  1. “Opening an application and pressing the Back key will no longer cause the application switcher to appear.”
    This one was seriously bumming me out ever since getting my 9930. Talk about annoying, and once it starts doing it the only way I could get back to normal was a reboot. It was clearly tied somehow to the “sleeper” function, as it NEVER happened to me as long as I used a holster without a magnet, but as soon as the “sleeper” function had been initiated once, this bug constantly cropped up.

    Upgrading now…..hopefully I can go back to using the supplied holster. 🙂
