i have been using THIS since it was released, works perfect for me. Stable and to be honest, i have not really had any issues personally.

Is there no offical release for the san francisco at the moment i was looking into buying one of these what are they like?

Using it since i got my sf on wednesday. its a great piece of software. to me its stable.

is there a way to upgrade from modaco 2.1 to 2.2 without losing all my current data?

What's better about 2.2?

I've finally got 2.1 (Modaco release) running nicely (was having problems with high CPU usage, major lag in Angry Birds and a weird problem with the camera..) so if it's nothing major, I won't bother.

2.2 has a better browser, JIT which brings a lot of speed boosts, more apps available, apps can be stored on the SD card, tethering and WiFi hotspot along with some other little things.

Flash is also available although I'm not sure whether the CPU in the SF is capable of it, it only works on some ARM chips like the Snapdragon ones.

2.2 can but it's also CPU dependent, like I've had my Hero running 2.2 but the chip in it doesn't support Flash 10.1.

The orange san francisco will not support flash.

how snappy is the sanfran on 2.2?

how snappy is the sanfran on 2.2?



snappier than 2.1 im using jellyfish now, it feels the snappiest

is that the one in your link in the first post?

The san fran is definately faster on 2.2 I recommend updating to the Modaco 2.2 (tried that one and the jellyfish one with 128mb system partition and over clock but personally found the modaco one more stable and faster (maybe due to me using a swipe lock screen and GO launcher on jellyfish, not sure).

I was bought a SF for Xmas following all the good reports circulating about it. Although i will sdmit to being a total techno clutz, i am curious to know what this change from '2.7 to 2.2' is all about.

the change is from 2.1 to 2.2

San Francisco is a phone that uses googles android operating system. Therefore the interface you are using to do things on the phone are apps or widgets etc on android version 2.1. Like windows android develops and updates it's operating system. 2.2 is a newer version with some enhancements that people are looking for on their phones as well as some people reporting that it runs faster on the phone meaning anything you do from games to texting to browsing may be quicker.

Yes, agreed. However depending on how you are using the phone you can turn off many background processes and services to save on battery.

Also remember 90% of what you use will stay open even when you cannot see it. Turn off gps and wifi and bluetooth when not in use to save a big drain

Thanks for the info

i m in love with my san francisco
