Hi all,

Just updated to the new firmware R2EA021 (T-Mobile Hungary). What I noticed so far:

- boot is really a lot faster - not that it would need to be restarted too often
- Google Maps is now version 4.1.1, lots of new features there
- Camera interface works much faster, still a bit slower than I would like, but a big leap from how it was

It does seem a bit faster and smoother, but that will need more time to confirm. Also, I had some trouble with overexposed pictures in the camera before, that appears to be fixed, but will need some testing in bright sunlight.

Hello! Threads on this phone seem to be dead, so I must be late, but does anyone know if this firmware will work for a US phone? I have an AT&T Vivaz debranded to the generic Argentina R2CA024. I can't quite figure out from the different language/location version of R2EA023 if it will be compatible in the USA. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!
