Since Bell Mobility does not have VMM, it's release won't have VMM. And so when a VMM-enabled carrier releases an OS, the first thing I do is get rid of the VMM files. As for the browser, that seems to be somewhat carrier specific too. I have never had to do a browser fix, whether I wiped and reinstalled or did an upgrade from a 4.6 or a 5.0. Seems to be more AT&T specific, but that might just be because of more AT&T posters.
The camera bug, is a different matter. There is also an SMS bug in .411 but I have only seen it once (after the upgrade but before getting any new SMS's), but I deleted all my SMS's and haven't seen it since on new SMS's.
As carrier's approve and release these new OS's, they are tested against their network, not yours and mine (well, unless we happen to be on that network, of course). It could very well be "the best OS evah!", but not so hot for you and I. As users of leaks and OS's from other carriers, we are using OS's that may not be optimized for use on our networks.
Remember the unreleased 220.127.116.118 and how it wouldn't work on any AT&T Bold (reboot loop)? It worked perfectly for me, no reboots -- everything functioned perfectly -- for me, it was the best of all the 5.0 OS's (I'll probably go back to that one when I have time).
