    I just downloaded and installed it. My S2 is booting up as I type. I'll let you know what I see. I'm hoping for better battery life most of all!

    Battery life is good too! I still think there is room for improvement, but it's not bad at all. There is an improvement over the .320 OS.

    Did you have any screen clicking issues before downloading? If so, are they fixed with this update?

    I am downloading as we speak.....

    Here's what I noticed so far in the last hour after booting it up, restoring backups, resending service books, *228, a few battery pulls,etc, etc,

    -Dim bug has been fixed in landscape mode
    -Blue glow is bigger on keyboards
    -Everything seems faster
    -Bottom buttons work when placed on flat surface (much more responsive)
    -Slight lag in typing
    -Popup keys when typing (Options>Screen/Keyboard/>Key Indicator)
    -Theme Management is better

    I'm going to check on home screen updates later (ie weatherbug-did not update on homescreen on official build)

    I'll post back with anything else I find.

    Also:

    needed to update Docs to Go to V.2.0 & BBM to .57 (didn't carry over)

    There is an "inbox" setting in messages. Click Messages>BB Menu>Options>Inbox Settings

    You can select what you want in your main message list (which emails, sms/mms)

    Good update, but sorry to say it did not fix my Talk/Send green key pressing. It still will not press, unless using the left hand and letting your thumb sit on the BB Menu key the pressing down on send.

    Wow, that is insane! I was just chatting on mirc about the button issue, and just about everyone on there said that .428 fixed their issues.

    You may actually have a bad Storm2!

    That sucks! I really wished the leaked OS would have fixed your issue.
