Is there a multilang. version you can post as well?
If I am not mistaken, this version is all language.

Is there a way to add other languages to it?
it works soooo goood!!!!it works great!i'm really happy!
ok here are my findings
files - new icons\graphic
3G\GPRS notifications smaller
desktop application - although seems to be a repeat of messages application
today - can be selected thru homescreen options
home screen preferences - advanced with previews
during upgrade they have changed the icon depicting the blackberry as firmware apps are being loaded
a stack of demo games to trial. or not if you want to save valuable memory!
rsa token works
quickpull free works
slicker faster upgrade (i think!)
seems more fluid a version...accelerometer might be improved....
memory now at 37mb...was about 31 on 230
google in browser app still doesnt work
sms\desktop apps cannot be merged into just using "messages". You could do this before via messages apps options. now you are forced to have sms and messages and desktop - 3!!
keybd ghosting gone - why introduce to only then remove it? Is this feature enabled on storm2's? wondered if rim has decided its a storm2 only feature now.
landscape view on non-precision zen themes. Anything other than the official rim theme seems to try to landscape the portrait background and you get the white bars and icons start to corrupt as you scroll up and down. This is annoying as other themes were fine on 216 and 230.
overall a good version but the theme, 3x message applications, and continuing google fail is really irritating!

What has happened to the iPhone style "letter over the key" option...?
That seems a good idea to me.., I'm always missing the letter as you can't really see what you are pressing...
Ok...running this OS since yesterday afternoon....
Comparing the New 328 to Lyricidal's 296 hybrid that i was running before...
QUICKKKKKKKK....bootup seems like a breeze....it stops at about 3/4 of the way for about 10 seconds and then finishs the load and we're ready to go....by the time security check is done, data and everything else is ready to go....
No lag whatsoever....
especially running the new theme builder 5 generated themes....portrait/landscape is fast...pretty much as quick as the S2 reviews that i've seen....
no lag in typing....all apps work for me so far....
i dont use QuickPull since the boys at QuickLunch have fixed the reset device bugs, thanx guys....
internet is fast....i loaded the BBOS site on there in 6 seconds....i mean usually it used to be longer than that....
Apps Working for me so far:
After all these....
then we come to the MEMORY....one word....WOWWWWW
Before this upgrade i had a major memory leak somewhere and i was running on pretty much 5mb and some times and needed a Bpull at least 3 times a day....
now since last night, i've done 2 battery pulls (installing Apps)
memory? 31MB....steady between 28 and 32....
so i think even though it took a while for us 9500 users to get a nice leak, it was well worth the wait....patience is a good think....
no bugs so far as far as i can tell....i didnt really like the Ghost Key option to begin with...most of the time i dont even look at my Keyboard when typing anyway..plus its just extra CPU usage anyway....
so yeah....any problems, i'll check....
let me know...
google is working fine in my browser. if searching from the search box you mean.

Thank you for detailed feedback!!! As far as themes go, the new theme builder 5 was just released so themes will start being updated and from what I read, it fixes the landscape issue and also adds lanscape homescreens!

I find this new one too cluttered..., I just want to see what I'm typing and not a load of old messgaes in the background...? mfg:
Other thing that drives me bonkers is when you are trying to type in.., it keeps suggesting stuff and trying to guess what word I'm going to put in... I've turned just about everything off, but it's still doing it....
Any help on both of the above would be much appreaciated....
The new sms layout is the threaded sms, so that is in the OS. It will take a little to get used to.

Everythings cool since I've been working with the 328, except the links in my emails (only copy and paste) but please, dear Hybrid creators, bring back the 216 or 230 keyboard with the PopUp keys
Thanks olta.., that's what has got me a bit...

I wiped the phone before installing 220.127.116.118, and I don't use any apps.., nothing else installed...
hmm....interesting. Since Ive upgraded to OS 5 every version my google doesnt work, i just get garbled text which is the search but almost like the raw code...
