    GB Display Change (Complaint)

    I updated my phone this morning and really dislike one aspect of the new display. The old display was white text on a black background and the new display is blue text on a white background. This is much harder on the eyes and causes your pupils to constrict. When you go from a dark wallpaper to an app, you may find it hurts your eyes (at least it does for me). I have looked for a way to change this setting in "Display Settings" but there is no method to do so. If anyone knows of a way to change this, please post it.

    My Droid updated fine but it took about 30 minutes and appeared as though had crashed for a while. If you experience this, be patient as it will also upgrade your apps as well. In addition, a co-worker updated his phone at the same time and his crashed and became unusable (identical non-rooted phones). There are fixes for this problem but I would suggest you sync your contacts (backup) before updating and be aware that the fixes (if you experience this problem) may require restoring factory settings which means you will have to reinstall your apps. try upgrading again before installing your apps to speed the process and make sure you haven't reinstalled all your apps for nothing. So far, I like the update with the exception of the new display.

    Good Luck Everyone!

    A new Droid X GB version (ota) was released today? Whats the build number?
    I have great respect for developers, but if you use air push ads you're dead to me.

    They are hoping it's the 602 update, but that's not going to come till late next week at best. It will not fix or change your issue however, you'll still have dark text on the white background. And you're not the first to complain about it either

    Thanks for the info HarleyDude! Sure would be nice if a future release gave a "Setting" option to display it either way. Other than that, I like the new interface. I can't seem to merge an FB contact with a cell phone contact like I thought I could before the upgrade. Am I missing something?

    I don't have FB, but I do remember seeing some discussion along those lines here, but I'm not sure where. You can try a forum search for it, but I'll see if I can find it and post the link.
    There is probably little to no chance of another update for the X, especially one involved enough for the customization options you'd like, so, in the meantime, spend some time and read up a little. There are ways to apply themes and change the whole look of your phone, including the color scheme you don't like. It would involve rooting (or jailbreaking) your phone, but there's a whole slew of folk here who will help with that if you decide to go that route
