    I'm running .1925, totally satisfied except for the battery life. Has anyone loaded the .2141 radio autoloader over .1925 and experienced improved battery life? Thanks in advance

    I was for half the day yesterday. My device ran cooler. Didn't notice anything battery wise, but data transfer speeds showed a marked improvement.

    TBH, you would see a benefit in installing the complete OS. Everything about it is just faster.

    I would update to 2141 just because of the improved battery life, however, it's a bit too early to know for sure. It's just over 24 hrs right now
    The 2141 radio and should not be too different from the 1899 or 1926 radios. Keep in mind this is a minor update mostly for bug fixes. However, you can easily just update to 2141 if you want. If you only want to change radios, I would flash 2142 radio, but I don't think you will be able to tell the difference

    I've contemplated installing the OS but i've been reading through the comments and seeing people running into problems (wifi to name one) and other than the battery life i'd say .1925 is the BEST beta i've ever used. i don't wanna take the chance of installing it and running into any probs...was hoping the radio file would improve it but i guess not.

    Apparently the radio in my build is .1056 could that be the problem?

    Radio can change battery life, but very rarely, and almost never in minor releases
    I was not aware there were a lot of problems in the 2141 OS. 2141 is a bug fix OS patching the problems in the 1925 OS
    And 1925 good battery life? Really? It's almost as bad as the 10.2.0.1323 that our BL team never released. Mecca should remember that! We were so happy we had a new OS, yet we were pulling out our hair because it was so sluggish and battery draining. Horrible if you ask me!

    I mean you can load up the 2141 radio if you want to update. It's in the 2141 OS forum on the first post
    I personally would just backup and load the whole 2141 OS though

    2142 Radio file ran great with 1925. If you're experience is to your liking, don't update. You've already jinxed yourself. Swap radios, and report your findings.

    For over a month, I was using 1056/1925, like you are. If I notice any degradation in call performace and connectivity, I'm definitely installing 1056 again, for a 1056/2141 setup. Had it not been for a radio file update, pushed from BlackBerry to 1899, my Q would still be on 1056. Again, the choice is yours. If what works well for you works, don't mess with it.

    Let me know if there's any improvement in the battery life.

    I have been running the new OS since it leaked and so far I'm happier with the battery life when compared to that of the previous OS. Previously, I barely got through the day after a full charge. Now, I'm getting through the day with about 20% remaining. I hope it will get even better over time as the new OS settles down. Also, this new OS seems to be running much smoother. Some intermittent Bluetooth and 64GB SD card issues from the previous OS are no longer present. However, my Porshe style clock is gone and I can't find the 10.2.0 bar file to side-load again. Anyway, I'll resolve that issue soon.

    I don't want to take the chance of loading the OS and running into bugs. My only gripe with my present OS is the battery life.

    I recently went ahead n loaded the 2041 radio so I'm just waiting for about 24hrs to pass before I give my results. So far I definitely see an improvement tho.

    Battery life on .2141 is worst than .1925, in my opinion. I used Sachesi.

    I've definitely gotten better battery life since switching to the 2141 radio. The time is now 5:17 pm here in Brooklyn, my phone hasn't been on the charger since 6:45 am, I've been texting, bbm and checking instagram throughout the day and my battery is currently at 61%. Got home around noon today and my phone has been connected to wi-fi since then as well. Would've been at about 35-40% had I not switched the radio.
