So I downloaded it and installed it this morning, so far no huge changes that I can see, anyone else download and install successfully?
P.S. - This is the first time I ever downloaded a leaked OS I usually stick to the vendor one but I felt like I needed change.

There isn't much difference between .402 and .342. There are some changes like the parental controls, media server, and firewall. I notice no difference in the keyboard accuracy though like Bold mentions. Battery life and memory leaks seem largely unchanged, and a few minor bugs remain. Overall all of the variations of the 7.1 releases have been pretty solid for me.

i agree with bold, the keyboard is more accurate especially if i use the direct input. Battery is also better, from arround 9% to arround 5%. I use my bb heavy everyday for emails and bbm, even do a meeting using the bbm and it can consumes the battery to arround 15% per hour.

Have .402 installed. Not much difference but then I noticed that the battery is excellent now. Wifi always on and heavy use will see the battery go down by an eighth/day. Everything appears to be crisper as well, but that is probably just the case of being a fresh install. Without any of the gizmo's I can't say alot more, o yea, camera's alot more responsive.
If anyones having doubts, don't, I would download this guys

My keyboard no longer has a delay, and input seems more accurate. Battery life and memory seem better too, but I am just on my second day with this install, so the freshness of the OS may wear off. So far this is a big improvement in performance with no real noticeable improvement in features.

Issues with this leak...
I've installed this leak and no one could hear me during phone calls. This happened even after wiping my phone and installing it. My phone also locked up a lot. I ended up rolling back to v184.108.40.2062 where I have no issues at all.
I'm on AT&T, has anyone else had this problem?

After several days use: Everything remains a wee bit snappier. With all apps re-installed, there is a a few megs more memory. Can't comment on battery life. GPS seems weak. Antennae same as .340 which is terrible compared to the 7.0 software.
Witrhout using Media Player - I have no memory leak whatsoever. Will stay on 218.5 all day. As soon as I begin to use Media Player memory now drops at an alarming rate. Currently losing 40 megs in 24 hours. Resorting to 2 battery pulls a day to stem the tide.

There is also a discussion about this leak over in http://forums.crackberry.com/leaked-beta-os-f95/
Seems that some at&t users are having a problem with the person they call not being able to hear them, but no reports of such problems from the CDMA side.

Shrunk the OS down to 76MB, Installed .402, looked like it was a smoothly.
Now the Desktop Manager can't connect to the device.
Today is a good day. Such a beautiful day. Amazing... I feel like smashing something.
Update: Well this is fun. I downgraded to .340 just for kicks, and DM is recognising it again. I feel the vein growing

- BBM is useless to me. Now I can't delete it!
Had my first processor busy (something like that) last night. The phone became unstable and had to do a battery.
Didn't do it on the prior 342 but showed its face in the last leak.
Disappointing to say the least.
It appears that the 9860 is having more issues then the 9850 but both phones
and their OSs need some TLC from RIM. Will it get it? I am not so sure.
RIM seems to have put the 9850 on the back burner. In fact it seems OS7 is
all on the back burner. (almost a year for an OS7 theme builder????)
This is major mistake by RIM as those that went for the full touch screen BB are the
ones that would jump on a full touch screen BB10 phone.
If they cant stabilize an OS that has been used for years, with slight warm over improvements how the heck can we expect them to get BB10 stable and dependable?

I've said it before, I'll say it again. It's not the media. It's not the bloggers. It's not Wall Street analysts. It's RIM. The stock is selling between $12 & $13. And that's exactly where it belongs.Ad Lucem
