Oh right, didn't see that. .464 gives great battery life and memory management. A bit slow on the bootup however.

.238 was the best until .554 came along. Everything in between and after so far have had horrible memory problems or other severe issues.

OS 4.6 is the best for me. Device works as advertised, is not broken, does not require fixing.

I've tried all official and leaked versions and .554 s the best so far.
I miss the A + Call unlock feature though.

I have tried pretty much all of the 4.6's and 5.0's and most hybrids.

I just downgraded this weekend to .411, for the following reasons:

- Quickpull Pro scheduled reboots work

- IM+ does not have display issues

- slowest memory leak (IMO)

- acceptable available device memory (not the best, but not as bad as the lastest OS's)

- older keylock w/User Info preferred

- all apps I have work with no issues (46 third party apps installed)

Not taken into consideration: call quality (I don't make that many calls), SMS issues (I don't send that many text messages), bootup time (I reboot while asleep for the most part), browser speed (I do browse but not constantly).

Which version of 4.6?

I would like to downgrade to 4.6 as 5.0 seems a tad buggy for my liking. I also really miss the A key lock feature.

Once I find something that will give me threaded SMS like the 5.0 OS, I am switching back to 4.6.
