Tell me how it is . . . coz I'm pretty happy with my current OS, but I wouldn't mind upgrading to .681 if it is better than the .509.
I've upgraded to .592 but had some issues, so went back to the .509 .

So far im impressed, the boot time has improved significantly and I have not noticed any bugs. The menus are quick loading, smooth and responsive. Although I have only had it loaded for less then 24 hours the battery life seems good.
If i find anything else i will let you know but as it stands I have no complaints.

Good to know that I've downloaded it earlier today and going to install it tonight.
I really appreciate you posting this .681 multilanguage link
one thing I've noticed though . . The led stops flashing after sometime

I am a newbie and I want to update my curve to 5.0. If i install this package from another service provider, will it auto install the information to send/receive txt and picture messages? Thanks!

Isn't this an old thread?
I've got this one already installed:
And before that:
The only difference is Multilanguage?? I remove all other languages, anyway... just leave english and español...
Why aren't the OS threads stickied anymore? I noticed this on the ol' 83xx forums, and now on this... Has everyone lost the love for the 8900?
In my mind, I still think the Curve 8900 is the best one, but we're getting ditched because RIM didn't load this one with a nicer processor and more memory...
Look at the other NEWER curves: lower resolution screens, lower resolution camera, media dedicated keys, rubbery bezel and girly colors (vs chromed plastic on the 8900)... I believe the 8900 threaded too much into Bold territory and therefore got ditched quick... someone at RIM thought this was too good?
In my 8900 running 126.96.36.1992, if I press the top left button, the screen goes black and the keys don't work anymore and a prompt appears saying "Keypad is locked. Press the Lock button to unlock". If this is the standby function, then it works. This happens also if you press and hold A.
Also, if I'm a call is ringing and I press the top right button, the call is silenced, but not cut. If this is the mute function, it works.
Pressing K won't lock the keyboard anymore.

It is an Old Thread/OS, but since many were having issues with the Latest .822, this is the alternative. This OS is similar to the Hutchison's .681, however, I believe that the Vodafone's Release doesn't have that much bugs (no bugs in my opinion) with sound and other stuff which the .822 has.
No differences whatsoever between the .681 and the .822 in my opinion, except that the .681 has much less bugs.
Regarding your Top Right and Top Left Buttons, they are working properly

I'm having an icreasing number of problems on my 8900 running .592, especially since installing the latest update to the Facebook app. I'm thinking of doing an upgrade, is it true that the latest OS .822 is really that bad? Am I better off using the .681? Or would you suggest simply reloading .592 to see if that helps?
If it makes any difference, when I do a wipe I tend to use CrackMem rather than BBSAK.
