    Just installed the update and I must say I'm very impressed with the responsiveness and speed updates. Although I use Launcher Pro so I'm not getting all the benefits. What do you guys think?

    For those of you who have not yet rec'd the FroYo update - you can still watch Flash videos on your android device by downloading Skyfire Mobile Browser.

    Hey Guys:

    I'm in the applications manager and I'm trying to disable apps I dont use at all so they dont run in the background, like FOOTPRINTS. But I dont see an options to disable.

    Any help would be great

    Possible Bug?

    I've notice the last day or so that my Evo is not charging when connected to the PC. It says it is and has the little icon, but the battery percentage doesnt change even after a hour of charging. But I was using my cords from my Palm Pre since I had an extra one at work. If I plug it into the wall.

    It worked fine last though. Anybody else using another cord other than the one that came with the Evo and having this issue?
