Don't be fooled by the threats of voiding your warranty, you can always downgrade if you have to.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!These are my findings as of today!!!!!!
(I posted this in the crackberry forum)
I will have to say after running all these beta os's (or whatever one want's to call them) the only radio so far that I can remember worked good was .90 but it would start to reboot the phone after 3+days on the phone.
All the newer ones (as far as I can remember all give me problems!) either reboot, network (internet), DROPPED CALLS!! (this one is the killer for me), besides the other problems this thing has !!
I am going to go back to .65 and .75 and see how it goes with these 3 problems that are killing me! So hopefully this POS phone starts to work properly with one of these or something!
So far for me every time I load an OS it work's good for 3-4 days then kaput!!!
Well I loaded up .65 today then had to load .75 on top due to some apps not working at all and the big shocker to me was that out of all the betas I used and thought (as you all do) that each beta was getting better, faster, and more reliable than the last---- it was all BS they are actually worse = color banding, rebooting, dropped calls, internet with some apps stopped working over time, etc.... Like I stated on my last post "every time I load an OS it work's good for 3-4 days then kaput!"
Maybe what we just need is a memory cleaner for .75 and all will be well!
I know I am not at my 3-4 days yet but today like every other OS (with the exception to .90, supper fast but way too many reboots after the 3 days on) my network is pretty fast, I HAVE MY CALL LOG BACK (huge thing to me) with the left button, no color banding, and will see how everything else goes in 3+ days. The only thing I miss is the full keyboard in portrait.
So the only thing I can find different than all of the beta OS's I used (I did use all of them) is I wasted a lot of time (a really lot) as of day 1 with .75 back on!!!
So now I am off to find a great memory cleaner (I think there is one in the app store, $10 but if it does work that is cheaper than the time wasted with these betas) then again I sure did learn a lot -- how to wipe, recover from bricking, etc...
remember that you have the hybrids as a choice as well. the Version 5 is one of the best. .75 is just too slow.
lol. have him try using your storm for a few hours. .75-v5 is a huge difference, you should install v5.1 if u havent already. he should notice a difference right away. unless somehow his phone runs good on .75 which is basically impossible. If hesworried about voiding the warranty, all he has to do is downgrade back to .75 or any official verizon release and they cantsay anything about it.my 2 cents

He's in to much of a hurry to get his fix...doesn't do a backup craps his install....oh no now his addiction has bricked his berry.
Freaking out not thinking straight he turns to a life of crime.
All because you forced him into upgrading from his happy place .76
Dude I just couldn't live with that. Can you
Ha ha so true....but that's the whole fun of it....and another point you missed: even if there is no leak, the addicts (we are) still have to mess with the OS....cause we know we can always make it better

Whether that's true or not doesn't really matter but I will post later with what he thinks of having a new OS. He came straight from .75. Thanks for all the advice anyways, guys and gals.:cool2:
