I can finally hide extension buttons on my Cr-48! Things were starting to get a bit unruly with buttons I never even needed to use.

The trackpad is working so much better. THANKS!

Now my 3g keeps getting deactivated, but I'm on wifi 99% of the time anyhow.

I've updated to and the trackpad improvement is phenomenal! It's like I took a virtual piece of plastic and covered up the upper corners. I've blogged several paragraphs and not had a single jump---and I've completely straightened out my wrists for the first time in 12 weeks with the Cr-48. This is a major game changer for my usage. I hope that it continues to get better.

I've been wanting to get back to Beta from the Dev channel for a few weeks. My dev build number is the same as this beta build, does that mean I have to wait until the next beta update to switch?

@Vincenzo now is the time to switch before a Dev channel update is pushed by Google .

The beta channel is selected in the drop down menu, but an update is not found. I think this is because the build number must be newer than the previous one. Because of this I can't switch to Beta mode.

Thanks for the trackpad updates. Working much better now....the scrolling is what I was most annoyed about earlier, but now it scrolls the way I want it to. :-)

The right-click (2 finger click) works much accurately now. =]
