Re: Workarounds

Anonymous commenter at Slashdot suggests modifying the following entry in /system/build.prop:

media.stagefright.enable-player=false

(Root is required to modify build.prop)

Do NOT do this until further research is done. Users on XDA are reporting that disabling Stagefright in this way can result in an unrecoverable boot loop.
