    I have downloaded and installed the leaked OS and so far it's okay. There are a few problems with it however. I have noticed that my phone locks up or stalls much more frequently in the days since I installed it. I have also run into some problems with my Facebook application since the upgrade. Most have been resolved, but every now and then, I cannot respond to an FB update directly from my phone. I'm going to keep piloting this copy until the official release comes out. My wife and I have the same phone, so I'll be able to compare and contrast the two provided they are the same 5.0.0.656 version.
