SLINGBOX for Torch better workaround...
For those wanting to use Slingbox with their Torch, I know there are a couple of workarounds out there. One involves editing a bunch of files and the other uses ver. 188.8.131.52 which I believe is for the storm. I found this version very buggy with aspect ratios changing and not able to work on Wi-Fi. It then stopped connecting altogether. Then I tried a suggestion I found on another site. It has been working very well, full screen and wi-fi as well as mobile. THE ONLY TRICK, as before, is you MUST keep the phone in landscape mode both for installing the software AND starting the program. After that, it doesn't really seem to matter. Of course, you will need a strong 3G signal to get any continuity. I have been using it for a week with, really, no problem. I will have to decide after the 30 day trial if I actually want to BUY a slightly flawed product from a company that doesn't seem to care enough to support OS6. A link to this version is below:

Let me know what you think. It may take a couple of tries; it took me three beforwe the phone finally asked to reboot. Remember, KEEP the phone SIDEWAYS through the download AND when STARTING the program.
