Default Storm Firmware Improvements?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi mates,

Those of you who had updates your Storm firmware upwards, have you noticed any improvement on;

1. Accelerometer (Does it turn portrait or landscape when you require it to) Or it has to be shaken to correct the position?

2. Support of Asian fonts?

3. Text Editing - Sensitivity Touch

4. Battery Life

5. Stability of OS (Without Re-boot)

Hope to hear you guys comments...

I am on OS .113 so I will give you my answers based on my own experience.

1. Yes, a great deal faster
2. Unknown about this, I do not mess with fonts
3. There is a sticky at top of this page that will help with this issue, on any given OS install
4. I get a day and a half out of mine (seems to vary a lot by the actual battery sometimes, not the OS)
5. Very stable, haven't had 1 single reboot since installing .113

Now I will say this last. Your mileage May Vary!

I have to agree with ElusiveAura... Since I upgraded to OS .113, things have been better. Been on OS .113 for a little while and the speed is much faster. My battery last a good day and half sometimes more. I've only had to do a battery pull one time. I'm pretty sure if I would have left it think for a minute or so it would have been fine. I just get impatient sometimes

All in all, I had OS .75 and .113 is much improved. Very satisfied with it
