Just updated to Froyo version 1.32.405.3. I don't know what that means either. No noticeable changes although I track down the release notes later.
If it's not a major version, it's probably just smaller bug fixes. Major versions bring new features and fix major bugs like the webkit browser exploit that 2.1 and lower phones suffer from.
I quite like it. I'm going to force myself to use it for a week (~50 texts a day, web browsing, twittering, skype) and see how it compares to Swype.
The main reason I signed up, other than being a nerd, was so I could do the forwarding thing.
Even though I don't quite get Google Voice yet, I'd be pretty happy with it if it showed my Google Voice number (or even my actual mobile number) when calling people. It always ends up using some random number in some random area code... I'm pretty sure the people I call are confused as all hell by this.
Installed 8pen, I like it. Still alot slower than the standard keyboard with it but getting there...
Remembering where all the letters are is going to be a bitch, but I'm slowly getting there :-d
Hmmm, Nexus S.
Yeah, I was really hoping the leaks were wrong. I hate the look of that thing, but I really wanted to have my next phone be the N1's successor if possible. Hopefully it'll be easy to port the ROM to the other Galaxy S phones, that way I can just get the Captivate and stick with AT&T.
what is your opinion on Samsung Galaxy tab?
its a bit pricey (about 700 euros), but still i sorta like it
edit. This was my 800th post /me goes to celebrate!!!!
Finally, 2.1 for Rogers branded X10 is out even though we could of flashed it nordic or generic.
Its much improved but much desire is still there. I sorta want the Desire HD if it ever comes to Rogers haha.
And the Galaxy tab, it seems alright, probably would have to see in person but i'd think its better than the iPad despite it being slightly smaller.
I bought an Epic 4G, loving it more and more every second! I was in two minds about the hardware keyboard but I actually kind of like that too.
But... I need to root this thing and fast, and not just because I want to enable free WiFi hotspot. How do I go about rooting and getting 2.2?

Doesn't seem like an official update is very far behind.

I'm not hellbent on unofficial 2.2, but I do want the hotspot feature since it's supposed to by my internet at home.
The thing is the HD2 had me a bit spoiled never having to root or anything, so I'm totally new to this. I'd hold off on doing anything if I didn't need the hotspot.
