Haven't done anything to it... random crashes, battery lasts half as long, vibrator goes off intermittantly for no reason, runs half as fast doing anything, reset all my setting for everything upon install, reception sucks, gets really ******* hot for no reason, takes twice as long to charge... and the only ******* thing I can find that it did was add a "silent" quickbutton. I thought Froyo was supposed to be the ballz... it's been complete ****.

So, I'll take a shot at the "clean install". How do I know where all my contacts are stored? I don't know if they're in Google, but I'll see about activating that function. If I pull my SD card, all the data is still avail so I think it's inside the phone memory... how do I transfer all my contacts to the SD card so I don't lose any just to be sure?

All I'll really need to reload is Pandora, The Weather Channel, and my Leeroy Jenkins soundbytes.

How do I perform the "clean install"? Spoon-feed pretty please.

I decided to try the free easytether last night and it worked like a charm on non-https sites.

RunKeeper is a good app for any kind of outdoor exercise. I use it for cycling, my parents use it for hiking, my sister uses it for running. It shows your route on google maps, and gives you pinpoint elevation and speed data graphs which match up with the map.

ConvertPad for any kind of unit conversion you could think of.

RealCalc for a scientific calculator

Barcode Scanner, i used it in the store while shopping tv's instead of driving to every store to cross-shop the same model

Gmote to use the phone as a remote touchpad/keyboard for the computer over wifi, good for watching hulu without getting up while the laptop is hooked up to the tv

Just exported all my contacts to SD card... just hit the menu button inside CONTACTS and there's a quick-key for it (Import/Export).

For samsung epic only

go into your contacts, select a contact, look at the "joined contacts" section of the contact. if it has a google "g" there, then it's saved to google. When you create a new contact, do you save it as a "google" contact, or a "phone" contact? "google" contacts save on google's servers to your google account. "phone" contacts are locally stored in phone memory.

Guide here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki...axy_S/SPH-D700

Download and install these:
ODIN software
ODIN phone drivers under "software"

Download the ROM from one of the 3 links on this page (about 300mb):
EPIC EC05
Alternatively
, use the EB13 update here - 290MB (the EC05 was just a small update to the EB13. EB13 Is the original FROYO OS, and might make for a much easier install given the information in the thread):
EB13 update

IMPORTANT: Make sure you have installed the drivers before starting. Also, remove the SD card from the phone (this may not be necessary, but having the SD card installed has caused Odin to fail for a number of people, so might as well just do it).
1. Open ODIN on your PC (desktops are preferred over laptops and use a USB port that is directly soldered into the motherboard).

2. Put your phone in download mode (Shut it off, wait for lights to all go out, then hold 1 on the keyboard while powering up). Please note that if your phone doesn't go into download mode it is in all probability that you were pushing down on more than the single number 1 key. The download mode shows an Android using a tool to dig through a pile of rubble (no kidding).

3. Connect phone (you should see odin put a Com4 or something like that in the first box. The actual number is NOT important what is important is something popped up there when you connected your device, meaning ODIN can see it)

4. Select the victory_8G_100528.pit on the right in the pit section I didn't even know what this file was originally, so I ignored this instruction.

5. In the PDA Section place the full Stock DI18 tar (SPH-D700-DI18-8Gb-REL.tar.md5 approx 255 MB) for a full wipe and full return to stock. You can get the file from a number of sources here: http://www.multiupload.com/X9AB1U56JV (Use the EB13 link i gave you above)

6. Hit start. It will do its thing. Doesn't take long you can see the progress bar. If it sits on File Analysis for longer than 30 seconds its not going to happen. See the troubleshoot section below.

7. Device should reboot and should be done.
