Default Is there a "perfect" 5.0 Beta?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any 5.0 OS build beta that...

-Plays nice with AT&T service?
-Doesn't reboot randomly?
-Doesn't require doing a "fix" to enable the native browser to work?
-Allows the use of 5.0 BBM?

I don't want some of those attibutes...I want them ALL!!!

P.S....I know it's a lot to ask, but unless I can get all of what I want...I'll just wait until some service provider does an "official" release.

If there was a "perfect" beta, it would be an official stable release.

I use .314 on my 9000 and it doesn't have any of the above mentioned issues.

i heard some people had reboots with .314...i don't know. Probably some AT&T folks.

The new one is decent .348. Though my sms delivery notices vanished.
U may wanna wait for .390 which is supposedly around the corner and i'm pretty sure based on my experience with the .348 beta (since no one wants to share .362), that either .390 or .4xx will be pushed to the service providers as a master.

.348 on Rogers re-boots frequently. I found the only way to stop this is to switch from 2g to 3g and then the battery life stinks. Seems very carrier dependant for each beta OS.

Since when were official releases stable?

T-Mobile 8900 5.0.0.348 works almost perfectly with all of my apps including Doc to go 2.0, BB 5.0 Messenger and so far, Facebook. The only program that I am having problems with is QuickPull Pro but the free QuickPull is working well. Waiting for a revisionof the Pro version.

It is VERY fast, clean and I have not had any reboots at all!

Anyone else out there having a successful experience with this version???

right here...just the issue with sms delivery notices. But aside from that, it's one of the best. I really liked .314 as well.

it really depends on your provider.
For me .348 works ok. Only about 1 reboot per week, battery life good, 3G works, BBM5 as well.
.314 was not usable, constant reboots.

I've been running .314 on my 8900 for about a month with no reboots except when I pull the battery myself once or twice a week. Maybe there was a problem with reboots for 9000 users. It seems very stable to me and works with all of my apps including Facebook. WiFi works well and battery life is decent. Only time I have a battery problem is when I am using Amazegps. With the gps running constantly and the program accessing map data online I have to use the car charger to avoid using up the charge.
I am sure that there are issues that I do not see but it is working very well for me.

I am trying to limit my number of OS upgrades so I won't antagonize my BES sysadmin too much...

348 is almost perfect for me, except for the fact that one of my apps don't work. But I can live with it.

horrible battery life on .314. ATT is my carrier. Battery only lasts 4 hrs.

For AT&T .238 is the best bet, although you do have to do the browser fix (not that that's a major issue, it's a 5 minute ordeal). It's by far the most stable 5.0 build for the Bold.
