Re: Froyo (2.2) on Captivate

Yay! Finally Rogers admitted there is an issue with the data location services for Android 2.2! There are already many Nexus One, Vibrant, Desire HD users who are having this issue since the middle of December. We were all running Android 2.2.  What is even more interesting is the Rogers branded Acer Liquid E and Samusng Galaxy Tab running 2.2 also is having the same issue.  But to be fair to Rogers, I don't think it's a problem with Rogers entirely.  It is something to do with the communication between Rogers servers and Google since there are no issues reported from users on Bell and Telus.

 

On a side note, I thought the issue was solved for a couple days last week.  Everything worked fine.  Location updated as I travelled across town.  However, everything stopped working again on January 1st.  What a way to start off the new year!

And just to give everyone an idea on how this is a concern for everyone (well, majority). There are many apps that require location services. For example, I use Yelp, Google Places, WeatherEye, Android news and weather widget and the Browser (google search). If GPS is not turned on (I turn mine off to save battery), location should be updated based on the cell tower data. However, it has not worked on many Android 2.2 devices on Rogers and hence, none of those apps work. This means, the phone is useless!

so if it works for bell,telus ect,, its a rogers problem then,,
and that being said,, lets fix the shutdown, freezing and lag problem,, that should be able to be done without 2.2

 

and my other question,, why does rooted 2.2 phones work??

Re: Froyo (2.2) on Captivate

Well, you are right, it is a Rogers problem. LOL, Rooted phones do not work. All Android 2.2 running devices are not working. However, there was a fix from XDA forum. The fix didn't work on some phones. In addition, this is only a problem in the Ontario/Quebec region. Weird eh? Something was done (by Rogers or Google) in the middle of December and everything stopped working. I (and many others) can tell you it worked before that.

EDIT:  The reason I say it may not be Rogers is because the data location service works on the iPhone in the Ontario/Quebec region.

Totally agree with Northy

Galaxy & Android are such high-profile products /OS in the market. Location issue as Rogers describe is un-heard of elsewhere (at least from all the website I visited)

Its sound more like an "LOCALIZE" issue only Roger is experiencing !?

Could it be their Network is incompatible with the CURRENT requirement ? or poor design team on the customization ?

Please give us definite ETA, it is long-past due question that's should have answered !

Strange, I thought I saw an Edit post option before. I was going to edit one of my post saying that the issue started in middle of November (Nov 14-16 time frame). Not December.

When the Captivate launched Rogers said the 2.2 update would be coming in 2011.  We are less than a week into 2011. I still have faith it will come soon. I have heard that samsung customer support claims the update should be out this week.

Re: Froyo (2.2) on Captivate

Well, better be this week or next !!

Since  it was orignal said  Mid-Dec & many  Rogers dealers have been promoting base on 2.2 Galaxy thru out the Christmas Rush

 

I can only see Angry customer on the rise with any  further delays or non-delivery

How exciting, I bet we get another day and no update!
Maybe it's time to hire some propper developers to get this thing rolling.

Without 2.2 , Captivate  is  consider obsolute (or at least below-standard)

 

Here is latest survey on  Android OS

Honestly, I want Froyo as bad or worse than anybody here.... But as a developer, I know that we are often pressured into saying that it will be ready sooner than we want to.  And when it comes down to it, I would rather have a stable 2.1 than a buggy 2.2.

 

What people don't realize is that they could have released it mid-December, but made a wise decision not to because the number of upset customers would be 100x larger than the number of people who are complaining about no Froyo.

 

Froyo could still be glitchy when we get it, but hopefully they give it to us in a state that doesn't turn off mid-call, lose GPS or worst of all brick everybody's phone.

i agree with the above post to a point,,,

 

and the point being,, there are guys out there that have created excellent 2.2 roms, that have corrected issues,that make the phone lightning fast,, and extremly stable,,,

 

so my question is, if it can be done as we see it done,,, why cant it be done by rogers and samsung,,

 

custom 2,3 is going to be alive before we ever see a rogers 2.2...

 

makes no sense,, does it,,???

I just want a real update. Some sort of time frame. But as usual rogers just feeds us the same line over and over again. Somebody must know something.
