    might as well let you know this as well. i have tried the .90 radio code before (on verizon) and it worked fine for 3 days after. sure enough the reboots and VSOD (verizon screen of death) problems started happening and only got more and more problematic. thats when your screen is stuck on the black verizon loading screen that loads right before the phone boots. battery pull fixes that... temporarily. im just giving you the warning signs to look out for so you know that .90 decided to take on a mind of its own. gl!

    Can you elaborate on that bug?

    Posted from my CrackBerry at wapforums.crackberry.com
    Sure. When listening to music you can turn on audio boost to increase the volume level to a higher maximum.

    Menu>options>audio boost on/off from any media menu except for Now Playing

    In every OS if you got an audible alert while listening to music the music would pause, the alert would play, then the music would resume with out audio boost. This would cause it to resume with a huge and very annoying volume drop. Once bugged the only way to fix it and be able to get the audio boosted again would be to reset the phone.

    When you turn the boost on you get a warning about damaging your hearing...but the volume level is what needs to be paid attention to with this issue...

    Hi ghuman , I'm glad you have the .90 working with the 5.0 files! Myself along with a few others had horrible luck with that combo. Look at your "About" screen. The platform will say .114. That means you have the .90 radio code installed.
    Good luck!

    No doubt, it isn't for everyone. The reason for this thread is that there were "reset" issues that were resolved (per the change log for .148) that I hope will help with some of those issues with the .90 radio code. Time will tell....

    Am trying this right now....as my radio seems to suck with the install. My bars are jumping ALL over the place. I still hold onto 1XEV though but the bars go from 0 to full non stop!!! Do you think this will fix it?

    So just by upgrading to .148, I'm getting the .90 radio code?
    No you have to put it in there if you want it.



    ALSO

    For those on TMo that use the radio code and see random reboots I have found that it happens with certain apps that use the radio to find your location.

    For example, I have never had the VSOD or a reboot using 90. Until I tried Ubertwitter. The app worked fine but my phone kept resetting. I uninstalled it and no more resets.

    Just an FYI

    Not sure......each device is different, but my signal strength is as strong with .90 as is was with the latest builds.

    Yup my platform is that .114..
    Now lets see if that fixes my bar issues....the boot up time was superfast..less tan 2 minutes..Memory is good, booting at 46.5mb but I have epocrates running and that is a momory killer...but still booting with more memory than .141 5.0 hybrid...My BIGGEST issue is getting the bars to stop jumping all over. Will keep ya updated!

    Thanks,

    Haha I mean, no emails coming in at that time. Like when I needed to test it. I did do that and send service books and the bug does exist.

    ^^^so the 5.0 files work? Wonder if they will make the typing a bit more snappy.

    Indeed I will, but I'm sure most of us will be trying to get .90 to work with new releases. Video quality is greatly impacted as well as website image clarity. Before I used to think Bolt's browser was sharper and clearer, but it was actually the newer color banding issue.

    Kind of a sudden flashback but, it would appear the color banding is like back when Windows had "256 colors" vs. "16-bit/32-bit color". Anyone remember those ye olde dayes?

    Cool, thanks for that. I was pretty sure the radio was what caused/corrected this issue.

    This bug is just too big an issue for me because I listen to a a lot of music on my Storm so I will be sticking with .148 radio. It seems to me that Pandora (and others) sounds a lot better when the boost is working and it only works right in .148.
