go to adjbrightness>menu>options>scroll all the way down (the menu is bugged) select Lock off button light.
should be good to go
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
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.

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.
