    I was previously holding off... then downloaded RC8... now I see Verizon released 7.1.0.755... and I'm confused if I should start to wait again!
    7.1.0.755 from Verizon is for 9930 and for Sure something more to play with for the BL team.
    They will be cooking already ( i can smell it).....lol
    In the meantime you can check out the RC8a, which is a VERY GOOD build, i have been on it for a couple of days and is giving Awesome results !

    So, looks 755 has no led feature nor nav bar on map.

    So if any those on 9930 wanna try 755 base with rc8a1 and add those lines of codes on their platform alx and the java folder?

    Remove the existing virtual keyboard cod and replace with first post one?

    update my 9790 :

    Already 20 hours reinstall from RC8A1 + base 746 + SFI 746 (large) to RC8A1 + base 746 + SFI 714 (large) without Wipe
    more responsive and the temperature cooler than before

    Now is the time update my 9320 with RC8A1 + base 746 + SFI 714(large)

    give it a couple of days to get better results.
    Do I need to keep doing battery pulls?

    At least 2 per day six hours apart over the first 2 days after install is advised.

    Yes, really. That is the advice given by Zocster way back in the early days of this thread.

    Full schedule is:

    Battery pull after install and restore of data and apps

    Battery pull prior to going to bed on day of install followed by full overnight charge

    Next 2 days 2 battery pulls each day at least 6 hours apart

    I have always followed this schedule and have had great results from every build.

    Okay, will do. I missed one yesterday, I think, but just did one now.

    And now the touchscreen doesn't work.

    What can I say about RC8A1 other than it is just about as close to perfection as an OS can get.

    Runs cool, virtually no memory loss, idles at 0.6% and not seen an ADR over 2% during a normal working day.

    Browser lightning fast, little or no checkerboarding.

    Using the exact same .714 .sfi as with the last 3 BL builds the signal also seems stronger in known poor reception areas. Eg in my usual Friday night Pub best I have previously got was 2 to 3 bars of 3G. Last night I was getting 4 to 5 bars.

    Sator, this is your best one yet, here's to the next one !!!

    After a BL install, I always follow a battery pull spaced @ every 6-8 hrs apart,

    initially 6 hrs apart for days 1 & 2 ...

    followed by 8 hrs apart for Days 3, 4 & 5.

    I've been getting fantastic results this way ...

    The settling in can also be somewhat visually seen by noting the way the "bar builds up smoothly and paced very evenly" when the OS stabilizes and indexes itself. Initial times, the bar build-up will be uneven, maybe jumping also.

    This is jus' my 2 cents from the observations ...

    Yes, I agree with you audio_engr, we can visually see from the bar move to the right smoothly and evenly.

    How long do you usually leave the battery out for ?

    I work on 2 minutes.

    I follow Zocs battery pull schedule religiously post an installtion of an OS.
    For those of you who say " no settling time required" .........we can agree to disagree and Move Ahead !

    Got to have a good sound system as well as a great phone bro.

    Music should always be played loud enough to annoy the neighbours but with real quality, enough Bass to rattle the windows and no distortion !!! (Courtesy of Cambridge Audio 840 Series, the BB of the Audio World as far as I'm concerned)
