    Why should i upgrade from BB 7.5 to newest?

    Hi guys,

    I just don't see the huge benefit. Im running BB 7.5 -- pretty happy, OC'ed to 950 i think. Are there any benefits to upgrading at this time?

    Live wallpapers, some other crap basically. If you're happy just continue to be happy.

    If you don't see a need, then don't do it.

    My top reasons:
    1. Much snappier!
    2. Greatly improved battery life!

    Its by far the fastest most stable rom out there. You would be stupid not to upgrade to it.

    Live wallpapers are just the icing...and anyone who tells you that is the only benefit has not tried a ESE53 base ROM. Amazing improvement in speed and battery life BEFORE overclocking! And as previously stated extremely stable.

    Live wallpapers is cool though...I always thought they were a waste...but love the neural network...and it has not slowed down the phone at all!
    Current Phone- Rezound...unlocked and perm-rooted!

    It's WAY faster and the battery lasts longer. You will be amazed by how much faster it is. You don't really have to overclock when using Pete's 2.1 ROM.

    Hey what's up....Yeah I used to think the live wallpapers were a waste too(over-rated), until I found starfield...Have you heard of this? maybe you have...search for it in the market if not...it's wonderful.

    i havent went to any 2.1 roms with the latest builds cause from what i read there arent very many MM themes that are compatable. sounds like you can make a MM theme work with some tweeking with the framework-res.apk but......
