    Question Updated OS and multitap problem.

    Advertisement



    Hey guys,

    I just updated my backup pearl to the newest available OS from Tmobile (4.2.1.107) and it's giving me the double tap multitap problem. The problem is this:

    While using multitap, when I go and hit a key twice to get the second letter on that key, it gives me 2 of the first letter instead of 1 of the second letter. For example, if I hit the "GH" key twice, it will occasionally give me 2 "G"s instead of 1 "H."

    This also happens with the newest OS available (Rogers), which is why I downgraded to the Tmobile OS. So, for all the multitappers out there.. what is the newest available OS that doesn't have the multitap issue?

    Please and thank you!
    Tim.

    Edit: I'm assuming this is an OS issue, because I don't remember it happening with my old OS, and I've seen this issue before a few months ago while upgrading on a different pearl.

    dude i had this same issue boot 3 months ago...i finally just switched to suretytpe...at first i hated it, but forced myself to type on suretype for a boot a week. Eventually it grew on me and thats all i use and have been using for the past couple months. Until the 9000 touches my sweet soft hands that is.

    Give it a shot. Way faster than multi

    I know it's faster, but I guess I'm just oldschool and stubborn. I'm pretty fast with the oldschool keypad texting (NOT T9) and not too shabby with multitap. And I want ALL the features on my phone to work. I don't want to be forced to use suretype because multitap doesn't work.

    Someone out there has to have a working multitap I don't want to spend hours testing out different OS's until I find one that is working..

    I've tried about 5 different OS's.. no luck so far. I was talking to my friend, and he told me he also has the problem since I updated his Pearl 2 weeks ago.
