got it and I LOVE IT!! Much faster/smoother transitions & phone, and Flick scrolling is much nicer! Camera is fast and the sound is much better as it does not sound muffled anymore as you turn up the volume. Boot up time is UNBELIEVABLY FAST!! The "3G" icon is no longer there instead its back to 1XEV so it doesn't look as cool. Device lock is much faster and on point and integrates well with Stormslider. All apps work great so far like Meterberry, Weatherbug, and Pandora which did not work with previous OS leak! Overall im very impressed BUT also upset that it took this long for RIM to make this happen when I'm already ready to jump aboard the Droid train!

Anyone have information on this "W.A.V.E." Movement with At&t. I thought it was funny when I heard about it but i'm not sure I know what it is exactly about to be making assumptions. Please enlighten us...!

Only drawback I have found is my Vlingo does not work and no 3G symbol instead the 1XEV. Other than that its the best build I have used, even better than the official.

How did I get -1? Why even have these ratings? Morons.
