    Stick with .114 v3 or go to .122 v3.5

    Should I stick with .114 v3 or go to what I believe is .122 v3.5

    My device runs alright now with v3. I get about 41 megs on fresh boot, battery can last me 24 hours on full load or 48 on slight load. Device lags just a little bit.

    Currently stays in 1XEV unless I'm in highly enclosed areas. then it goes to 1X

    Is it worth upgrading?

    It really depends on the users. Some say the differences are not really noticeable and others do. I would just recommend trying out 3.5 and if you don't like its easy enough to downgrade back to v3.

    I tried to go back to v3 from v3.5 because it was worse for me, but after overwriting the files, deleting vendor.xml, etc., and then running Loader.exe, nothing happened.

    So I performed a wipe with JL_Commander, loaded .114 Hybrid, and then loaded v3. Now my phone just sucks. After a battery pull I can't even get 20MB free app memory, and it runs down to the low single digits during the day while being holstered (I leave it in my vehicle because I can't take it into the limited area that I work in).

    My life needs a giant undo command right about now!

    Point is, if v3 is working for you, then you might want to consider leaving well enough alone. The grass isn't always greener on the other side of the hill!

    Have you tried wiping again, then reloading v3. Sound to me that something got corrupted in the process.

    You might also want to try loading on top of .113 instead of .114 since .113 seems to be more stable for most. Worked for me, but all phones react differently.
