swype with voice input, signal meter fixed!!

hd camcorder and media hub

task manager did we have one before?

compass appears broken still

GPS is working at my work which im on the 1st floor of a 4 story building, it has never ever worked in here before.

I use to get crashes with flash lite sometimes, pages that were broken now seem to work.

downloading it now.....more info as I have it.

- flash finished...rebooting...

- reboot successful...re-rooting and posting screenshots and info to come..

Version

PDA: T959UVJI5
Phone: T959UVJI5
CSC: T959TMBJFD

Build Time: 2010.09.22
Changelist: 584835

Doesn't seem to be much different from JI4 on a cursory examination. Haven't had a chance to step outside and test GPS. The 5.1 SRS sound effect for video playback is still as broken as it was in JI4.

First time I've gotten a lock outside (in my back yard) to hold after walking back in my basement (where my downstairs den and lab of doom reside). Accuracy and whatnot seems fine. Will have to wait till later to drive around and see if the GPS decides to not develop a mind of it's own and move around on me.

Once you are in KIES mode you do have to back out to the Home screen for KIES to actually work...Figured that out the hard way a long time ago.

And it only reliably works with the Samsung driver. the Android ADB drivers for the sdk no worky...
