Hello,
Formel-LMS gave me a heads up that there's no "Vibration and sound off" option when pressing volume down on the homescreens..

On 2.1 you got "sound (1 to 100)", "vibration only", "silence (no vibration, no sound)"
On 2.2 the last one seems to be missing..

Check the attached screens, last one is missing (its german but you'll see it on the icons..)

Is it possible to add that back? It'd be great to see that in future 2.2 ROMs
And I don't want to use additional apps or widgets ..

Unfortunately, they're probably not going to do anything about it. Would be nice to see the volume 'fixed' in some ROMS like Cyanogen. I guess we'll see when the source is finally released.

a quick fix is to download Quick Settings from the market. lets you change your ringer to silent and not vibrate.

You probably don't want to hear about another app but... power control plus allows you to set a widget to a total silent mode
