Froyo was a mistake
I want to go back to 2.1. Ever since I upgraded to froyo....
1) Phone randomly gets stuck on M screen after reboots.
2) WiFi is terrible. I have little to no signal in campus. I had great signal before.
3) Haptic feedback gives poor vibration.
4) ALOT of apps I had on 2.1 are no longer on the market... 3D homerunbattle which I paid for is gone I can't get it back. Fancy widget.etc etc.
5) flash is sluggish anyway

3. dont use haptic feedback
4.i lost my g4 app, verizon fios dvr app, as well as quite a few others that i used and factory reset did not fix.
5. cleared cache, history, cookies, and did a factory reset idk how everyone else likes it but my browser was much faster before flash so i deleted it.it took forever to load up the androidcentral.com home page with flash on and about 4 bars of signal at about -82 to -79 dbm.
and first thing i did after upgrading was a factory reset and the phone definitely runs worse for me.

hey guys. New to the forums but have been bowsing around because I'm upgrading next month to Android from webOS. I'm still undecided between the DX & the Incredible but have been leaning towards the X mostly due to the screen.
anyway...been reading some of the problems with 2.2 on the X and it's got me a little concerned. The X on display that I was playing with had 2.1 and the Incredible had 2.2. They were both running perfectly. I haven't toy'd with an X on 2.2 yet so reading these posts after the update is all I have to go by in that respect. What I'm wondering is, since some are having issues and some aren't, is it possible that the OTA caused some of these issues? Has anyone updated via VZW's website? And if so are there any issues? Haven't checked to see if there's an update from their site since I don't yet have a Droid, but maybe the OTA could be the cause? Just a thought...
can't wait to get my Droid!

My wife and I have had a zero problem experience, so FroYo was a win on both of our phones.
Keep things in perspective. There are thousands of Dx users, about 60 of them have had issues. So FroYo has about a .1% screw up rate? I like having a 99.9% pass rate!
The only reason it seems like a flood of issues is because right now, anyone having issues is looking for help on the internet and landing here, many people reporting problems have less than 10 for a post count.

im curious how many people who had issues were rooted before the install.
The only problem i had was receiving push email from imap gmail and pop accounts... which started happening when i installed the asurion device recovery program. Its been uninstalled and appears to be working now.
I dont want to wipe my phone because of the verizon NFL app gives me free NFL video's. if i delete and reinstall it wants 10 a month. lame excuse, but money is money, and i actually use the app...
