    You can also use BBSAK but the restore feature loads all apps as 1 so its kinda messy.

    BlackBerry® Software Updates


    Key Changes Good/Bad

    Valace2 will stop complaining for a little while <<< sorry Val, had to do it
    Seems like good speed increase
    Click is better
    Text selection seems better


    OpenGL problems for some people
    Opera Bug still there
    Themes lose all current settings and have to be reorganized for some people
    Possible AVI/XVID problems
    Autocorrect issues for some
    Voice problems for some calls, garble or robotic sound
    BBM Chat problems still exists for some (Fixed with newer releases)



    If you are having issues with this OS please do a reinstall. It seems several people have had much better success after loading it again. Dont know why but just try it.

    On another note, battery is awesome. best i have even seen. Normally i am around 2-5%. This OS isnt even touching it.

    Please, no one ask findings at this point. Anyone and everyone who's heard about it has only gotten past loading the OS.

    Do you want quick and inaccurate findings?
    OR would you rather wait an hour or two for accurate and well thought-out findings.

    Because the other thread is ALREADY loading up with pointless "Downloading now.." and "Installing Now.." garbage. Lets try to keep this on FINDINGS AND FIXES.

    - The "Loading Images xx OF xx" part of web browsing has increased substantially
    - My screen feels softer (could be an isolated scenario)
    - BBM Group Chat works (the keyboard IS there)


    - The mobile You Tube site playback has better sound & video quality (could be my wishful thinking.) This stays black & neutral until someone else can confirm...

    -Getting a bit of lag when attempting to type out a long email*


    *Although laggy, .713 has NOT had time to settle on my device.

    Same...My SMS typing is actually not laggy at all, and FaceBook seems to be running a tad bit snappy-er than it previously was.

    *sigh* Can't we just get along and enjoy the OS love?

    I've already cross-posted in the other thread, so I will repost here.

    1. My screen does feel softer. I like it. Thanks for giving me the term I was seeking.

    2. I never used BBM groups before, so I can't vouch for the group chat error. I do know that, when chatting with a BBM contact, my keyboard was awful, and now it seems loads better.

    3. Seems to be snappier overall. Can't quite pin it down, except to say that, I use my BB a lot and I can definitely a difference. Sorry to so unscientific, but that's the best way I can put it.

    4. Battery life-don't know. I have plugs all over and I like to keep my baby plugged in when possible. Gotta give me a couple of days for that.

    That's it for now. Hope this helps someone.

    I would have thought that by now they could have fixed this. Unbelievable.

    I'll keep prowling the thread until all the kinks are identified. I hate to have to downgrade AGAIN.

    I thought I was the only one with a softer screen until Hydroz agreed. You have confirmed my thinking.

    Thanks

    Poynt and google maps won't pick up my GPS location. Both using cell-site location and it puts me in a different state.

    Poynt and Google Maps GPS working here. Maybe check your permissions on those apps, and make sure GPS is On and Enabled.
