    Updated to GB on a stock Shift. Everything seemed to go ok except for my location./ My phone now seems to think I'm not in NYC anymore. Can anyone guess what could be causing it?

    Does all the apps that work in Froyo still work on Gingerbread? Anyone notice in huge differences coming from Froyo?
    Everything works great...and faster.

    Oh. And if you click on a shortcut to a built-in app on your home screen and get the message that "the app is not installed" or something along those lines, simply delete and recreate that shortcut. I had to do this with my shortcuts to People and Gallery.

    Also had to clear Twitter's cache and force close it to get it working again, an issue reported by others.

    I've also noticed that app2sd is a hell of a lot faster when pulling the database of apps. So there's that.

    Also I could have sworn I posted something about this here...

    Turns out having ClockwordMod Recovery installed *was* the issue.

    Solution is to revert to a stock recovery image before upgrading.

    Easiest way to flash a recovery image is to use something called "Flash Image GUI" (google it).

    As for the original stock recovery image, I couldn't find it unofrtunately, but in a pinch, you can use the one from the HTC Gingerbread ROM. It's a .zip file with a long filename that I'm not pasting here :-) but you'll find it in /sdcard/download/. Within that .zip file you'll find something called "recovery.img"; extract that somewhere on the sdcard and you'll be able to point the Flash Image GUI to it.

    Had to unroot with the zip program to get my update to work. Did a backup with MyBackup and went to re-install everything only to find no data was included with my apps (even though I did backup of apps w/data) and it will only let me install a couple of apps at a time otherwise MyBackup reboots.

    Hope the devs come up with a new root method for all of you that decided to unroot... I've been running the stock rooted ROM since yesterday afternoon and haven't seen any issues. Waiting on this bad boy to get oc'ed

    More Gingerbread bonuses, I was finally able to get Sync working with my work PC AND I finally got contacts linking between Gmail, Phone and Facebook! Sweet!

    Although, I have to say, once I saw the video on Sense 3.0, I was all about finding a Root hack to get in on my Shift.

    I don't see any of this stuff. Is that because we're using Sense?

    .
    Yeah, you don't see any of that because of the Sense overlay. That's the kind of things you see in AOSP ROMs.

    Hmmm. Sort of torn here. But if I can get a 1.8Ghz kernel to run Sense 3 on my Shift, I think I can live without a new keyboard

    I have 2 problems with it. First when customizing the backgrounds you don't get a preview with the HTC backgrounds. Second if I go to messages and hit menu>settings. It crashes. Force close. Tried to clear dalvik again, and cache partition. Tried to fix permissions, but still a no go.

    Lastly netflix doesn't work for me anymore

    If your talking about the HTC wallpapers, they were working fine for me. Didn't test messaging (I use google voice) or netflix. Are you using x99's version?

    yeah Im using the x99 version.

    I had x99 kernel before, and even with the bone stock setup from the store my quandrant scores were higher. Might give the mik rom a try or go back to how I had it.

    No, you're not alone, I can't get it either (totally stock). Seems we're the last two. I'm checking the update screen like a Xoom owner...
