I'd have to disagree, I'm running 5.0 on my 8330 and have for several weeks now. It doesn't bog down at all, it speeds it up a great deal.
The Boost Mobile release has a fairly large memory leak which may require daily or everyother day battery pulls to restore memory but the NathanX hybrids seem to have eliminated that while speeding up the phone even more.
I dropped back to OS 4 for awhile today and was surprised at just how much slower the things were and how much is missing that I've learned to rely on in OS 5.
I wouldn't be surprised if VZW never released it as they have apparently sold out of 8330s and probably won't get any more but the software is still being developed and more releases will follow the Boost release.
