    Don't think so - I haven't heard of anyone even trying that though.

    If you want slacker and Pandora to work just install v8.5 over the recommended OS but swap the radio with .132 following the instructions posted earlier in this thread. You have to switch a couple files in order for the radio swap to work but you'll have what you're looking for.

    I would need BBC to confirm this but i dont think the 8.5 is compatible with .167 and up.. I thought i remembered hearing about this

    It has been awhile but I don't remember any negatives? Maybe the pandora bug where it doesn't finish the song?

    The only problem I had with this was that the Direct TCP connection would only work for about 1.5 to 2 hours and then stop working until battery pull. The direct tcp connection is the fastest connection possible and is required for apps like Pandora or others that stream data.

    This can also create problems for apps like vlingo, which automatically detect the best connection when you open them, but when the direct tcp connection stops working after that 1.5-2 hr. mark, the app won't check for a different connection, such as BIS-B, and will stop working.

    Many other apps like ubertwitter will let you choose your connection. So you could use the Direct TCP connection until it stops working (getting the fastest refresh rate) and then manually switch to BIS-B so you can still get updates without having to pull the battery.

    Some people would just leave it on BIS-B all the time and be happy - that wasn't good enough for me so I used v8.5 with a .132 radio swapped in (the .151 radio is what causes the issue with Direct TCP connections). You have to swap a couple files out to make the radio swap work so read some of the previous posts in this thread for instructions.

    If you don't use pandora or any other apps that use the direct tcp connection you should be fine. I personally like to have the fastest available connection for all my apps.

    v8.5 is without a doubt the best OS (in my opinion) if you don't want to try 5.0. Hope this helps and doesn't confuse anyone!

    In regards to MMS, camera, and FB, they all worked fine for me even with the .151 radio. A few people have had issues with MMS not working on this though.

    This is an issue with 5.0.0.191 I believe.

As she took my laptop when I was inside teh aircraft, It was in its leather bag. My Laptop battery was already past its useful life & it was mostly working on AC power. However that 6 hrs flight at -40C did wonders to my laptop batttery. When I connected it at home & realised after a few days that battery is retaining its full charge. I trid to run my lappy wout AC power & was shocked to see that the 'dead' battery is now retaining charge for upto 3 hrs. So I tried to put my other NiMH & Li cells in my fridger in a polythene bag & realised that ost of them are again as good as new. SO now I wekly put my Storm cell to fridger overnight.

    U too can try at ur risk & see the result. Just note that when u take it out of fridge, let teh cell come to room temp befor u start charging it.

    I know this is off topic, but I finally tried this tip with my fried xbox controller battery and can confirm that this totally works. The controller wouldn't work at all unless it was plugged in. I put the battery in the freezer for a day or two then took it out and let it thaw for a day or so, then charged it. Now holds a charge like new!

    You could try this with the storm battery too.
