    Feel the difference?

    Any bugs still need to be ironed out?

    Any new bugs that popped up?

    Using the copy and paste feature?

    Are games and apps loading up faster?

    Has Marketplace searching improved for you?

    What are some things that may not have been mentioned that you feel is different? Good? Bad? Neutral?

    Overall... good update or just waiting for mango?

    I do feel a difference in the OS itself. It seems a bit lighter and faster.

    One bug I experienced was the marketplace and some other apps would show loading and just back out to the home screen. I'll have to see if that's the case still.

    It may not be a bug or may just be the result of being unlocked, but if I have wifi-only for an extended period of time, I can't access the market until I turn cellular on as well.

    Apps do seem to load faster, BirdSong especially.

    I haven't searched the marketplace, but results seem to come up faster.

    Overall, the update was awesome and can't wait for the Mango update.

    P.S. I'm on an AT&T Focus that I unlocked, debranded and took what was mine! haha.

    Grr... Board Express ate my rather long post so I'll just say Nodo cuts game loads significantly, some apps are faster as well, Samsung phones won't notice as big a difference for some apps as others, you can bypass the Microsoft Games Studios screens by tapping them, copy and paste is useful doesn't work or work well in all apps, marketplace search is faster though for apps you do need to go to the app category to search for them.

    That's cool that you can skip the Microsoft Game Studio screens now. They're usually up there for afew seconds. They're probably loading the game when they're up and with shorter load times they're probably not needed.

    Okay, I got it unlocked and some other stuff installed... Was I wrong to assume that NoDo would install on dev unlocked devices?

    I think all around the OS seems snappier and I've noticed the load times are significantly less. I've noticed the copy and paste only works in certain places and with certain apps. Would be nice to have it universal but most of the time I'm just sending web addresses or copying statements from emails so it works out for me.

    The Feb update is a no go. I have NO clue as to why it won't install.

    I'm talking about the Zune player being muted until reboot when you don't exit a game right (or have the game on mute )

    One thing that the update DOES NOT fix is the lag in rendering images on tiles. On more than one occasion, Ive jumped to the home screen from an app, scrolled down my tiles, and none of them were displaying images until a split second after I stopped scrolling. An example would be Alpha Jax which has an image of the Alpha Jax logo on the tile. I dont know if its related, but WMPoweruser has a tip for dev unlocked devices which fixes the issue where live tiles dont update, even if youre well under the 15-app limit for third party apps. There certainly seems to be an issue with tile updates, which is really troubling given that its one of the key strengths of the platform.

    i haven't noticed any performance increase with nodo. i also have had many random reboots since installing. seems to be a common problem if you have a focus.

    i still have yet to figure out what the heck this "marketplace search is faster" feature you guys are referring to is?

    Search displays results faster in the marketplace, at least when you're in the appropriate category. That's one of the first speed improvements I noticed.

    i don't know what you mean by search? i think of search as you type in the name of a game and it comes up. are you talking about just going to a category and it showing up faster?
