Video shows Samsung Moment running Android 2.1 with Live Wallpaper & no lag
if you want instructions or have questions.
It depends on the particular live wallpaper -- I'm running one that doesn't introduce any noticeable lag (Starfield) but another (some sort of swirling galaxy) really slowed the phone down as I swiped from one home screen to another.
Your best bet is to just root your phone
becuase i love my phone rooted the new update came out
and it was basically horrilble
i switched to it and i have the samsung moment
i was running 2.1 dd10 before the update 2.1 dd03 with 7 screens and a helix lancher 1.2v
and i have no sprint software such as bejeweled and no sprint nav and everything is fine
and loved it and converting back to the leaked version now
i think sprint played us with this update
and i will be waiting for the HTC Evo
Am I correct to assume that rooting your phone will invalidate any warranty you have ?
Or if the worst happens and you get a bad flash and cannot recover your phone ( brick the phone )
you will be "up the creek without a paddle" ? Please dont say it doesnt happen as ive seen a number
of handsets become useless with firmware updates.
I also feel we have been played by Sprint. the 2.1 updates seen on other phones with similar hardware
specs has no reason or excuse to not have those features considering the moments 800 mhz processor.
The one thing I will say is that since updating my moment to 2.1 the battery life has been horrificly poor.
I have turned off every feature including background data sync. display animations.. GPS ( of course ) and more
but yet still get a dead battery within 8-10 hours with NO phone calls and 2-3 times checking email in that time period.
I use my phone for business and am astonished that my moment has almost the same battery life as my samsung NC10 NETBOOK !
This needs fixing as a matter of urgency or at least offer the customers a chance to rollback to CL14 (Cupcake)
I have had the 2.1 leaked and hacked version for 3 weeks now. and i have both t2s and live wallpapers.. i have experianced no more lag then the the moment produced out of box.. i love it, and if the update does not support either of these it is a wasted update and not worth the time it takes to download the samsung update tool or drive to sprint..
I'm sure there was a reason they didn't include it. I for one like the update no matter if it includes eyecandy or not. Having said that though I looked up processor speeds for the Motorola Droid and found it has only 500 MHz and is compatible with Android 2.1. Moment has a 800 MHz so it should be fine. The Nexus One has 1 GHz.
They should of included it and let thier consumers determine if they want to switch it on or not.
The Motorola Droid also uses a different processor that while slower in MHz than the Moment, does more per clock cycle making it as fast or possibly faster than the Moment.
Live wallpapers can slow the phone down and decrease battery life and do nothing for adding function to the phone. It's nice to look at...that is about it.
TECHNICALLY IT DOES VOID IT BUT IM NOT GOING OVER BOARD WITH ROOTING
I WAS JUST IMPATIENT AND GOT THE LEAK AND HAPPEN 2 LOVE IT BECAUSE IM HAPPY WITH
THE LOOK AND MY SETTINGS AND PLUS DO WAT EVERY MOMENT DOES.
BUT I UNDERSTAND I MEAN ITS JUST TRAIL AND ERROR BECAUSE
ITS JUST THE SAME AS JAILBREAKING A IPHONE/IPOD
AND WELL FAR AS THE BATTERY YES I HAVE LIKE 6 CHARGERS UGHH...
YEA THA STARFIELD RUNS SUPER SMOOTH
BUTTTT AND YET IT WAS RANKED HIGHLY IN
THE MARKET SOOOO ITS SAYS ALOT 2...BUT
ON THA OTHER HAND...THE NEXUS LIVE WALLPAPER
RUN KINDA NICE TO AND FUNCTIONAL.
