    AdjBrightness from the market has an option in it's menu to turn the buttons' lights off. I know where they are, I don't need them on at night, and now when the screen brightness is turned down, I don't have those buttons making it pointless.

    Thanks to BigKitty over at M3 forums for this info.
    I can't figure out how to adjust the buttons any help?

    In the app adjbrightness, go into the menu, scroll down to the bottom. Lock off button light is the option you want.

    Tap Option ---> Then scroll down to the bottom of the settings... it may only look like it's got 2 options, but try scrolling. ----> There'll be a check box near the bottom that's all by itself, that's the Lock Backlight on Buttons off..

    HSDPA = Fastest 3G
    HSUPA = Fast uplink speeds
    UMTS = the transitional network to bridge EDGE and HSPA(+).

    I should also note that HSDPA/HSUPA are both covered under the UMTS spec.
    I downloaded and ran (just once - I'll try multiple times soon and figure out the average) the SpeedTest.net app from the Market, and I got 1.39Mbps down and 0.35Mbps up, with the "3G" indicator showing on my notification bar. From what I can tell, this implies that the Backflip is using 1.8Mbps HSDPA mode. EDGE maxes out at 236Kbps.

    UMTS is described by Wikipedia as "using 3GPP, supports maximum theoretical data transfer rates of 42 Mbit/s (with HSPA+), although at the moment users in deployed networks can expect a transfer rate of up to 384 kbit/s for R99 handsets, and 7.2 Mbit/s for HSDPA handsets in the downlink connection. This is still much greater than the 9.6 kbit/s of a single GSM error-corrected circuit switched data channel or multiple 9.6 kbit/s channels in HSCSD (14.4 kbit/s for CDMAOne), and—in competition to other network technologies such as CDMA2000, PHS or WLAN—offers access to the World Wide Web and other data services on mobile devices."

    Hope this clears some stuff up, it certainly did for me

    *EDITS*
    Test #2: 1.66Mbps down, 0.34Mbps up
    Test #3: 1.54Mbps down, 0.29Mbps up
    Test #4: 1.79Mbps down, 0.35Mbps up
    Test #5: 1.74Mbps down, 0.34Mbps up

    The Backflip is using HSDPA.

    Yeah I need help too ....

    I rooted mines, removed all the AT&T crap and used the stock music application. Used SetCPU and set the minimum when awake at around 400 and lower when sleep.

    Anyways it still feels so, ehhhhh despite the fact it's rooted. Don't get me wrong I appreciate the hard work.

    But I heard you can make your own custom ROM by using Motorola's source files (which they posted for public use a few months ago). I just don't know how the process works and I heard you need to be using Linux Ubunta on your computer to make one. I've never used Linux in my entire life so I don't know if I want to try it out I'll probably just use a USB version.

    Anyone know how the process works though?

    Despite us being rooted now, I for one won't be wasting much more time screwing around with this phone. With the end of the third quarter rolling around, we should be expecting 2.1 soon and then I'll get modding.
