So, I loaded this hybrid right over OOAK's 7.99 w/ 151 radio. I did not wipe first. I am bad boy. I did not load any 3rd party apps during the download. I booted up with 54.3mb, but I did not have Docs to Go initially. I loaded all of my apps manually. He is what I have found:
I did not get an error from initial load.
Camera/Video Camera are quick. No lag on start or to delete.
Typing is great. But I have always like .140's typing speed.
Pandora radio works fine, so far. I have not run it for a long time.
BBM 5.0 loaded fine and my contacts resurfaced quickly.
The boot up time with no apps was like 2 min. It increased to 3.5 min after apps.
However when I ran a straight .140 sometimes it would be longer.
Scrolling through messages is slightly faster than w/ straight .140.
Themes still do not work, but we would expect that.
I am running Blak Theme w/ BB Alerts.
No problem with 3rd party apps so far and not random reboots.
After install of 3rd party apps and Doc2go I am at 46.7mb memory and battery life seams to be stable.
Still no facebook, but that is no biggy.
I am anxious to see what other feedback is out there.
I didn't get the error message. I had around 42 MB of memory after install.
After installing apps and BBM, everything seems to work fine so far and I booted up with 44.5 MB.
I have gotten some hour glasses here and there.
Browser seems to be super fast and sliding through menus/apps seems very smooth.

Still testing things out.
Booted with roughly 39MB first few times. Still too early to give feedback.
The java folder was already shrunk in case you all didn't notice. Hopefully you all replaced the java folder and did not overwrite it.
So far seems ok. Not real sure what we are looking to gain over stock .140 besides some visual things maybe. Of course, I didn't give .154 much of a chance because it sucked!
Are you guys gonna try any of the other devices 5.0 .cod files into this one?
Wirelessly posted (storm 9530)
Loaded at 52MB
NO error message
Third party apps work not sure about bb app world
Themes leave notification message on like before .
Browser is fast.
No problems with notifications with Sen theme.
Great build thus far. Will report more later and at a computer.

Reason I ask is with regular 140 I was getting the email icon after I deleted the message, but I figured out it was on messages that I had read on my pc so I just deleted the message on my storm without opening it, if I open the message and delete from there I have yet to have an icon remain with my theme, with this hybrid or straight up 140. Just curious.

Another ? fellow testers, when you mention not getting the error at boot up that OOAK mentioned is this different from a screen immediately wanting to Reboot the phone or in 9 minutes it will automatically reboot? I had that screen earlier with this hybrid the same as with 140 when it first leaked.
Now for the first time ever, I did not have to go through the setup today, no fine print agreement page then signal page followed by the time setting and keyboard choices.
I got the reboot request, rebooted then came back up with my wallpaper, 1XEV, 2 email messages from BB and VZW, icons where I left them etc.
I think the reboot screen that you got is different from the error message that Randy and OOAK said we would receive when we first downloaded this hybrid.
