The heat issue is much better with beyondwind's patch, no doubt. I've ordered a new adapter, just in case this is contributing to the issue. I will eventually restore the 480gb v5.5 again, but i think the battery issue is contributing, too. I ordered four 900mah thin batteries and four 850mah thick and four 1350 mah thick from Amazon. The 1350mah were crap - would not sustain a charge for more than a couple of hours with the mSata pods. i had a similar problem with the 900mah thin batteries last night with the Terapod. Lots of heat is generated and the battery discharges very quickly.
The BP4 mSata is by far the coolest running chip compared to the Crucial 240g or 480g. I've been running the BP4 for almost a month now. Heavy use requires daily charging.
The Crucial 480g heats up and discharges whenever i update the database.
