Finished installing .825 - some observations:
- Signal's great (compared to Rogers .746) - on Rogers
- Sound seems crisper than .746
- experienced memory leak with .746 (re-installed OS twice after full wipe, memory leak always there) - .825 no memory leak
- overall .825 seems snappier (after database rebuilt) and definitely boots faster than .746
- updated BBM to 7.1 without issues - had to re-install (upgrade?) AppWorld twice for some reason (?) - how many versions of AppWorld are there??
Issue noticed so far:
- once I start YouTube to watch a video, hitting the ESC key too often results in a complete system freeze - only option is a battery-pull
-- had problems restoring contacts and calendar from Desktop Manager v.188.8.131.52 from Outlook 2010 (using Organizer). First attempt to restore calendar events using DM Organizer ended with "successful restore" but checking calendar on BB showed 0 (zero) entries. Second attempt transferred all calendar entries. (Is this a bug with DM v.184.108.40.206 ??? Never experienced backup/restore issues with the previous build...) ... Only way to restore contacts was using "Restore" function in Desktop Manager - Organizer will not restore contacts backed-up to Outlook - at all.

Ok, Finally I have figured out how to update this damn thing!
Elite is Missing a few Major steps and they are:
After you see Application Name
Select to Restore your Data
A New screen will show up saying: Application data will be backed up and restored. Your device will be reactivated after updating the software.
(THIS is the KEY step to knowing that you Are going to have an Updated Version even from doing ALL of Elite's steps and I Mean alllllllllll of them)
Then hit Next
And last, wait for your device to update.
Edit- Well maybe What I suggested will work for YALL, but uh I just checked my Device Version, IT STILL SAYS .746!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello guys! Which version of the .sfi is included on that build?
Revision number can be found on the version page.
For the .794 China Unicom for exemple, the version is 18.104.22.168.1, SV 52. I got really strong signal with (Orange France liked it).

Does a wipe before installation prevent memory leak? It has been my opinion (which may be erroneous, of course) that installation of an os wipes the phone automatically.

Was perfect after wipe and since then I have always done a BBSAK wipe before installing any new OS and have not had a single issue since.
Memory leak with the latest BL Ultimate Hybrid is negligible, 0.6mb over the last 5 days since last restart after updating an app.
Try it, nothing to lose and may well sort your problem.

I would also advise doing a fresh install of apps following a new OS load too.

Memory leak will occur on any Java-based BBOS. It's what they do, caused by poorly written apps... and the reason the battery pull was invented.
