I am batting 1,000 right now. Have updated 3 times and all have been problem free. I followed instructions to the tee, thanks to Guru's for posting some great instructions. I am sorry that many have had problems, but also happy when the prompt came up, "Upgrade Now" and I said NO. I had already uninstalled my theme, went to Preware and did an EPR, then went back again so see if anything showed up. Then nervously did the upgrade, went pretty quick (15 minutes). Then did 2 resets, removed my battery and then another reset and no problems. I do see some speed improvements, not sure if it's real or just hoped for?
I think one of the apps (Battery Saver) I use saved the day. I use it to turn the phone off from 10pm to 6am each morning. When the update came out maybe my Pre would have gone into auto update mode and I would be hosed. Battery Saver maybe saved me, got the update message at about 11am and see above.
I hoped 1.3.5 wouldn't be more than it was and did not buy the release at CES. I think the CES announcement will be big, hopefully of things to come soon. I am fortunate to have no slider problems, Sprint gave me a Airave and have had no problems with updates with a highly modded phone. Thanks to Palm, Sprint and the wonderful people on this forum for making this a wonderful experience in my case.
Happy New Year's to all of you and hope the future has more pleasant experiences like I have had.
