    Most of the later OS builds have some pros and cons.

    The .138 is ok, but is missing the in-call timer on the screen. The later OS builds like .160 and .175 have very fast data transfer speeds, but you might get the chirping sound while on a call (Verizon users). Additionally, many people have had issues with ringers/notifiers sounds not working with these later builds (.160+).

    4.5.0.131 is, IMO, the last stable OS build that has decent data rates, a call timer, and no profile/notification bug that requires you to do battery pulls to reset.

    Then of course, there are the hybrid OSes. You CAN have the high speed data from the later OS builds (.160+) if you are willing to tolerate the potential for the occasional chirping while in-call. Some of the hybrids have addressed the profiles/notifier audio problem as well.

    great info, thanks!

    I also noticed when running the hybrid, I had 27mb free memory, while 4.5.0.175 gave me 50mb free.

    of course, I didn't run shrink OS first

    The hybrid you tried is made up entirely of 5.0 files. That's why you had so little file free left.

    There are 4.5 based hybrids out there with 4.6 and 5.0 files that will give you the speed of 5.0 with the file free memory of the 4.5 OS. You wont get the clock, browser or threaded SMS of 5.0 though.

    I'm on Verizon and other than the 4.5.0.77 that the new Curve came with almost 2 years ago...I have used hybrids found here. They are the only way I could pick up freed memory and speed while bypassing the terrible problems that plague us on Verizon: speakerphone blasts, lost profiles and chirping.

    Thanks to the hybrid OSes, i have had none of these things! Currently using 4.5.0.175 with the radio files for .131 (which is probably the most stable for Verizon as Xliderider has stated.) I used Shrink A OS and it worked great.

    Threaded SMS is when SMS are kept connected so you can follow a conversation and revert back to re-read and see if you missed something along the way. Sort of like AOL chat room conversations or BB Messenger messages.

    You can separate your email and SMS inboxes.

    On .138 as well. Would upgrade to 5.0 but I'm not willing to lose GPS.

    I upgraded my old Windows Mobile phone to a newer OS just to have threaded texts and it was totally worth it.

    .175 downloaded straight from RIM. Upgraded from .138 almost immediately. Haven't had a single problem, infact, to be quite honest, I had entirely forgot this OS was supposed to have any known bugs at all before reading this thread and getting reminded. I'm going to be moving on from my trusty 8330 soon though, once the Tour 2 and Snapdragon Droid get confirmed, probably after CES.
