Ok...so for all of you who have been sending me PM's for the test build if its perfect or not. I shall post a small video to show you YES !! it is Mango Beta 1.

Download Link has been added at the bottom of the post :D


Couple of things to mention:-----

1) Its still Beta
2) The Marketplace doesn't work
3) HTC Hub doesn't come pre installed and also searching the marketplace
gives no results
4) Mango is said to support HTML5 but this build unfortunately doesn't as
shown us in the Mango HTML5 Speed Reading.
5) Nothing I can think of.....:confused::confused:

By user: GameDr04
1) As with any unlocked phone, the APN isn't pre-programmed into the phone so it has to be added. It's a LITTLE annoying since T-Mobile has three from which to choose. All three show "3G" in the status bar but only one truly connects. It was epc.voicestream.com

2) Toggling the data radio causes the phone to freeze then reboot about 60% of the time.

3) As mentioned, the Marketplace doesn't work when you try to install something. But it does work for multimedia - I bought some music last night without issue.

I forgot to show you Multitasking :D:D lol Sorry !!


New Video with Multitasking :D

backlashsid, I'd like to add to your list, if I may. I'm running Beta 2 on my HD2 at the moment. There are some additional problems.

1. as with any unlocked phone, the APN isn't pre-programmed into the phone so it has to be added. It's a LITTLE annoying since T-Mobile has three from which to choose. All three show "3G" in the status bar but only one truly connects. For me, it was epc.voicestream.com

2. Toggling the data radio causes the phone to freeze then reboot about 60% of the time.

3. As you mentioned, the Marketplace doesn't work when you try to install something. But it does work for multimedia - I bought some music last night without issue.

4. .....there was something else and for the life of me, I can't remember what it was! If I do, I'll post it.

Overall, I LOVE MANGO! The groups feature is amazing. And messaging: above and beyond. The whole OS just seems snappier.

Oh! I remembered! I can't seem to get MMS to work - at all. The messaging service just says "Can't sent. Contact your service provider for settings". I've tried all of T-Mobile's published APNs but none of them works.

//edit
OK. I figured it out.
I had to DevUnlock my DFT Mango installation through Microsoft (not with Chevron but rather legitimately). Then, I could side-load HTC's Connection Setup XAP. Running that solved my data and MMS problems.

Also, the DevUnlock allowed me to upgrade from DFT's Beta 1 to MS's Beta 2.

Happy testing!

Beta 2? There was only one beta or you are running different ROM?

To attempt to clear up the confusion around the beta number...

It's a little bit of typo mixed in with my buried hopes and dreams.

mango_beta_2.jpg


That was the e-mail I got from Microsoft a few days ago. I read that as Beta 2... Then, when I got my hands on DFT's release, I assumed it was Beta 2. But now that I've actually LOOKED at the versioning, I realized that DFT's is older.

What kills me the most is I CAN'T FIND THAT E-MAIL ANYMORE! I have that one picture 'cause I sent it to a friend of mine but the e-mail itself is GONE.

Hi, thanks for the review. :)

I'm interested to know if there is such a feature on Mango that would let me insert quick replies in the middle of a particular sms thread or conversation? And if there is any way to edit or create "reply" templates...

Thanks, would appreciate your feedback :)
