I have to say...so far so good. The text lags seem to have been mostly resolved. Can't report on battery life yet since this is day one following the aforementioned operation.

    I'll post again with more results...but all looks promising for now.
    Did you reload v570 or did you downgrade like you were thinking about? It sounds like you reloaded v570. If so, I am eagerly awaiting your views.
    Thanks

    I reloaded v570. Didn't want to give up on it so soon. So far things seem to be stable. There is still an occasional lag when entering text...but that could be an issue with just my phone. Not bad enough to abort version.

    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 It struck me as odd that the latest leaked build of the OS comes with an outdated component in the email setup app? 570 Build also has outdated Appworld and BBM...but quickly recognizes that fact and offers the updates to you.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.

    Yeah...part of my standard OS swap protocol after years of trying this stuff. However, I don't always do a device wipe before the procedures. I know opinions vary about that topic...but I think it's probably a good practice. Sometimes I'm just too lazy to do it! I have found that the Micro SD card can have some bearing on successful, bug free operations. They can have all kinds of remnants on them...from leftover programs, current programs, all kinds of stuff.

    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!

    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.
