    I experienced no random reboots with about 18 hours uptime. I unfortunately had to downgrade cause my contacts in my SIM card would not fully load (ex. I have 250 contacts and about 50 appear). And when I try to painstakingly add the rest back, I see the same number appear twice even if it does not show in my Contacts. And randomly it appears I have no contacts on my SIM card, then minutes later I check again and some re-appear magically. I tested this on my old 8820 and of course all my contacts are on my SIM card.

    The 3G signal holds the best out of all the OS's I've experimented with and rarely drops to EDGE or edge. On the other hand, the browser sometimes stalls and data isn't being transmitted (no arrow movement even with full 3G bars).

    I always follow these steps:

    - Disable internet connection
    - Install new berry OS
    - Make a backup copy of the original OS (not absolutely necessary, I'm just crazy like this)
    - Open Shrink-A-OS, remove all the stuff I never use.
    - Open BBSAK, backup my 3rd party apps
    - Open DM and backup my berry device data

    - Open BBSAK again, and click "Wipe Device", wait for your berry to load up with "Load new Software" (I think this is error 507)
    - run `loader.exe /nojvm' (C:\progra~1\common files\research in motion\apploader\)

    - once OS is installed, restore 3rd party apps via BBSAK
    - battery pull (once)
    - restore all data from DM
    - battery pull (twice)

    - re-enable internet connection


    Doing this, I've never had a problem with any OS (other than true bugs, quirks)

    elementx: I like your method of updating/restoring your BB. It took a bit longer -- the first time -- but I think it'll be faster the next time.

    Thanks.

    Mine was doing ok for about 12 hours... I did a complete wipe before i installed the .314.... after 12 hours of uptime, memory use was really heavy... after a couple hours my flash memory fell below 10 mb...

    Surprisingly even with the low memory, the phone's still very responsive. I did a restart when the flash memory fell below 1 mb... then after the reboot... i was chatting on BBM, all of a sudden the phone rebooted itself....

    I just did another wipe on my phone and installed the .314 again, hopefully the problem won't stay. Now I have to redownload that freakin BBM5.0.0.33 OTA then restore my BB backup file.

    I rewiped my bold, and it still did the random reboot, looks like I'm switching back to the 4.6.0.303 for now.... the official OS 5 is just around the corner anyway... I'll just stay on OS 4.6 until the official one is released..

    For those who see their BB rebooting all the time, try reformatting your memory card.
