Default What is the Best & Stable firmware for 8310?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm still using the default (factory) firmware on my 8310, and I have never done the firmware upgrade before. So, can you guys recommend me a good firmware for me? Thanks!

ps: I have the AT&T brand.

Update to the latest one, I have this one on my 8320 for T-mobile and love it. Much more stable and reliable.

The thread for the update is at the top of the 8300 forum, just follow the directions to the T and it is a piece of cake.

If your device is working well and as you want it, there is no real reason to upgrade and risk turning it into a brick shoudl something go wrong.

I heard the latest firmware is nice except for the low volume. How bad is that volume issue? Some people even mentioned the volume has been cut down 50% from that of 4.2x.

Is it even possible to brick a Blackberry? I have never heard of a single case where a Blackberry has been bricked from a firmware upgrade. I had an upgrade go wrong once, and by 8310 would not boot. However, just by running apploader again, it cleared it out and fixed itself. There are also instructions for running some program called JL commander that can help correct problems.

So, is the latest firmware improves and adds more features over the old 4.2 firmware?

Absolutely. Docs to go, video camera, and HTML email. That's what I have noticed so far.
