    This is working like my old .132, transitions are quick, signal strength is fine and battery is lasting. Memory will drop down (starts at 36, drops to high 20's but then pops back up to the mid 30's). Definitely will keep this one for a while.

    A question.... I installed the .132 as the base and then the hybrid over it (and used shrink os). Is there any benefit to using .141 as the base with the .132 V5 over it. Are there any "extra" .132 or .141 files left over that are not replaced by the V5 installer - or if I compare the two installations is the only file that is different the CDMA radio file?
    The reason for the two different radio codes is that some people have experienced problems with Bluetooth with the 141 sfi file. Both Hybrids are identical except for the sfi file.

    i would think its more some phones run better with 141, some with 132... my build using 141 radio is running great, but maybe i will try the 132 afterall

    Trust me it doesn't help for me I have already tried that. But then again it really doesn't bug me all that much, I have just learned how to "tap" for it to work right.

    After installing, your battery will get partially charged and then drain very quickly afterward. Try draining the battery almost all the way then give it a real good full charge, (i like to do 12 hours if possible) then see how batt life is. Couple other tricks to improve battery life are turn your screen brightness ALL the way down to 10, backlight to 20s and keep GPS off when not in use. My storm runs for 2 full days easily sometimes close to 3 when not used much. also if you use patternlock and set the settings right, it improves batt life a little bit too by turning the backlight off faster than normal. See if that helps
    thanks for the advice ill try it, i dont really like the normal theme it just looks way too boring for me. i use the visa since my laptop runs visa as well so its easier since im use to it. since i did a reinstall and installed bbcrack .141/v5 my memory has not go down below 40, i hope it will stay that way.

    As for the battery drain it ALL THE WAY UNTIL IT IS DEAD (past the point where the radio turns off) then recharge it fully. This will semi-flash the memory of your battery and should increase its life.
    lol i didnt think the apps i have installed was consider :a lot: but since i installed BBcrack .141/v5 my memory never went below 40mb =]

    my battery seem to be doing a lot better after a battery pull, if it starts with an abnormal drain again ill do the draining method you suggested, thanks

    It's not the amount of apps that matter it's what apps you use. You can a 100 hundred apps and have no memory issues but have 4 apps and experience serious memory drain. I was just pointing out the apps you listed are all known to have memory issues.
