Battery has been acceptable today, but still not as good as with the previous OS version...can't recall the number...500, 534...I've been through all of them.
Radio signal is strong and reliable in this 570 build. Again, all other apps work correctly so far.
** as a note, shortly after installing 570 and rebooting, a couple battery pulls, and an overnight break, I booted up this morning at 9:00 AM EST. Been on all day, using my Torch quite a bit too... WiFi, blackberry news feeds, browser, texts, emails, a few 5 minute phone calls, and a couple of YouTube videos...mostly perusing the phone settings and menus looking for any observable OS differences. Battery saver Pro still reports 49% battery remaining after 12 hours of use. Not too shabby I suppose after all.
I entered email setup application to resend service books and was given a message that there was an available upgrade to the email setup application? That's a new one for me. I downloaded and installed the update. No noticeable differences. It struck me as odd that the latest leaked build of the OS comes with an outdated component in the email setup app? 570 Build also has outdated Appworld and BBM...but quickly recognizes that fact and offers the updates to you.
Oh well, all seems well at this point and I will be keeping 570 until the next version...barring any unforeseeable revelations.
Hope this helps someone out there! It's my first venture into posting on any boards. I figured I have been given so much advice and help over the years via these forums that it might be time to give back.
Thanks for the up date. I have found that after upgrading to a new OS, after backing up the device using DM, two to three battery pulls in th first couple of hours really does go a long way in "seating in" the download.
If you notice something else, let us know.
So from now on, all my OS swaps will involve a clean wipe and install with a formatted Micro SD also in the process....and of course...4 or 5 battery pulls throughout and following the process. Those are about the best tips I know for the most successful OS upgrades possible.
Thanks for the ideas and suggestions to everyone out there who helps!
Battery runs out faster :(
A couple of builds back they fixed this and now it's back?
I too have 188.8.131.526 on my Torch and have downloaded this upgrade.. WIll try it once I have some free time to install it & then test it.
Till then I will be closely reading ur updates.
Thanks for the feedback..
Ok, I just did the complete format and clean install using BBSAK.
Hoping my battery now runs longer. I will post at the end of the day about the battery if the clean install helped.
