Got a replacement Droid 2 and my A2DP audio is working infinitely better.
I have had an issue that has occurred on my defective Droid and the new one I just got where the music on my SD card shows up, but whatever I try to play it it tells me something like it's an unsupported file type or some nonsense.
I do a shift-alt-delete reset and all my music plays fine after reboot.
I am wondering if Pandora is causing this somehow.
Anyone else have this type of issue or know how to avoid it?
Maybe I'll see if this happens with the stock SD card as I am using a 16GB....

I'll pose a question: Do I have to proactively update google maps and other core applications, or do they come with system updates?
Google's website says the following:Tap Maps on the home screen. Search for "Google Maps" in Android Market to update.
On a related question, how are road changes handled? Do I need to install a newer version of maps & navigator, or are fresh maps and navigation data always pulled to the phone from google?

I know you can update maps, flash, and other apps in the market....they won't give you 2 installs.
I would think that a system update might update these versions as well.
The maps come from google over your data connection....so they are google maps. Not sure how often google updates their maps, but we should always get the latest version that google has.

The on screen TOUCH Keyboards & physical Keyboard: Currently when I hold down a key (long hover) the alt characters that pop up (umlauts etc), Is there anyway to make CAPITALS of the standard letters pop up instead?
I'm lazy and want to save keystrokes and don't have any use for the alt characters

Just got my D2G and love it. Wondering is there a way to get the video player to list the videos in alpha order instead of by modify date? I too miss the hold the up or down volume button to skip a song. I tried using the music player built into the phone but it would only play one song at a time even with shuffle clicked, how do I get it to play through my song list?

Droid newbie here, read the whole thread and can't find an answer for my very silly question. When I talk on the phone with my headset, I like to be able to go to my calendar, make notes, etc. But the screen blanks out, and I can't get to to come back on with out touching the power button and then the call gets cut off. I guess I'm used to my old Storm: when the screen locked, you just touched the screen or unlock button and you could use any other program on the phone while you were talking (except the browser, of course). I feel kind of dumb that I can't figure this out.
Thanks for your help. Having fun with the phone. Man. When they say "Droid Does," they aren't kidding.

So I downloaded LauncherPro and LiveHome, I like them both, but not as much as the stock phone Home program. I went into the app settings and cleared the default Home launcher, but now when I press the Home button on the bottom, it only shows LauncherPro and LiveHome.
How do I get back to the stock Home launcher? And more importantly, how do I set it back as default without deleting the other launchers?

I love the physical keyboard and nice finish, and now that it's rooted with Fission ROM running, it is finally a good software experience as well. My Motoblur was typically slowing down scrolling and multi-tasking by having too many background services or something. Plus, I really don't like very many of the widgets and UI touch-ups included in blur. I do also run the Gingerbread Launcher which can be found in the Market. Cheers!
P/S: btw, here-->http://www.droidforums.net/forum/res...root-them.html is the guide I used to root my D2. It took me about 20 mins and I'm no genius!

My HomeSmack app HomeSmack - Android app on AppBrain has a "Motorola HomeHelper" that acts as a work around so you can hit the Home button and get the Motorola Home. (This is the only option on the Motorola Tab that doesn't require root)
Still it's only a work around and if you really prefer the Motorola Home you probably should uninstall LauncherPro and LiveHome so the real default is Motorola. (HomeHelper might cause the Motorola Home to redraw sometimes).
