Rooted to 2.2 with a few lingering issues
Greetings. So after 5 months of ownership, I rooted my Droid about a week ago to "stock" 2.2 (sapphire 0.7) following the tutorial on droid-life.com. Everything went smoothly and I felt like it was almost too easy. I've been basically happy with it, except I've lost functionality in two areas: geolocation (weather apps, not navigation/maps - those are fine) and voice search. The loss of geolocation isn't a killer for me, but I've started to realize that I really miss the voice search. The error I get when trying to voice search anything is "Sorry! The application Voice Search (process com.google.android.voicesearch) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again".
I should add that I rooted primarily for wifi tethering my iPad and froyo. I may mess around with other settings, but that's really what I was after and it works.
So here are this noob's questions-
Is this a known issue with this ROM, and can I just install another one and it will work? If so, what is another stockish ROM I could use?
Could I replace this defective voice search process somehow?
Is there a setting that I've accidentally reset?
Any other advice?
Thanks in advance.
