    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.

    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.

    People who have a very slow GPS, download GPS Status and go to Menu > Tools and delete / redownload the A-GPS data.

    I've been running the new version for a couple of weeks now and there's absolutely no difference in battery life.

    I had das bamf 1.6.1 but i kept locking up. So I went to virus rom for a bit. I do like the look and feel of das bamf 1.6.1.

    like I said, I thought the new kernels played a larger part in that. But I can say with absolute certainty that my phone runs much better than it did 2 weeks ago, wherever the credit goes

    sorry to hear that man, it runs amazing for me. Guess they need to work out some kinks for it to be friendly for the majority of devices. You try it with a different kernel?
