    Think I'll give it a go too, what the heck. Just worried about this new radio img with Orange. Some seem to say it won't work at all, some say no problem, some even say DON'T FLASH ON ORANGE !!!!!

    Cheers Jaff. Tried flashing the new radio onto my Modaco3.2, but it asked for a network pin number. Wouldn't work anyway, back on the old one now.

    I like a lot!

    Seems very smooth and fast - a nice change from the nightmare 6.2 gave me.

    No issues as yet...

    Anybody had a problem with the keyboard no coming up? Full wipe to install V10 (Looks great, thanks guys much better than the ill fated 6.xx), all working well but when I am in an input field the keyboard stubbornly refuses to show.

    Sorry my bad, One last reboot fixed the problem, All good now thanks again for all the work:)

    Well I couldn't wait any longer for MoDaCo and as this supports apps2sd I thought I'd give it a go.
    There were a few things I had to sort out at first like Facebook and enabling paid market apps, but I have to say this ROM is such a huge leap forward for me. From the speed of bootup to the responsiveness of the UI, browser and scrolling, this is a dream. Everything is perfect now. MoDaco will have be something truly special for me to wipe again in the near future. This is definately a keeper!:):):)
