    Ive also noticed a edit button when viewing a contact that was not there in my last OS. I had to hit the menu button to edit now an edit option is right there on the contact card. I also can confirm on the bold letters along with the switch application thing. I use to have issues trying to select text to copy/cut with the trackpad. It would select text above or below the text that I wanted and I would have to then go into menu and click start selection. This has been fixed as I can now just simply use the trackpad to accurately select the text that I want without having to go into the menu.

    NO it's vendor.xml files c:\program files or (x86) if 64 bit windows)\common files\research in motion\apploader vendor.xml and the other is in users\your profile\app data\roaming\research in motion\blackberry\loader.xml\vendor.xml

    Or open a command prompt and run this

    click start,type cmd, enter, cd\ [enter], dir vendor.xml /s /p [enter] let it run, take note of where it finds them and go delete them from those locations and try again.
    oops,,, what he said..

    do you mean it displays your name or incoming caller??? if you go to phone>options>call logs & lists, there's a tickbox on the bottom of page that says,"show my number",,, untick that box...

    Google Maps is working again.

    Edit: Wifi Music Sync is back as.a selectable option in 'Applications'. Works well, too.

    I don't think the media player memory leak is there anymore. I haven't had to do a battery pull in a couple days. Was getting used to previous OS telling me I was out of memory and could delete things to free up room. I would expect this anytime I used the media player. That hasn't happened with this new OS.

    For me the load worked fine. I was able to do thru Blackberry desktop, after deleting the vendor files. BUT the spelling correction works differently by giving you only one word, a handful of my apps disappeared, and other touch things don't seem to work (although that is probably a lower setting).

    I've done a LOT of OS updates, both official and leaks. This one is BY FAR the best I've installed (coming from 0.755). I've been running on it now for a week. Everything is FINALLY stable!

    The bad: BB Maps not finding the GPS immediately and the speed dial buttons need to be pressed a little longer to dial. (Updated on 3-7-13: sometimes my small "in box" notification icon at the top of the phone shows unread messages, but there are none. Only a reboot will clear it out.

    THE GOOD: The boot up is fast, and the memory leak is very minimal. (Like 1mb over a few days of heavy usage) The media player bug is fixed! The volume appears to be louder on my Bluetooth devices, so i am ratcheting down the volume on the phone. Native LED Notifications PER contact means getting rid of an app, YAY!

    Thanks BB for not abandoning support for this device, just because BB10 is out finally.

    Agreed. For me, everything works. Finally.

    Agree with most above. This is a fine OS. Along with the native BB Navigator app and voice calls for BBM - I can only imagine what the state of Blackberry might have been like today, if this device with this OS and Navigator released 2 years ago and BB10 released last year. I know I shouldn't dwell on what might have been, but every now and then...

    There are two(2) Vendor files, did you delete both? If so - walk through how to fix a bricked Berry thread. There is no reason that one 9850 OS can load onto your BB and another can not. None.

    Edit will for can. Leaked OSes need help to load.

    There are TWO. Has been for a very long time. Many threads about this. Feel free to Google delete vendor file BB. There even is a small program to delete both files. Do this and everything will work fine. Promise. I've been doing this for many, many, many years.

    I have had a fairly good experience so far. The memory is definitely better when using the media player and streaming media.

    The downside for me has been GPS and battery. GPS is not always bad but has failed to connect using Traffic requiring a reboot.

    The battery reading is the worst. Admittedly, it could be a bad battery, but the coincidence is too hard to ignore as it started right after the update. The main problem is that the reading drops quick with heavy usage and is shutting down my radios. Then a battery pull brings it right back to where it ought to be. Or, if I just plug it in for about 10 minutes, it jumps back to 50% where it ought to be.

    With this version, you can pick the color of LED notification on a contact basis.
    how to do this ????

    Select a contact in your Contact list, Menu button and choose Edit.
    Scroll down to the Custom Ring Tones/Alerts and choose which one to edit (Phone, Messages, etc)
    A new section in that setting is Visual Alerts, you can choose a LED color from there.
