    @ Ian,

    Can i reload RC2 for my 9790 with the .523 radio ? Does the download in the first page now has a .523 sfi or do i need to install a fresh file and follow the drill?

    You need to do a fresh install and swap the .sfi file yourself, sorry, that's the only way to do it.

    Thanks a ton legal ! Although i am not having much trouble with the OS overall but since so many people are of the opinion that .523sfi is better than .569, hence wanted to try ! its just a case of getting greedier
    Will keep you all posted if and when i switch over.

    You may or may not notice an overall improvement.

    Some carriers seem to give better results with .523 than .569, suck it and see.

    I am on Voda as you are and .523 is working well with RC2. I haven't run RC2 with .569 so can't assist with a comparison.

    What you will notice is that the battery will run slightly cooler with .523 .sfi.

    Cheers, look forward to hearing your findings when you have done the swap.

    I think that Zocs has posted a link to the .523 .sfi a couple of pages back to save you installing the whole OS just to copy the file.

    Yep, found it, post 658.

    I believe that's the 9900 sfi. Maxx will have to install .523 for the 9790 and use the sfi from that.

    @ Phill,

    I have, but I hardly ever use it. I've just got full .523 installed on that.

    Yes, as legal say, you will need to get the .523 os and install it, than take the file from that, this wont effect the later os directory.

    .569 is now available for the 9790 i believe so that should make for a good hybrid base.

    Just installed the latest update and did a battery pull.

    This crazy OS rebooted in less than a minute !!!

    Have you tried restarting the computer and then trying to uninstall ?

    If in doubt do a fresh install of 569 then copy the 523 file back into it then.

    Right, CCleaner would have been my next suggestion.

    I know that it's not usually recommended, but maybe you have no option but to delete the OS rather than uninstalling it.

    Only other thought is to run install again and then try another uninstall.

    Will do, but since this file stays would i have a problem while loading the OS via DM ?
    I have always managed to remove the last OS before i install a fresh OS, please confirm !

    On 9900 now running following install:
    1. base OS .569
    2. .569 codes copied to .523 java to get the mix with east-asian input
    3. the mix copied back to .569 Java folder
    4. and copied .580 from 9930 into the Java
    5. and on the top the RC2 mix
    6. and finallythe dakota .alx files ported

    The outcome is really stable OS running on the Bold baby, with really goos battery life - during light use discharge rate ~1%+, when the phone really abused (on a highway, listening podcast, on PB browsing via bridge, few calls, few BBMs and some texts and mails) the discharge rat for the "abuse hour" never went over 8%

    Thank you guys!

    Great battery life..
    Some texts, some browsing, twitter and facebook.
    Highly recommend this with 7.1.0.580 as base os.
    Be sure to wipe using BBSAK to avoid any problems like I did...
