i come from cb and i love how everyone is cool and no talking s.it for asking a question. i installed 3.5 but the memory on my phone was dying fast. now i'm on 3.5.1 on a vz phone and lets see how this goes.
thanks for the hard work of getting an os better than RIM.

I saw the first post regarding the 3.5.1 release and having recently "converted" to hybrid nirvana, I'd planned to upgrade from my current hybrid (pretty sure it's v3) to the latest/greatest. After reading every post in this thread, I'm a little nervous and wanted to post a quick question.
On the Storm in About, it says: v126.96.36.199 (Platform 188.8.131.52). I'm on Verizon. I'm very happy w. the hybrid performance however I'd love to have larger keys in portrait mode.
So my question is: I understand that 3.5.1 was released for EDGE users...so is it worth it (from a performance/keyboard standpoint) to run 3.5.1 on Verizon? I'm not sure how the radio is related to key-size but saw a mention of that in an earlier post.
I don't want to go overboard on super-charging my Storm b/c I'm extremely happy/grateful for the current hybrid (other than the size of the keys in portrait), and would appreciate any feedback from Verizon users (or mods) that can help me decide if I should go for the upgrade or not.

just subscribed to this forum....hello to everyone
i'd rather post at this forum than at the crackberry warzone....he he
i'd like to say thanks to bbcrackman for this hybrid, i have a 9530 and use it with tmob...
i got sick of waiting for an official RIM .exe OS i've been running .76 since i got the phone....
skimmed over this thread and decided to give this OS hybrid a shot....not bad, runs nice.
i removed .76 from my PC and installed .114 since bbc used this OS for demonstration in the first few posts....then i installed the 3.5.1 hybrid. i has not loaded .114 to the phone, so after the 3.5.1 install on my PC, i upgraded the device with .76 loaded on it.
only odd things i've noticed is the radio plays around for the first min or so upon reboot, but after that it goes to EDGE and stays there....
can anyone give some details on what exactly this OS consists of ? i figure it's a mixture of components from various OS's, but what's the breakdown like ? after install phone says platform is 184.108.40.206, app is 220.127.116.11

Good morning zero7404 welcome to BlackBerryOS! I wont go into the details, however device is showing correct. The .114 platform comes from the .90 radio.

I am on verizon, I tried 3.5 and then, just out of curiosity I tried 3.5.1. My findings were as follows: Memory on 3.5.1 very stable, Keys are larger, however i think because the keys in suretype and landscape are larger, that means that there is no QWERTY keyboard in portrait, so if that's what you are looking for, doesn't exist. I woke up to a VSOD this morning after my phone rebooted via a quickpull scheduled reboot. The signal, in my area was weak and I had 1X a lot. My camera for some reason also did not work on 3.5.1. So... I am back to 3.5 which was excellent for me got better the longer it was on my phone. So although the bigger keys were ok and the color(which I also do not care about) was ok, my experience with 3.5 on verizon is much better than my experimental experience with 3.5.1.
