Another couple shots in the dark (sorry in advance for EXTREME REDUNDANCY!)
1. Have you tried using different golden updates downloaded from different instances (i.e. the first time you downloaded it something went wrong)
2. Have you tried downloading the file through different computers (i.e. the computer downloads it wrong for some reason).
3. Have you tried the modified updates that worked for some people (I assume you did, but you never know)
4. Have you tried using someone's file that previously used it to successfully update correctly.

I just came back from a chainfire corruption, so there's hope. I was plugged into the computer while it was updating if that could possibly make a difference (it doesn't I know it).

How to catch boot log

Here is how you can catch boot sequence on your device using adb:

- issue command

adb logcat -c

to clear what's there.

- Without disconnecting the device from a computer turn it off.

- Turn it on.
Wait until it booted up completely.

- issue command

adb logcat -f /sdcard/mylogggg.txt

- issue command

adb pull /sdcard/mylogggg.txt

You can do it now while your device function properly and save.

If later on the device starts to behave strange you can pull a new log and compare. It might help to find a culprit.

Also, files of interest:

/tmp/start.log
/tmp/fix-perms.log

Did you clear the log before trying to catch it?
Did you wait long enough? It takes some time.
Do you have enough space? sdcard here refers to internal memory, not SD card - this one is extsdcard.

All apps associated with speech-voice I know off use Android APIs Pico TTS. The app sends a text to Google's servers, they convert them into speech-voice and send back over cell connection. Speech recognition works the other way around: sends voice to servers over cell and text back as data.
It's claimed 1.6 used to support 3G modems, but I haven't heard anyone successfully use them on 2.2.

Voice Search works by itself, no cell needed.

I have no idea what's Moboplayer, but if you provide a reference where to get it I might look at that. Have you checked thread
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=144467
where I explained three major reasons the apps refused to be installed. Since moboplayer comes from the Market it's signed, so, only two remains.

Look through the forum, there are posts about text to speech and the fact you need supporting libraries. I have 'talk to me' running on my EE with out problems and acting as a translator.

Good sign you might have problems with installation

When you're tring to install an app it first ask you for permissions. If it ask for

Storage
____modify/delete SD card contents


it's very likely you're going to have problems, e.g.,

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=146459


Also, the app may ask for

System tools
____prevent eDGe from sleeping


then you might have a problem with Hibernate.

I agree with ptsenter here! If app has the modify/delete sd card contents, I usually can't install the app. And he's also right - in most cases, if the app prevents sleeping, your pe won't hibernate.
