    I have to caution you all.. myself, and several other people who have upgraded to *.96 are having MicroSD issues. It appears that the phone is shorting the card out and thats the end of it.. unrecoverable... it could be coincidence... do you wanna take that chance??

    Installed this update yesterday with no problems. I've got a 1gb SD card that appears to be functioning just fine.
    Only minor issue was having to re setup BBWeather.

    This has not been confirmed, only very, very loosely correlated so far.

    I'm with you Kortanis...don't jump to any conclusions about the OS shorting out SD cards. I've only seen 2 cases of this. I just think they were bad cards.

    We need info people.

    IT has never happened before when upgrading an OS. There have been tons of people upgrading their devices and downgrading and upgrading. I think your card frying is an isolated case. You can search the boards and you won't find any other thread about this. Sorry man.

    Unless I slept thru this particular class in electrical engineering (quite possible, I wound up an economics grad) there is no possible way for a software code to "short out" a piece of hardware. Can't be done.

    Quite possible that the OS upgrade was the straw that broke the camel's back for a poorly manufactured card, thats about all I can see.

    2GB data card on my phone and 5 different OS loads/reloads so far, and I haven't even gotten a dirty look from my card. Sorry for your bad luck, bro. Its a hardware failure, not an OS issue.

    I think you're jumping the gun there a little bit. This issue has just been loosely discussed as possible problem.

    You may want to slow your roll a bit with the unsubstantiated warnings.

    Just my $.02

    Does anyone here know about upgrading to this new OS with a mac? I have AT&T, and everything i've found about downloading deals with desktop manager. I have pocketmac. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    I did actually have my card short out, but haven't figured out the cause yet. The new OS was just mentioned as a possible cause. There's no evidence, other than circumstantial, to back it up.
