    I seriously hope the battery life doesn't suck as much as it did on .428-for me anyways, and this reboot time is putting me to sleep.

    EDIT: A few more notes to add-I was wondering why I gained nearly 8-10 mbs of space, it turns out you can now remove ringtones and other stuff that was blocked before in the newer 5.0's-now that we can again; it seems I really actually wanted some of them still, Lol, anyone know a site where I can pick up some sound wavs that sound like some of them? Otherwise, this is a pretty solid OS so far, I still have to wait to see what my battery life ends up like though.

    for battery life mine has actually improved. do you have any apps like berryweather or twitter apps that may be refreshing very often? and the other thing to try is let the phone go dead, until it turns off then completely recharge it, sometimes that is all it needs.

    I"m not running anything different than I did on .428. During the same time period doing the same things with the same apps I would be around 50% on .428 and with this one I was at 20%.

    I would try running it dead and fully recharge it. Sometimes they need that. There is a 'switch' in the battery cells that sometimes needs 'reset'.

    Battery life has been great for me on .451. I read somewhere recently where Meterberry was causing battery issues after installing .451. An uninstall and reinstall of Meterberry fixed the issue.

    It seems to be a common thing for apps to become either corrupted or unstable through the upgrade process. Maybe this could be your issue? I would suggest trying process of elimination with your third party apps and see if one of them is the culprit..

    After i did the update my bweather did not update either. I had to go into bweather settings and change the setting in general settings to update every 15 min. It was set to never after os update. Give that a try.

    I had the same configuration issue with Berryweather...also had to re-register it. In fact, now that I think about it, I had to do the same to meterberry and berrybuzz also.
