Temporary Root” that we head about last week. It is being said that the G2 has an internal microchip that flat-out prevents permanent modifications. This may be the cause of the phone resorting back to it's original OS one rebooted that the people over at xda developers were having some trouble with.
The hinge problem may not be directly annoying in everyday use of the phone, but it could be unsettling knowing your phone is not as solid as you would expect it to be. The real issue here is the hinge is especially loose and the screen is hanging when the phone is held upside down, as seen in the image above. A more practical annoying fault of this issue is when you’re holding the phone at some angles, the screen will snap shut. The second issue involves the storage shipping inside the devices not being what users have actually ordered. In some cases shipped G2 that are said to contain 4GB of internal storage and were clocking in with a total of 2GB. We, as well, have no idea how such a mix up would happen but we expect either exchanges for customers made available or a larger microSD card to compensate for the storage loss. More on this issue will definitely be coming in the coming days. To our forum members who have ordered a G2, are you experiencing any issues? Let us know in the comment section below! [Via Engadget]
available for Pre-Order last week, and is shipping soon, will not be supporting tethering at launch. Many of us know that stock Android 2.2 does in fact support tethering right off the bat. However, 2.2 on the G2 will not due to T-Mobile simply not supporting it as of this time.
