    Nice. So you are on Telus? I'm anxious to hear some feedback!

    Yep, I will give you a run down once I loaded it. I can't right now since I am at work and will be going home to Toronto later tonight.

    Poor me.

    leaked 'Official' froyo

    Default

    I've been on the leak for over a week now, as far as I can tell it's the same. Works awesome! Very snappy, added a silent widget to the status bar (that only does vibrate). Everything else is just the froyo version of the same.

    Thanks for heads up. I have a copy of that leaked "official" build but I was hesitant in installing it in to my device.

    By the way do I have to unroot my Fascinate before I flash in the official build?

    Thanks

    Nah Telus is gsm so it doesn't mean much. The rumor about the Epic 4G getting it for christmas is a better sign. But Verizon is just as bad about updates as Samsung, it's a combination.

    Make sure everyone reading this thread is aware that the Telus Fascinate is a GSM device, and anyone with a CDMA Verizon Fascinate should not try to apply anything to their phone that is intended for the Telus version

    2 questions:

    1) Did you have GPS issues before the update?
    2) How does your GPS work after the update?

    I wish Samsung would leak the update and let the folks at xda touch it up so we can flash it.

    Hey everyone. I've been running on Froyo for little over 5 minutes. It's annoying that I needed a PC with Keis to install it, but i can forgive them.

    1) I now have full Google supported Voice search, unlike that old Vlingo stuff. That likely won't affect you Verizon users who have Bing

    2) New Car Home, Desk Home, Kobo is preinstalled, Samsung IM apps

    3) Quadrant isn't working for me. Theres a problem at the I/O on 1/4 (File system writes), but Neocore gives me and average of 55.5 FPS

    4) I don't see any new widgets

    5) Settings are slightly changed, with coloured icons

    6) I got a GPS Lock that was 20 blocks off within 5 seconds. Are there any GPS apps that tell you how well it works?

    7) New Market is not preinstalled, but I'm going to try the APK, and see if it works this time (Update: I have the new Market, no hack!)

    8) 1 New Live Wallpaper, that's really ugly, called "Aurora"

    9) FINALLY! It fixed an issue that I had where the names of my contacts wouldn't show up when I was in the Message app

    10) I'm still not able to set the 4th homescreen as my main screen, which is a bit annoying coming from a Hero.

    Just ask me any questions if you have any!

    Do you have Use Satellites enabled in your settings? Also, are you inside or outside?

    All Verizon users need to remember that even though the devices are both called the Fascinate that attempting to flash this rom will likely either not work or give you a very nice plastic brick..

    I will however say that a new Froyo build for the CDMA model is currently testing and alot of the issues in the last build seem to be much better.

    I do still have to mess around with my settings, so I might have been using the network for my location, but gps was enabled. Someone asked about the keyboard. The sanding keyboard is slightly different, because it now integrates voice to text so you don't have to use vlingo, but voice to text isn't on swype
