    .314 Is working well for the most part. I have noticed a faster response in general and faster load times.
    Gmail contacts syncing wonderfully!
    A few things i have noticed though:
    Volume key seems to be unresponsive at times
    Viigo Does not work at all it locks the phone up
    Did not install VVM( i tried to restore with BBSAK, however no dice on the restoral of my apps, any ideas for an alternative?)

    oh and Tweet genius is working far better on this version, i was getting a strange double icon in app switch, one of which would cause a lock. that no longer happens with this version

    My experiences

    I installed .314 after first doing a BBSAK device wipe and removing the SD card. I have not had any reboot issues whatsoever. But then again, for what it's worth, I always remove my SD card before a wipe/OS load, and I never restore anything ... I always look for and download the latest apps, and configure all of it from scratch.

    Here's my experiences:

    [THE GOOD]
    -- The ability to reconfigure a theme's downloads folder is fantastic and works well.
    -- Reconnecting to my company's BES worked well, although just after the encryption services were verified it demanded a reboot. Never seen this before. But after rebooting, the rest of the activation went flawlessly.
    -- BES Desktop messages now has it's own icon.
    -- Enhanced GMail plugin is built-in, and works great.
    -- I had to copy the .alx and .cods for Visual VoiceMail from the .238 build, but it works flawlessly.
    -- The latest version of these apps all work perfectly: Google Voice, Google Maps, GMail, ScoreMobile, Poynt, Dictionary.com, AOL Radio Player, QuickLaunch, and all of RIM's IM clients.
    -- The latest beta of BerryBuzz (directly from the bellshare.com forums) works like a champ. I don't use the reminders that are mentioned at the end of the forum thread, so that issue doesn't impact me.
    -- The latest prod release of BerryWeather works like a champ. This was broken in .238.

    [THE WEIRD]
    -- The latest version of Vlingo works great, but seems to often forget the side button assignment. Only a reboot will correct it; I cannot seem to do anything to correct it otherwise.
    -- While I'm on a call, I see the notification icons displayed (for things like new message, etc) but there is no item count.

    [THE BAD]
    -- Facebook 1.7 sucks serious donkey's ass, and m.facebook.com seems to think my device won't support 1.6. It's dreadfully slow, and while it does indeed nuke the incoming notifications from my mailbox, is often chooses to just put them in the bit bucket and never reflect them in the app. Patently awful.
    -- While on the phone I hear the sound break up for a few seconds, on an interval, both through the handset and bluetooth. Muting my line seems to correct it. This definitely did not occur in .238.
    -- Some themes that worked well on the .238 build do not work so well on this one, due to the updated UI.

    I noticed the same issue re: the "New Message ICON" while on a phone call. Since it doesn't affect the use of the phone, I don't really care about it.

    I was worried about VVM... But since Google Voice allows you to forward your VoiceMails to it: I took the compromise and I think I'll enjoy Google Voice more than the BB VVM.
