    blargh

    So Vodafone officially released the .545 but their portal on blackberry.com is getting hit HARD right now, I'm tempted to try and d/l the leak, but am wondering what if any differences from the official release and the leak are, I mean, they would be identical right, otherwise it would be a different version number...

    What you guys think?

    Official d/l btw: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...05D7C424EBAE5F

    There is NO difference in .545 official or .545 leaked....545 is the same, no matter how it gets released.

    Loaded and has been running for like hours now. Seems faster with all my apps loaded back to .545. Good one. By far, the best release.

Just as I was chomping at the bit about the 5.0.0.536 release, considering it had been two friggin' months since the last leak or official for a 9700 anywhere. I proceeded to load the os onto my att branded 9700s (which I have two of) because I dont trust most oses w my tmo 9700 considering the extra 1700mhz band which causes radio issues with alternate oses originating from other sources.

    Regardless, my experiance with the 5.0.0.536 os was both good and bad. I liked the radio speed of the browser and stuff, however noticed that when making calls and switching from speaker to earpiece or bluetooth, or vice versa; I experience a delay in the GUI displaying (displaing ha) specifically the opposite of what i have active. This is quite contrary than the experience I have had on berries in the last 5yrs i been using them.

    I like the speed but this issue appeared in both .536 and .545 however .545 seemed to run better wo that issue every call but it hasnt been resolved.

    That is unless both of my 9700s have a simillar hardware issue (which I am hard pressed to believe considering the fact that I replace my phone as soon as I get a scratch).

    So that is my summary of these two oses. If you dont often switch between earpiece and speaker in the same call, enjoy it. You will definitely like the os, all my 30 apps work, but that issue is unbearable for me (but everyone is different in usage and technique).
    I make business calls all day and also found the speaker button and volume button issue on .536 & .545 and didn't know if it was on speaker or headset until someone started talking. It kind of had a mind of its own. I quickly went back to .442 as I could not deal with that issue.

    I don't really use the bluetooth or earpiece..so it doesn't affect me that much. I gotta test it too...will do it tonight.

    After upgrade, has been running since my posts yesterday here till this morning..Battery went off one bar and still as fast..consider it is a very good release. all my 3rd party apps are running fine.

    I love this OS. It's one of the best builds RIM has ever released.
