did u dl and install os 6 for the 9700??
I'm also having memory leaks.
I've noticed that opera mini and facebook's newest version scrolls very sporadically. Also Facebook app works good except there are a couple facebook messages I can't delete out of my messages list. Kinda strange and not sure if this is a 6.0 problem or facebook app problem. Most facebook notifications delete just fine.
I can't delete videos created by the video camera, but videos uploaded from my computer to my SD card I can delete from my phone.
My battery seems to drop suddenly from 1/2 or 1/4 on my meter to red with flashing led. I do a battery pull and the battery level jumps back up to 1/4 or 1/2 whichever it was at the time. I noticed I was on WIFI this last time when it happened. The first time it happened I was using the camera and I believe I was messing with GPS geo tagging feature in the Camera options.
I'll report more issues as they arise.
the update is working perfectly on my phone. just follow the video guides.
only issue so far is that the battery usage seems worse than with the v5 software. i am hoping a new version comes out shortly to fix the issues in this thread. a hybrid would be nice.
so far i like v6 better than v5 of the OS
i like OS 6 as well. it does have it's share of bugs, and probably in the long run i'd have to go back, but i'm confident there will be another link or a good hybrid. the sms thing gets bigger as time goes on. today my daughter sent me a text but i couldn't respond. it would just hang (its the wifi/sms bug). so you have to pwer off and on to send it.
I'm having issues with my camera/video light. If I do a reset the light works the first time or two, but when I close the camera or video recorder and open it back up, the flash/light doesn't work any longer. I have to reset the phone before it starts working again.
Is anyone else having this issue?
I love the new OS but hope these bugs get worked out.
I'm a 9700 owner from Italy, WIND is my mobile phone services provider.
I was curious to try the OS 6 and last Friday i had on my hand a 9800. The form factor is not my best, but the OS attracted my eyes. I'm boried to wait for an official update the i installed this leaked...
1st attempt: backup, apps backup, wipe, installation, registration...good. The full restore with dm puts my new 9700 OS6 powered in an infinite hourglass loop...great to see, impossible to use.
2nd attempt: wipe, installation...good, registration...not good. I troubled a bit with BIS registration. I choose a partial restore: sms, mails, contacts, messengers...infinite hourglass loop again and after 1h "memory exception caught blah blah blah".
3rd attempt: wipe, installation...good, registration...not good. I troubled a bit with BIS registration again but i catched the trick.
Partial restore choosed again: sms and contacts only.
It's working fine since yesterday.

Reason: Partial restore list modified.
I haven't had this issue and i use it quite often as part of Quicklaunch

The only major problem I have is the memory leak, after about a week its dropped from 75mb free to around 26... It will stay there at that. Youtube video etc works fine, unless the file is too large?
A note: I dont use alot of apps so cant comment on any problems there. I dont get any errors, it hasnt crashed once. I use the browser, sms, emails (several accounts) PIN etc and everything runs fast and smooth (emails will sometimes lag for less then a sec when opening).
?? black n white ??
i've deleted tmobile themes, vendor xml, 3-4 battery pulls and it still comes out black n white. i can't even do anything on it. when it reboots, it freezes after i put in my pin. so confused. what else do i need to do.. or did i just dL a bad file?
totally had same probs as you. what did u do to get it to finally worK?
I went through the upgrade without a hitch (though the BBSAK application was newer than the screenshots; had some conflicts).
I'm with Rogers, this seems to be much more sleek and better looking, though I have some noticed the change in shortcut keys (when in the browser, you used to be able to push b for bottom and t for top, i for zoom in, o for out - and in V6 you can't, which kinda sucks)
Also in the browser, on the Facebook mobile site it thinks I am using a Torch (9800) and suggests for me to download the latest Facebook app for the Torch.
In Texas Hold Em' King 2, I lost my $15 million and am back to $500
That is all of the flaws I can find for now within my 30 minutes of testing - definitely would recommend this to someone if they don't mind the stuff I have mentioned above.
Downloaded os6 after that my charing pad not supporting it won't be able to charge on charging pad can charge with wire how come ?
Update: I am a lot happier with version 6 after having spent more time digging through it. The previous zooming shortcut (i / o) has been replaced, holding the alt key it will allow you to zoom in and out by using the touch pad - this is very cool.

I ran into a couple bugs inadvertently, when searching up a contact I hit the back button which made the phone freak out and it gave me an 'App Error' causing it to reboot. It happened a couple of times so far.
The biggest plus for me was the change in Wi-Fi connectivity, instead of it showing the usual 3G status it now shows UMA - according to the Rogers Red Board, this means I am now able to take advantage of the free Wi-Fi calling (my current plan supports it).
Thanks Hodges and BlackBerryOS.com!
