    Storm2 and Google Maps

    Did a google search and found the install link...dropped it onto the phone and whammo, bricked...

    I uninstalled it using DM and am back up and running, but for anyone trying to run Google Maps, you may want to be careful.

    If anyone knows a work-around, I'd love to hear it.

    I used an upgrade on my S2 today...but am being very careful not to scratch it in advance of the Droid release next week. The speed on the S2 is incredible...that much I give them credit for.

    It's probably fast because there really isn't anything on it.

    Well, I figured it was either spend the day wiping/upgrading my S1 to the latest OS, which would basically be a frustrating experience (given my BES setup) or I could spend the day setting up a S2 assuming that if it doesn't knock my socks off this weekend, it'll go back when Droid hits Verizon. I just need to make sure I don't drop the S2 in the toilet and I should be ok.

    I have both S2 and S1 and side by side you can see the speed difference with apps installed and with no apps installed. Without doubt is more responsive. But to me the huge difference is the keyboard, finally they got it right. IMO it's a thing of beauty.

    Happy for ya, man. I'm kinda happy with the new OS...haven't made my mind up about the S2 yet. Guess I'm gonna just shit back and read all the reviews and comments about it.

    I've got mine set to auto-roam onto Wi-Fi...just loaded Google Reader as home page on browser and when I start the browser, it's blazingly fast. +1 for S2...total tally thusfar is 0 (+1 browser/-1 google maps).
