Can anyone confirm that there is support for last.fm scrobbling on 2.2?

Cheers

Paul Obrian confirmed it worked with one of the earlier JP 2.2 firmwares, but sadly not working for me with JPK (I think thats the only thing remaining to make the music player perfect for my use).

TuneWiki works with LastFM, I sometimes use that.

That's a pity, last.fm scrobbling support is important to me, since I use the phone so much for music. Overall I'm very happy to be done with iTunes and Apple, but there have been a few bugs with the player. Sometimes it just refuses to load a new song, but usually comes right when I restart the player. Am mostly happy with the phone for now so will probably just wait for the official release of 2.2.

Wow it's now October and no Froyo in sight apart from the beta leaks. I am disappointed.

Gutted :( much damage?

Mine stays in it's gel case now, my mate dropped his, then had the cheek to ask if he could have the back cover of my phone(because mine is hidden in a case)

Crap.  I've got a case for mine too.  Actually I've got a couple, and a leather pouch.  Just so I can swap and change on a whim :)

Is it OK, did you drop it on a hard or soft surface?  Hope it's OK.

Does the HTC Desire have better battery life than the Galaxy S? I'm lucky if my battery lasts from 7am to 5pm..

Far out, are you running anything extra to cause such crap battery life?  That's probably the worst life I've ever heard of


Are yuo in a shady 3g area?  If you are it'll constantly be searching for the network

Mine is usually 23-60 hours, depending on how long I use Wifi for, how long i play games, it'll last a day of net browsing through 3G, playign Air control for 20 minutes, playing a 20 min video and about 10-20 texts a day, maybe 3 phone calls

You might have a bad battery, did you order it locally or abroad?  I'd send it back or at least ask for a new battery

HTC Desire battery life is worse, by a reasonable margin (I own both).

That said, your battery life is not representative, mine uses about 30% between 7am and 6pm, and thats with hourly Twitter/Facebook/weather updates, push email, full time RSS reader polling (it downloads the full stories too, so the amount of data it pulls is non-negligible), a few calls and texts, bit of browsing/WiFi/Games/Market use etc etc. Something is eating your battery, or its possibly faulty...

I've been suitably impressed with the battery life since going to JPK.  I don't know if there was some settling in period for the battery to begin with (I've read elsewhere there is).  Perhaps it's coincidental I've noticed it since flashing to JPK.

Anyway I used to almost drain my battery to about 30% but now I often only use 30%.  No gaming for me, but I check twitter, have my email, go to the market and fluff about with Foursquare every now and then.  Mess about customising my phone and taking a photo here and there.  I'm not a power user but given how poor the battery life was with the same habitual usage, it's a whole different experience now.

I'm using JuiceDefender. Not sure why my battery life is so poor. I have 2 extra batteries that I got with the wall charger I ordered and they are even worse. I'm running JM1 official with Voodoo Lagfix. My battery life has been terrible since I got the phone, at times it would run out around 2pm at work.

My current battery stats are:
4h 12m since unplugged
75% battery left
32% used on Display
29% Android OS
15% Cell Standby
10% Phone Idle
6% Media server
3% Android System
2% Aldiko eBook

Also forgot my Facebook updates + hourly weather through Beautiful Widget

Is it better with Juice Defender uninstalled?

13h 20m 49 sec since unplugged
37% Cell standby
25% display
24% Phone idle
4% Voice calls
4% Media player
3% Android system
3% beautiful widgets
3% Android live wallpapers
2% Android OS

sitting at 71% battery still using VizBattery widget, your Android OS usage seems to be really high actually, maybe something is keeping it open
