I tried .234 for 2 days....was sluggish, got the turning clock quite a bit and the browser seemed slow.
and HORRENDOUS battery life. After a 45 minute phone call and a full charge I was down to 50%.
I tried a reflash and tried it for another day....same results.
Sucky battery life, overlapping text on the theme and all around sluggishness had me going back to .210.
I know everyone has different results depending on their handset but I've tried .216, .228 and .234...and I keep coming back to .210.

228 has been my "210"-rock solid

I haven't had any issues (knock on wood) with .234, but I am watching the battery life. I also seem to recall that phone calls drained the battery more than .210, but with the irregularity of my calls, it's hard to make an accurate observation.

What is the advantage of doing a clean wipe before installing a new OS?

There isn't any.

Just did a battery pull and timed how long it took to reboot with .234

.228 has been rock solid for me too. Better than .210 on my Bold

Finally got .234 loaded up on my Bold. I'll give it a full charge tonight and see how things go from here. This is fun.
Thanks to my 'Berry, I'm only an e-mail away.
Or you could just go see me at myspace.com/quillhill

The BOLD is only 4.6.
02-10-2009, 08:33 AM
so will 4.6 work more efficient? and what device is the 4.7 for?
02-10-2009, 08:51 AM
4.7 is for the storm. There are many versions of 4.6 for the BOLD. A lot of folks here have found adequate stability with .210.

Ah... ok just because I see others saying you should do a clean wipe before installing a new OS.... I have just been installing the new OS over my old one through DM and don't have any problems, but I thought it may improve performance somehow...
