    Anyone actually give this a try? i am totally loving it, havent had any problems with it so far and mem leak is gone and battery life is beter than it was with .122 full os, and noticable improvements over v3.5. Would like to hear feedback on what you guys think of this one? i was going to start making hybrids, but i cant really compete with BBC :blackeye: so this is what i came up with, and i really like it. from the few findings ive found its not getting bad reviews.

    Basically for non VIP this is as close to v4 as you will get, untill public release, and for those wondering what modules BBC uses in his builds, when you update your phone using loader, click on Blackberry core applications or whatever it is and go to Details, under the modules tab. It will tell you exactly what versions are being used where.

    (I always use shrink-a-os before install, even though i dont usually install alot of the stuff it removes. that way its guaranteed not to be on there, and for some reason i get improved memory from the start when using it.)

    I concur. I find it silly to run 5.0 files on the storm, even though some of the hardware they control could be similar or exactly the same, they are still different devices. Once 5.0 is leaked for storm, then we will cross that bridge

    I had to do this with my first storm, but i broke it on new years due to excessive alcohol consumption, and my replacement clicks perfectly. not sure if its a fluke or they improved it. either way, mine works perferct where the other one had to have paper under battery (which i didnt like, especially because battery pulls were common then)

    Do us a favor, remove the battery and look at the sticker that is attached to the wall of the battery housing. It should say where it was manufactured. I've had several replacement storms and the ones made in Canada were all bad. the I received one manufactured in Mexico and it clicked great. Curious to see if yours was also made in Mexico.
