    seriously dude......stop stressing and do it, the more you freak out about it the more likely you are to mess with something or take some dumb precaution and brick your phone. It's 2 simple clicks of the mouse, just do it already.

    I'm on the fence too. Only had mine for a few days, and can't imagine not being able to use it for even a day (if I mess it up.)

    Just do it, I was kinda sketchy my first leaked OS too. I went ahead with it, without reading any directions (i don't recommend that now) and everything was great. I haven't looked back sense.

    You'll sweat bullets the first time you do it. Just follow all the instructions to the tee. Keep multiple tabs open with all the different pages for referance while your disconnected from the net while its doing its thing incase you need to look somthing up. You shouldn't have to downgrade when an offical comes out because it will be a higher number like .118 for example. Now go upgrade your berry and be a man you'll love it afterwards, I almost promise lol

    if it is any consolation, I took the leap yesterday, and it went absolutely smoothly... my storm seems happier too.

    my best advice for you is this, BE PATIENT through the process... it will take awhile and have you scratching your head wondering if the thing got stuck... just leave it be and let it do it's thing, and you won't be disappointed... I'd be willing to bet that anyone who b"vricked" their storm upgrading did not wait for the process to finish properly, and yanked the sync cable out to pull the battery...or something along those lines...

    Also you may want to review the upgrade 101 thread on crackberry it is full of good tips!

    Just use the apploader.exe file in it instead of DM. Its a lot easier and quicker.
