Leaked: OS 188.8.131.52 for Bold and Curve 8900!
In the world of CrackBerry I don't think there's any better way to start a new week than with a good OS leak (hey, I rhymed that real good). This time around it's the BlackBerry Bold and Curve 8900 getting some 5.0 love in the form of OS 184.108.40.206. The builds don't have RIM internal apps installed (quincy) so no worries there, but also do not have the 5.0 version of BlackBerry Messenger built-in and you'll find some of the RIM apps (App World) don't want to work. Otherwise, I've been finding the Bold build to be real nice. You'll want to watch our OS Beta forums for finds threads to pop up.
- This is an unofficial release. 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).
