so far so good. love app monitor, u can star emails. brightness saves on the settings u select. sorry tmobiles version wouldnt. also seems like my screen is brighter even at 10 or could just be me. me liking it big time

but this is all on at least my 7.1s before ;)

When it's brighter at 10, it does not mean it is more efficient with your battery ;)

using 7.1.0.569 and it's running very good.
1% idle drain, heaven!

I've been sticking with .569 too. When I tried .649 I couldn't add words to the word substitution dictionary, so I rolled back because I like that functionality.

Hell yeah ! Boot up time seems to be much better ! Looks like this software is more responsive! Hopefully my musicplayer problems wil be solved! Keep it up RIMMMMM!!!!

What was wrong with your music player? I've got a Bold 9900 as well and I got this really annoying screeching kind of sound if I ever paused then played a song. Is that the same problem you had?

Well, looks like it's solved.!! When i was listening to my music ,it got stuck a lot. I could see the time running but no sound came out of the speaker. Also i could not go to another song because it freezed when i tried to go out of my music player. When i just pushed the 'red'phone on/of button sometimes it went on fine again. But most of the times it needed a Bpull...for now ,after 3 hours of music it did not get stuck...so seems fine for now.
It really feels ...flowish :p haha ! Fast and responsive !

...and still no mention of the O2 UK update that I successfully installed into my fabulous 9900 already on Sunday last week... never mind....:-/

Is there a point in putting this OS on your device if you've already upgraded to the unnoficial release of .714, would the upgrade even register in the desktop manager? My experience with .714 has been awesome so far though (leaked release obviously)

Just updating my 9900 now (Ireland) and hoping functions like wi-fi calling will be unblocked by my carrier (Vodafone) but I know it's not likely to happen...

I have installed 714 though Vodafone UK, all are OK but Device Analyzer Application is missing whereas in the list of applications on BB Desktop Manager it show installed. Pl help me where I find it in my device 9900.

Ok! This is weird! After installing this OS, My DM doesn't recognize it...even when I try to use app loader doesn't work, & even BBSAK :s what could be wrong & how can solve it
