better stil compresses them so there is still some blocking and aliasing on the pictures. Not as clear as the example on the phone.

    I was running stock t-mobile rom and I wiped.

    for issues like this, with widgets I always start by removing the widget entirely, and adding a new one from scratch. Might help.

    Tried that and anything obvious - the problem was not as simple as that - solved eventually by a wipe and reinstall of 2.0

    I was running MCR 1.5.1 before 2.0. I did a wipe first and everything ran fine. Have just flashed 2.2 without wipe so will spend the morning checking for bugs. All seems ok so far though.

    Things are working so well now on 2.0 that I think I will only update if something significant cames along.

    Yeah thats what I was thinking. I resisted 2.1 but thought "why not?" when 2.2 came out. As always I did a nandroid backup so if I encounter any problems I will be restoring back to 2.0. So far so good though and the clock, bookmarks and favourites widgets seem to load quicker on startup.
