After having this installed for a few days I haven't noticed any problems with this build. I did not install the language packs that were included with this build.
Some improvements I've noticed:
• Battery life seems a bit better. Unplugged it from the charger at noon today and currently (7 hours later) it is at 65% remaining.
• Compass calibration seems to occur much quicker in wikitude.
• Interesting side note, pretty sure this wasn't in the stock build but now in the about screen there is acknowledgement page to the Android Open Source Project.

Yes, these downloads are very slow with the "free" download sites. That is how they entice you to pay for the faster downloads. I am patient, therefore the downloads are free...
And yes, the Leaked All Language site has both versions available 9850 and 9860.
Running .353 since for several days now. Very stable, and seems faster than the VZN initial load. Only shortcoming was the large selection of OS5 ringtones were missing.
But with BBSAK I was able to reload the COD files with the ringtones, so I have my "Calypso" ringtone. So life is good and I am learning to use the Virtual Keyboard (previous 9650 owner). Love the large screen and touch.

Thanks again! I figured it out how to delete the vendor file which wasn't so hard. lol Completed the update, all is working fine and all I can say is thank god I can hide the down arrow on the keyboard. Gonna save me a lot of frustration! Woot!

Just loaded my 9860 on Rogers with this Official
First impression im loving that we can hide the hide the keyboard shortcut, which has pissed me off enough already and ive only had the phone for a week.
Also with this leak i am noticing that the touch screen and keyboard are more responsive than they were on the Stock OS from rogers. I can not comment on battery life quite yet, however everything else is working as it should cant wait to see how she works out. Will update with any findings
EDIT: After having the OS on my 9860 for almost a week now i can say that the mem leak and battery as finally become stable. Im currently only loosing 5mb in a day(MeterBerry), thats with running weather app, bbm, music, emails, txt, facebook, twitter, Also surfing the net. This also applys to battery - as i am writing this im sitting at 4.9% drain and running apps. I had charged the phone over night and watch an hour of a movie on the train to work and had only used 14% battery, which i think is not bad. I can usually run the whole day with no worries and thats with watching usually a full movie and running music for the walk to the train and the last bit of the train ride when the movie is done and still have about 30-45% depends on how much i message on the walk.
In my opinion this is a solid OS version I have not found any actual problems with this OS. So if you are waiting for the OK to install and run. Here it is.
Hope this helps

For some reason I can't install this.
Desktop 18.104.22.168 bundle 34
Yes, I deleted vendor.xml.
When I run apploader it just comes back with App House and Wireless Sync as the installed programs and nothing else.
I had uninstalled a 6.0 (on my PC)...like .500 or something, rebooted, installed this version.
I did create a full backup of my 9800 and then restored it to my 9860 before. Would this cause an issue?

Once that happened again i decided that screw it i am only going to run the phone with what it has and copy stuff over manually. But then i started reading on the forums that many people are having issues with apps and stuff. So i tried loading my phone with only contacts and emails/txt/ringtones to see if that might help and sure enough i have had no problems since i had done that, the only thing is that i had to download all the apps again. Which turned out to be a good thing because i didn't get alot of the same ones i had on my other phone.
So in conclusion........ When copying over an OS 6 device to an OS 7 device only copy over your contacts and messages, then download any third party apps you desire.
Hope this helps at all :d sorry for the long winded story just showing how some techs really have no idea about BB.
Have a nice day

well that didn't work either..... Only software that apploader will recognize is the telus branded software!! could there be a copy of the vendor file somewhere else?
I also read in another thread to click on Compatibility files under windows 7, but only a pool.bin file shows up, and if i get rid of that apploader will not connect to my phone at all
