    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?
    Factory... not rooted. Thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    Since the manual update to froyo, the button on my wired headset no longer hangs up -- it only mutes. This was working perfectly before. I'm really disappointed by this, since I use the wired headset all the time.

    Also, now hitting the search button and entering a contact's name doesn't display their name anywhere near the top of the results like it did before. Now I need to enter the entire name before it will appear as an option. I added "people" in the search settings, but it's still doing this. Am I the only one noticing this?

    thanks,

    Frank

    I did a hard reset and most of my issues were fixed...it was a little time consuming but well worth it. Everything seems to be working way better. I did not reinstall the Task Killer and believe it or not I am get better battery time. Oh and just the camcorder is not as smooth as it was on 2.1 but it is a lot better after the hard reset.

    Did a hard reset with the instructions posted here. My EVO is back to factory, but when I try to install to 2.2, it still goes back to the bootloader screen. The phone was not rooted, just tried to install unrEVOked 3 last week, but it wouldn't work either.

    Suggestions welcome.

    Thanks

    It happens to me as well, not nearly as good as with 2.1. I'm hoping they were not rushing to be the first state side carrier to release 2.2 and bypassed all the testing because this update sure has a lot bugs. The hard reset did not fix that issue but did have my phone running a little smoother.

    I still have no luck with my secondary (and most important) Gmail account updating. I have done everything (deleting and re-adding accounts, clearing data and cache, etc) except a factory reset but don't really want to do that since it hasn't been reported to be a certain fix for the problem. Did anyone post a solution that I may have missed?

    You're welcome, but I wish we could have fixed it. It sucks that it's bricked. The only thing that ever fixed my phone from hanging/rebooting at the carrier logo was to do something called "wipe" from within the recovery menus, but it doesn't even sound like that's an option for you.

    To everyone else, I'll update the first post tomorrow. Thanks for the additional feedback. It's great to hear someone did a hard reset, isn't using a task killer, and has positive results.

    No solution too second Gmail yet. Keep an eye on the thread that talks about it.

    Not sure if it's been mentioned but with the Evo 4G, you don't seem to have access to the stock Froyo Keyboard with the new number buttons above it ... anyone seen an APK perhaps?

    Just wondering, anyone fix the voicemail .wav issue? Don't want to hard reset unless I have to. Otherwise everything else checks out, but I'm a little 'fraid that data wiping may not fix a codec issue. But I've been wrong before. Thanks to all esp. CS.

    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
    So I just need to turn it on and let it run even though I'm not near any wifi service?
    Great question I would like to know as well

    @quizshow and @slingbox. As far as I know yes. I'll try it again this morning on the way to work as my local ESPN Affiliate decided to go gospel music (if that's your thing great). So it's the only way I can listen to my Mike and Mike in the morning. I'll update this post after I'm at work.

    ***UPDATE*** WiFi on running down I-64. Not connected to WiFi but streaming iheartradio over 3g. tell your friends

    Found a specific issue in the OFFICIAL Froyo update? Listed below are a few of the initial problems being reported. Feel free to report others in this thread. If it's determined to be a common problem, I will update this post accordingly. If solutions are found, I will also provide information here.

    If you are having an issue, try a hard reset using this procedure.

    Yes you will need to reinstall apps and settings, but this is trivial compared to spending a countless amount of time on troubleshooting issues that you're having that others are not.

    Also, please do not use task killers. 9 times out of 10 these programs cause issues if not used properly. By not using one, you will be able to isolate root causes easier.


    Poor browser performance. Reported solution solution: Browser > Menu > More > Settings > Enable Plugins > On Demand.

    Second Gmail account not synching. Solution: TBD

    Camera issues. Reported solution:Uninstall the LED light widget.

    Apps missing in market. Reported solution: Uninstall ay app from Application Settings and then reinstall it from the marketplace. This should bring back your apps list.

    Pandora/Slacker problems. Reported solution here.

    Third party system panel app not working correctly. Per the developer of this app, the app does not need to be updated. The developer said that Froyo just does not do inactive cached apps.

    Bluetooth voice dialer will only dial primary number. Solution: TBD

    I'm using Unrevoked 3 and cannot update. Reported solution: Unroot and return to stock ROM.

    Swype no longer works. Reported solution: Uninstall and reinstall the beta.

    Music no longer works with multi tasking. Solution: TBD

    Broswer Crashing on Flash Sites. Solution: Read 1st post of linked thread.

    Droid X & HTC IME Keyboard no longer works. Solution: TBD

    Sirius & XP apps not working. Solution: TBD

    HTC Streaming Media will no longer play RTSP feeds. Solution: TBD

    Poor battery life. Solution: Varies... Need to read the thread. However, here are a few suggestions: Disable Always on Mobile Data, disable Google talk from automatically starting, keep WiFi turned on, disable roaming, and turn off CDMA roaming. (Thanks, Chris!)

    One more time:

    Please do not use task killers (check task killer sticky for more info). 9 times out of 10 these programs cause issues if not used properly. By not using one, you will be able to isolate root causes easier.
    Also, Task managers won't work in Froyo. The Android team deprecated the method used to kill tasks. Apps can no longer kill other tasks. They may kill the task, but it will just pop right back up. They definitely aren't needed in Froyo anyway, thanks to improved memory management. I think if people are having battery issues, they should do a factory reset and not install a task killer. Since they no longer work, leaving one on auto-kill settings could have some bad effects on battery.

    Since the udpate. 2 of our Evos (the other Evo being a member here on this forum) have been unable to open attachments (tested JPG & PDF) using the HTC mail app.. gmail configured as Exchange. Error states: Corrupted file.

    other accounts, like pop/imap open the same files just fine on the phone.

    Unsure if this has been posted previously.. my apologies if so.

    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.

    thanks! I must have overlooked it. Ya I figured it was something different with 2.2. I go back and find your post.

    I am wondering if anyone has found out more information on why the stock player no longer supports certain WAV files, such as voicemail from Cisco unity messaging or Vonage. There is a paid app, Remote Wave, that I am told works. However, I am still hoping to determine why it quit working natively.

    Thought I would try giving this another shot. Has anyone signed into Google Talk and then tapped a person's picture in either Talk or their contacts? Does anyone get two phone icons and the second icon brings up a list of applications if you tap it that don't do anything? It only seems to do it if you tap the picture or icon of someone that is online in Talk and on your contact list in Talk. Just thought I'd try again to see if I'm the only one. I thought I'd see if any of you could try to see if yours does this or if I'm crazy. Let me know if I haven't described it adequately!

    Under system recovery my options are:

    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition

    I did all of the wiping.

    When I try and apply from sd I get the signature error.

    Just so everyone knows, I tried every step suggested above. I finally did simple root and still could not get it re imaged. I tried it on both Windows 7 32 and 64 bit systems. Finally I bought up a virtual machine with Windows XP. I installed the HTC sync software and started the process The VM lost connection to the Evo a couple times, but I would just select the VM menu and it would reconnect and continue.

    This worked first try with no issue at all.
