I like this version. I haven't installed any of the other betas cause I was holding out for an official release, but it just took too long for my limited patience. It's a bit slower and laggy compared to 5.0 but not in a way that makes me hate it. And haven't found any glitches that make it unusable or anything. A couple questions though:
- Is it possible to change the All, Favourites, Downloads sections on the main screen? I have no use for Downloads or Frequent, and wouldn't mind having a Messages container instead.
- is it possible to make the Berry button Open Tray by default, instead of popping up the menu to select Open Tray from there?

i think for all your questions it is unfortunately a no.

I have another issue in the calendar: in day view i can scroll left or right for the next/previous day. in the month view it works fine.

about 3 hours into this and .418 is working fine --- so far. My biggest gripe about upgrading BB OS is that you have to manually reset your layout, new folders, etc. but working fine. No noticeable battery drain or memory leaks.

Would be nice to get my week number display back like OS5. Am I missing something?

Edited: Seems like this is an OS6 thing in general? Why would a company doing business geared to the Enterprise remove this feature? Anyone dealing with European companies for sure deals in 'week number'.

It seems that RIM has indeed fixed the TMobile theme so that it's not necessary to remove it anymore.

Does anyone have the calendar scrolling prob as well? I'm about to go back to OS5 as this is a show stopper for me.

What calendar scrolling problem? I've heard of issues scrolling from day to day in the daily view but it hasn't been a show stopper for anyone.

Other then having to 'go to a specific day' by using the menu (when in Daily view) I haven't noticed any other scrolling problems in the calendar.

My biggest complaint in the calendar is not having the week number as an option in the display anymore.

RIM... ARE YOU LISTENING?

RIM doesn't officially listen here. This is unreleased software too.

Very funny (to me) thing happened after installing 418 and then restoring using DM: my brower home page was Google News. Now it's Google News Canada. Hey?

Still having issues with the browser shut downs (page too large, etc) and some third party apps (particularly Quick Launch and Viigo) but digging OS6 a lot.

Best.

Delete Viigo and install the new Blackberry News Feeds app. Its in the test area of Appworld. RIM bought Viigo and their news feeds app is the reincarnated product.

Someone else have the same issue?
I've having the same problem most of the time. The odd time it will work fine.
Imo the battery life seems worse in this release.

I'm sticking with .344 because "if it ain't broken, don't fix it." My battery life is superb, and I'm reading conflicting reports of how this new OS affects it. The only issue with .344 for me is that I only have about 60 MB of free space, and after a day it I have about 50 MB and I'll need to do a battery pull before charging.

Battery is way better. Last for up to 2 1/2 days
Memory improved since .380
Memory leaks seem more contained
Very stable over past few days
Scrolling across calendar days still a pain

Make sure you create a backup before you perform the below!


Instructions For Installation:


1) Install the *.exe file you just downloaded.

2) Navigate to Computer >>> C: >>> Program Files >>> Common Files >>> Research in Motion >>> Apploader

3) Delete the file named vendor.xml

4) Connect your BlackBerry through the USB port

5) Run loader.exe

6) Follow the on-screen instructions and enjoy.
Currently I have an OS 5.0.0.714 on my T-Mobile. Do I need to delete some kind of cod files? Can you write down a step by step instruction completely? Because the last time I attempted to upgrade it to OS 6 and it screwed (all theme icons came in black and white). Had to downgrade to OS 5.0.
