    It has been like this since I updated it though. I might downgrade and see what happens

    I was running .75. I then installed .114 onto my computer and ran 3.5 exe over it. I installed the OS to the phone using the apploader but only after deleting the vendor.xml file. Basically exactly how the directions in the initial OS post said to do it. So far I am floored! I am amazed at what I have been missing. My ONLY gripe is the color banding issue, but I would rather have the stability. Since this was my first OS install since I got my BB, I made sure I read EVERY thread I could on what to expect. I am glad I did as I haven't had any random reboots, e-mail issues, radio reception problems at all. In fact, my reception has gotten better. I have 3-4 bars where before I had 1-2.

    The only thing I am trying now is the battery drain procedure just to se if it improves anything.

    After the install, I didn't have my phone book, themes, settings, etc. I then remembered that I was instructed to do a backup before doing the OS install. Yep...I did it and then restored off the backup. All went great and I got that stuff back! Thanks for making that tip a big one.

    What I have noticed was the memory changes between .75 and the 3.5 hybrid. Once my memory started to drop on .75 it just continued to drop. Not the case here. It will drop then go up then kinda settle. The camera is freakin sweet now (should've been like this when I got it IMO)!

    My only advice (newbie grain of salt) is that I remember eading here somewhere that you should disconnect your internet connection before installing the OS. I don't know if that would solve some of the issues I've been reading or not, but I did my install this way and so far so good.

    So far I've done my initial batery pull, and a second pull just for S&G. From what I've been reading, on VZW 3.5 is the way to go. My thanks to BBcrackman for this hybrid, and Neolantis for words of encouragement (see signature). This site is GREAT!
    Great findings report...

    You only need to turn off the internet if your DM is on automatically check updates. If you use the loaderapp in the folder it will never interfere with that. (that's how i do it anyhow).

    ...and your welcome, glad we could all help you.

    HAHA...that's what I meant to say. I did use the loaderapp. Again, newbie so my terms are still a bit off.

    So I am not the only one. :bandit: I had the same problem. I even took my phone back to the VZW store. All they did was replace the battery. Did not change a thing. I can only say that what did the trick was a long overnite charge after it went completely dead. It really fixed itself. :dunno:
    I am currently running .122/v3.5H. I don't think that the Hybrid has anything to do with it but rest asured that it can get better. I can now do my full 8 hour shift and only lose one bar.
    Also, set your phone to shut down and re-start overnite. Even if it is just for 30 minutes. It works wonders. :banana:

    Upgraded Friday night and did the usual 2 battery pulls. Been smooth sailing since. Have had no problems, no reboots and no freezing. Feels very smooth in just about all areas. Very pleased.

    Thanks, BBCrackman!

    For Verizon with 3.5 you have the right radio code if your version shows .122 with platform .153. With 3.5.1 it will show platform .114. That's for T-Mobile users and has shown itself to be unstable for other carriers.
