I finally got it working. Seems good. The browser is better for sure. I guess I don't really need my Empower anymore.
My phone will now connect to my N Router. The old OS would just reboot over and over. That alone is worth the upgrade to me.

Did anyone get a 507 error screen after upgrading to this? I got one and a battery pull didn't work so I had to do this to downgrade:

the connecting to device is taking for ever!!

It's normal to take a long time. That's why I upgraded my 8100 and 8120 separately so I wouldn't have to wait forever for them to connect and initialize.

BTW - This OS version still have memory leaks. But it's def. not that bad.

8100 with new os camera dark settings do not have any change

There aren't that many changes to the 8100. I noticed that also. Most of the noticeable changes happened on my 8120 (ICQ, new fonts, new unlockable themes, HTML email, etc.). I'm happy now LOL
I still would like to see the following:
Trash Can Icon or Folder
New BB Browser (I don't like having to go back and forth between Page View and Column View)
MySpace Launcher Icon
1GB Device Memory
3 MP or better camera

phatmanxxl...have you set your service to wi-fi prefered? and are there a lot of other wi-fi signals in your area? those could be causing interference but a easy fix is to change your routers broadcast channel...hope this helps

Must say this os is really good
1. Html Email
2. updated web Browser
3. NO BUGS...IE .37
4. Phone seems like its running alot smoother

What is the difference in the web browser? I still can't tell. It looks the same to me.
