MeterBerry 1.5.1 - Now with Signal Strength and Temperature Logging
You must uninstall any previous version of MeterBerry prior to installing this version!
Soft reset fixed for OS .151.
There are now three log slots that can be set to any combination of Battery, Memory, Signal Strength, or Temperature log. The logs can be in any order, or they can be disabled. You can have 1, 2, or 3 logs.
Everything is now accessed through the main screen's menu. The log portion of the menu is dynamic based on the currently enabled logs.
The log screen layout has been revised and cleaned up (units are now displayed in the title bar, etc.)
Signal Strength log can be displayed in bars or dBm.
Temperature log can be displayed in °F or °C.
Log screens support multi-touch - swipe left or right to cycle through currently enabled logs.
Customizable, Dynamic Home Screen Icons
Keep tabs on your battery, memory, or device status right on your home screen.
Customizable Battery and Memory Notifications
MeterBerry will notify you when your battery level or free memory drops below the thresholds you specify.
Notification sounds, LED, and vibrate behavior are all customizable through the phone's standard Profiles application.
MeterBerry keeps logs of how your battery level, free memory, signal strength, and device temperature change over time, allowing you to detect a failing battery, monitor how 3rd party applications or OS's affect your battery life, memory, or signal strength, find areas or times of the day where your signal strength drops, determine if your phone is overheating, and more.
Soft Reset (Battery Pull) Functionality
Reset your device by simulating a battery pull any time you want.
Or, schedule a reset to be performed automatically daily at a specific time.
Initiate the Java garbage collector to free up application memory on-demand, when you receive a low memory notification, or hourly when your phone is idle.
Event Log Management
View the system Event Log to troubleshoot application or operating system problems.
Clear the event log hourly when your phone is idle to free up application memory.
MeterBerry calculates the average battery discharge rate, change in free memory since startup, time since the last reset, and more.
MeterBerry is only ~180 KB in size when installed. And its run-time footprint is even smaller.

Yeah, I wish I would have seen the "uninstall first" message, too. I'm sitting here waiting for the reboot to finish because I lost the icon when I upgraded and couldn't find it anywhere. I was thinking the reboot would make it show up. Guess not. Sigh. When in doubt, RTFM, eh?Those aren't gray hairs; those are "stress highlights."

Not a big fan of losing the buttons and having to access everything through the menu but I'm sure the new logging options require it...
One note that I am sure you are aware of but I thought I woulld tell you all the same, it still won't reboot on 126.96.36.199 but now I get the something else has already requested the reboot instead of the Java error...
Thanks again for the update!Torch 9850 (v188.8.131.520)

Please give the new menu interface a few days to grow on you. I think you will find it is more intuitive once you're used to it, especially because you can now swipe left and right to move between the logs.
I know everyone is used to the buttons, but if we made a button for every new feature we add, the screen would start to get very cluttered, which it did when we added the new logging options. The Blackberry UI is centered around the menu, and moving MeterBerry's actions to the menu makes it consistent with the rest of the OS. You also don't have to scroll down to the bottom of the screen to select "Reset Device", for example. Believe it or not we have many users who never realized until recently that the main MeterBerry screen scrolls, and that there were more options waiting for them at the bottom of the screen.

I think it's better without the buttons, by it being part of the menu it feels more integrated as it should've been something that RIM should've integrated anyway. Good going GC, keep it up.
Also sent you an email about something else.

Looks real nice. Just wondering, why is there 4 logging options, but only 3 logs? Kind of drives me crazy!

im getting really aggrivated with mobihand. I read the instructions.. deleted the previous version and now when I go to download the new version it just gives me an error and keeps telling me that I've already downloaded it and won't let me do anything else. ... This happens EVERY TIME i go to upgrade. It's a bunch of bull****! I have the correct PIN on their site too in my account!
WHAT GIVES MOBIHAND!
