Could .402 be the new Gold Standard?
It pretty intersting that RIM released this leak for almost every current BB.
It seem with such a massive release across the board RIM may believe that
this is the OS we all should be using. Especially so soon after the .342!

Well, I have been using it since it leaked and battery life is better. Based on BlackBerry Device Analyzer, it has settled into a 2.8% per hour drain, which covers lots of e-mail, BBM, music, web access...
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are ALWAYS ON.
I'm impressed. It's definitely the gold standard for me.BlackBerry Passport (10.3.0.1418), Microsoft Surface 2 (Windows 8.1 RT)

I just installed .402 this morning - hopefully this will be the one....until the next leak."In God we trust....all others we investigate".

Definitely the best 7.1 OS for me, i had such a huge battery drain on .342 so thought last night id update to this one, i mean it couldnt be any worse than .342 but with the same number of apps on .342 and .402....402 is much better battery wise.
Only slight issue i have is that nobex premium doesnt seem to be available for my device anymore. I emailed them about this and all they did was reply back and say my PIN has been updated but my PIN hasnt changed since i got this 9900 lol.
Ive tried downloading the free version of nobex but it hasnt unlocked the premium version. The premium version is the one that RIM was giving away as part of their almighty worldwide cockup when BBM and BIS services were down for a week or so.

.402 is lovely except on most at&t 9900s, the microphone doesn't work during calls. well documented by many users (incl myself) in the leak thread.
but i agree, .402 was awesome while i had it. touch screen was much improved and os fluidity was top notch
Just a crazy comment that I posted some time ago on someone elses thread and was thrashed.
What bothered me about .340 and .342 was they were 208 meg downloads and all the previous 7.1 OS and this .402 is is over 240 megs. I just think some thing has to be different when the downloads are 20% bigger. I don"t ever remember a download for BB 7 at 208 meg.

didn't notice other bugs because i only had the os for 24 hrs. can't have a phone that doesn't work as a phone....
if you have at&t, save your time and wait for the next leak. if you're on another carrier, i highly recommend .402

Seems pretty good so far, but i only installed yesterday, but the battery life on 3G seems better already. I used to have to switch to GPRS to save battery.
Also, anyone know how the media server works? I turned it on last night, and my TV can see it and even browse, but when I try to play a file, is says not supported.

Installed this last night! Huge Improvement over the past 3 OS versions!
I was having big battery drains on the two releases prior to .342, but all had the the terrible music player hangups.
Anytime I would play music, the player would freeze at the end of a song or randomly during one. I would often have to do a battery pull after trying to play the next song in the playlist wouldn't work.
I was playing music all day today and it was great! Battery life was great too! Bluetooth on most of the day, bridged with my Playbook for about an hour and I still had plenty of juice!
Only thing I noticed was that I was having some issue with ram. After a few battery pulls after installing the OS and clearing the cache with Fixmo tools, my Bold 9900 is working out great!
Hope you all who have it installed are having great results with this version!
It is certainly the new gold standard for me!

.402 is the best OS I've used so far. Great battery life, especially on my 9900. It lasted me from about 11:30am to 2am, yes, am, without going to the low battery yellow color. I've not experienced the muted call bug, on either my 9900 or 9810 on Tmobile. It's OS leaks like .402 that make the wait for bb10 not seem as badSean
