Well I should have waited one more day before breaking down and installing .119. I did it last night, and just now found .131. Hehehe!

I have not installed .131 yet, I went from .97 to .119. From what I rember the upgrade from .77 to .119 is worth it. I gained memory and speed on my device.

I have never had an issue with speaker blast. I find that to be a very odd problem. Too many ppl report the issue for it to not exist, but then there are ppl like me who have never once expirenced speaker blast. I've had my curve since July of '08 upgraded every time a new os came out without ever having that happen to me.

Odd very odd.

Did a wipe to get rid of .119 and did the install without any problems. Am only going to recover contacts/mail/tasks/memo/passwords/bb messenger databases - everything else will be clean install and am hoping this will fix a lot of the problems I encountered with .119 (which I kept because it ran so quickly)

Everything is great so far, no speakerphone blast. Something that is still not working though is viewing pdf files that come as attachments in an email, although this might be a setting somewhere? Always used to work.

Hmmm, trying to install this one is giving me a hung backup in DM 4.7 at the RMS database backup section. The PC just sits there. It does this several times when trying to backup the database.

Yup, I know about the vendor.xml file thing. I also did a search on how this was a problem on older models. I'm using DM 4.7, Vista, and a VZW 8330 so I'll have to explore this issue further .....


It didn't hang, just sat there for about 20 minutes. Looking good so far ........

Forgot to install the attachment service - installed and realised that it won't work on emails that had already arrived. Works now.

I think someone mentioned using the space button to turn the screen on and it didn't seem to confuse the phone as much.

As for pros to this build:
Been reported more stable
-quicker
-No speaker blast
-once again spotted talks about battery and memory performance being better

cons:
-Backlight delay
-auto light for video camera still not working

Default Unable to install 4.5.0.131

I have installed numerous beta versions of the OS on my Verizon 8330. I have been using .97 for quite a while.

However, .131 is the first version that has ever given me a problem. In fact, I can not even install this software, I get a "fatal error..." message and it leaves the existing .97 OS installed.

Any ideas?

Wirelessly posted

The only thing I can suggest is if your not a Sprint customer is to delete the Vendor XML file. I can't see who yoiur carrier is on the wap forum.

YES!! Speakerphone blast finally gone. I do notice the backlight delay, its maybe 200ms slower in coming up than it was before. Doesn't look like a bug, more like a design change - I'm not entirely sure it bothers me to tell the truth, just different than it was. It also lives up to the hype, very snappy performance overall, even compared to .97 and .119. I even think it's playing my videos better.

Upgrade, you won't be disappointed!

I haven't noticed any of those problems. This is by far the best OS I've used, and my Telus 8330 is actually quick in the menus.
