After playing with 126.96.36.199 for a couple of hours... :
Looks lovely. Very quick. Flick Scrolling etc.
Love the ability to make the theme a Today one via options!
Editing/correcting text with the bubble is now doable! Yay!
It all looks and feels like a Storm should have done from the start.
However... unless the BIS network is behaving oddly tonight this Leak is doing odd things. The BB logo next to "3G" appears and disappears. Its mostly not there. This is not just a cosmetic flaw, as it affects the phones functionality.
... I am sat 4 feet away from my femtocell, so signal strength is maximum 3G.. you cant get any better, (There is no natural 2G or 3G in my house, hence the femtocell). However I am being connected to and disconnected from the BIS network constantly. This affects all kinds of things in a bad way... you simply cannot do the things you want to do, WLM? Nope Web? Nope.
Hopefully its the BIS networh thats acting up, if not then I suspect that this Leak is seriously flawed.
App World. Download, install, use. Reboot and it's gone. Same happens with BBM5.
Camera works fine for me.
Still testing but if the BIS issue continues its back to 188.8.131.52 for me.
Call it Paranoia but even after the usual uninstall of Quincy before updating I smell a fish.....
<EDIT> If anyone has a working link for BBM5 for OS 5.0 could you share it please
I would like to give a big thanx to the person that leaked this OS. This is absolutely fantastic. Not sure how it compares to .230 that u 9530 guys have, but everything so far is superb. I haven't noticed any flaws with this build as yet. Signal strength maybe ever so slightly down, but it is never full in my house anyways. BBM & Windows Live Messenger working fine. Pictures loading instantly, menus open and close really quickly. Lock & unlock is fast. Memory on first boot was 41.9, which is more than I have had on previous build with the same stuff installed. As I said earlier, not seeing the probs other users having. I did a Wipe using BBSAK then installed. Proper buzzin with this build. :-)

I now have an old version of WLM in my downloads folder called "Archived" deleting it will not delete it, its still there after reboot.
Cider, I can't understand y Appworld and BBM aren't working for u m8, I have no probs with them. Did you wipe phone firrst with BBSAK?
No. I never have and have never seen the need to. App World is now working after the last battery pull. I'll have another shot at BB5 for 5 when Ive rebooted again lol:P A working link for the latest BB5 for 5 would be good though, if anyone has one
