    Hmm, my gut feeling (I could be wrong here) but I don't have a good feeling for .746. Temps too high? real or not? I guess I will wait till BL has their hybrid ready for this new OS. Maybe I will just do .714 with RCB2 when available? desiscions descisions. hahaaha.

    By the way, on another tid bit note for ya all. FIrst of all I worked for many years as a hardware design engineer for Modicon. That is just a quick background. We spec'd all of our products to run 0-60'C. Integrated circuits (IC's) today are all spec'd to run at 0-60'C. This is for commercial/personal use. They also have Mil spec ic's that are spec'd to run at 0-70'C. So, in theory, we really don't have to worry about higher temps-but that is only in theory as there are other items to worry about such as the battery and the glass. Dunno if this is important-just a tid bit of info on heat-worry or not?

    Oh well, I will wait out on BL development on the new .746. Rah Rah Rah! I am rooting for ya BL team!

    I use modified alx. but it stuck, never happened with previou official and hybrid including RC7B1. my memory leak in 746 is +0.5MB, will it be >+1MB with the upcoming RC? LoL
    Yep, due to file changes in 746 you cannot use the old replacement alx files, however we have a new one
    prepared.

    First impressions of the .746!
    Has been 24 hrs since I loaded it and do find the temp running higher than usual, even with light use! Battery level and memory drain appear good, again with light use. Very responsive and quick; good browsing speeds. Haven't noticed any significant differences, other than temp with this build, as opposed to hybrids.

    Good to hear from you Big White, it's been a while.

    Sounds like RIM have been copying the BL builds and releaseing them as their own if this new OS is performing like a Hybrid !!!

    Have been busy these past few weeks; have been popping in now and then. And yes, it seems so! Just need to get the temp down a wee bit. Can only imagine what it would be like with heavy use! As ReBeL25 states, it may be a faulty temp reading? Currently my temp is 29c, not excessively hot I know, but im used to the low 20's or high teens! Despite this, neither the phone or the battery feels warm? I have been following guidelines for following hybrid install; battery pull, charge over night, and twice daily battery pulls for several days. Only time will tell. As an end note I have noticed the popping sound following a battery pull has vanished.

    The way you use your BB defines how good is your adr. Im a medium/heavy user i and i cant get to adr of 1>1.5%. Theres always something going on my Bold (BBM, BBMgroups, e-mail, phone calls) and i get about 4,5% Meterberry and 2,9% BBDA. During heavy use ive never seen adr higher than 14%. So, in short, it all comes down to how heavy do you use it.
    Ive been testing a 9360 for a couple of days and i liked it... Not a Bold but fast and small device. The battery gave me a working full day.
    Let's say I'm a Super Heavy user hahaha, my ADR on Meterberry is 11% and on BBDA its 9.72%. . .funny enough today my BIS network was down and only started using it now for BBM and Twitter. Opened up a few feeds but that's it. So I don't know why I keep getting high ADRs.

    I suspect that you may detect the smell of burrning if this .sfi is running as hot as is being reported !!!

    If I remember correctly (CRS at my age), my BB9900 took about two weeks before it settled down (BB9900, .714 with BLRC7B1-large SFI). Today I checked my 9900 and my ADR is .9% and temp is 19'C. I am a very light user.
    My BB9790 with .714 (RC7B1 and small sfi) is running at 25C' and ADR is .84% and this is after running at least two weeks.

    Waiting for v7.1.0.746_P5.1.0.546 for other devices

    It's been 5 days since I switched from 714 sfi to 523 sfi...
    Still the same RC7B1 on 714 base OS for Blackberry Curve 9360. Seems like it settled quicker than when I used the higher sfi.
    ADR now sits just above 6%. Temp usually ranges from high 20's to mid 30's. Stays on 20C to 25C when idle for at least an hour. But goes high up to 40C when browsing and streaming via YouTube or when long browsing of Facebook and Twitter.

    ...although network signal can only go as low as 70dB on 3G

    Working my way to switching to the leaked 649 sfi. I'll post findings after a couple of days.

    Good to hear, I thought I was the only one whose BB9900 needed that long to settle down. I'm also a pretty light user. Do you think how much you use your BB affects how quick/slow it settles?

    Hopefully we will have the next Hybrid mix available soon, it is already cooking
    Just curious, are you working on RC7B2 for 714 (and/or 746)? Or a brand new one for 746 (RC8A1?)?

    From my understanding, yet to be released RC7 beta 2 is optimized for 714 large. And a new RC 8 series is to be released for the 746.

    I'm currently .714 (vodafone base - large sfi) on rc7a1 - going very well - sfi definitely holds signal better and I noticed less issues with data connection after being off for alarm overnight - it takes a while to connect first off but other sfi's needed a battery pull.

    Missing the porsche theme - how do I get it back on or add it to the next BL Hybrid if it involves a reflash ?

    I have loaded .746, not as snappy as RC7B1, but surprisingly, the browser speed is around the same
    not sure if RIM has actually tune the browser but at least to my case, it is around the same speed as BL Hybrid


    Can't wait for BL RC8 to come out! BL team, you guys never fail to surprise us!
