Default Re: Latest OS 9900 v7.1.0.1997 / 7.1.0.694 (Multilanguage)

Just installed this afternoon. Two observations:

This like the previous official os .569, did not have a second hidden vendor.xml file. For months now there has been a second vendor.xml file. Until earlier this year I never had a second vendor.xml file. Never knew the purpose of the second vendor.xml file. Don't know why it suddenly appeared and now seems to have dissappeared. Curious.

Radio seems less capable in pulling in weak signals. While I am in the middle of a large city, reception on 28th floor is weak. May reflect AT&T perception that most of its customers are in strong signal areas as compared to .569 where the Dominican Republic carrier may have fewer towers and opted for stronger radio. Perhaps a trade off by AT&T to improve battery life?
