    4.5 Running On My Pearl (8100)

    Advertisement



    so far its been nice. all of the programs i was running with 4.2 work with the exception of softreset and colorpearl. i love the option of being able to watch youtube videos, albeit a little slow and bad in quality. some of my videos that worked with 4.2 dont work with 4.5 though. it probably has to do with how i encoded the vids. anyway, here are some screenshots:

    install was clean, with no real issues, although moving around just after is a bit sluggish.

    being able to load the various chat apps via the AppLoader is keen (although t-mo still disallows Windows Live Messenger). most features seem very similar to 4.3 but i've only had this up for a few hours so it's too early to say. some cosmetic differences on Media, but the A2DP for audio still rocks (or jazzes, or pops, or classicals if you so wish) and no, no A2DP for video. best improvement over 4.3 is that my camera snaps again!


    two quick questions for other 4.5 users:

    1. does the BB Clarity font appear different to you? mine seems to be a bit stringy, and blocky even with font smoothing set to "Yes".

    2. anyone using Empower? it may not be ready for 4.5 yet, as it seems to work, showing "More Available" and "Receiving More", but then displays no content - no words or images, just the header/body color schemes. (using empower 3.0.68.7)


    will take notes and post what i think needs mention.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    one other fairly major issue I forgot to mention - the calendar will not allow viewing or editing of events.

    have tried this for events synched from outlook as well as new events created on the handset. swapped which email acct was primary on the calendar and no joy. unable to delete imported events, but can do so with the manually-created events.

    so with this, unless i'm missing some pretty crucial setting, the OS in my profile is definitely not final.

    update!

    now operating 4.5.0.18 - hooray!
    • the BBClarity font appears proper again
    • Empower operates as it should (although the app states 3.0.66.7 while the download shows as 3.0.68.7)
    • the calendar bug is still present, no viewing or editing events, although i can now delete them
    and good news, or somewhat promising news, is the Media Player seems much more forgiving and can handle more video formats without conversion. have played an .mp4 and .mov file with quite decent to very good playback. haven't sat down to really test it out, but plan to do so this weekend.

    I still cannot sync my phone with Outlook. I am running 4.5 OS version .18 and using DM 4.3.

    Anyone else experience this? If so what is the solution?
