Just installed it :) storms excited but me , i dunno it seems to be stuck in loading, bout a half an inch of the bar left to go... wtf?
Not sure if this was already discovered. But fix for landscape mode on custom themes.
1. Change Wallpaper
2. App Screen > BB button
3. Options > Change layout to today > exit
4. BB button > Options > Change layout back to 2 row > exit
5. rotate to landscape mode and viola it works.
If you like your custom theme wallpaper just ask the theme developer to upload the wallpaper for that theme and use the same steps above. Obviously change the wallpaper to the wallpaper provided to you by developer.
This is certainly a hot topic and annoying problem. I have found one other remedy for those with Quicklaunch. Using the Lock Tilt option works on the main menu screen. If you go to the main menu and BB button then choose QL Lock Tilt you won't see the white bars anymore. Of course you would have to first enable the feature from the options menu in Q/L itself.
Just wanted to throw this into the mix and if you don't have Quicklaunch I would consider it, they just updated it again with some new features, it's a really great app
This release seems very smooth to me, no issues so far to report.
I did notice something interesting that I didn't see in the 230 release. I am not sure if any of you have this release running on a BES (4.1) like I am. When I re-initialized it to my BES today i noticed an extra mail icon on the main screen. This icon in only dedicated to my exchange email and things to go with it, all other messages are not present. I thought this is neat. It also shows my Desktop name below it to let me know that it is exchange emails.

Typing seems to have improved, it feels like the old 4.7 builds when punching keys instead of hit and miss while being on the early 5.0's. I love the response and stability though.
I also ran across an issue when i loaded the OS and my back up files, it claimed i had BBM 5.0 installed, yet i was not able to find it anywhere on the phone, so i had to uninstall it and load it from the BB browser and go to the blackberry website. no biggie though.
Anyone having problems connecting to Viigo, Slacker and/or installing VZWSongID? I read that some are having problems with Viigo, so maybe it's not just me, but Slacker isn't loading any stations, i signed in but it doesn't have any stations, i search for songs but it won't play. VZWSongID, I try to download it but 1/2 through the download it keeps saying Download failed.
You pay too much attention :laugh2: no landscape but no white bars either, you just can't have both for now. I'm not sure why anyone would want the main menu in landscape anyway especially with this OS with the quick accelerometer the lock tilt seems to be a must to me, but then again I'm not normal :D
