I, unfortunately, took the OTA gingerbread upgrade. I am so sorry I did. I don't like it at all! Did a factory reset hoping to get back to Froyo. It didn't work. When it downloaded it downloaded gingerbread. I sure would like my Froyo back. Froyo, on my Milestone X is much more stable and overall just works much better! There are several things I don't like about gingerbread but the one thing that gets to me most is the camera. EVERY time I set my camera and video recorder it reverts back to the widescreen on camera and HD on video recorder as soon as I charge my phone or if, for whatever reason, I shut off and turn my phone back on. Talk about irritating! It does it EVERY time. Like last night. Yesterday I set it on 3M pixels on camera and VGA on the recorder. I hooked it to the charger over night and this morning I was going to be taking some pics so I checked and sure enough..... The camera was back to widescreen and recorder was back to HD. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Like I said, when I did a factory reset it doesn't go back to Froyo. It downloads gingerbread. This is just one of the things I don't like about gingerbread but it is the worst, probably. I take a lot of pics. Sometimes on the spur of the moment. It is VERY unhandy to have to go in and check the settings before I take any pics or snap them and they be so large that I can't send them through text or whatever because they are so large. Can anyone HELP?? Thanks.

Search here for Froyocam.zip. That should fix your camera issue.

I've never experienced those problems before. IMO, Gingerbread is way superior to FroYo. You might try clearing cache on the whole phone. Or doing a full Gingerbread sbf. I would guess something got messed up during the upgrade process.

What would I do with the zip file?

Don't know how to clean cache other than what I do with my " history eraser app"

I just know I basically downloaded the OTA gingerbread twice and my camera turned to.... Well you get the point

I am not great with doing customization to my phone. PLUS it being a Milestone X things get even a little more complicated because they are very close to the Droid X but they adre not the same, therefore one must be 100 sure the answers given are right.

For instance the sbf for droid x will disable the antenna on my Milestone X unless you tweak it.

Have to grt started with roofing my home. Maybe someone will help my dumb butt out today while I am away. Have a good day!!

Thanks

The settings for the camera not sticking is a known GB issue. The froyocam.zip I speak of is flashed from clockwork recovery (not to be confused with stock recovery).

Im not rooted so don't guess I can use clockwork recovery.

As for Froyo being superior... That's a joke!!

Also I have downloaded the upgrade twice. It probably has nothing to do with the download. Just gingerjunk

I never had a problem at all till I screwed up and installed it.

Live and learn..

Have you ever used Camera Zoom FX? I use that camera application instead if the stock one. You can set what megapixels you want and it stays that way. Its a few bucks in the market but well worth it. Not sure about the camcorder though.

I downloaded Camera Zoom. Don't particularly like it but its better than resetting everything continually.

Just don't care for gingerbread.

I also have much less problem with Froyo.http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-sbf/23638-linux-solution-your-windows-rsd-lite-problems.html

Would probably try it BUT.. It's for Droid X. If I use a Droid X sbf it will make my phone not work. There have been a few guys tell me to not use a DroidX sbf. They say it screws up the antenna or radio, I forget which. Either way I'd be screwed.

I need to o go to a Milestone forum.

I sure wish I could get back to Froyo though. It was so much better on this device!

Will the sbf files work wth Bluegrass Cellular? I sure wish I had one so I could try some things to get rid of gingerbread. It, to me, is no where near as good as Froyo was. Thanks

I'd say use the generic one but I'm not sure what it would do to your baseband. So if it were my phone I wouldn't mess with it until I had a sure fire sbf file.

Contact your local carrier become friends with a tech and get the sbf haha

You can use the 2.3.5 sbf file from nTelos but don't flash with RSD because it will overwrite your baseband. You need to use linux and sbf_flash, sounds like a pain but it's actually not that bad and 1KDS has a live boot disc on his site or you can go to almost any linux distributor (fedora, ubuntu, linux mint.... etc) and download a live cd which allows you to try the OS without overwriting your current OS.

Before you do anything tho go to the dialpad do ##PROGRAM / User Activation and write down your MIN & MDN numbers, you'll need these later.

Here's the SBF: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/54532450/1FF-p3a_shadow_cdma_shadow-user-2.3.5-4.5.1_57_MX2-34-111019-release-keys-signed-ntelos-US.sbf.zip
Here's the Linux SBF Flash Program: http://cmw.22aaf3.com/common/sbf_flash.zip

Once your in linux download the two files then open up a terminal, unzip the files (typical file location is "Downloads" within the users home directory for most distros);

unzip 1FF-p3a_shadow_cdma_shadow-user-2.3.5-4.5.1_57_MX2-34-111019-release-keys-signed-ntelos-US.sbf.zip
unzip sbf_flash.zip

Next you have to give execute permissions for the sbf_flash program;

sudo chmod 777 sbf_flash

Then execute;

sudo ./sbf_flash 1FF-p3a_shadow_cdma_shadow-user-2.3.5-4.5.1_57_MX2-34-111019-release-keys-signed-ntelos-US.sbf

Whola you now have a clean phone with the original baseband of your carrier, reprogram your MIN & MDN numbers........ The same could be done with a Verizon SBF but for the OTA Gingerbread update there isn't a version that will work, or has been released.

Need root? Use SuperOneClick works like a charm....

** Remember linux is case senstive so commands, files, and directories must match.

Wow..

I think about 80% of that went over my head. lol..

So this will take me back to Froyo?

I am fairly good with dos, just a little rusty. I have never used Linux though. Guess there is no time like the present.

I will sit down and take a hard look at this when I get a chance. I have a feeling of ignorance at the moment.

Thanks.

If you can use dos linux shouldn't be a problem.... Once your on 2.3.5 OTA "Gingerbread" you can't go back to Froyo the bootloader won't accept anything below .604 trust me it sucks but this will get you back to a clean state incase you think the update had issues.

Have tried for two days to register there. The captcha box has nothing in it. Therefore I can't register to see the sbf files. Cant contact them either without registering.????
