Tale of a 1st-day rooter
I got absolutely sick of waiting for an OTA of 2.2. I took the matter (and risk) into my own hands to get my phone i paid FULL PRICE to run the way I want it to. So, I thought outside the box and installed clockwork, DK28, and Truly epic, took me a few hours with a backwoods yee haw 40KB connection. I ran quandrant and realized it really sped it up, especially with EXT4 filesystem. with my 32GB class 4 card, it's a speedy lil thing (helps for HD video transfers).
I had an odd thing happen though. I had next to no service, everywhere. places where I got 4-5 bars, I got 2. places where I had 1mbit, I got 40k, what whaat? Here's the odd thing - once I started making voice calls, the overall connection got better, to the point where the connection where I live had a slight improvement. Now it seems I feel like I should keep my phone the way it is without even caring when 2.2 comes out to the masses. I feel like I've been changed, digitally .
I would like to thank the forums as a whole and the originators of the guides I have used to make my epic 4g the best phone I have ever purchased.
Curious, has anyone had a bad connection after switching? I don't understand the GPS issue, since it seems accurate enough, so far.
Thank you everyone for your time in reading this. I haven't posted on a forum in quite some time. (since gamespot in '04)
