I was running into some issues with so that's the only reason I decided to try 5.0.7. So, after a long download over 3G, I upgraded (without wiping the cache).

I agree with the poster above that it seems much faster than I'm running comfortably at 600 MHZ and don't have an overclocking kernel loaded right now.

In, when I streamed pandora or last.fm, the connection would drop after a certain amount of time. Then, the phone would immediately reset. At work, I'm on the fringe of 3G and 1X service, so that probably didn't help.

In any case, things seem to be working much more nicely in 5.0.7. I've been streaming all morning without incident whereas in the prior version, I was reseting after 15-20 minutes. Now, the connection drops are just drops in connectivity and not linked to a reset.

Overall I'm very pleased with the 2 hours I've been using 5.0.7

It could also because they disabled V8

Heres the Launcher Pro. Its an app in the market, Fab just themed it. Looks much better to me. Has the zoom out feature from HTC Sense.

Launcher Pro looks like Helix Launcher.

What's the difference? Also, I can't figure out how to get Helix Launcher to show up. Just default.

Long story short, its similar. In my opinion its way way smoother. You can't customize the four icons yet, but I use all of them. Plus the zoom out feature, I like that as well.

As far as getting Helix to show up, are you using what's preinstalled or did you install Helix?
