    I don't understand all these battery problems. I've been through all leaked and not leaked firmwares and they are all about the same.

    Been running my Bold 9900 for the day (just over 12 hours since disconnect) and I'm at 85% battery. With WIFI off, BT On, 4G on all day.
    I'm not a heavy user, but all of these people complaining about it not lasting a day, I have to say there must be an App draining the battery....
    Exactly, you're a light user battery issues come in when you're sending tons of emails, bbm & talk a lot my friend

    Try doing the same thing on a samsung galaxy s2. It won't last 6 hours without screaming for a recharge.

    Never owned a galaxy here so I cant comment. But I owned the 9700 and 9780 so that is why this is becoming unacceptable to me. I took it off the charger at 7 so yea im getting about the same as the galaxy s2

    Good to read all the positive feedback. Any chance of this upgrade bricking the phone when coming from 261?

    How is the battery life of this .503 version compared to the .540?

    Im using mine for like 3hrs normal usage and im on 65% battery life now.

    Battery seems to be draining fast with .540 build.

    Updated to 503. Discharge seems to be faster than 261 if not the same.

    Still meh??

    Loaded 503 ... my reaction is "meh"

    Battery suck down remains at about 5% per hour.

    I think I'll hold on this OS for a while ... this is my 3rd OS update in the last 6 days!

    So I just updated to this OS yesterday and to my dismay, I can't type Chinese anymore on my phone
    Is there anyway to install Chinese in it? This update's doing fine, but I may consider downgrading to my original OS because I've been stuck without Chinese in my Curve for 2 years, and I definitely don't want the cycle to repeat itself again. Anyway, how do I downgrade back to original OS?

    Thanks!

    Shouldn't be an issue, I just loaded it on a Vodafone 9900 in India, just make sure you delete vendor.xml and do a clean install.

    Should be under c/program files/common files/research in motion/app loader

    Or just search for vendor.xml and delete the file.

    This OS works so smoothly on my 9900 Rogers, my blackberry don't get hot when I use Browser for hours. But there is not no suport for East Asian Font. HazzZ, it will be FABULOUS if this OS supports East Asian Imput.

    First off, welcome to CrackBerry!
    As soon as you have the chance, please update your profile to include your device, carrier, and location. This makes it easier for others to assist you.

    So long as an OS is for the same device, it's compatible. You have a 9900 and this is a 9900 OS, so same goes here. All OS's are made by RIM.

    Ok, thanks. But how do you delete the 'vendor.xml' ?
    Here's my guide I've previously posted elsewhere. Someone else just contacted me asking for it too, so here you guys go

    Here's my short-version OS install guide if anyone needs a refresher...

    ELITE1's Quick OS6 UPGRADE GUIDE

    1. (Optional) Uninstall any previous OS from your PC.
    2. Download OS to PC. Use Internet Explorer to do so, not Firefox or Chrome. (For leaked versions, the browser is irrelevant though.)
      *If 100% certain you've previously used FF or Chrome on same PC to DL an OS successfully, feel free to use FF or Chrome again.
    3. Following successful DL, run OS file to install OS on PC.
    4. On BB, go to BBM Options, scroll down to Backup section. Ensure Remote Backup is enabled AND also conduct a Local Backup to media card.
    5. Go through any 3rd party apps that have option to save settings to media card, and conduct Backup to media card from menu within each of these apps. (Examples: all Bellshare apps such as BerryBuzz & BerryWeather; QuickLaunch; Shao's apps such as Wallpaper Changer & SixTools; Show Me The Images; etc).
    6. Connect BB to PC. Open DM and backup device. Close DM.
    7. (Optional) Use desktop program like BBSAK or BBMCP to backup 3rd party apps.
    8. On PC, navigate to
      64-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader and delete file therein called Vendor.
      32-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader and delete file therein called Vendor.
    9. (Optional/Recommended) Run BB Boss v2.2 or Shrink-A-OS/BBH+ Tool.
    10. In same AppLoader file where you deleted Vendor, double-click on Loader to initiate OS upgrade. Follow onscreen instructions.
    11. After OS install is complete, perform several physical battery pulls over first 1-2 days for OS to "settle in." Perform first batt pull very soon after OS is installed.


    PS I've posted this before in other threads, but there always seems to be some people that appreciate a step-by-step each time.

    There won't be any themes until the RIM release the software to build it. My guess is it will be a loooong time before we will have any themes.

    Looks like I lost Vietnamese input capabilities on this file (42k), is there any way I can import this into the current .503 version?

    found my answer:

    Looks like I'll try to install the cod via BBSAK. [Worked, had both Telex and Multi-Tap]
