    Hopefully this update stops my phone from deleting all of my text messages every few weeks. Twice now I've woken up to an empty message box.

    I've had software version 1.13.605.7 for a few weeks now and it does for the most part fix the issues.

    Jcase brought those files to us weeks ago. My thunderbolt ran great without it and also runs great with it. Battery life is better, but I think kernel evolution plays a large part in that

    X2. Though I think the biggest improvement to my phone was running a rooted Rom and custom kernel.
