    Talking Best 9700 OS to date!!

    I've been running this OS since last night and man its SOLID so far. It boots the fastest of any of the 9700 OS's I've installed! AND it fixes the theme wallpaper bug!!! no more setting a custom wallpaper and having the applications screen background be all white and having to reset the theme default wallpaper and then set a custom as a workaround! Only to have the white appz background reappear after any reboot... The custom wallpaper works on the homescreen AND the applications screen! FINALLY! lol. So lets highlight the fixes etc:



    • Fixes Custom wallpaper bug with the new theme options!
    • Fastest boot time to date for 9700 OS!
    • ScoreMobile works with this build!
    • Comes with BBM 5.0.0.53!
    • AppWorld seems to work the best it ever has on any device/OS!



    I'll add to this as I have more findings etc. As of right now my advice to all you 9700 owners is to get this OS on your device yesterday!

    my favourite OS to date. solid, installed with no issues. fast reboot. cant comment on battery consumption, i have been using my blackberry a LOT over the last 2 days so i have had it plugged in a fair bit to keep the battery topped up (cant risk running out as my wife is about to give birth), this OS is stellar !

    This release is very stable and works the best of all of the 9700 releases. Lightning fast when it comes to thumbnail viewing & music scanning.

    There is a problem in the IP stack that is preventing my SameTime client from connecting to our server so I had to go back to .405 where it last worked. too bad I like this release!

    Not sure if there is a network issue tonight or what. This OS seems pretty good. But I can't seem to connect to the BlackBerry network over WiFI. The WiFi is working. I can get out over BIS and direct TCPIP. But the WiFi icon does not go white. I can get to the network over AT&T 3G. But if I turn off the mobile network, I can only get to BIS & direct TCPIP connections. Network status shows I am not connected to BlackBerry.

    Gonna give it overnight and see what it's like in the morning. I was working fine around 4 when I started the upgrade from .415.

    Chad, are you using Sametime 8.0.2? Or the Sametime Enterprise Instant Messenger 2.5? I can get to my corporate network using the Enterprise version of Sametime.

    i have had this issue with every os i've tried with my 9700. not sure why it is. every one i speak with says its my router but i've never had this issue with any other blackberrys so i doubt that its my router. its not the 9700 because i'm on my 3rd one so i assume at this point its a software thing that i hope will be worked out.

    I have no problems hitting the BIS over WiFi with the Mobile Network off, I agree with sherb's findings it is possibly your router config.

    Ok I lied apparently, the new theme options in .421 still have the custom wallpaper bug...it didn't break and give the blank white background on the applications screen for my first reboot but it just did it today so now the only background that has my custom wall paper is the homescreen. The rest are now the default of the theme.
