    Ok got the phone from cold storm today and I am having usb issues :( It will charge only and will NOT allow to see sdcard or htc sync or tether. When hooking it to the PC it says a device has malfunctioned. I have tried three pc's and also tried to install the drivers manaully. I also rebooted in the bootloader and it does the same there. I may have to go back to my OG droid :(

    Stream IceFilms to Android

    download
    MX Video Player

    MegaStream

    and make sure your phone is capable of FLASH Player

    I also recommend Dolphin HD

    Go to www.icefilms.info
    select show or movie.
    On link page Tap on "Sources" it should be on the mid top right.
    From "sources page" Tap on link.
    at MegaUpload page Tap on "Copy to Clipboard"
    Tap Address Bar.
    Tap the link you just "copied to clipboard"
    Megaupload page reloads now select watch on "Megavideo"
    Voila! enjoy

    Sorry if this has been posted
    and add me to the club HTC EVO Shift

    Was the USB mode changed? Did you do a factory reset on the phone when you got it/before it was sent?

    I did a factory reset when I sent out the phone. I've only ever used the usb for the ac unit. Didn't want to root the thing, so I never plugged it into a computer..

    Brandon and I talked last night and played around with a few things. I just sent him back the cash and a little extra. No use in fighting it...

    Well I ended up trying everything I could last night. I went through every setting and tried multiple cables, mircoSD cards, and PCs but same result everytime (USB device has malfunctioned). I am looking around ad Cell phone repair places that deal in this phone so they can replace the USB connector (hoping thats the issue) as of now I am back on my OG droid until I can get this fixed. It not really the need to root it but the need to connect to use the microSD card on my PC and use wired tether when I am at work.

    Cold Storm has been very helpfull and I tried to send the phone back to him but he would not have it. He is truly a great guy!

    I posted a few rebuttals above. No offense intended, just a few opinions/retorts on the points you made, many of which I agree with and believe to be quite valid.

    Heya DD! If you get sick of the Trebuchet launcher, give ADW Launcher a try. I got the apk in my dropbox, just le tme know if you want an invite.

    Anybody here have the Galaxy SII Skyrocket? I have to stick with AT&T, and I'm sick of my Backflip. Don't think I have the patience to wait for the Google phone to arrive at AT&T. Thanks!

    Thanks DD. When you root, I think you should try nova launcher. It's pretty sweet.

    @nastyhabits, any of the galaxy SII series phones are fantastic! my friend has the skyrocket and has nothing but good things to say about it.

    Couldn't you buy an unlocked Galaxy Nexus GSM and use it? If you're worried about a contract upgrade, find a person that wants a new phone but doesn't have an upgrade, work out a price, and buy it for them.

    It's too bad it's ICS based. I would have loved to give it a try on my Froyo based rom.

    Also, you don't need root to side load apk's. Just a file manager that allows browsing root of SD cards, like Astro and ES along with allowing unknown sources.

    Right, but the recommended install method is to place it in /System which does require root. True on your point otherwise though.

    It's not the contract, it's my grandfathered unlimited data plan I want to keep.
