    I’m running Android 2.3.7 thanks to CyanogenMod. Why are these carriers, who have so much money, so far behind?

    I am running 2.3.4 as of Monday, 10/17. Everything is working well so far regarding the upgrade. However, skipping during mp3 playback in the Music app has not been fixed. If anything, it’s worse. I know it is not the mp3 files, because if I copy them to another device or my PC, they play just fine. Everything else is good, but this one is a fail.

    Just a SWAG, but, does the existence of the dual core processor make the port more difficult and time consuming?
