    This build was doing pretty good till a few hours ago. getting major screen glitches all over the place, and batt pulls are killing my battery life like never before... not so impressed though it was a slight improvement over v3.5. For my device i think i still prefer my old build of .132 sfi/v3.5 java. Gonna try some combos with the new 141 sfi and i think im onto something

    ive had that same prob, 25% is a little exaggerated but we will see. gonna try some more variations of BBCMS v4 and 3.5

I did a fresh wipe then 132 then v4. Also, battery life is just OK, which is a big problem for me. (I am going to do the full drain though and see how that fares).

    But the camera is significantly better, the OS "feels" snappier and better.

    If I can get the battery issue resolved and get it to stay on 1EXV. I will stay with this build. 114 v3 (or is it just known as v3?) was really good for me. The battery life was ridiculous! I thought the meter was stuck.! I was considering gong back to 114v3 but I may not.

    Anyone have any suggestions as to how to deal with the radio issue? The battery I can work with. I know better than to leave any streaming or GPS draining progs running....I'm not a noob.

    I'm having the same problems with V4. My battery is fantastic but my Ev1 drops on and off. I have even tried the *228 option 2. V4 has been the best thing for my phone. I was running v3.5 .109 and that worked well but the battery and memory drain killed me on V3.5. V4 is great I just need to figure out how to keep the Ev1 from dropping on and off. Is there a way to load .109 on v4? If I can would that fix my problem?

    The radio code and battery life go hand in hand. Which OS did you use that gave you the best battery life? Whichever one that was you can take the SFI file (which is the radio code) from the CDMA folder copy it and paste it into the CDMA folder for v4.

    Re battery life. I had a big drop after first installing V4 but after 3 days the battery is now holding up well. After about 28 hrs of use since last charge I'm only down one bar (20-25%). Memory has also settled in at 33-35MB which in my mind is real good. So far very pleased with this build. I think you have to give your system a few days to settle in and then see where things stand. :01:

    Hey people. What's BBC's and the team's opinion about .141? Should we wait or go for it? You guys do such great stuff I'm reluctant to switch (even though I want to) just for he sake of change. Let us know what you think????:dunno:

    Is the CMDA folder connected to my signal strength/EV1? Because everything would run perfect with V4 if I could just receive better signal strength. I have Verizon, so I'm wondering what others have tried with V4 to receive the best signal strength? It is just really frustrating knowing that I'm so close to THE PERFECT STORM with V4, and the only thing holding it back is my signal strength. Any ideas, espically using Verizon?

    I have not tried all of the different hybrids just because it takes forever to reload everything after wiping my BB. Thanks for everyone's help! You guys have done a great job!

    Yes lauterbock, the CDMA (.sfi) controls your signal. Initial reports say that the .141 OS .sfi appears to be an improvement from previous builds.
