Same network drop offs as the beta .18. Don't bother.

Wow, they sure messed up the address book. That view really sucks and I can't seem to get rid of it. Such a small screen hate to see so much wasted space. What were they thinking? I also think they wasted a lot of space with the emails and even the message view seems to show less at one time. This is not like RIM to put out such a crappy look.

PLEASE NOTE:

There are several major negatives to this package, which I still consider a beta.

1. GPS functionality will be lost on some GPS enabled applications.

2. Edge dropouts are frequent

3. Freezes

4. Reboots at random

5. Severe lag at times

Where were you yesterday before I got load happy and loaded this crap on my device? I'm not really digging this OS too much.

I actually use Vodacom here in South Africa. Typical of them to release a beta. Will rather wait for a "proper" offical launch.

There were about 10 warnings not to load this OS previously in this thread.

I found 4.5.0.42 yesterday and loaded it. The browser issues I was having are resolved, youtube video seems to be improved a little and it seems a bit quicker than the previous Beta OSes. Also Mapquest seems to acquire a GPS fix alot quicker with this version. All in all I'd say it kicks it, great OS so far.

As Always.....

Happy Berrying!

4.5.0.42 was out on May 04, 2008. I got it on May 6, 2008 and since then I'm using it.

I haven't see any problem with this OS. I think it's the perfect OS so far.

Just an FYI -

I jumped on the bandwagon here for the OS 4.5
I installed 4.5.0.42 (58) version last night on my AT&T branded Curve 8310
I haven't had any issues so far.

I have the following 3rd party apps installed and they work as designed...
BBAlerts v1.65
InfoSpace FindIt v1.4.0
Telenav GPS v5.1.1.30
JiveTalk v1.0.5
Viigo v2.2.82
Facebook v1.2.0
Empower HTML Viewer Pro v3.0.68.7
YWeather v0.4.1

I also was able to install the free games RIM puts out every once in a while...
Disco Bowling
Christmas Pool
Poker Blast
Soduku
Pub Checkers

I also installed PacMan without issue.

I have some quick link Icons installed....
CNBC
ESPN Launcher
ABCNews

So far so good.
Thought this might help some worried about jumping over to the newer OS.
I find it to be more stable and quicker than the currently supplied AT&T 4.2.2 OS.

I also moved up from DM 4.2 to DM 4.3 in Vista X64 without any issues.
