    Now for my own post today.

    This OS is awesome and so far i went 8hrs with browsing, SMSing, Emailing and calling a few friends (some talked for 15-30 min each) and Used alot of my apps and it still had 45% battery power left before i went to bed last night.

    I woke up like an hour ago and its at 35%, all i did was browse a little and open some apps up and checked some SMS messages.

    It awesome ppl, last OS the original one from rogers .162 would not last this long when doing light stuff to moderate use. It would be around 10%-20% before i went to bed.. NO word of a lie.

    I never used standby mode yesterday, but i recommend all do so when your not using the phone PUSH DOWN the mute Button to activate it and MUTE again to deactivate it when you want to use the phone.

    This way in a 2 hour period it will only use around 5% over that period as opposed to NO standby mode = around 10% per hour or 2 hours, depends on the charge already.

    I noticed that when the battery is at 50% or less, it will drain faster.... not weird as that is how most batteries work in the engineering of them.

    Kinda like your Gas Tank, FULL will allow to drive longer then if it is Half or 1/4 Full as then it will burn faster.

    Did you delete the vender.xml?

    I hope u backed up everything and also did a third party backup.

    I also mean't to ask do you mean its installed on your PC or your phone now?

    Also what version of DM do you have as i used the latest version 4.7 which is suggested to use for this procedure.

    It's working. I did not do any backup, the Loader.exe asked if I want to backup and I said yes. It backedup everything for me, so I didn't end up losing anything.

    Everything seems to be working fine.

    Thanks!

    Don't feel like going through 31 pages.... so has anyone had an issue with receiving MMS after this upgrade? I just noticed I havent been getting any MMS since I did the upgrade, I can send them I just can't receive... I'm gonna downgrade but I figured I'd ask to see if it was only me with the issue...

    Updated to the East Asian beta last night, since from reading all the pages here, people seemed to experience less problems with it than the vodaphone, even though they're supposedly the same.

    I feel adventurous now, and after a day of using it, I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Everything seems faster.

    i've been running 266 for a few weeks now... I noticed faster menu browsing, faster browser, and better memory (about 47 megs after battery pull)...

    As far as cons, it seems like battery is draining a bit faster. Battery usually lasts me a day and half, but now i have to recharge after a day. Not a biggie, but it might be for some...

    I was curious if anyone else is having this problem or not with OS 4.6.0.266? I have recently upgraded to version 266 and have found the OS to be faster, and the browsing on WiFi to be much faster. All in all a good OS. However, for the very first time with my Bold, I am getting random reboots while fast forwarding while listening to music or podcasts. I have rarely had random reboots on my Bold with all of the various OS's that I have tried, so I am leaning towards thinking that this is only specific to 266. Anyone else run into this problem or heard about it?

    Yes, I can confirm that too. It is only happening to me after updating to .266. I've been living with this issue for a month now since the update.
    Didn't feel like wiping out everything and downgrading to .247.

    Waiting for the next OS Version to show up

    Hey all, i'm newbie here, just bought Bold yesterday.
    can you please tell me the info i don't know?
    1. If i upgrade my OS (for ex : to .266), will I lose all of my data (contacts,music,etc) on my phone?
    2. I read some posts that mention for instance "Memory stable at 60,2MB free". Does this refer to "application memory" on my "options->memory" screen?
    3. can you explain what "Battery Pull" means and its function?

    Thanks before..
