    Other then flash player, are there other improvements between 1.4.5 and 2.1? My main concern is in online forums when I type a long replay the area I type is doesn't get larger or develop a scroll bar so I have no way of going back and changes thing that are out of view. If webso 2.1 fixes this the it along is worth my time to dr 2.1 on my Pre +

    Also, will I lose the hotspot?

    Thanks

    there is a way to go back up in long replies. with the blinking text marker in the text field, hold the orange/gray key and swipe up anywhere on the screen. you should see the the text marker move up or the text move down.

    but if you're writing long replies a lot, consider writing it in an app where you can save often, then copy and paste it into a forum reply.

    Hotspot? freeTether!.
    I like people being able to connect through WiFi, I never have my cable with me. I almost never use hotspot, other people around me use it more then me, it's kind of a show off feature

    Also my screen will scroll as I type with 1.4.5 but it's going back to the things I've already type I can't do.

    I just tried that and it doesn't work, or I'm using it wrong.

    OH!! Don't swipe in the text area, swipe like a gesture! Same as when you throw away cards. I've had my phone a year and just figured this out, I feel like such a dumb

    Thanks!

    Guyfromnam, never mind, I figured it out.

    So I guess I'll continue with the original question, is the browser better? I've also hear there is a new browser for webos, is it better then the webos browser.

    Freetether will let you share your data connection over wifi, so losing the hotspot isn't a big deal.

    The new 2.1 browsers use the same webkit core as the built in browser. They basically just add features.

    What in particular are you looking for in terms of features? It's kind of hard to answer "is it better", which is pretty vague...

    Also, i would recommend using the Forums app instead of your browser, it's way more user friendly.

    freeTether works over wifi, usb or bluetooth.

    Awesome!

    Well one problem is that I can a problem viewing large pictures on the web, it just shows up as a blank spot or page. Seems anything over ~100k.

    I'm wondering what's different. If it's worth my time to dr or if I should just overclock and be happy. There seems to be quite a few issues with 2.1 on non-2 pres.

    Is the acid score any better than on 1.4.5? It is 92 on verizon pre plus for me.
    If this helped you hit thanks.

    I found a patch for the picture resolution raise and it works beautifully! I'm all patched up and clocked to 1ghz and I don't see any reason for me to dicker with 2.1. I think I'll wait until the pre 2 is cheap to buy or wait for my upgrade when the pre3 or better should be out. My upgrade is in july but I have anothe line that is available right now if I get to antzy and can't wait

    P.S. I'm on my pre typing this and it's working flawlessly. I just had to get a few tips from you guys and stop being lazy and look for solutions myself. Thanks!
