2.1 problems

I updated to 2.1 today, and a few things have bugged me. This involves; my "back", "menu" and "home" keys flashing 3/4 times after each minute or so.

My g-sensor seems to be mirrored, from left to right for games like doodle jump (means i tilt the screen left to go right, and tilt right to go left). However landscape works for other apps, but then that could be Doodle Jump.This bugs me, mainly because I ran the leaked 2.1 until today, which worked flawlessly and decided to get the newest build today via the system update feature. However, the update doesn't work very well. I've done a factory reset, but I still get the "dodgy" g-sensor bug as well as the flashing buttons.

I also think my texts get recieved far slower too. Anyone experience the same thing, or can explain the flashing lights?

Re: 2.1 problems

I bought a Dell STreak direct from UK Dell 2 weeks ago, just seen new update for the device, spent 30 mins downloading almost 90MB and I thought - GREAT 2.1!!!!!  After it fiddled about and installed I had - yes you guessed it - 1.6 !! Cheers Dell, you never cease to amaze me. No wonder Apple STREAKS ahead.....

Re: 2.1 problems

I'm assuming the update did the same for me. Because, although I was on 2.1 it wasn't an OFFICIAL release, it was a leak. That ran completely fine though. So today I got a new official build from O2,  and it thinks its the leak cos it says "2.1 -update1" under firmware version. So now for some reason I get flashing lights, as well as a messed up g-sensor for playing games!

Yep I'm now having the same problem...... Is Dell aware of this? can I go back to how it was before this stupid update?

Re: 2.1 problems

You can undo your update and go back to default, or clean install it.

You see... My streak was bought from Dell. I could NOT install 2.1 by flashing alone. What I did was, rooted the streak and forced a custom ROM (from Modaco) on it. Then  I restored it (with fastboot and command prompt) from there to the 2.1 leak and original bootloader. 

So basically flash a new loader, install a custom ROM. Install the default loader (using fastboot and command prompt). then Recover using the Update.pkg in the root of your SD.

Then your streak would be as new again. However, we shouldn't have to do this for our updates. Updates should be straight forward. Leak or no leak, if we wanted to go from leak to a newer official build, we should be able to do it without problems. 

Dell need to sort this out.

Re: 2.1 problems

Olaf, I'm glad I'm just not alone in this. I may try fixing my update via fastboot. Chances are I'll get a new model from Dell seeing as THEIR update, messed up MY phone. Smiley Sad

You tried Doodle Jump btw olaf? G-Sensors is messed up.

Re: 2.1 problems

Have unlocked UK Streak direct from Dell.

Ran official update today. After a long process I still have 1.6 but with random flashing keys.

Tried factory reset to no avail.

Really disgraceful and unprofessional Dell.

Sort this out NOW for your customers . . .
