    Hi All,
    Was running RC8a since it was released and IMO is the best till date. Super smooth OS with fantastic ADr and Mdr, Awesome signal strenght and signal locking just to name some of the performance areas. Can't remember having an OS this long on my device.....lol

    Well just moved to 7.1.0.794 to give myself a reality check !
    Not impressed with this one for the time being atleast. It will need some BL magic before it becomes usable !

    I sincerely do appreciate the Awesome work of the BL crew when i use the official OS and find out the difference between them

    Well we all know the RIM OS's don't stand a chance next to BL hahaha. What else can you tell us about 794? Any obvious changes?

    not sure if it's my handset problem or has not fully settled yet, adr is 10-15%/hr, very very very less usage. moderate and heavy can go up to 20%

    Well, it is not that good for starters !
    Device runs Hot and not very good signal latching ( constant call drops and signal jumping) but does well with wifi connected. Device runs in the late 20's ( celcius) and while in use goes upto 38 degrees celcius.

    Nothing new to write about except the new you tube logo. BBM is 6.2.0.56.

    Will move to BL build today, can't take this anymore

    Does it impact battery consumption more compare to RC7B2? Although, I haven't tried RC8B1 but my experience with A1 and return2 has been high ADR (6-7%) on normal usage while RC7B2, it is around 3-4%. Should you still recommend to test RC8B1 or wait for your next release, probably with .794 codes.

    There is only one way to find out.......try it out
    I had tried 8a and it worked very well for me......i did a full wipe and factory reset before i loaded it on my device and did a selective restore.
    There are .755cods in 8b and if Sator says it is better it ought to be for sure !

    I feel you should give 8b a shot !

    IMO all BL ultimate builds from RC6 to RC 8B1 have similar ADR rates (+/- 1%), maybe you had a bad install Audio. RC8B1 is slightly better than RC8A1, your ADR depends on your usage patterns, 3rd apps installed, device settings (brightness, backlight time out etc.).

    Up and running on RC8B1

    Fast booting time from the off.

    Requested to update both BB Protect and BBID after install.

    Cool running, smooth and fast browser

    Battery or course is a wait and see.

    Thanks as always to Sator, the RC builds just seem to work better for me that Returns do.

    Bringon RC9 !!!

    +1 on RC working better for me than Returns.
    RC9....hmmm......BL has to work extra hard with the .794 OS ( it reminds me of .649), IMO .746 will be an upgrade to .794...lol
    Will be joining you soon on 8b

    Fat .714 for me.

    It is the "gold standard" .sfi for my 9900 until something that doesn't run hot comes along with a new OS.

    The same one for me, Legal but this time i thought about it for a couple of minutes. Ian had a run with .746 sfi with good results... But ive tryed different sfis to just return to the "Gold standard" as you well named it...
