    Ok I know its been posted all over the place but I am just not sure which one to go with and where to get it from? I've come across a half dozen links to "New OS Versions" but which one does work or should I download and use?

    My new Storm2 is currently running Version 5.0.0.607 now I think there is updated versions but I could also be wrong??

    Can anyone let me know if I should just stick with this version or update and if so could you post a link?


    Thanks

    607 is the updated version... but I just downgraded to 517 and so far I'm not regretting my decision. OS 607 has issues that were getting on my nerves. I was going to do the hybrid, but I couldn't figure out HOW, so here I am wearing .517 and happy with my bluetooth, no lagging, and I issues with my keyboard.

    I noticed some lagging right after I started using the new Storm2 tonight, so the downgrade would be worth doing I think! Do you have a link to where I can uptain the 517 OS?

    Nope, use loader.exe.

    Shrinking the OS means you can remove stuff you don't need or use to free up app memory: languages, apps, games, etc.

    It seems that you are new to this so make sure you backup first just in case.
