I'm looking to update but I'm new, confused and mildely worried
Hi I'm currently running v.184.108.40.206 from the official release and I'm sort of tired of it acting up. It's lagging glitchy and from what I've been reading this new leak works well (aside from the camera and BBM 5.0 which I guess I'm willing to sacrifice for a while until Lyric or BBC get a out hybrid).
I'm just worried that I'll mess my phone up if I do something wrong so can anybody give me like step by step instructions (with graphics would be nice).
With the current version I'm running my phone takes almost 10 minutes to boot up after a battery pull which is very frustrating when my friends all of a sudden think I'm ignoring there messages. :aargh4:
Last I checked my memory was like 8MB...it may have been 5MB...I don't recall. But I understand from earlier posts that that's like a danger zone. :bigeyes:
Losing 5.0 Messenger will suck but I can deal with 4.7 until an updated version is released/leaked (if that happens again).
I use Gmail and my verizon blackberry email and I've read that some people are having issues with getting those to work. :no: which isn't good. I also don't have my contacts back up anywhere else but on my phone which i know is stupid of me so is there something that I can use to back those up that is free? I don't really like to use the DM because it lags on my computer.
I would greatly appriciate the help of anybody
And I was just wondering about the camera, I know that on .148 you can access the video camera from the camera when you click the BB button and then select video camera, can you do the same just in reverse to get an operational camera or has anybody tried this?

When i got done loading, my clock was set to some random time, and then i got a popup saying "mountain time zone detected, update clock"? so im guessing that yes, it works. as far as weatherbug i cant help you there. i just use the temperature thing built into quicklaunch 2.0

neither of the cameras work. so no. as far as visual voice mail, you can re download it from a ota link, i dont have it but i have seen it in this thread.

step 1 download and install 220.127.116.11
step 2 search your c: drive for vendor.xml and delete it.
step 3 in the same folder vendor.xml is in, is a file called loader.exe (search for it if needed)
step 4 plug in your storm
step 5 run loader.exe and follow the wizard.
gl to you, sorry i dont have graphics but it really truly is quite easy to do. let me know if you have any questions

I tried swapping the 191 .cod with 154.......no luck! Didn't want to try 140 as there was already an issue with it's clock.

Thanks for trying. It was worth a shot.

I load the backup fist thing after the new OS is put on. When I open desktop manager and it starts to sync I cancel it. When it checks for software updates I cancel it. Then I go and restore my backup then I put my 3rd party apps back on and then I sync the contacts and calendar...

This is the best OS bay far! My phone has been on for the last 24 hours with no resets or battery pulls and it's actually had an increase in app memory. It booted up with 42MB and it now has 43MB. It's quick! It has threaded SMS! It has flick scrolling! This is really the way the phone should have been! The only drawback is the camera but I can suffer through it!
