Avatar no longer works
The cool water live wallpaper is no longer present - instead replaced by the bull**** "green smoke" live wallpaper
Your desktop gets reset when you update
Added Tmobile TV
Wifi Calling works great
Mobile AP is badass
Nothing got deleted except the LW as far as I can tell
Will keep checking - have two vibrants, will compare the two as the evening presses on

After all this time the update feels rushed and poor. After using the pepperkake rom as my daily I have downgraded a lot. The plus is what this will bring to the devs I guess.
The thing is a slug and now my GPS that I have never had a problem with is 3+ miles off of target after getting a 2000 meter lock. Avatar does not work on my phone as well. Not to mention I am seeing poor radio performance and battery life. Could be growing pains and a quick release. Maybe updates with follow to fix the problems. Will they be timely though!
I guess the only plus is that the devs will fix what sammy and tmobile rushed out and left quirky.

here's a few fixes..
the ocean live wallpaper is available for download in the android market! got mine back too!
and avatar, i have come to realize, came on the original sd card that came with the device. I popped that one back in (versus my 8gb one) and avatar was there! I just have to transfer it to my other 8gb card.
hope this helps some of you!

Will probably end up reverting to Cyanogen (once it's ready) or Nero (more likely) until a proper 2.3 version is released.
Still nice to have an official (albeit, slightly broken) version out there for the masses - I think the Avatar bug...if reproduceable - is going to be a big issue for Tmo...hell...it was on the side of the box, and according to the DRM you actually own it (and now can't watch it) on your Vibrant. No skin off my particular nose...I'll just rip it if I want to watch it...but honestly, the movie was kind of preachy to me!

after the update, my phone basically went back to factory settings. i didnt lose anything beside some of my sound settings and home screen layout. as far as teh market goes, it went back to the old app market, but i think itll automatically update itself after a few minutes after you restart the app.
as far as differences ive seen, the processing speed is a bit better. swiping my home screen doesnt lag as much as it did before. the photo gallery literally snaps open and loads all my photos and downloads, and web browsing is a lot more snappy as well. facebook doesnt crash my browser anymore and loading content appears to be quicker as well.
flash sites sort of suck tho. theyre already pretty heavy to download, but they also require a bit more processing power.
i still have all my old files/wallpapers/ringtones etc. but i dont see samsung widgets anymore, which arent all that great to begin with.

This worked for me.
At first it gave me the license locked message. From another post I found an easy solution.
1. click settings,
3. manage applications,
4. under the "All" tab I went to "DRM protected content storage" and cleared the data.
5. I then unmounted the SD card and turned off the phone.
When I booted back up and tried Avatar it gave me a "The movie cannot be played" message. After rebooting 2 more times Avatar finally came back.
