    The only one I've definitely noticed as NOT working is Quickpull, and according to an email from them, 5.0.0.230 won't be supported until it's an official release.

    If it helps, here's a list of what I am running with no problems on 5.0.0.230:

    sensobi
    poynt
    twitvid
    SI (shortcut)
    ESPN (shortcut)
    Score Mobile
    Tweet Genius
    Opera Mini 5.0 Beta (required a soft reset after installing, but other than that, no probs)
    Gmail
    Google Maps
    Forward Reply and Edit
    Yahoo Fantasy Football
    Amazon
    Interlecta
    BBM 5.0

    Hope that helps,

    Marty

    Sprint Nav and Google Maps won't recognize the GPS. A generic TeleNav GPS and BB Maps will.

    Google Maps works fine on my Tour running .230. I will admit it takes a moment or two to lock in, but it gets the job done.

    I run Hybrid .238 and all my 3rd party apps work fine with the exception of QuickPull (can't get automatic schedule to work-but manually does work). Even Sprint TeleNav works, Google Maps, BB Maps, FileScout, Poynt, BBM 5.0.33 all work great.

    Ditto here. Actually, Google Maps locks in faster on my Tour with .230 than with (4.7.)140.

    Everyone who says that GPS works, they are on Verizon, so Sprint customers have to wait for the next 5.0 leak to fix the GPS. Just like they released an update for 4.7, now Google Maps work.
