Giving your OS a chance to settle in may help with your frustrating matter. I know exactly what you are talking about and it can be a pain in the b*tt!

Glad to report that my battery problems mentioned in my previous post seems to have resolved itself. I'm happy to say that my phone has been rock solid all day with me using it pretty hard. Memory has been unchanged for the most part since startup. Loving it, thanks for the hybrid!

Best hybrid to date!
So far coming from straight .151
I am 4 days in and here are my results so far using bbcrackman's with Hybrid V8:
--Color is great!
--Battery Life is UNBELIEVABLY LONGER!
--Browser is Lightening fast!
--No freeze ups (Unlike 5.0)
--ALL of my 3rd Party apps work. (Unlike 5.0) Quickpull, StopTilt, Beyond 160, Storm Slider, BofA, File Manager Pro, Forward w/Edit, PDF to Go, Premium Doc to Go, Quicklaunch, Visual Voice Mail, Forward w/Edit, Shazam, Kenny Powers, BBOS Launcher, Memory Manager and Battery Booster
--Camera Speed faster and works every-time (I took 23 photos no issues)
--I am on BES with my company and it works flawlessly
--I can do a back up with DM 5.0 and no issues
--Video works with no hang ups. I did 3 videos today
--Music worked flawlessly with no problems
--The speed of the phone is very impressive
--Pictures and Music load faster in Media from my 16GB card
--Typing with ZERO lag
--Radio is holding at 4-5 bars of 1EXEV (3G). Normally at 2-3 bars in my office) Any improvement is great!
--Accelerometer is very quick. Even with themes!
--Visual Voice Mail works perfect
--53MB at start up vs 52MB before
--Battery Pull seems to load faster than before
--Memory starts at 53MB and 24 hours later I am at 46MB. I can live with that
--QuickPull 3.1.1 works perfectly (Unlike 5.0)
(I have done 3-60 second pulls as recommended by the BBOS team)
I am VERY HAPPY with this Hybrid V8!!
Best OS hands down for my Storm

Camera Problems in v8
Since v8 8 out of 10 times i open camera it says "could not start the camera. close other application and try opening the camera again"? anyone getting this. this has never happened

I have heard of this happening before. I would recommend backing everything up (phone and 3rd party apps), uninstall all OS from PC, double check shared and get rid of remains of hybrid. Empty recycle bin, restart PC....then start fresh: Wipe phone, install OS to PC, run hybrid, then load to phone. Once done, perform a security wipe (either BBSAK factory reset or options/security options/general settings/bb key/wipe handheld), then restore everything and do the 3 60-second battery pulls. Keep us posted.

Hats off to BBCRACKMAN V8 works great. I have had my storm since day 1 in NOV no issues other than OS related If it was not for leaks and BBC hybrids I would have went back to my 8830. Browser is very fast, Strong radio signal and all apps work. I was unable to shrink the OS am not sure why it was 66mb before and 66mb after. What does shrinking do?

Shrinking just removes a lot of the things that you do not need and generally can drop you from 66mb before to around 38mbs after
