| | Odd changes after software upgrade 126.96.36.199 :(

I got my storm (9530) with Verizon on the launch date. As with many it had memory leaks and slow everything. I upgraded to the 188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206) and I noticed a few things that I have a few questions on:
1) When I power off the phone, I have to at work due to "0" reception in the warehouse, I am asked to auto switch to GSM based on coverage area. This NEVER happened before the software upgrade. I have tried picking "Yes" and "No" to make it stop asking. Its quite annoying but I can deal with it if no one knows how to get rid of it. Im not going to use GSM at any point and even if I did I can just switch it in the Network Options.
2) The signal indicator changes a lot now. I never noticed it before but it shows the standard 1XEV or just 1X but from time to time the 1XEV changes to 1Xev. Yes "lowercase", I do not know what this is or even if it matters at all. Just seemed kind of odd.
If anyone knows what or why these things are happening, please reach out and let me know what you've done to fix or deal with it.
O and please do not just respond with "Why not upgrade to the newest software" I am willing to just wait for the official software release. I can deal with these short comings, for now.
