    Interesting observation that was found on .323

    So I checked and it is true....

    Civic mentioned that her branding version has changed! I checked mine and sure enough it's different too! There is also a letter at the end!?!?!?

    Mine is now: 1.0.105.213A

    Civic attributes this to a possibility of a low-level flash for hardware, to may be bring up all storms to behave same???? What do you all think? I think RIM is up to something...not quite sure what! So far the changes have been better and better!

    These are both of my About screens:

    5.0.0.230


    5.0.0.323

    Don't think it's a "firmware" update per se as I loaded it and then returned to my old OS (BBCM hybrid 8.5) and my branding is where it has always been. I don't believe this would be the case if it had been an actual firmware update.

    This has been discussed before. The branding number is different for every phone I believe.

    I think the observation being made is that the branding number actually changed for a given device when they installed the latest 5.0 leak and that perhaps a "firmware" (ie...code written into the hardware of the device, for example a change in the code recorded in an EPROM) was being updated. Don't think that is the case as it would be unlikely for it to revert back when downgrading to a different OS.
    Perhaps RIM is renumbering or expanding their branding system.
