    Do you still have the phone, or did they keep it? If you still have it, are you able to get it into bootloader mode?
    I still have it. I can get into bootloader. What are my options?

    does any one know what happened to the speech to text function on the keyboard? it is only available on the search function only now.
    you mean like in text messages or browser where you can speak what you want instead of typing all the time. If this is what your talking about I can say not only is it still where it was as of day before yesterday. It may be a bit more accurate. Though I believe Google does refine the algorithms that use this process constantly so it may have nothing to do with Froyo.

    If one more person reports a problem that is using a task killer....

    System Panel that I mentioned is a very useful tool. While you can kill apps in it, I don't use it for that. I don't think most people do.

    It has lots of good data to see what's going on with the system in real-time.

    My original post was to why none of the apps are in the cached state, vs background. I'm still searching for an answer to that one.


    Anyway... to anyone using an app killer.

    Short story is with 2.2 Froyo the API changed and they removed the basic kill functions to allow you to kill apps. Instead is just signals them to restart. After reading the news groups it sounds like the kill function was abused which is why they decided to remove it. Abused == task killers. Which are unnecessary.

    However, you will still occasionally run into an app that is misbehaving. Just use the application manager in Froyo to stop it.


    If anyone has any info why all of the apps are showing as background processes I'd be interested to hear it.

    I think it's the new norm. I played with zoom settings and it helped a bit but also I feel like when I'm scrolling the page (although I'm not seeing lag). Moves at a slower pace. Then again I'm a bit sleep deprived so it could be me.
    Ok I leave it be then.

    Before I upgraded to the 2.2, my 4G and hotspot was working fine. After the update, if I'm on the 4G network, and I turn on the hotspot, I get bumped off the network, and it cycles trying to connect to the 4G network. Even trying the USB tethering doesn't help. Any ideas?

    I would download the original shipped ROM from here, and see if you can flash it to the EVO. Give it a shot & report back.

    Also, in recovery, you might see if there's an option to reset or wipe data. If either of those exist, you might try that first.

    Recovery just goes into a red triangle with and exclamation point.

    How do I flash? load from usb?

    Press & hold up on the volume button then press power. You should then see several options. I'm hoping you have something in there that says wipe, restore, or something to that affect.

    Option B:

    I'm thinking you can just run the executable that I pointed to you, while it's plugged in to your computer to flash the original ROM.

    Looks like it refuses to allow me to connect usb to the phone. This thing is pretty hosed. I did try the clear storage and recovery. None worked.

    I ran that exec. It tried to connect but could not.

    I just read some of your earlier posts. Can you boot up far enough to get into settings on the phone (I could't tell from your post earlier), or does it get stuck at the Sprint logo?

    Also, when you were in recovery, was there an option to update from SD? If so, you could put the .3 update on your SD card and flash that for now.

    Better yet, if you can move these zips (credit to netarchy @XDA) over to your SD card and flash them from recovery, that would be even better. Download the first one to your card, and change the name to update.zip. Boot into recovery and select the option to flash the update.zip from SD. Do the same for the other two downloads to get the radios installed.

    No the phone is a brick. It goes through the bootup then the Sprint sequence. Then the home screen comes up with the slide to unlock... says no service and no touch screen capability. I cannot get into anything from there. I can get to the boot screen but recovery fails. I cannot get into the sd card from the phone.

    To flash the shipped ROM, I was trying to see if you could get through this procedure. The only thing that I can think of that would make a difference is installing HTC Sync.

    To install the rooted ROM on XDA, there has to be a way to get the files over to your SD card whether it's via a card reader, or another phone that has a Micro SD that can be mounted.

    earlier I posted that iHeartradio was broken with this update. I found a way to make it work. Even if your not on wifi, if you toggle it on, the app will work again. Hopefully clearchannel will get on it! ASAP

    I don't know man, I'm out of ideas. BTW, what ROM did you have on there before you started all this? Were you rooted?

    I upgraded to 2.2 OTA yesterday. Everything has worked great except that out of all issues, the notification sound for my text message became a very low key pop sound. I attempted to change it various times and tried resetting my phone a couple of times to see if that changed anything and nothing.

    The funny part is I can still change the sound notifications for my twitter, so it is specifically the text messaging that is causing a problem. I have never rooted and didn't flash that early froyo, just the legit one yesterday.

    Can anyone help me?

    I meant things like, WiFi, Bluetooth, ringtone/notification sounds, GPS options, keyboard settings, unique app settings etc... I've never had those things backup to Google, but maybe I'm doing something wrong? Either way, I agree with your general point... hard resets are not that big of deal.
    That's true, although my WiFi password/access point and wallpaper seems to get backed up as well. And my saved starred items in maps too. For app data there's no option unless rooted with titanium.

    I posted earlier but froyo no longer has cached apps. I linked to the thread where I asked the developer and his response, froyo is just different. So system panel now only has active apps and system processes.

    So I just need to turn it on and let it run even though I'm not near any wifi service?
