    Hey Everyone,

    Quick question - I'd make a poll but I think there are too many options...

    I'm still running 4.6.0.167 that came with my Bold that I bought in November. I was considering 5.0.0.100 but I need google sync for my calender and don't really want to deal with a lot of bugs. My battery is a bit iffy on 167, so if a newer build will alleviate that it would be great.

    Otherwise I have very few problems, maybe one reset a week or a forced alt, shift, delete reset. What would you guys recommenced moving to, I can always go back to current with my backup file I suppose too.


    Thanks,

    Mike

    Using .266 here, with no issues. Better battery life, memory management, faster...

    There are tons of threads already about this very topic, looks for "Best Bold OS" or something

    .247 has been great for me and my apps. I read about some .266 glitch when rew/ff through media files (podcasts?) and 5.0's not ready for primetime (or maybe primetime's not ready for it), so I'm happy to stick with the most stable/strong OS I've used so far.

    i'm on .266 - i only had that "ff/rw during movie file" thing happen like 2 or 3 times the same day i installed .266...

    since the second day, however, it runs absolutely flawlessly, and i came from stock .162...

    slightly better mem management, slightly better batt life, way faster while browsing media files from mem card, and faster in menus throughout.

    cheers, good luck!

    Thought this might help you with that...

    You can find .266 (the OS that a lot of us recommend) HERE. You can also view the other available OSes for the Bold HERE.

    Follow these two guides:

    You will need CrackMem, which you can get HERE. The instructions for CrackMem can be found HERE.

    Take your time and follow the instructions carefully.
