    Well, I did the update to 5.1 from 5 yesterday. I was running it over .132 and did the same again over a fresh install. I wiped the phone with Crackmem and did my install and backup. I am usually the only ATT GSM user that reports my findings but I do it for anyone that it may help. So here goes:

    If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't. I am running fine now on 5.1 but my app memory is not significantly higher. It does recover better and a bit faster though. I currently boot up with just under 51megs and I am idling at 31megs after about 20 hours of very light use. I run App World, BerryWeather, UberTwitter, GoogleSync, GoogleMaps, Poynt, BerryBuzz, QuickLaunch, QuickPull, Speedtest, StopTilt and StormSlider.

    For me the memory is not a huge difference but as a GSM user, I am now having alot more trouble getting a full EDGE signal to lock on startup. Previously I could reboot and just run my browser and the phone would lock to EDGE. Now is just bounces and bounces. I usually have to turn off the radio a few times and it will finally catch. When it does catch, it is solid as always. I accidently discovered that if I am driving, the phone locks into EGDE much faster. I am trying to compute this one and figuring it must be that when the phone is switching cells, it locks faster. One more thing I have noticed is it takes longer for the GPS to lock now.

    Anyway, I am not going back to V5 but I wonder if anyone would care to take a stab at reasoning behind the switching cells faster lock or the longer GPS lock. Each phone is different but I like to have a feel for what is going on. Thanks.

    Thanks for your help on this matter.

    As far as all the hybrids go, BBC's v.5.1 seems to be the best one yet!
    Don't feel like a "newbie" over this....Shoot, I had just gotten a new custom theme the night before, and was emailing my guy who made to tell him there was a "bug" in his theme.:261: Then I remembered upgrading to BerryWeather .42 that morning. So I deleted BW and reinstalled it....Well, lookie there!! v.43 is out !!! v .42 was only out like 3 - 4 hours before it was replaced with .43

    My theme buddy and I had a laugh about it.

    Glad I could help.

    Hi , I am trying to figure this out, I have the .132 V5. I am downloading V5.1. Do I need to uninstall .132 and reinstall it thru control panel? If I uninstall .132, can I reinstall it from the original .132 file I downloaded originally or do I delete that to and download .132 again?

    I would prefer to use a fresh .132, also wiping your device before upgrading and backing up all info 3rd party app, to make sure you get the most out of 5.1 and to assure 5.1 is installed

    So delete it then delete the file from mdesktop, then redownload .132 again?

    you dont have to delete the downloaded file. you can use it again to reinstall .132 after you uninstall through control panel.

    Thats what is I did, and i feel its the easiest way to assure you are putting v5.1 on, also when going through app loader and check the files. Here is a how to http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/b...installed.html
