Leaked: OS For The BlackBerry Storm 2 9520

Leaked: OS For The BlackBerry Storm2 9520

The dry spell for BlackBerry Storm2 owners is over. OS has leaked online and is downloadable for all. Grab your cables and fire up apploader or desktop manager to get started. Remeber folks it's a leak, not currently an official OS, take caution. Disclaimers apply as always. Now, where is that Tour, Bold 9000 and 8900 leak?

*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).

Leaked: OS For The BlackBerry Storm 2 9520


Dry spell? Are you kidding me? The god damn Tour has been out since July and we've only seen one decent 5.0 leak...oh you poor 9700, 9550, and 85xx owners...I feel so sorry for you when you only manage to get a new leak every week...


Man, I dont mean to sound bitter-Im super stoked for you Storm 2 owners-but how long do we Tour users have to wait for a decent leaked 5.0 OS? I get these blog posts as a tweet (directly to my handset) so I see how all the other devices are getting leaks left and right, but we Tour owners are left out in the cold. The latest leaked 5.0 OS for the Tour is go awful (not a real option) and hybrids suck, so most of us are still on 4.7. Still waiting...

LOL, it's not funny since i have a Bold 9000 but that made me LOL. :)

It's ok guys, our turn will come soon. Happy for S2 owners now :)

Dry spell is over? Not for the 9550 owners! the 9520 owners have had two leaks and an official release, but nothing for the 9550. Come on with the leaks!!

Verizon rep told me Official OS Update December 16th for Storm 2 9550...she said this a couple weeks ago and said she just got information that there will be an update but she didn't know what version...hope she was right!

no love for 9550?
two OS's for 9520 in one day???
i mean.. .320 is good... but i wanna play with some leaks!!

My Storm2 rebooted on its own this morning and went to a white screen with a hard to read erro that was something like "xxx error 529". After 4 battery pulls it still boots to this screen. I can't us it at all and have not mad eit in time to hit Verizon. My Storm1, I had 3 within the first 40 days of ownership so convinced them to give me a Storm2. So, now Im 2 days over my 30 day no hassle period and a device that doesn't work. Here we go again........

So, what does this leak bring?

you said you try to go to verizon?
so i'm assuming you have the 9550...
this leak is for 9520... did you install the full version? if you want this leak on your 9550... you have to use only the files in the java folder..

were the hell is the storm 2 9550 leaked os. this is bull crap. i want my home screen fixed and i want it now.

I have tried SEVERAL times. Yes, I deleted the vendor.xml file. I have tried Desktop manager and Loader but no luck.
I just keep getting the message "no software for this device is installed on the PC" or something like that.

Any advice?


I just install this OS on my 9520 and I only have to say, is FANTASTIC!!! with this update you get the Show Key indicator,that means, when you are typing you can see a pop-up indicating the letter that you press, like iphone does.

But if you want activate this future you have to go to Options, Screen/Keyboard and there you can find it.

If you have problems to install this Leak, just uninstall all your previus OS on your pc, then install BBSAK (last update), install the OS wanted, connect your device and run BBSAK, click on Load OS and this will runs Apploader.exe, in this point follow the assistant to get the update.

Good luck!

I have the latest version of BBSAK and tried that also.

Where does Desktop Manager put OS versions that5 it downloads over the web? It keeps trying to force me to OS .306

That worked!!! And for the first time I now have voice working on T-mobile

This is a great version

Whoever you are, EVEN RIM couldn't help me, but you did!!!


I am glad to hear that you have been sucessfull to install this OS with this procedure.

This will be useful for many people.


Gonna sound daft here, what is the vendor xml file, and how exactly do you delete it?????

Downloading the update now, hopefullit works now!
