What a week for BlackBerry OS 5.0. On Monday we brought you a video sneak peak of 5.0 (app version 126.96.36.199) running on a BlackBerry Curve 8900. A few days later, OS 5.0 leaks for the BlackBerry Bold 9000 (Michael just gave it a nice screen cap walk through). Now OS 188.8.131.52 has been found online for the BlackBerry Curve 8900 (big thanks to sliderz for sending in the link). It's going to be nice to see 5.0 get rolled out.
*OS Disclaimer - Please Read: Keep in mind this is NOT an official release and as such is not supported by RIM or your Carrier. If you choose to install, do so at your own risk and only if you're comfortable in the process of upgrading and downgrading your device software. It is quite normal during operating system development for certain features to be crippled or disabled while others are tested, and these beta builds often reflect that. They are not always better. Depending on your BlackBerry comfort level, it may be best for you to wait for community feedback on a build before deciding to download and install for yourself or simply wait for the next official release. If you require support, you will find it in our CrackBerry forums via our extremely knowledgeable community base - do not contact your carrier or RIM for Beta OS technical support (their first course of action will be to advise you to downgrade to a supported OS). Follow the links below for more information and instructions. *
