    Two things i tried with this latest install :

    Used AT&T special with .694 base and .658 sfi.....it did the the back up and load the OS but in the reboot step, did not complete the process and post the red light again starts to reboot (this went on for 4 times and i disconnected device). Had to wipe device clear until error .507 came with BBSAK. LEARNING : Don't try this combo, it does not work !

    Then on a .694base loaded RC7a1 with .658sfi. Loaded like a charm ! This combo works, will post later for findings !

    Maxx, for the 694 at&t, we have to use 694 sfi only..

    Here is the good news, starting today BL team is gonna test the 694 at&t V2

    Capture nux, small app from appworld and you can assign convenience key to it.

    Im now on .714 with 9900M_v7.1.0.714_BLRC7A1. This is the first time ever I have encountured problems with any OS, Hybrid or none hybrid. Bad radio for me here in Norway, and problems with email settings and suddenly the device turn itself of and I have to battery pull to get it to work. I have tried to install 3 times.

    Kind of strange since Telenor, who released the .714 OS is Norwegian.

    Now im back to .658 Telefonica Spain with 9900M_658_BL_RC6Beta1_Full, this is an awsome build, with good receptions and no problems.

    Pleased to report that my problems with RC7 appear to have been self inflicted and nothing to do with the OS.

    I had shrunk out BBM and this did not seem to play well with App World as it tried to interface with something that wasn't there causing high battery discharge.

    So to all you shrinkers out there, take note, delete both or neither if you want the OS to be allowed to perform as it is intended.

    Thanks guys for the advice freely given as always.

    Meterberry reads from the time it goes off charge and BBDA reads it from midnight to the next 24hrs.
    Thanks. I had forgotten about that. I just reinstalled Meterberry with this build. I haven't had it on a device since about January.

    Rc7A1 for me is by far the best. It's only been a day and a half but it's solid. Battery drain is 3.15%/hr.

    Yeah I use hotspot daily and it just eats up the battery like no tomorrow on all builds I've run. I only turn it on when needed, and then back off when I'm done.

    Any new mix from BL is Always Welcome......that was my friend's phone yesterday but bring it on, i'm ready with .694 base.

    My only request would be to make it work with either .658/.523 or.714sfi, don't know how but if it runs a wee bit cooler i will give it a good long run

    Observations :

    RC-7A1 + 714 (os/sfi) has turned out to squeeze excellent ADR whilst giving maxed out performance.

    { Speed/snappiness, smoothness, browsing experience, apps handling } are further enhanced by the [7-Alpha-1 + 714] OVER [6-beta-1 + 658].

    This is my Day-2 with 1-2 batt pulls every 6 hrs and lets see as the OS further settles in.

    Bravo!! BL Team. The gourmet has pulled off another killer recipe that gets ALL STARS.

    RIM : hope u are listening .. ... U are useless !!
    But keep giving us more OS's so that we continue to enjoy better recipe mixes courtesy Heartiest Thanks to the BL guys ...

    You cant say that RIM is useless. Because of them, you now are using the Blackberry Smart Phones and using their OS. its only they never learned on how to produce a new better OS's than these Hybrids. Without them, there will no new OS / Blackberry lol! They are not useless, they are CARE-LESS!

    Damn, I thought that I had got things sorted with RC7 but overnight it has been back to idling at 2% per hour.

    Tried it with and without App World and BBM and with .714 and .658 .sfi

    Just can't seem to be able to get it to idle on fesh air like all the previous BL builds have done, normally around 0.6%.

    Seriously considering returning to RC6 but might persist until Special Edition 2 drops.

    Not every build is compatible and being friendly with our device. Some people gets better result with this, and some other doesnt. Thats nature in this BB OS thingy. I experienced alot with previous build of RC's and from 1 to 7, i got a couple of RC that treats me well and yeah, some are doesnt, at ALL!

    P/s ; Im gettimg high ADR when idle-ing with RC7 too, never encounter this thing with other RC build also. But, i just load RC7 yesterday so, give it some times to settle and see how it goes we're on the same boat Legal lol
