    i dont think you have to downgrade to .75 being that .141 is actually an upgrade to v .132.

    Does that sound right?
    That is correct! And if vzw releases it, no need to delete vendor.xml for vzw users

    what if the ota only recognizes those devices using Official firmwares and a downgrade is needed to ensure that there is no spill over problems from the leaked os's?? just my .02

    What do you mean by manually rotate the screen?
    I think he means will the storm be able to lock in portrait or landscape mode if choose to.

    Why would you have to do all that? Just upgrade.
    Us with 5.0 hybrids will have to downgrade to a non-hybrid version I'm sure.

    I meant rotating between portrait and landscape views. I'd like to have an option to turn off auto-rotate and set rotating to something like a convenience key. That way, if auto-rotate is off, the phone will remain in portrait (or landscape) no matter what, unless I push the convenience key to manually rotate it. I understand the benefit to having the phone auto-rotate, but I find that the phone rotates far too often on its own and is still too sensitive.

    I may be in the minority, here, but I find myself almost always in portrait view, so I rarely have a need for landscape. That said, it would still be nice to manually rotate to it when needed.

    If you go to the "Wireless Upgrade" option on your Storm, it recognizes what OS you're running. Mine says, for example, 4.7.0.122, and if I upgrade to .141 everything will be fine.

    Radio has dropped more than enough hints to suggest its going to be released today.

    I just hope Vodafone aren't far behind

    I agree with you on this. With all the great themes we're getting it would be sweet to just keep it in portrait specially when the theme has so many options on the home screen.

    Not sure it will ever be over. VZM kinda bit themselves in the **** waiting so long to fix these problems. Leaks are everywhere. Even the local stores are loading them to solve problems. I think people will keep looking for better. Maybe not as crazy as before, but still looking. Just look crackberry has blown up with new users and threads because of how bad .75 is. It's always been a great site, but the storm has defiantly brought a lot of people here.
    I would never have joined if the storm wasn't such a turd. My frustration with the Storm is like a parents frustration with certain children. If your child is dumb and not very able, then it is not very disappointing when they do not amount to much. However, when you have an extremely gifted child with mounds of potential (i.e. storm) that doesn't do a damn thing, you are more inclined to get angry. It's due to the child (product) not living up to the potential that it should...

    Unless of course you are a Telus or Bell Subscriber, then you WILL need to delete the vendor.xml file.

    True that anyone with a 5.0 hybrid will have to downgrade first?? I thought the update process "automagically" (love that slacker comercial) wiped the device...

    if it was out it'd be out already...remember VZW is in NJ, so they're 3 hours ahead of me on the west coast, its noon there. it'd be an automated update, prolly happening at a predetermined time early in the a.m. or really late p.m.

    besides, vzw just got .141 for testing, idk how they could be releasing it as "official" without testing it fully anyway!
