Are you UK based? How did you update with the US firmware?

I just kept having reboots. I appreciate the downgrade info that people have supplied but I'm just shutting mine down until they figure it out. 5 reboots in about 3 1/2 hrs of usage is just insane. I did a complete wipe and reinstall as well.

At this point I'm waiting for the boot loader unlock so the community can supply better roms.

Anyone in Canada get it yet? Im still on firmware .11. Do you have to unfreeze apps on TitaniumBackup for updates to work (I unfroze them and still no update)

Hi Gary,

Any chance of starting to provide changelogs for your updates? I imagine doing such a thing will greatly increase the quality of feedback you receive and make for quicker diagnosis of issues stemming from an update.

As it stands, it takes the community around a week collectively to notice what's been changed and where, which generates a lot of ill-feeling. Adding this layer of transparency will bring you closer to your user-base.

If any other forum users agree with this sentiment, click the thank button or quote me and add your own thoughts.

Absolutely - official changelogs should accompany each firmware release.

Standard.

Consider yourself lucky so long as you don't want to waste your battery. Also a chance to start getting reboots if you don't already have them, GPS could stop altogether even though the build didn't change, and WiFi may or may not see an increase in performance (did they tweak the voltages to the chip?).

If you're rooted, check the dev section and you'll see a thread about "installing any version." This will allow you to flash a WW/US update if you want to try .13 and also allow you to revert to an older update. I'm currently on .11 again!

Dev forums show how to apply US update to non -uk devices.

Reverted to update .11. Look around and you'll see my own and others' screenshots of this versus .13, as well as the battery effects (of the updates as a whole, not just the increase in CPU resources)

Obviously a difference.
