    Is OS5 for the Storm1 Ready for Prime time? What are the advantages?

    I have not made the jump from os4 to os5 on my Storm1. I had enough issues getting stable on os4.7.0.148. I am also constantly seeing where apps are still being upgraded to support os5. I hate the thought of having to reinstall and re-customize my apps. Does Swiss Army knife allow you to restore apps from os4 to os5? I don't really remember seeing what the advantages of os5 are. Am I missing out on good stuff or should I be content with what I have for now?

    Well I am quite new to my storm, yet, just started with os4 to very fast upgrade to os5. So far I haven't had too many different applications installed, but e.g skobbler, viigo, docs to go, weather apps, twitter apps, some dictionaries, some ebook readers and some fun apps all went very smoothly from 4 to 5.

    Why OS5 - well, to me it feels much faster, more responsive, with less memory issues, better power handling, much smoother handling of the screen - it was a kind of (OS4) "ok, nice" to (OS5) "wow, that's cool". Just my penny

    T has your best answer. Everyone is goign to have an opinion. Another thing you can do is check the developer of an app you arent sure works and find out. You can also just fire away here adn typically someone knows the answer to all your questions. Let us know what we can do to help
