Once again, google is your friend. Search and you will find...the files are, indeed, out there, but the process is, as noted, a bit hairier than is typical, so be sure to pursue this particular leak only if you are intrepid and know the risks -- and how to unbrick your phone is you mess up the install...

Here's hoping the next version shows up for the 8900 soon too!

If you want to complain about something go to the rants and raves forum. Other than that this is over. Please stop complaint about beta postings in numerous threads.

This os is very fast....but, I have run into a few issues

Pandora stops at the 27sec mark....and wont continue unless you hit pause, then hit play......AND...
Viigo wont scroll down......

Other than those little glitches, everything works great, its very stable (at least on my Tour), and like everyone else said....its very very fast.....

They replaced the 1XEV with a 3G logo.....
Has predictive text (I dont use it....but its there)
Has Threaded SMS........(not a huge fan of this.....)

Try Slacker, it works, and it's better anyway (it can cache entire stations on your memory card too!)

The Viigo scrolling problem only seems to be on items with large graphics for me. I'm going to turn off graphics and see what happens.

Im stuck using slacker for now......Personally I prefer Pandora....mainly as a few months ago, I paid for a subscription, so I use it as much as I can....plus I like the stations that I can create....

Based solely on this fact, as silly as it is, I MAY go back to the offical VZW OS.....

EDIT - BTW....no matter what system I use, slacker is nothing but a glitch when caching to the memory card.....that is 1 more reason I may go back....just stuck on Pandora...
