    140 vs 191

    here are some of my comparisons of the two os's
    benefits of 191:
    sound notifications work on custom themes...big +
    threaded SMS...slightly better than sms viewer from empower
    flickscroll is very cool...lots better than berryscroll

    those are the big three gains i see from 140 to 191...now the cons:

    no BBM 5.0
    BBalerts do not work
    VYmail for youmail does not work
    can't access the menu in peekawho
    screen not dimming
    meterberry doesn't work
    camera doesn't work
    video camera doesn't work
    filescout doesn't work
    BBsmart alarms...you can't access tones from the media card
    got2pro doesn't work

    i guess i just talked myself into downgrading back to 140....thanks for listening....

    I am able to access my own tone. What I can't do is put in code to register it!:irked: BTW, great site; very informative and mature.

    Thanks Cat! I myself have yet to plunge into any of the 5.0 Os's...still happy with 4.7.0.151....

    Downloaded 191 this morning along with the rest of the Western Hemisphere, but will hold back for now....your breakdown made up my mind for me....

    Flickscrolling, threaded SMS, and the other new fonts and features sound cool, but I do not like the idea of having to do without so many apps (i.e. Meterberry) and especially not having access to the camera....

    Catside,

    I could not agree with you more. I would keep .191 if I could get BBM to work. I can not even figure out how to downgrade to 4.7 and I do not think that I am that ignorant.

    However, I was running V3 of Lyricidal and OOAK's hybrid for 5.0 and I had absolutely no problems. I am sure wuth this leak it will be just a matter of days before someone fixes some of the issues. But BBM 5.0 and Meterberry are some apps that I got used to seeing.

    It is great to have choices of 5.0 OSs!!!
