View Poll Results: Do you recommend .122?
- 48. You may not vote on this poll
Yes, do it now
Yes, but make it easy on yourself and wait for the full leaked file
No, keep .113 (or any other OS you've got)
Help make the decision easier
I've read through 10 pages of the .122 threads and my head's about to blow. OK... just to make it easier for everyone wanting to know who recommends the upgrade to the .122 OS, please take the poll and let us know.
Do you recommend the .122 OS coming from .113?
All I'm interested in is the poll, so there's no need for discussion (unless you REALLY fell the need).

running 122 with 114 as a base and having no problems fewer bugs and faster over all though people will tell you it is because it is just a fresh install, but so was v3 hybrid 3 days ago and I had big memory problems. no more!
It might help to know what you are looking for. What problems have you had that you are hoping that 122 will solve? not every one has the same expiriance.

It is a nice update but the consider this:
1. Will you really notice a difference coming from .113? - NO
2. Are there any new features found yet? - NO
3. Are you stable and running properly on .113, except the mms? - YES
4. .122 is no miracle and will not lock your memory with 3-5 MB of start-up levels or make you battery last 7 days.
5. It has not fixed the "color-banding" issue some complain about (BTW: never happened to me)
6. Some people complain about extreme variations in signal strength, I call BS on that!!!
Now, that being said the update is easy if you know what you are doing. It is not an .exe update as other OS leaks have been presented. Just be careful especially because there are no .alx files in the download.
On my BB Storm, I did the wipe, reload .75, and jump to .113 to try and fix the mms business as suggested by Civic and the mms continues to not forward. I went to .122 last night without a wipe and it is working fine.
Most people post their results within 10 minutes of install, if not sooner, and anyone with 1/2 a brain knows that is really an insufficient amount of time for analysis. No “findings” are worthy without at least a week of usage and testing. Most people around here get so giddy about a new OS to load that most "findings" are all placebo. The real performance benefactors of .122 will be experienced by those jumping from .75. Although if they are still on .75, .113 may be easier due to the .exe file. Now, all I will say is that my phone did not crash, runs well, and seems very snappy overall but I did notice all that with .113 as well.
If you are like me and enjoy the latest and greatest, go for it. If you are content and stable with .113, why change. I loaded last night so soon after the files were posted because that is the way I am.
All storms are handling OS loads differently because each and every one is unique to its owner who has different settings, apps, and uses the device differently. Between phone usage, web browsing, messaging and email, and gaming everyone's device becomes unique. There are even some who do nothing but check the device every 2 hours to watch the memory!!!! So the only way you will know if it is right for you is to try it out!
Make sure you back up your data and third-party apps ( I am sure you know this) and give it a go! You know you can always reload .113 if you have bugs that you cannot live with.Flavor of the Day... 220.127.116.119
Thanks BB Chaser. I agree with everything you said, and we seem to have very similar personalities when it comes to the OS on my phone. I just wanted an easier way to get people's opinion on the OS, without having to read all 31 pages of posts. I think the first thread started on a new OS should have a poll from now on.

We I can't blame you for wanting quick and reliable info for making a decision. It seems that all the findings threads a junked up with "downloading now" BS or "rebooting now"
Drives me crazy!!!!
So, did you update?Flavor of the Day... 18.104.22.1689

Just a different prospective (not necessarily right or wrong):
1. I saw a big difference in overall responsiveness coming from .113
2. I have never had my holster functions working before and now they are.
3. I was stable on .113, but there were little issues (like receiving a phone call and not being able to silence it, getting an email and having the screen stay dark for 15sec before I could view it, and 'dead clicks') that no longer exist.
I am signing praises about .122, but every handset is different so give it a try to see yourself. Really nothing to lose.

You might as well try it out and see how you like it, you can always go back down. I jumped up to .122 from hybridv3 and its running well right now. Crackman has something coming out to the public on saturday though that ought to be worth checking out. Crackman knows what he's doin!.122

I downloaded it last night, but in the middle of the download I got called into work and didn't get back until I was too tired to load it.... back at work now, so will try it again tonight or this weekend, provided I don't get called into work.

If you do install use the homemade installer from lyricidal. It makes it a breeze to install.
I've kind of made this my personal mission to let people know about this, it works that well. However I still haven't had .122 long enough to say whether it's better then .113. It appears to be at least as good.Totally addicted!!
Thanks for all your opinions. Loaded .122 on Fri and am loving it. Like anything else, still has a few bugs but definately an improvement over .113. Small, but an improvement.
