    If you do a battery pull in the middle of upgrading, you'll brick your berry, this is because it's taking off one OS and putting on another, and if you do that while its taking one off or putting another on, it wont successfully do so. It takes about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes to load the new 5.0 OS on to the berry, during this it will be stuck on certain screens for long periods of time, i've upgraded and downgraded about 2 or 3 times to different leaked versions of 5.0, and i'm back to using my 4.6 because some bugs really irritated me. but i'm picky to the point where i wont use somethin unless it works 100%.
