As I thought, there's nothing noticeable that's changed. Opera still freezes, no new themes either.
Looks like we're in to incremental changes for 4.2.1 from here on out.

Thumbs up

Is a deal breaker for me, no chinese input support, but thanks for the link, downloading it now for my OS collection.

Can somebody verify if the ring tone is louder the pervious version, how many themes, any error, copy and paste in web page, wav file in email attachment, also on home screen when you hold down ALT and type NMLL, do you have the minus sign next to the signal number, thanks alot.

the BB maps was installed on my 8700g with no problems, but I took it off. I like google maps better.

I agree...the previous versions of 4.2 have been laggy for me as well. Hopefully this one will be better.

Thanks for the link guys, good find!
