    I've been using my upgraded PB for the last 4 + hours and haven't noticed any issues.

    I've tried, that is opened and used, most things and they seem to work as they should.

    Internet browsing may be just a smidgen faster especially when opening a second tab - but that is a very subjective observation because I've never timed them.

    Has anyone who has sideloaded tried to do a back-up yet? And has it worked?

    I know the previous beta OS 2.1 were already faster than the official ones. So if you upgrade from 2.0 to this build you will notice a huge performance improvements.

    I upgraded from OS 2.1.0.560, so far I have only tried the browser, the rendering speed and the keyboard are so much faster than before. I like this build!

    The Blaq twitter app feels noticeably slower in this build. It wasn't as laggy in the previous beta builds (I'm including that mini update that didn't even change the OS build number).

    I notice the slowness when scrolling through the timeline, it's not as smooth as before, and also when fiddling around with the options and menu...swiping down from the top used to be smooth, now it's choppy.

    Oh well... I'll just keep using it because it's still the nicest Twitter app by far, and the people at Kisai Labs are pretty good at updating the app.

    I was hesitant to update from a working but somewhat laggy .668 to this latest beta. However, I'm glad I did as this OS is way snappier, and more importantly all my paid apps work!

    So far, so good! My download didn't take very long, about 20min. Like others have reported, I did have the duplicate email. I have only had it loaded for about 30 min, so I'm still digging around. The only thing that struck me as odd was the "At&t Family Map" app. Especially since I have the WiFi model & NOTHING that I own goes through At&t. I have Sprint & TWC, so that one confused me a bit...lol. No problem though. I was able to delete the app. I am a VERY HAPPY CAMPER!

    Well, I was having battery drain issues after the 3mb update of 2.1 beta, this fixed that, also am seeing less checkerboarding, practically non existent when pages are fully loaded. This also fixed the issue with the previous beta where Pauldrivers Simple Media Server for Playbook wouldn't scroll (thankfully he had included buttons that would scroll up/down by percentage). My wifi is working faster also, was only getting 1.0-1.34 Mb/s dl speed and a ping of between 80-250 ms(I don't have the fastest connection in the first place) according to Speedtest, now getting consistently 1.5-1.56 Mb/s and 44-46 ms ping. Definitely happy with the update so far!

    OK, I just thought since I have the beta installed it would let me know there was an update to the beta. But i can go there an re-apply.
    You need to re-apply every time that a new beta OS is released. Cheers.

    Can anyone who has this beta version installed check if FirstRowSports is working as in not crashing because in the last beta version the browser kept crashing on this Site which is one of the reasons I downgraded back to OS2.0.1.358. Thanks!
