Default Bold OS 190 out there for picking in the wild.

I suppose I should start this thread with "Who has it!?" ...

I started out with quite a bit more free memory, as well. After a reboot I started with 47mb free. That's new and nice.

Media section seems fresher and "shinier". Not sure how else to describe it.


The IM folder came back as did "wireless upgrade". 3G stays locked much tighter on a local roaming network whereas before I was getting the occasional red SOS in the signal strength area.

3G much stronger
Browser and Wifi roars compared to the US version .167 and still a noticable improvement over .168

So far no glitches when viewing or browsing media

One thing seems to be with mine is browsing chewing through battery life but i havn't really given it long enough to compare yet

**two threads merged**

using it here and no real differences. I have been told .190 made the 3G seem stronger by another user, snappier, shinier and YES, whiter teeth!

for u to get batt life back to normal.....after u install the os, u should pull the batt out for 5 minutes and put back....

with 167, my batt seemed shorter than 162 and i did the pull and now it is very normal....

i have not tried 190 but try what i suggested...

Does it fix the BBM weblink issue?
ie: can you click a url sent to you via BBM?

Mark, no that is not fixed, BBM hotlinks.

Sith, that separated in .168, the last I used before this release.

Is it worth it to upgrade from .167 that came with ATT BOLD?

If you are having issues with anything, yes. For instance some users have reported 3G was hard to hold onto with .167

I love this one. I hated .168 . Battery seems to drain a little faster, web browsing seems faster. But memory link and hotlinks in bbm are still a proble. Over all the best OS thus far. I love it

I've been running it for a few hours and it seems to be a bit quicker than .168. Only problem I've noticed so far is that Windows Live Search doesn't want to work.
