    Just upgraded from the official .77 Verizon OS. It was VERY smooth. No hiccups. SO far, the OS does seem a little snappier, namely when i type in a name from any screen 2 search a # in the address book. i used to experience a lag and the first letter in the name wouldnt register. That problems seems solved. the previous OS seemed to have a lot of lag when scrolling, and switching from program to program. so far so good.

    Another thing is, maybe its just me, but assigned custom ringers seem like they are a LITTLE bit louder as opposed to barely audible before. but again, it may just be me. this was an ONGOING problem 4 me since i got the curve. but it seems better now.

    LASTLY the speaker blast. It might be 2 early 2 say, but after 10 test calls. i havent gotten it as of yet, this does leave me hopeful. When i installed OS .77, i had it on the first test call.

    Thanks for posting the new OS. I was beginning to thing that the 8330's reached the end of it's usefulness and we were out of luck for new updates. this update keeps me content until the shiny new 8930's (im so hopeing!!) surface.

    I had that same problem updating from other versions with that newer DM. Disconnect from the internet so DM cannot check the internet to see if there is anything newer and to check if that version is for your device (it checks the Vendor ID).

    Either pull your network connection or as I did just run loader.exe. Seems DM 4.7 likes to do that update check regardless if you tell it not to or not.

    Yup. That's why step #2 is there in the "basic version" of the guide.

    open word to go or one of the others, menu->check for updates. i had to upgrade it again too for some reason.
    i went to word to go and checked for updates as well and there was, so i downloaded it. but then after the update of word to go and restart it said error everytime. so i deleted it and and restored it back to right after the install of the new os. but im just wondering if anyone else is having this problem or did something just go wrong with the download of the update of word to go.

    Upgraded from .97, Speaker blast is gone. Seems much faster no more hour glass.

    NOW THE BAD.

    I sync my itunes to an 8gb card, most of my songs are AAC (mpeg-4). Now when I go to play these songs it says that is an unsupported format. The Only songs that play now are MP3.

    I'm going to reload .119 one more time and see if I encounter any problems. I've been trying hard to encounter these problems and the only one I've come across is the video light issue. I'll report my findings if there are any.

    Mine starts up quick after the initial load. It had started and was taking forever so I killed it and tried starting it again and now no problems. Don't think I did anything special.

    1_2_MaNY, can you confirm the flash never comes on for the Camera (still) app? Auto and On don't work at all for me-same as previous 4.5 betas.

    Yeh, it took mine forever to load too. I would start it, kill it, restart it (getting a little further in the load process), kill it, restart it, and so on.

    Got fed up and re-downloaded and reinstalled the program. works fine now.

    Does the camera flash work or is it just a problem with the video camera portion?
