    I noticed my keyboard had changed after my T-mobile update and think I prefer it to how it was before. It seems 'cleaner' in appearance and also seems to respond better.

    they can't as the hardware won't support it, same hardware as Nexus 1, just two-fingers input with limited features

    I backedup just in case but iwas using SEUS and it said that it would just download and install the update so didnt really have to backup. and yes you will have to conenct it to your laptop

    Mediascape has also changed but one thing i did notice was that when i had done the update it gave me the UEAF.com app so i uninstalled it (settings etc) but i had to turn my fone off as it went on a spazzo but when i turned it back on it was there again. WTF? i thought when you had uninstalled something it didnt come back?

    Keyboard starting to grow on me now. will keep updating changes as and when i find them
     
  7. Just updated, and had to do it via SEUS.

    Took a fair few minutes to reboot. But now:

    Firmware version 2.1-update1
    Baseband version 2.1.54
    Kernel version 2.6.29 SEMCuser@SEMCHost#1
    Build number 2.1.A.0.435

    And congiuration texts sent to me for Internet and MMS.

    First thing I tried out: mediascape to check my photos and try out pinch to zoom. Did it work. Nope. Photo scrolling still crap responsiveness and functionality. Yep.

    Second thing. Check out maps - thats got to have pinch to zoom, right? Phew, it does! But it's still no where near as smooth and consistent as my iPod touch. :(

    Angry birds! Yep it works; again, no where near as well as my touch though. :(

    Back to Mediascape - surely there is pinch to zoom, or something, somehow?? By chance I long-pressed, and got a zoomy thing. It's a bit poor really, and may well have been there before for all I know. No dual touch to rotate and zoom as I like.

    Is there a new app for this? Or is this all we're gonna get? :(

    The pinch to zoom works within the Android Gallery not Mediascape, get the shortcut .apk from the Market called surprisingly Gallery Shortcut by miyavi.

    Doesn't solve your 3g issue... not sure why that has happened but you can get the .apk from here plus one for the music player

    [APP] Gallery and Music Launcher for Android 2.1 - xda-developers

    It might be worth running a repair on your phone but that will wipe it entirely so make sure you make the appropriate backups of contacts/sms etc.
     
  11. I had to fiddle about with the APN settings. (Cheers to vodafone for sending me a configuration message that knackers them up!)

    Got gallery now. Quite a nice looking app on first look. The dual touch functionality is however a very limited "pinch to zoom" though. You pinch anywhere on the screen and it just zooms in on the centre of the screen. There is no pinch to zoom on certain part of the pic, and you can't control it and rotate it, etc. etc. Do you know if there are any apps for that?

    Thanking you muchly. :)

    just got the update, works perfectly... who needs mediascape when you have the 3D gallery (dualtouch works in the gallery)... an easier way to get the gallery is if u have launcherpro, just long press home screen, click shortcuts, activities and choose the first option under the gallery tab (com.cooliris.media.Gallery), done!

    also, my swype isnt working after the update, will it work if i reinstall it?

    my swype stopped working too. If you still have the swype installer on your phone you need to uninstall swype then reinstall using the installer and it works again.....:)
