    You can either get straight 151 OS or an OS hybrid based of the original 151 but with some added Bold 5.0 files.

    There has been the Storm leak OS 5.0.0.140 and you will experience no lag...fastest OS I used but since its 5.0 some apes might not work properly.

    If you do not use facebook or myspace. Go for 5.0.0.140.

    It runs like nothing else. Then just wait till a new 5.xx comes out or the 4.7.164 for 9530 comes out. I feel it in the air, its coming.

    I personally would go with a 151 hybrid by One of a Kind PC. I have had much better results with this that straight 151 and no it's not a placebo effect. I had reboots and freezing with straight 151 as well a very slow sometimes not working accelorometer. I don't care what people say about hybrids, but I have had much better results with them.

    cus i don't need .151. .148 works fine, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.


    and this is one of the rare instances where i'm running official release from my carrier, and i'm fully supported if i need it. doesn't happen very often, so i'm trying to enjoy the moment.

    Hmmm...Patches Im surprised you arent on .151 indeed. Fresh off the install it has never leaked memory, battery life is good, color banding is gone, and we have the fade transitions. But I see what you are saying though, hey if it's not broken then hey.

    I liked .151 but Slacker and Pandora can have issues which were supposedly fixed in .164.

    I'm back on .148 until then.

    i'm very happy with .151, i haven't NEEDED to do a batt pull in about 5 days. And even then i didn't really need to.

    very nice OS. I was using .148 as well, and it had mem leaks for me. I don't use facebook/myspace or any of those social networking tools, just email/sms/bbm. I'm contemplating going to 5.0.0.140 or whatever the version # is. But i'm worried about it not doing what i want/need and doing that browser fix for telus bleh.

    I agree I truly love using the 5.0 os. The key for it to work smoothly is you need to wipe your device first and the load. It actually makes a huge difference in the performance of the device.

    I'm glad your happy but the current ' fixes ' to make 148 run better are unnecessary if you upgrade to 151.

    My first attempt at upgrading my device was with .151
    I ran on .75 forever because I was afraid to brick my phone. So I waited for Verizon to release the official .148
    When I saw that there was a leak for .151 I decided to give it a shot and man am I ever so HAPPY
    I love the speed, the transitions and the stability of this OS.
    I take back every single bad thing I ever said about my beautiful little baby Storm.
    Oh, by the way. I regret not having used all the previous leaks out of fear. It was really simple.

    Patches, with the amount of knowledge you have, I think yoy could teach some VZW reps a thing or two.
    In other words, you could probably fully support them.

    Yeah, when I worked for VZW I would frequently get in trouble for not being available cus people were always at my desk asking questions. Funniest part was when I facilitated data labs for blackberries to teir 2 and 3 reps and I was teir 1. Roflcopter!
