    I was running 4.7.0.78 on the storm. It wasn’t a proper OS, the programs were lagged, the screen refreshes from landscape to portrait took a lot of time. I had to employ the battery pull about 3 times a day and I was getting all fed up with the device. I downloaded the 4.7.0.151 and it has sped up the storm and removed much of its lag. I found the following changes worthwhile to mention:

    1. The phone seems quite responsive.
    2. The programs start and stop faster.
    3. The phone boots quicker.
    4. The camera takes the snap instantly. For storm users this is a major relief since the camera used to take the snap about 5 seconds after you clicked it. Most of the times, the subject of the picture would move and you would get a completely different snap than what you had intended. 151 version corrects this …Yippie!
    5. Typing on storm takes a bit of a practice for old bb users. It was a nightmare to make corrections, additions in an existing sentence. In this new version, there is a new weird panel sort of thing that shows up while making corrections or editing and it makes the whole exercise pretty simple.

    How I upgraded:

    1. Read 101 on crackberry regarding upgrade via Apploader.exe
    2. Followed the instructions in the above article.

    After the upgrade I found my emails were not saved and I lost them. I have a back up on gmail so nothing to worry about there. Contacts, data, SMS, et all were saved. All applications were installed. I just had to re-activate all the paid applications that require activation.
