    Does anyone want me to mirror it to Rapidshare or MU? BB website is so slow!

    Edit: I'm downloading it onto my server which is on a 100mbps line, and it's not even getting 200kb/s. Too many downloading from them at the moment!
    Edit2: Hey guys you can download it from Rapidshare. No wait time required! Try not to share the link on any other forum please, just for you guys. I think you can use a download manager with it too
    http://rapidshare.com/files/22033022...A4.7.0.122.exe

    If you'd like to confirm the files are the same just check the MD5 etc. Other than that, the file will only be up for about a week so you guys should mirror to Rapidshare and such. Also try not to spread this on other forums please, bandwidth is precious these days.

    Edit3: Updating now - Complete. Sending service books, will report back with my findings in the morning!
    Edit4: lol so many edits. Already I've noticed the phone is MUCH, MUCH faster, very good! - Sent service books, did a batt bull then restored the backup of all my contacts/emails etc - looks good as new. I'll play around with it till I fall asleep and see what else I notice, battery seems much better already

    musti009,

    what version did you run BEFORE you upgraded to .122?

    Did you run the 9500 .144 hybrid?

    ealvnv,

    do you notice a difference in respons when going from landscape to portrait compared to from portrait to landscape.

    My irritation with the current version .114 Hybrid (and with all previous official versions) is that the Storm switches to landscape too fast and my Storm is slower going back to portrait.

    And you're on Tmobile, NL? what's better with this radio-version?

    no difference is the same in both ways
    Tmobile is more stable....

    i already posted this.. but in another thread..
    i will repost my observation here too:
    ________________
    Just updated my old .78 to .122

    The difference is really noticeable.
    Phone reaction time is much better.
    Writing is more accurate and faster.
    It remembers my last KB view(i prefer multi-tab when i search my contacts)
    Better text selection.

    Not so happy with the memory... it went from 45 to 28 just in 2 hours.
    (after heavy emailing with attachments, mms-ing and some facebook).

    I will wait and see will the mem go up .. or i will have to reset/bat.pull

    For now .122 is a must have if you are running the old .78 !

    Upgrade from .113 to .122

    Looks like memory leak is worse, but at the same time the memory is "back" faster...hmmm.... strange. i use meterBerry to measure.

    web browser faster
    keypad more accurate

    overall: satisfied.
