    Woot!! THANKYOUVERYMUCH!! D/Ling now...I can't believe it took me a couple hours to see this! Yet another new Storm in hand, this one friggin' ROCKS the responsive touchscreen, and now I'm all stoked to install 0.74. 23% D/L and counting.

    Thanks people!

    Aww i dont want to test it lol, and then brick my phone. Will we get an update?
    You should, I don't see why RIM would only develop one for Verizon only and not Vodaphone. I take it you are using an unlocked one, cause your profile says you are on Orange.

    OK, so it looks like I can only get the update to appear is I delete the vendor.xml file. I am on Verizon. Will deleting this file cause me any problems?

    Nevermind...once I select the new OS and click next it says "there are no updates for your device." WTF is going on?
    Any ideas?

    No problems with up date. Say it took about an hour and a few restarts to notice a difference but it is faster and much better

    unplug your internet connection then try it. I believe it is looking at the RIM/Verizon site for official releases. Unplug it and it will check your computer.

    Run the executable and have it run DM when its done installing and you should be good to go. DO NOT DELETE VENDOR.XML

    Lol, just hold in there. I'm sure the update will come soon enough. Verizon is supposed to officially release the update sometime this week. I would imagine that Vodaphone is releasing it around the same time. At least you have a unique phone, i mean how many other people have the Storm on Orange?

    Side note: I really do wonder if it would work... we have files that are called 9500.cod I would imagine if it was that big of a difference they would be called 9530.cod... just a thought.

    Using Desktop Manager in advance mode:
    Will someone be kind enough to extract (2) service books for a fellow addict:



    1. Browser (service book)
    2. App Center (service book)

    Save the file as an .ipd

    :: Hey, one early x-mas present ... thanks a mill!
    I can't resend service books since im running on TMO. Anyone can forward these 2 over?

    Installed, up and running. ALOT faster portrait to landscape and back. Faster opening and swithching apps. And quite a bit quicker and smoother scrolling through pics, etc.

    Thanks Don!
