I am running it (238)!

I briked my berry...forgot to remove the vendor file.....so I am still trying to bring it back to normality.

The new 5.0 is quick!!! Evne browsing at verly low signals strength of 1 bar (-108dB) I can load pages rather quick. I had upgraded to any previous 5.0, so here Is what I see:

- Picture browsing rocks!!!!
- Signal strength, slight boost from 4.6
- OS is much faster (but it could be due to the fact that I am running light on APPS. will confirm later.)
- Battery consumption.....can't tell yet, but does not seem to be any better, if not worst than what it was with 4.6
- Audio Postcard app...cool!!! you can send an "audio postcard"
- Visual VM - I have not been able to configure this yet...
- Sync with T-Mobile all contacts....I have not been able to configure this yet...
- BB Messenger is 4.7, but it's very nice...looking forward to 5.0
- Profile Management is greatly improved
- Media Management is also greatly improved

That's it so far ..it's only been a few hrs....will update later today

I'll confirm it for you, Carlosrey23: 5.0.0.238 on the 8900 is indeed more responsive all around than .190.

Too bad I can't find it anywhere!

EDIT: Nevermind! I spoke too soon. Found it
