Hey drriley, unfortunately Eclipse (nitroglicerin33) likely won't be updated. Nitro has already said he'll do it if someone will lend him a Charge as he no longer has the device, but there's no gaurantee. Infinity (imnuts) definitely won't be updated. Here's the thing, the fp1 to fp5 build is very minor and most won't notice any difference at all. Especially if you're not using the phone or data part of the phone. If you want to stay on eclipse then just stay where you're at. The only real reason for you to update at this point is if you want to be on tweaked.
:( I has a sad. Something went wrong, I have no idea (really) and I had to return to stock and update to FP5. My radios are all wonky. I can't connect my bluetooth audio to my Samsung laptop anymore, or if it does, it's intermittent. I'm so confused. I reinstalled Eclipse, nada. I reinstalled stock, nada. I reinstalled Windows (not because of this, had a video driver error that caused a horrendous crash) and figured that would fix it (because the bluetooth was wonky prior.) and installed the latest Samsung BT drivers. No go.
Can changing all of these roms and software cause the radios to go kablooey?
If I remember correctly, the radios are separated from the other software and can be flashed just like flashing a kernel. I guess that flashing other stuff could have corrupted the radio files but I don't think it likely. Unless the FP5 update had the radios included. I'm still on FP1 so I don't know what FP5 changed. Also, is Eclipse able to run on FP5? I thought it could not. You may want to flash Tweaked instead.
Can the laptop connect to another BT device? Can the phone connect to another BT device? Let's assume (since you just reloaded the laptop) that the computer is fine.
What radios are installed on the phone? Have you tried re-flashing the radios only? You may want to flash to an older set of radios to see if that helps you any, if it doesn't then just flash back to the latest you can.
*edit* I looked around and all I have is the old EP4D modems handy. I can't find a link to the FP1 modems only. I thought Imnuts had a file posted somewhere but I can't find it right now.
What js mentioned. You can flash the radios separately and there was a change. You can find them here: http://rootzwiki.com/index.php?/topic/32311-[FP5]-Deodexed-ROM#entry893801
Not sure what happened as I've had not BT issues on fp5 but could be something wrong happened during the ota.
Also what did you use to return to stock? Thus is the guide we use and has been reliable. If flashing the radios doesn't work I'd return to stock and start fresh using this guide: http://www.chargeforums.com/forum/showthread.php?p=4140

There is no ODINable version of either fp1 or fp5 modems. If you are on ep4d (there is an ODINable version available for that) you can look for the modem updater cwm zips - there's one that goes from ep4d to fp1h and another that goes from fp1h to fp5e. Otherwise you'll have to do the OTAs in order to update the modems.
I restored to the original stock. Then updated OTA to FP5. I followed the guide for Eclipse/Tweaked to the letter. It did work, but something went wrong between the hardware and the software. I'm not blaming the software. I think I actually did receive a troubled phone. Fortunately it's only a few months old and still under warranty and contract, but it's the downtime and redoing everything that's a pain. Once I customize, I like to leave it. I'm lazy. lol

It installs all the other drivers, I swear there's about 10 of them, and only one won't install. It's very odd.
That was the exact guide I used. It was super easy, btw. Kudos to the brilliant folks here.

The laptop's chip is 3.0. I believe the Charge is 3.0 as well. (I could be wrong, because one page I read said 4.0, not sure which.) Could those slight changes throw it out of whack all of a sudden?
I did Google the Charge and Bluetooth and plenty of people had problems with Ford Sync and Hyundai cars. (Or maybe it was Honda...) Either way, there does seem to be some kind of a flaw in the hardware. One of the quotes I read said "Not quite ready for primetime, but pretty." Heh. Seems to be true.
But, it's not just the Bluetooth. The software itself has always been buggy since the day I got it out of the box. The keyboard will disappear in texting, just out of the blue. I'll be typing, things will be going normally, and I'll see the phone lag for just a second or two, and then the keyboard disappears. Something running in the background causes it to flub up. Also, charging the phone seems to draw resources on the processor and RAM. Which is incredibly odd. I know it sounds silly, but I make none of this up. I figured it was something I just had to become accustomed to with Android. I quickly found out that it's not.
Even with these flaws, I still love the phone and Android. I wouldn't go back to an iPhone if you paid me. *shudders*
FYI...on Eclipse Rom's forum, someone is sending Nitro a droid charge, so we may be seeing an updated version of Eclipse in the near future.
Here's the original thread if you want to keep up to date!
[ROM][FP1] Eclipse Charge v2.0 (4/3/12) - Page 27
He would have to change it drastically to make me switch over. Tweaked has so many options and sweet themes, it's tough to outdo.
That being said (and appreciated of course) - it's nice to have options and it's a solid one.
