    If you are going to run OS6 on your 9700 you need to prepare the OS by 'shrinking' out unneeded and unnecessary files that you do not need. The 9700 was built to run OS5 that has a smaller file size than OS6. The latest is .706 and everyone will have different opinions on what is the best.
    Try .706 after you have shrunk it down.

    Doesn't anyone search the forums any more before they start a thread? This topic has been totally exhausted now. I could understand it if we were still bombarded with OS leaks but that hasn't happened for a while now.

    I personally have not been happy with any release of OS 6 on my 9700... So finally I ventured into the land of hybrids, and will never look back. I highly recommend any of the B@stard hybrids. They run so much better than any stock OS. And also as others have said, definitely shrink the OS before installing!

    os 6 was never meant to function well on the 9700.thats why rim launched the 9780.on a 9700,never updated to os 6.os 5 was like zeus on wheels.battery life of 2-3 days was the best on any smartphone.rim really did a wonder with it.

    If you know how to manage the OS you can run OS6 perfectly well on the 9700, just ask all those doing so.

    I don't think i'm technically minded, or gifted enough to change the OS to a hybrid. I just about managed to upgrade my handset to OS6 haha

    Im running OS 6.0.0.666 on my 9700. I shrunk down the OS before loading it up and I find it is a very stable build so I am not upgrading from this build. Started out with 100mb application memory. I do not have any memory leaks, if I do, which has happened, it was related to an app and not the OS. Deleting the app stopped the memory from leaking.

    Its clear that if you want to run OS6 on a 9700, you must shrink the OS down before you install it. There is really no other way to have a pleasant experience with OS6 on a 9700.

    I have been holding off the upgrade to OS 6 until just a few days ago for a couple of reasons I have been reading on the net - shorter battery life and sluggish performance of OS 6.

    However, I decided to go ahead because OS 5 browser has been very annoying, being slow on the internet, it was unable to load or take ages to load some specific websites even with the wifi on. I have been upgraded with OS 5 a couple of times in the past 2 years and it didn't made difference on browser if any. I was willing to go back to 5 if OS 6 doesn't go well.

    But after shrinking and upgraded to OS 6, I have to say that I am really surprised.

    The battery is now 1/3 left after a couple of days with texting, e-mails, map and internet, on its first charge after upgrading. My phone is just about to be 2 years old and my first impression is that the battery life seems to be more or less the same, if not better.

    Best thing about it is the new browser, I no longer have to wait for some websites to load in time. It is quite snappy on some data heavy sites which OS 5 browser would have struggled. I think it has more to do with the browser being webkit and this has given it a big advantage. Another bonus is that it can do multi-tabbed as well.

    Performance-wise, sluggish is not a really right word to use but the appearance and opening folder/applications of OS 6 looks very 'polished' if you know what I mean.

    A media gallery of 900 pictures loads up a much more quickly after opening it the second or third time, unlike the OS 5 which was still sluggish, no matter how often I opened!

    I have to say that OS 6 has given Blackberry 9700 a new lease of life! Just make sure you shrink it first.

    Men usa esta version 9700AllLang_PBr6.0.0_rel1965_PL6.6.0.137_A6.0.0.46 1 es la que uso y no tengo problemas, BTW you can use OS6 with no problem you just need to know how to do it, no need to downgrade to 5.

    hope this helps

    Shrink it with BB Boss 2.2 which is what I did.

    Did a bit research on the net to see which ones to keep and which to remove.

    Those are my observations too. I switched to OS 6 after updates to some apps gave me problems on OS 5. I shrunk OS 6 to give it more memory to work with and it runs very well, better than 5 in many ways. And I agree on the new lease of life for the 9700.

    Of all the OS6 builds for 9700 that i have tried since the day it was leaked in late 2010, here are my favorites...

    .448, .615, and.... .668 (i'm still using this build up until now and holding onto it until something seriously better comes out)

    2 cents
