    Thanks for this! One point: on my copy of Odin it said PDA not CODE. Put the file under PDA and it worked fine.

    Generally a nice update, with some nice functionality and worthwhile speed improvements. Jury is still out on battery consumption.

        So far it seems to be eating battery.. completely dead by the end of the day, where before it was still a third to half charged. And I’m getting performance issues and crashes occasionally – especially the camera app.

        Some great features, though. Keen to see if the problems are addressed in the final release.

    I did this update, but I must say that there is something still missing. This is not stable. The moment we try to type something for instance in the SMS compose screen, it just goes blank and returns back to the home screen. I think this is to do when the keyboard is used!
