Ota upgrade - happy user


Android Enthusiast
Nov 15, 2009
Alright, I had no issues with my phone PRIOR to the update (phew), and now post-update I'm even happier!

2 of my Exchange issues using the built-in Exchange functionality of the Droid have been fixed:

1) I can now forward Exchange e-mails without it forwarding as an EML attachment

2) I can now open attachments within my Exchange e-mails

Also, I have no browser lag or any other side effects from the update.

Am I the only one here experiencing no issues after the update to 2.01?

I really haven't taken any step backwards with 2.0.1. Well, maybe the scrolling is a little less consistent in a couple of the menus. Everything that counts about 2.0.1 is better -- incoming voice quality, 3G download speed, email, etc. etc. But I'm still waiting for the big step forward on 1x signal quality and I still have everyone asking me to turn off the speaker and/or talk more clearly. Maybe I have defective hardware . . .

I think that someting to keep in mind while reading forums like these is that those with problems are far more likely to express them by starting a new thread etc.. If you simply paid attention to the amount of positive versus negative threads, you would think that 3/4s of all droids are defective. Its muc more likely that those that are happy with everything and have no issues are less likely to start a thread stating as much and perhaps might just post to help others out or to just express their general happiness with their droid. It's kind of a representativeness bias.

Personally, I haven't recevied my droid yet (next friday,wahoo!), but sometimes as I am reading this forum I get worried that I'm going to get a defective droid when the actual probability is likely only about 5-10%, and even those problems likely aren't crippling.

I guess the moral of my story is that I'm sure for most people the upgrade was beneficial and for many, they probably don't even know they got it. So, lets here it from the happy people! :)

I agree. I think that "some" (definitely not ALL) of the issues are user-related. After the update, I clicked on the "Gallery" shortcut on my home screen and it said "application not installed..". I then deleted the shortcut and re-created it and all was fine. It took me 10 seconds to correct this "glitch". On another forum, one user mentioned to remove the battery if this happened and the thread went on and on.

Anyway, I thought a positive thread was due! :D
