    BBv0.5 is working pretty sweet and I'm getting better battery life than with BB0.4 (which somehow decreased my battery life by quite a bit).

    But twice now after reinstalling the home and search buttons have stopped working in the OS, but still work in some apps and still vibrate on press.

    Yes I have installed from scratch, and am using the updated v0.5. And they were working, but stopped after a reboot. At least, that is when I noticed it.

    Anyone else having these issues?

    I had that problem. Ended up I had a bad download of the rom or my theme (I am still not sure which). I downloaded fresh files of each and reinstalled.

    My search button is also DOA with BB 0.5. Home button works fine for me, thankfully. But the primary function of the search button does not work on the home screen. Still brings up the search menu when I try it in my music app, though. The secondary function also works on the main screen. When I hold the search button down, I get my usual popup menu for Handcent quick compose or Voice Search.

    I have actually downloaded the file twice, both from Pete's post. The first time it was the original, second time the updated one. The updated one is only to fix the problem with the search button I think.

    After the install and rebooting I did not touch my phone until it rebooted. Also both times the log showed success.

    I had an issue with this also. I had accidently touched my phone before it restarted because I had stopped paying attention to it and thought it has already rebooted. I restored back to a backed up version of bb v.4, and Wiped, and reinstalled. Fixed the problem with the home screen button. However the search button still didn't work correctly. The fix for the search button can be found in the following thread: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/bugless/83116-search-key-fix-inside.html
