    Default Don't Update Your Skype!!!

    The new Skype update killed the video calling on my stock Sprint Epic 4G GB 2.3.6 EL30. Everything was working perfectly prior to the new Skype update. Now it's basically unusable save for the terrible voice only calls (just use the phone now). If you haven't updated your Skype yet DON'T DO IT!!!

    Does anybody else have this problem or did your update work? I've uninstalled and reinstalled. and it still doesn't work. It's also become a huge memory hog. 14MB now. I think it grew by at least 10 MB. Very annoying.

    Recommend Titanium Backup Root to keep the last working version to revert to in cases like this.
    GNex (SCH-i515) <-- Epic4G (SPH-D700) <-- Centro <-- SPH-i500 <-- SPH-i300 <-- Palm Pro

    Incoming video calls work. The video is a bit buggy. However I have no video on outgoing calls.

    Thanks for the titanium tip. I'm getting closer to my first root of my phone. Just researching CM9 ICS. Beta 2 to make sure none of the bugs would be a showstopper for me.

    You should go for it without hez. The rom is so solid, it will make you fall in love with your phone all over again.

    Good Luck!

    I did update late July and now i have regretted it since. I tried to install an and older version of Skype but it would not allow me. something to do with the server.

    I thought about changing the video drivers but i don't really want to.
