    Hey folks

    I have just installed the Hybrid version of the BB10.2 Alpha .228 Core + .340 Radio from scrid2000. Also, I have been testing the new way to sideload apps to the phone by Xsacha .

    Gotta say that it's really fast All those little glitches that still happened in 10.1 such as Txt msg delay is gone.. You can spam as much as you want!

    Updated:
    Browser is really quick!
    Maps GPS locating is fast.
    My phone did not get hot once yet..! (Not for me anyways.)

    So far everything is well, there are a few apps/features that doesn't work as previously been confirmed:

    Stock weather app (You can just download Accu-weather meanwhile..)
    ( Updated: .341 Camera App do not have the Low Light feature anymore.)

    Updated: Things I notice with this OS.
    Certain apps are not fully closed, it's running behind in the background such as Skype. (headless) There are no Active Frames open, but whenever I open Skype, it opens instantly without any loading. I also verified my memory and it is ~ 500MB left. That could mean that there are some apps that are still running in the background as usually, if all apps close, for me it should be roughly 1000MB.

    The Android RT doesn't currently have the "Back" Bar , no swipping from top to center anymore either to have it pop up at the bottom.

    Before doing all this, I did backup my phone, and I did what Kris suggested in the other thread to a lot of users, to back up the contacts on Google Contacts. It took a bit of time to have all my contacts backed, but once it's done, it synced amazingly fast. All my contacts, emails and such are back. I can't really provide feedback in regards to the battery yet as I'll give it some time to kick in.

    There's a few changes here and there. I don't know if screenies have already been posted, as I've read through every page of the leaks but I haven't seen much screen shots of the new OS. I also haven't been in the waiting rooms.

    So I decided to upload a few screenies for those that wishes to wait instead:

    Note: These are merely things I noticed, I may have not noticed it in previous OS'.. If that's the case, I apologize beforehand!

    New loading screen logo most are aware by now:

    Calculator design change has been there since 10.1 TBH, the colour scheme is terrible compared to the old one, and the lack of previous calculations display is a step back.

    Previous calculations are still there, just not in the tear away paper style. If you notice, there are three grey lines at the bottom of the calculation window. Tap that....

    I believe the re-occurrence in the alarm app has always been there. At least for me with Rogers 100-3

    I have a problem with BT in that the phone pairs with the handsfree device, but once a call connects. It drops the device but still expects an external speaker and mic. There is no audio for either end of the call, but if you select handset from the call screen then you can continue the call normally. Did not occur with any of the previous 10.1 leaks or official. I'm not the only user to have noticed this.
