    noticed this as well, i guess this is not a multi-language release ... have to go back to 353 until next release of international version. i tried to put the *_ar.cod files from 353 on with 362 but it didn't work, just read no input.

    Forgive my ignorance on this, can I just cut and paste this into the run dialogue box?

    "dir /a /s c:\vendor.xml
    I would type "cmd" into the run box, and then copy / paste the string (without any quotes) into the command prompt window. If you just run it from the dialog box it will flash by quickly and you won't see where the file was located on the drive.

    I'm a Sprint user. So far, seems ok. Had trouble woth internet, but it was at roughly the same time RIM servers were jacked up. I also had my browser unexpectedly crash on me twice. Not really seeing any actual improvements, so I'd say you may want to wait.

    Hi Folks...

    I have a 9930 on Sprint and just installed this version without issues. I installed it directly through the Desktop Manager Software instead of following the instructions to use the loader posted here. Everything went perfectly smooth and without any issue.

    The best part of this OS upgrade is that they fixed the problem with the trackpad. Specifically, the OS version currently being supplied with Sprint causes the trackpad to act crazy when your thumb vertically scrolls while using the browser. What is happening is that your thumb hits the bottom of the screen causing the page to immediately go back down to the bottom. With this new version this is solved as Blackberry made that small portion of the bottom of the screen non-responsive while using your trackpad. This in no way affects just using the trackpad though.

    Also, OS is much faster including browsing and running applications. Trust me, you want to do this upgrade.

    Does this OS fix the issue that the touchscreen comes un responsive while scrolling down in the browser? All the OS's I've had have this issue where it gets stuck untill I use the trackpad and then the touchscrene starts working....

    I'm on Sprint Running .362. It's been wonderful for me. It's actually fixed my batter drain issues. After 2 days, my batter drop went from 13% an hour to about 7% an hour, and has been great otherwise. It's good to be on an OS optimized for CDMA.

    This is my first time loading a new OS my by phone. I am using apploader. In the screen to select the applications to install, there are several that I do not recognize and that are unchecked. Do I need any/all of these? They are the following:

    Supplemental SureType Wordlists
    Blackberry S/Mime Support Package
    DOD Root Certificates

    The size column entry for all of these is 0K. Does that mean there is nothing to install? Thanks in advance for the help.

    Installed on my Verizon 9930 last night. It does seem more responsive (especially the track pad and touch screen). Battery life seemed worse than stock (.254), but the software may need a few days to calibrate. Will post a follow-up after the weekend.

    What happened to the old system of putting Pros in blue and Cons in red . It really helped when sifting through all the info trying to decide to upgrade or not. Thanks

    Best build so far I think. I don't seem to have as many issues with my inbox crashing when opening a new email (would just go back to home screen). I don't seem to recall the browser crashing at all yet either. Both were frequent problems on I think .340 was the last one I had installed. Can't remember now...

    My experience with the battery on this OS build (vs. Verizon .254) is quite an improvement!

    The battery runs down less quickly while the phone is mostly idle. The difference is significant. With little screen use, I will get over 30 hours before the battery dies. On .254 I would have been lucky to get 20 hours under the same conditions. When I say "idle", I mean that I don't pick up the phone often and check an email / phone call, etc. I do have several apps syncing fairly frequently, and am having several emails per hour pushed to the phone.

    I can't say I know enough to judge whether heavy use (screen, GPS, phone, browsing, etc.) drains the battery less under .362. That said, the drain rate at idle is critical, since the vast majority of time I am not typing away on my phone... it's just sitting there waiting.

    So, I really get much more useful battery life out of .362. I waited patiently for someone to compare this OS to the last official build (.254). It wasn't forthcoming, so I took the plunge. I hope this is useful for some out there who may be considering an upgrade.
