FM Radio fixed. Used to use 85% CPU now doesn't even show up on the monitor. Also an incoming text message used to mute the radio and only a soft reset would fix it. This has been fixed.

After some time I could play it, but my entire phone was slow like hell. I used ATK to kill some stuff and changed wallpapers, but nothing. Anybody else having a slow experience with Froyo?
Same problem here.... and now i can't even start the camera app

In Settings - Wireless and networks when I turn on WiFi sometimes it displays "obtaining IP address although it's already connected

And there are new downloadable htc widgets - dice and coin if anyone cares...

guess i'm gonna have to do a factory reset... again!!!

I don't know if this has already been mentioned, but when you receive a phone call while the phone is locked, instead of the same bar that's shown when the screen is locked, you get a red stroke at the top and a green stroke at the bottom to signify that by dragging the bar to the top you decline a call, whereas by dragging the bar to the bottom you accept a call.

Edit: I think the "Location" icon in the settings has been changed to a sharper image as well.

It looks like car dock can be switched on automatically when the phone connects to a paired Bluetooth car kit. Seems like they've really tried hiding it though for some reason.
