I found a little bug in the new version 1.8.99.105. If you go to the Scoreboard and try to enter your Facebook name and password it doesn't allow any text. First it takes forever with the "Loading" message and when it displays the FB screen, you can click on the fields for name and pw, but it doesn't open the on-screen keyboard and if you use the Milestone hardware keyboard you can't enter any text.

Same problem here with version 104 and 105 too.


Same here.

Also having this problem in .105 - and it appears that the "Loading" box is stacking on top of itself numerous times. I can hit the back arrow a number of times until it lets me click a field on the Facebook page, but it won't accept hardware keyboard input nor does it bring up the software keyboard.

Hi,

small update on the version 1.8.99.106, FB connectivity is still not working. After you click on the connect button, a loading screen pops up, but nothing happens, you have to click the "back" button on the phone 3 times to make these messages disappear and it seems that there are actually 3 loading messages as you can see them fade after each press of the back button.
After you removed the loading messages you can click on the name and pw boxes, but you can't enter anything...

To anyone using a Nexus one with these beta versions, have you had the following problem:

My hypothesis is that while in Waze touch input near the bottom or in the bottom half of the screen is perceived as touch input at the very bottom of the screen.

When trying to report a problem on the bottom half of the Nexus One while in Waze, i am often presented with reporting a 'foursquare check-in' report, though i'm trying to report a 'chit chat'. It usually takes several tries to get to the 'chit-chat' report. Once i'm in to the chit chat, i want to enter a description, so i tap the description text box (near the top of the screen). No problem. I'm in the text box now, the keyboard pops up. Now i'm not using the android keyboard but Swype (you swipe to each letter in the word to create your text). Now i feel this way because in the Swype keyboard you can half your Swype path be recorded. When i start typing any key away from the bottom of the keyboard, that touch input is immediately recorded as a touch at the bottom of the screen. I assume this is what is happening when i am in the 'select reports' screen as well (why i get a foursquare check-in report when i want a chit chat).

This is hard to explain but is anyone else experiencing a similar issue on your Nexus One with Waze? This has not happened in any application besides waze since i've had this Nexus One (3 months).

I have had no problems similar to this. It sounds like it's a calibration issue, though you said you're only having this problem in waze, so that's a bit strange....

I've heard of similar reports with the touchscreen that were not specific to Waze, but related to the phone being docked (or was it when on power?!). Do you use a dock? Is the phone powered? Could you test without the power cord attached?

I have had this exact same issue a few times. It's very annoying because it only happens with Waze. No other application causes this to happen.

Here is how I fix it most times. I lock the phone with the toplock button and then unlock it again after a couple of seconds. About 75% of the time the screen is fine. The other 25%... well that requires me having to power the phone down completely and restart it again. :cry:

Version 1.8.99.105 ( http://tiny.cc/1899105) is supposed to resolve this issue. We'll appreciate your feedback,


It still doesn't work in 1.8.99.106.
