Life on .75 Official
I have installed every leaked OS thus far.... I used to check crackberry every morning when I would wake, and every night before bed, just to see if a new OS had been leaked or not. I did this, because I was not happy with whichever OS I was running at the time. I would have to say that .86 was the best leaked OS thus far, but even it had problems that resulted in my having to do battery pulls at embarrassing or frustrating times of the day.
Last night, after having enough of .90 and it's random reboots, I finally did a wipe with JLcmder and reinstalled the official .75. I have to say that .75 is definitely the most stable OS out there right now.
I know now why Verizon has postponed releasing any of the other OS's. Since installing .75, I have had 0 memory loss. Still at 43.1mb. Yes, my camera is buggy, but my BB messenger doesn't lock up anymore, my media player is fast like it used to be, and my Suretype works like it is supposed to.
The only reason I am posting this, is to encourage those who are frustrated with their leaked OS, to go ahead and downgrade back to .75... Life on .75 is pretty darn good.Using a Crackberry Storm on Verizon w/ the OtterBox Defender Series

Makes sense. I am back to .86 because .90 was just too buggy with my phone. .86 has been consistently stable for me, but if it starts to act up I will just go back to .75, a very stable build and see what comes next.
I am not sure why there are so many complaints about bugs in a leaked beta OS. If it works and you like the features then keep it. If you cannot tolerate the way it works with your phone, then go to the OS that works best for you.

The biggest issues I have with .75 are video camera freeze, requiring battery pull, and ridiculous lagtime on the camera. All basic functions are fine. Some memory leakage, but this may be caused by the programs I have installed -- Weatherbug, Flycast, etc. Battery life has continued to improve over time, strangely enough. It's excellent now.

After experimenting with all the latest Beta OS leaks... and having nothing but major headaches with .90... I can most definitely say .75 is the way to go (although I did eventually decided to stay with .86 for now).
