    New ROM

    Internally at VZW there is a new ROM for the Saga that I loaded up today.
    Not too much difference visually.
    However......

    Google maps works right out of he box (well you have to turn Location ON)
    Funny thing is that VZNav doesn't work.
    This is a known issue and will most likely be fixed before it is released.

    Before you ask...
    NO! I won't post it, upload it to an FTP, or email it to you.
    I like my job way too much for that.
    Sorry.

    You wait until it is released to the public, or try to find somebody that doesn't value their job as much as I do.

    Brent, can you email this to me when you get a chance, Thanks!


    Just kidding... thanks for the update, I was beginning to get a little discouraged until I heard this.

    Are you in a position to take suggestions for fixes that should be applied to the new ROM?


    Thanks,
    Jon

    No, I am sorry to say I am not.
    I just happen to know where on the network they are kept, so I check there regularly.

    Without putting your job in jeopardy can you let us in on what else is updated with the new ROM?

    Thanks

    There mute button is moved when in a call. It is now the lower left button. Where the mute button was is now a button called "notes"

    There is an icon called retry SMS. Run it and it looks like a little database of any failed SMS msgs you tried to send

    Of course.... thebest is Google Maps works.. sorta
    Still won't find satellites, but it locates me within seconds of starting up.

    alerts now play over bluetooth
