    Default New Droid Charge Update

    I just got the new update about 30 mins ago on my Charge. Haven't noticed many changes yet except that it has an ICS-like lock screen now. I don't even see an option anymore to change to the puzzle piece or "glass" lock screen either. Otherwise, I haven't noticed many changes yet. And they STILL haven't changed the color scheme that they said they would change with the GB update. The brown and orange is hard to look at.

    That would definitely be a nice thing to do. I've checked on my charge and no update yet.

    I just got the update a few minutes ago. Other than the different-look lock screen, the only major difference I have found is the background image. Previously it was 7 screens wide and would move a little as I swiped from left to right and vice-versa. Now it seems to be static. Does anyone know how to get that functionality back?

    PS - Here is the new lock screen. I cannot change it to anything else either. Too bad, I liked the puzzle pieces better.

    My wife's phone had the update pushed to her phone as well. Strange there was no big rumors of this update and not even FP announcement of the release so it must have been really secret. I haven't seen much of a chance either other than the lock screen. I think it's better now but I know some like the puzzle piece. Interested in the change log and if the GPS locking has been addressed even slightly.

    Would like to know about tethering with third party apps. Changelog seemed to have a lot of items about tethering. Don't tether often but nice to have it as an option when i'm stuck. Thanks!

    After a couple days of use I have noticed that the bootup time is very fast now .. its as fast, if not faster than my Galaxy Nexus. The background is static for the stock launcher, but I am still using GoLauncher so lets you still have a moving background - it just crops it a little more than before. Only other thing Ive noticed, other than the new lockscreen, is now it show the up/down activity on the wifi icon in the status bar.

    Still no update for me. I must be last on the list. My son and I bought Charges the same day back in May and he got his update yesterday. Oh well, I'm sure it is not as big of a deal as when we got GB.
