    Just updated to OS ver .217 ...what are the main differences or improvements?

    I was having stability issues with the old OS including random reboots. Will this update fix those?

    Not sure how many people are using .217..... The newest official release is .282 and people seem to also use .266 and .247 a lot.

    Plus I would say - only running a new OS will answer your questions. You'll find out soon enough if your update fixes your issues.

    I'm an ATT customer and when I go to the Wireless Upgrade it says there's no new updates available. How do I get .282?

    What improvements are seen in .282? Thanks.

    There's a sticky at the top of this forum about .282 that explains how to get it.

    But I am assuming that you're new to the Bold and it can be a bit tricky, because you are loading another carrier's OS onto your phone. Not actually difficult, just a few extra steps.

    There are two versions of .282 available - an Asian one (I think that's the stickied one) and a Rogers one from Canada.

    Hard to say what all the improvements are - lots of variation between users. Generally, more memory, better browser speed, no random resets....

    You have to delete the vendor file if you are going to use another carrier's OS. It's not hard, and the instructions are in the sticky. There is always a chance of messing up your phone, though.
