Leaked: BlackBerry Storm 9530 OS 5.0.0.230

Just over a week ago a hybrid version (homemade installer) of OS 5.0.0.230 for the BlackBerry Storm 9530 surfaced. Due to the non-standard installation method we decided to leave it off the blogs and just leave it in the forums for the hardcore crackies to play with. Now that an actual version of OS 5.0.0.230 has leaked for the BlackBerry Storm 9530 (standard installation method), it's good to go. There's lots to read about 5.0.0.230 for the 9530 in the forums, so follow the links below and get your OS on!

*OS Disclaimer - 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). Follow the links below for more information and instructions. *

lovemybbm

i have a question....how do i download it to my mac...all it says after downloading "stuffit expander" the program that is running the compressed downloaded file wont allow me to open it!

help!?

tbdaly#CB

Can i get an official release? I'm a bit skeptical to try my luck with the leaked releases after nuking a berry already...lol

JRSCCivic98

Still not signed... :p ;)

alicklee

thanks for leaking this goin to try it now and let you know

cnick6

Kevin, can you investigate a workaround for the "active subscriber" problem? Apparently you can't upgrade to OS 5.0 w/o a valid (active) BiS account.

gopowercat

I'm having this same issue but I do have an active (valid) BIS account.

Any suggestions anyone?

millerd79#CB

please I am begging for a Bold leak!

skygear

i'm lookin for the same thing

aperture_disaster

I've been refreshing in hopes this would pop up today. im already on the .230 but im gonna see if this fixes some little flaws ive found.

dweasel36

downloadin as we speak...errr type.lol

WaterlooGuy

I've been checking all day as well to see if it would come up! Thanks!

RoxyGr52884

This might be a stupid question, but, I'm still going to ask. Could I possibly use this for my Tour, or no?

Thx.

Makisupa

Already running the 'hybrid' and I love it, so this is a no-brainer.

lector

please give us the 8900 leak.
we want it so bad!
its raining os 5 leaks today

Does everything work on this leaked OS?

bb-rookie

Ive been on .167 for a few weeks now and loved it! But I just downloaded this and it is a keeper! I just have to figure out how to get BBM 5.0 on it. I know theres a way just have to find the link. I say GO FOR IT!!!

galouchee

Thanks Kevin, it's already installed on my phone:P we'll see how it's running!

galouchee

You'll not be able to find BBM 5.0 working on this OS, we have to wait for a BBM leak, hope this is not far away!:P

LOUISCALDERON

download the .230 v and it works fine with BB 5.0...AWESOME!!!!

Lynette1977

Does anyone want to post a version that will work with the new Mac BB Desktop?

Dankees

When I got the leaked OS last week, it didn't work with BBM 5.0. Does this one?

grundyman

it does , what i noticed i had to delet the vendor forlder and disconect from the internet , thats when it installed for me

Dankees

Can you please write out a few steps so that I can get OS 5.0 working, with BBM 5.0? Please?

grundyman

im istalling now , does anyone know if it has flick scroll now?

grundyman

thanks beloved, just finished about an hour ago and everyone is calling me, im free now , now im gonna play with it.

mrlamotte87

Can I put this on my BB if im running the .148? or do I have to download I later version to upgrade through?

BigDog353

Spent the better part of the last week stressing out over whether or not to install the hybrid .230 or not. This morning while at work, I said "What the Hay! Why not. " and proceeded to brick my Storm twice. I was finally successful at approx 7:46 pm EDT. Then imagine my pleasure and surprise(sarcasm) when I open up CB and see that there is an OFFICIAL LEAK! Thanks Kevin( little bit of Sarcasm, OK a LOT)

ten_bucks_and_a_frisbee

What's the difference between this one and the hybrid(.230+.191)? Sorry if its a stupid question...

sechler

Works great. Had a flawless install. Right now seems to run just like the hybrid (.230 +.191) but my app and ram memory sitting higher at 35.2 MB.

Yngpapii916

Does anyone have the leaked software save & able to send of the 5.0.0.230 for the new Tour 9630 ?? the leaked links online have either expired or are not downloading correctly. If you have it please let me know or could you send it to yngpapii916@gmail.com (subject: Tour 5.0.0.230 OS) Thanks!

simek20

Is there any point in installing this OS .230 if I already installed the previous .230 over .191? Is there any difference between these two OS's besides installation ease?

aaw1944

When will Verizon release the 5.0 firmware officially?

beloved1228

Does have flick scroll... interesting under the Connection it has the BB symbol and 3G or whatever your connected to... Also has threaded messaging... icons look sleeker... seems faster transition and web

igor6241

does this work with 3rd party apps such as quicklaunch, ubertwitter, googlevoice, score mobile, etc..?

shawnyp123

will apps work like quicklaunch and buzzme

sechler

I know quicklaunch works, I don't know about buzzme I don't have that app, I use berrybuzz and thats working.

grundyman

i noticed that the screen goes black when i put it to my ear when making a call and i cant push the buttons, why didnt they think of this from day one? storm slider has to go

devinfowlkes15#CB

Do the camera work because on the last one mine didnt

sechler

Camera was working great after this install.

casperkaroff

Some things I noticed between the Leaked Version vs the Hybrid Version is the extra 4mb after boot up and the inclusion of the CityID application shown in the 9550 information given by Kevin.

Also, I don't what BBM version came in the Hybrid as I used Shrink-a-OS to remove it since I thought it might be the 5.0.0.8 version and didn't want to have to uninstall and then install the version. But for those that will probably still ask, the Leaked Version comes with 4.7 and 5.0 still doesn't work!

WeatherBug Elite still no go! :-(

moosc

ive been running wb elite the only thing wrong is no icon on screen. i can live with out it. but every thing else works fin.. quicklaunch has worked for a while.. meterberry doesnt work.. still wish i can meterberry with out quick pull.. just noticed with wb elite there is archived symbol pretty cool.

anthonylonas

NICE! cant see how its the actual one, someone's getting fired! lol

Dankees

So, is there a way to get BBM 5.0 working with this OS?

Anyone figure out how to do it?

beloved1228

I got 4.7 to work but cant get 5.0.... can anyone? any help?

ahart019

No doubt about it, this is what the storm should have been. The flick scrolling, transition speeds, speed in general, threaded sms, memory improvements. Just awesome. And the little things like every time i press the screen in an area the command works. In previous OSs it was not as accurate. I know I couldnt go back. Some very slight screen glitches from time to time but they are really not a huge issue at all. Like a I said, its a must download!

BBERRY-STORM

Improved speed!, chat style messaging!, screens flow in and out seemlessly, doesn't lag, Very Impressive Update! I have 1 problem my browser won't connect to the internet, pandora works, v cast song id works, bbm works, brower won't connect. Anyone else have this problem?

dweasel36

holy crappinski, this thing is sweet,i was afraid to download it till it came straight from kevin....thanks kev.
i cannot describe it even, take the jump and do it. dont wait for the official,this is it.

apopcalip

Im downloading... but... does the browser works???

BTW, what about wlm, facebook, bbm 5.0, ubertwitter, googlemaps, berrybuzz and quickpull

sechler

I know browser, facebook, berrybuzz, and BBM 4.7. Quickpull looks like it wants to work but then you get an error and it is terminated. Thats all I am running right now.

jvcvem2003

anyone getting this message? this upgrade seems to work for me so far. my storm is unlocked and am using on Tmobile network. This message i get when trying to make a call. anyone know why? so basically, most of my storm works on this OS but i cant make calls!!! any help?

uknow85

I CAN NOT EVEN BELIEVE HOW THIS UPDATE JUST MADE MY BLACKBERRY STORM THAT MUCH BETTER I MEAN IT IS AWESOME NOW FASTER MEDIA PLAYER WORKS BETTER IT FEELS SMOOTH QUICK RESPONSIVE I LOVE IT ITS LIKE ONE SMALL UPDATE AWAY FROM BEING PERFECT

sumthinkrazy

Downloaded and am running the .230. It is very responsive and havent found any flaws. The camera works without shutting off. Amazing. BMM works too. I highly recommend it

jvcvem2003

any one know a fix? I have a 9530 on Tmobile. I DL this new update and love it. But cant call out. I get the message "No Circut/ No Channel Available" can some one please help? anything i need to tweak? settings files?
you can email me jvcvlr2003@gmail.com
Thanks!
Cliff

harveyjc_2001

I have the same exact issue with a 9500 on T-Mobile, also running .230. Data works fine, but no phone calls. I was going to drop by the store today to try a SIM swapout, but I have little hope that this will work.

pixleateit

my bbm is missing. how do i retrieve it?

twinston007

Hey all i just installed my old bbm it was 5.0 but for 4.7 os and it works fine love the flick scroll browser is faster than before thx crackberry

carl1028

My desktop manager does not see the new OS....I've done everything...I've uninstalled previous versions, rebooted, etc.....Please help....

Thx

omgtek

uninstall it again.
go to your controll pannel
add/remove programs
remove all the rim related stuff like previous OS's, etc.

then reinstall DM 5.
before running that app
install the .230 update.
then from there you should be good to go.

reddet

I exp the same issue, my solution listed below:

Remove all installed BB OS's the computer.

Navigate to c:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in motion\Shared\Loader Files and delete all folders in that directory.

Install new OS and proceed to success.

-Cheers

carl1028

Yes, I am running Desktop manager 5

christiankim83

I had korean keyboard on 4.7.148 but once I loaded 5.0.0.230 its gone! How can I get korean font on this new os? Pls help

wig2ish

Getting the following message at the download site -
'Unfortunately, the link you have clicked is not available.'

heavensent58#CB

Is there any possible way to install this off my MAC with the BDM for mac leak ?

bajwadimpy

Can somebody give the link for actual release of .230

cellphoneking82

I just did the install and it works great but I keep getting Data errors. My edge keeps going from EDGE to edge. In addition, when I go into the App World application, it gives me an error that says that its having trouble connecting to the server, verify your network connection. My e-mail and web surfing seem to be fine with the exception of the edge ping pong. Is this happening to anyone else? Please someone help. Thanks

dariuscuh

A must have OS, sweet everything is there =)

dariuscuh

dude... that's why u shouldnt hack it or whatever u did. i got verizon so perfect OS for a well kinda perfect storm.. hmmm... lets see how the storm 2 hold out.

nsalony

the link doesn't take me there. did something change

raelssur

The download is no longer there

DonkeyButtox

aww dang need a new download link...

pktchunk#CB

So, I'm pretty new to all of this stuff (just downgraded my OS and upgraded it to try to fix a memory leak for the first time last night). But, if this is a leak version, when should we expect to see the non-leak version pushed by BlackBerry? I don't trust myself to do the non-official version. Especially with the lengthy disclaimer at the bottom of the post.

Thanks!

sgtslayer321#CB

hey sorry i'm new to this so I don't really know what i'm doing but can you download this straight to your storm or do you have to put it on your pc first and then send it over cause I clicked on the link from my storm and it started a download page I don't know if this is a waist of time

sgoodwin3

I just installed the new OS and its great but my BBM is gone. I had previously downloaded BBM 5.0. I have tried to download the official BBM from blackberry.com but its not compatible, can anybody help point me in the direction of a BBM that will work???

beloved1228

BBM 4.7 works on it... No BBM 5.0 (2.5) yet

fizixbuf

Does anyone know if the new Opera Mini browser 5 will work on this new OS?

xGLAM0UR0USx

It's AMAZINGLY fast. Chat-like messaging. But, I can't get BerryBuzz to work and I also can't find my Blackberry Apps button. If anyone knows how to retrieve these, let me know!

Pureinsanity212

They recently updated BB App World to support 5.0. Just go to blackberry.com/appworld/download from your phone's browser and download the latest version to make it work.

homatos

Anyone having problems getting smrtguard to restore data correctly?

I have tried several times to restore my contacts and the minute it gets to the fourth contact it stops. Any ideas?

vykacet

A couple users have asked already but no one has gotten answers. Is there any way to install this puppy using the new Mac desktop software? Damned EXE files don't work on our poor Macintosh computers =[

heavensent58#CB

Any way to install with the MAC DTM ?

vykacet

no one will answer this. they're scared us mac users will rise up and rule the world ;]

ctiffen

Unfortunately no... There is no way to do it on Mac's yet...

I have Windows installed via bootcamp on my MacBook Pro, and it works perfectly fine. :)

j916

yes it does work perfectly!!!

theaustins513#CB

I experienced a memory leak with the Opera Mini 5 beta browser. With the OM 5 installed my memory would drop from 40 mb at start to 35 mb after 15-20 minutes and continue to drop about 5 mb's every 20 minutes or so. I never let it get below 25 mb's before I would do a battery pull. Without the browser installed I've been holding at 39 - 40 mb's since start up two days ago!

ahmedh2001

OK guys Im reading this and im so excited to upgrade but answer a few questions for me:

1. does it work with custom themes
2. does the browser work?
3. does quickpull work
4. are there sms and email audio alert issues?
5. do i have to delete/uninstall any vendor files that wont send stats back to RIM
6. besides camera improvements which I see, anything else better?

again im on verizon storm 9530, service and function might be different when compared to, say an unlocked tmobile storm (diff network and coverage, etc...)

thats all for now, Ill download and wait for your responses soon!

Thanks crackberry users!

ugotme

Well the last 5.0 did not go well but this release seems good so far. I am using a original release storm. I did a full backup of my storm prior to loading this upgrade. The software loaded fine but i had to restore my information from the backup i created. once i did that as far as i can tell i got all my contacts back. my bbm stayed at 4.7 so that was good. I had to navagate to blackberry and to get the app world back on my phone. I also had to reload facebook. once that was done everything seems to be back normal. I am noticeing alot of changes for the good. scrolling is better and transitions are good. also now when you look at applications you can see the native and the 3rd party seperate (i like that). memory seems fine still little early to tell for sure. so as for me the upgrade went well. I will try to send another update when I have more time to play with the update.

AUllah

I uploaded hybrid on my phone yesterday,
and i have .230 working Smooooooooooooooooooooooth .

Should i upload this one ?

or is this one same as the hybird

BBrutto

Has anyone gotten quikpull or a BBM to work on this leak? I cant seem to get BBM for 5.0 or 4.7 Storm to work? Any suggestions?

Upstreammiami

why do people say this os is the best.... when most apps dont work.. bbm5.0 don't work... i mean come on guys... your gonna waste newbies time to do an upgrade for nutting... best OS is lyricidal beta7v2b ...... period!

ebongo91

they fund it to be the best becuase it is really fast and more responsive (finger-friendly). And the only glitches are really minor (it automatically scrolls to the bottom sometimes). If they can get by with the apps that work, I think it is the best OS for the storm RIM has made.

groovedaddy24

Works fine for me.... It wasn't there with the install, but i just downloaded it and works perfectly fine.

paulmac

Only issues I found so far has been had to re-install BBM, downgrade from 5.0. And Berryweather does not "update" correctly. Berryweather being a third party app will be corrected once the developer catches up to the new OS. Other than that everything seems to work great. I also note sounds are much louder and clearer.

BBrutto

Keep getting Error 404 when trying to open Application Center as well.

ddegraff

Same here...any ways to get this back up and working? This is the only thing I can't get to work.

joedirt2217

Does anyone know if Weather Bug works on this version. I installed the hybrid a week or two ago and Weather Bug and camera did not work.

lorac32

downloaded .230 last night n wow!! totally feels like a got a new storm :) the SMS style is different. I like it. Yes, we don't get the new bbm but its okay. Totally worth with more memory, faster web surfing. oh but your 3rd party apps u gotta do the "allow" ALL thing. this is why my FB n UberTwitter didn't work at first. TRY it out guys!

booboolala2000

downloaded but haven't loaded onto my berry yet. Do you have to extract the vendor file and if so i have never done this before so how do i do this. when i click on the icon it goes directly to setup. Any help frustrated with .148 time for the new.

magelloracle

Runs pretty fast...minor lag here and there but loving the transitions and threaded sms.

Anyone having problems with berrybuzz? I can get into the settinggs but it doesn't list functions, show color options. Just gives me the option to enable or disable and to change the blink length.

xGLAM0UR0USx

I'm having the same problem. I deleted then reinstalled it and it still wont work. Let me know if you figure out how to fix it!

JORDAN#IM

OPERA MINI 5 doesn't work on the 5.0.0.230

citi

That's a deal breaker for me. Guess I will be waiting for an Opera update first, which will probably come faster than Rim updating 5.

rupertnoton

Seems to be working for me with 5.0.0.230 :-)

Pureinsanity212

Opera Mini 5 beta working on mine. Wasn't initially, but after a quick uninstall/install works great. Except when you backspace, it deletes everything you've writen in the entire field.. Odd.

citi

theres a fix to that. Use the opera virtual keyboard in settings>advance>virtual keyboard on. You just can't use the BB keyboard.

alcor34

I can't get my napster tracks to work anymore. When i usb it no longer just recognizes the blackberry. i have to manually switch to mass storage which does not work for my music because then it wants to make me pay for them.

thachamp

i tried installing this using BB DM v5.0 in Parallels and also using the loader.exe file (after deleting the vendor.xml file) and BB DM tells me i need to be subscribed to BB Device Services or something and thru the loader.exe file i get an error on task 4 of 11 when it tries to connect to the phone to install the ROM (because it can't connect). so in a nutshell, no bueno.

speerman86

Me too...anyway around this? I got it to download onto my storm but then when i tried to connect it back to DM to restore my data...it shut down...and continued to until I disconnected it. HELP!!

Quikszilva

I Had the same problem, all i simply did was restart my computer, started up the Blackberry manager, and clicked restore worked like a charm.
Also make sure your desktop manager is at version 5
Hope this works good luck!

speerman86

Do you have a mac running parallels? Which did you shut down? still not working and gets stuck at step 5 connecting to device? Please help!

thachamp

and im wondering if it's going to do this with all of the other leaked/beta OS out there and thus should not even bother trying to do this at all thru Parallels...

speerman86

what other way are you thinking...? what are you gonna do?

thachamp

i was referring to using the BB DM in Parallels to install ANY of the other leaked/hybrid OS that are already out there.

melvs09

running the 5.0 os and the bbm doesnt seem to work, any suggestions

ahmedh2001

First off, the software is a major upgrade. everything works flawlessly, the transitions, the flick scrolling, everything. However my gripes, which Im sure many of you have too:

quickpull does not work, app world is deleted and must be downloaded OTA after installation, application center update gives a 404 error.

other than those major gripes (to me) everything seems to work fine. anybody know HOW to make quickpull work without me physically pulling the battery for now?

steve.cureton

I downloaded and installed the os 5.0. and wow it is everything and more of what i have expected in a blackberry storm

Quikszilva

FLick scrolling, smooth transistions, icons much more polished,dial pad is now much faster and accurate, keyboard is spot on! The web is extremely fast, and best of all threaded messaging! all my apps 3rd party as well work flawlessly! This is great you will not regret it at all!
Im totally in love with my storm again!

fryechad

it comes with a today theme. go under options where you change your icons on you homepage to 1, 2 , 3 rows it now has a today option ..

Other then the weather apps and app center not working right WHICH I DON"T CARE IF THOSE WORK!!.. THIS UPDATE IS BY FAR THE BEST

Pureinsanity212

Google Sync not yet compatable.... Still Amazing. :)

citi

Are you sure? Did you reinstall it and reset permissions? I don't know if it would work or not, but that usually fixes issues.

Pureinsanity212

Once you uninstall, Google Sync is no longer able to even be downloaded from the m.google page. Doesn't give you the option to d/l the app anymore. All of my permissions are set to Allow and still no dice. Lame.

jvcvem2003

my google sync did not delete when i installed this new upgrade. and it works just fine. i think its wierd how everyone has different issues. this upgrade works awesome, but i cant call out or recieve calls now, and havent been able to find anyone to help me out. so im downgrading again lol

citi

argg...don't know what to do then. My business is linked to google sync. I guess I could sync with my macbook with ICAL>google>DM but what a hassle! Looks like I may be waiting.

citi

googlesync works, the trick is not to uninstall on the upgrade to 5, I guess because

carl1028

How do you turn off the SureType feature....it's F-ing annoying and I can't seem to shut it off. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

roadwarrior.jpm

I have deleted all old OS on computer and DM will not recognize updated OS. It still only shows 4.7 as current update. I also deleted all loader files before I un-installed and re-installed. Any help would be great. Thanks

fryechad

Did you delete the vender.xml file? if not got to C:/programs/common files/research in motion/apploader and you should see a file call Vender.xml.. get rid of it and try again

roadwarrior.jpm

This seriously should not be that difficult. I have un-installed, re-installed, deleted, re-downloaded, eliminated vendor files and the &*%*# DM still only shows 4.7. What in the world could I possibly be missing?

tj_elward

dont be connected to the internet?

actuallylovemystorm

love everything so far EXCEPT that I have lost the setup key and can't activate my outgoing email settings! I go into options in messages and can't find the screen to enter in my password, signature, etc. Hoping I don't have to reinstall if anyone has any ideas.

UPDATE: I'm an idiot! Forgot that I had it hidden on the last build. Everything is fine and this is a must upgrade!

juanflight

after uploading .230 my messenger just dissapeared from the phone. I went and download the new one and... nothing... I cant find it... or it doesn't work.... any clue?

saltacocote

Some time the messenger icon appears after that. give it a try.

bb-rookie

You have to put the old messenger back on till they release the official 5.0... Just plug your phone back in and open DM go to Add or Remove App. scroll down and BBM should be unchecked. Click on it so its checked and hit finish. That should do the trick. Opera Mini 5 does work. I don't know who said it doesnt. It acted fishy at first but now works like a charm. Weather Bug doesnt work but Weather
EyeTouch works like a charm. It will do untill everything is fixed and official! All my themes work with this as well!!!

juanflight

Thanks for your help bu I was talking about the MSN messenger, not the BBM. and yes... I did battery bull and nothing changed...

seansports

The .230 seems like a great upgrade according to some but I have valuable apps that I need to keep working like berrybuzz, quicklaunch. ubertwitter, drivesafe.ly and others that I am afraid I will lose. If anyone have an solution to those paticular apps on .230 let me know.

fryechad

Drive safely will and so will ubbertwitter but i don't have the other ones hope that helps some

jendrzejczyk

Listen people this OS has been out for a week already and there are at least 5 threads with hundreds of comments in them that cover what works and what doesnt. BBM 5.0 does not work on ANY 5.0 OS so thats not changed and all the other programs have already been tested for the last week while you were all just to lazy to keep up with the forums. Do some research in other threads when there are already threads up and running instead of flooding this thread with them. Also the only posts in this thread should be saying what is different from the hybrid version leaked a week ago. Come on people.

beloved1228

Actully I had BBM 5.0 working on my 5.0.0.148
FYI

groovedaddy24

Funny, I had NO problems downloading and using BBM 5 all day since upgrade... Obviously it is having mixed results, but don't insult people when you yourself are mis-informed! Just To Clarify.... BBM 5 HAS WORKED FINE FOR ME ON THIS UPDATE. Not sure why it doesn't work for some, but I have had no problems

miller14

I went from 148 directly to 230 and I don't know y but my Facebook is working it took a few tries to connect but I finally did.

seansports

Thanks fryechad.
Does anybody know if .230 works with berrybuzz and/or quicklaunch?

paulmac

Quick Launch appears to work, don't user Berrybuzz so can't answer that.

pixleateit

So my 5.0 bbm icon isn't available anywhere. i looked for hidden icons and in my folders, i can't find it. I'm guessing it isn't compatible with the new 5.0 os.
But will the old bbm work?

juanflight

yes, the BBM 4.7 works just perfect...

groovedaddy24

Not there when you install, just go and re-download it. BBM 5.0.0.33 running fine on OS v 5.0.0.323

Just go and download it fresh, you should have no issues. I didn't.

juanflight

one thisg I see different compared to other loads is the volume of the speaker. .230 has a VERY loud speaker... Has anyone noticed that?

citi

yeah, it's too loud. Distorted.

Soco_Jon

this is the best thing since chocolate...everything runs great..the look..its so detailed!!, the feel its so smooth..so fast....everything is just better!!...OMG!!! im loving my storm right about now.

buritoslicer

Awesome! This is a huge update for the storm! makes it much easier to wait for the storm 2 :))

leusink_10

(i have also noticed the speaker is much louder juanflight)

so far i am loving .230. there is ONE major problem i am having though, my Browser is not working? i click on it and it wont even open up? i have tried reinstalling the OS a few times now and every time i get the same thing? anybody!?!? PLEASE HELP :(

juanflight

what carrier are you using?

nitzer280

Everything appears to work fine for me, sans the GMail Application. Throws some sort of red exception error and doesn't go any further. I'll browse around and post the fix here if I can find it. :)

paverstone

I'm getting a browser error every time I try to load Facebook or get on the browser to blackberry app world. Other sites work but every time I try I get this HTTP Error 502: Bad Gateway

booboolala2000

after an hour it came up with the sandard vzw screen
dont like the threaeded messages that much like my yahoo sep frpm mytext and everything else. will get used to it though..seems pretty slick. wen browsing seem just as lame. get of yopur bump rim. seems a lot slicker. will post back after i have had sufficient time to tear it up. P

buddy5709

running it right now just downloaded it earlier today. it feels much like and iphone and you can def tell that rim is trying to copy it it some sort, which isnt a bad thing. a couple of glitches here and there but so far so good

GargoyleDC

I do really like it...I agree with the comment about the GMAIL app....I am going to delete and reload.

glenelgstudio

Seems like I try a new os everyweek with the hopes of keeping EDGE on my unlocked storm. I've already tried 2 versions of 230,191,148,167 and a whole bunch of others but I always go back to 75. 5.0.0.191 EDGE worked a little but that version is so limited that not much else does the latest 230 works for me everything works the flick scrolling is not like 191 or iphone but its ok like 1/2 flick scrolling had to reinstall facebook and app world but it's a diff version of facebook still limited but better facebook I will keep this until I start losing EDGE but I just installed it without any os delete or battery pulls

BB_luva

After I install on my PC (vista), Desktop Manager nor Apploader will recognize that I even have the OS.

Did you install according to the install directions found here on crackberry?

mason721

Ever since I upgraded to .230, my storm has been freezing periodically when using it, regardless of the app. It will just lock up, and I'll have to do a battery pull to reboot it.

Is anyone else having this issue, or can someone help me fix it?

SterlingVT

I'm having the same problem.

Ms_GAStorm

Okay, so I saw this posting last night and I was a little skeptical at first since I only had the .191 for a couple of weeks. But, since I had success with that version, I figured that I try out .230. I downloaded it last night and so far, I'm pretty satisfied with the results. The screen transitions are faster, flick scrolling is better, and the SMS threading is pretty cool too. The only thing that I didn't like was that all of my contacts were erased during the process (thank God for the SIM card) and I had to go back and input all of my addresses, email addresses, and particular contact alerts. Also, I had to download the Facebook app but that works great. So far, I'm satisfied with .230.

Is it just me, or is the speaker noticeably louder with this version?

Can someone tell me how to retrieve the application center, if possible?

mcguirej#CB

Really glad I switched over from .167. Finally an OS that works the way I would have expected when the storm came out.

magelloracle

If I enable speaker phone in portrait mode and the phone switches to landscape, the speaker phone shuts off...or vice versa. Just a minor glitch but you'd think it would stay enabled regardless of the switch.

JGStorm

I am going back to the latest official OS. I loved the changes they made in 5.0.0.230 but it was buggy and glitchy. Still needs work, think i will wait for the official OS release. Love the direction!! Keep it going!

nitzer280

Very slick this v5 leak; I'm glad this is the direction RIM is going. But no GMAIL app necessitates a back-rev. It's all good; I'll wait until Verizon officially releases it.

rboram

Hey i installed the new .230 but my applications wont work.tried to download new appworld but wont let me.i get error 404,any help?

Non Sequitor

I have not had any problems re-installing any of my apps. I don't know enough people who use BB to need my BBM, so that's not even an isse. EVERYTHING is working as it did on my last OS, but a helluva lot better.

sellinginflorida

This was my first attempt at loading a leaked OS and boy was it worth it! Loading was a breeze thanks to Kevin's link. So what the Storm SHOULD have been when it was released! Thanks CrackBerry!

Non Sequitor

I installed 5.0 last night and after playing with it all day at a work function, I have to say that this is what I thought I'd be getting when I bought my Storm. And now I see Storm 2 may be making a pre-Halloween debut. Awesome.

mmcquay73

I have been looking for this link forever...Is it pulled?

glenelgstudio

Okay there was a problem where when I tried to make a call it said call in progress. It would give a beep when i push the end button. Once I receive a call it would work again opera mini 5 works great I'll stay with 230 unless some other problem pops up in the days to come. does anyone know if version 5 os have some type of security where they wont play ripped music?

SeanT316

I have to say I upgraded about 2 nights ago and for the most part I'd rate this OS from a scale of 1-10 and 8.5 and the only reason it wouldn't have a 10 is because of the volume (eventhough I lowered everything) is extrememly loud and distorted and when my headphones are plugged in I noticed during the song change it mutes on the next song which is annoying. Also the app center doesn't work. Other than that I love how I don't have to do battery pulls every few hours to every day after using an application like google maps or facebook, the smoothness of the transitions from one program to the next and just the whole setup of it. The minor glitches such as the screen showing partial white area isn't bad esecially when it goes away. All in all I think its worth downloading because your Storm becomes a whole new phone. I do think Verizon will release an update sometime during the month around the time The Storm 2 comes out and I hope its this one but being fixed up.

tool212

This update is really cool. however some bugs I experienced are music wont keep playing songs with rhapsody consistently. It will start one then stops after it is over.all lot of my apps disappeared and vlingo won't connect or work. That is all i experienced so i am now trying to downgrade.

plae2win

I missed it I missed it..no more link cansomeone email it to me... PLease

eXecute250

do anyone have a better link then this on.... all i keep getting is 404 error on page

eXecute250

i have been reading the comments and that is so Fd up it sounds like i missed out on a good update.... i pretty sure i few other folks including myself would surely like if someone posted another link

petedandu

after install you lose some APPS. As for Blackberry App world you actually have to go to the site from the browser and re install it. Your application list wont work and it will not refresh for you. As far as Berry Buzz that is not working for me either. I guess I am going to have to wait for the official release before I can use that. I am keeping version 5 because its fast and clean and great.

RyanGS#CB

I love the direction they are taking with the leaks but way too many day to day apps arent working, or arent working correctly. also the speaker sounds horrible, like the speakers are about to blow. Random reboots.

I think im going back to 167 for the time being, hopefully the next leak will support more apps (or visa versa)

supamn99

I clicked on that link that Crackberry provided but i get a blank page

mattzmud

Okay, so I found another link to the file at phonedog.com, and I downloaded and unzipped the file, installed it and then opened Desktop Manager. When I plug my phone in and DM searches for upgrades, however, it is not finding the new upgrade that I just installed. Any ideas? Did I maybe download a bogus upgrade?

**UPDATE**
Up and running just fine...Facebook and all!

supamn99

I clicked on that link that Crackberry provided but i get a blank page. Does anyone have a newer link

O_Mariscal4#CB

Looking to try the new leaked. But it seems the link is dead, anyone have any idea where i can download the leaked version?

cazper96

I am a newbie on here so go easy.
I updated my 9530 (on Verizon) with the OS 5 update, but now my application center won't work. It trys to update it, but then gives me a "An error occured while updating the application list: Error 404". any suggestions?

plae2win

Thanks for the phonedog tip.just downloaded it and getting ready to install.

SterlingVT

This is by far the best upgrade yet, even with the glitches. Quickpull and meterberry not working, but I can live without them. And I had to lower the volume on all the sound profiles.
my battery life is also a lot better.

RiverboyX89

Does anyone have another link?

The link seems to be no longer working.

terbo1970

I'm slow. Just seen the leaked OS is now available. I'm wondering can you upgrade to this using a Mac running the new Blackberry Desktop Manager For Mac software?

fer1312523

Damn what a big difference coming from .148. This is great. A MUST HAVE. Much quicker. All apps im using work and so does internet browser. Great threaded messaging. and transitions. AWESOME

NewLife

this (old)9530 Storm? Is this os a game changer? Or Storm 2?

cuby82

Someone please put up the link to this, the old one doesn't work...I can't believe I missed this! HELP PLEASE

dkmoody

But please please please BACK UP.

I was running .148 and toyed for days about making this jump. I decided to futz with it while manning a teenager's birthday party...

The install would have been much more fun except I've bricked my 9530 as of 7:30PM last night and am still working to recover.

So DO back up and use BBSAK to back up the 3rd party. At least I know when I recover I've got everything.

Suggestions appreciated as I continue working here and watching NFL...

Thanks.

seansports

I just upgraded and was concerned with my apps being compatible. The ones that are working with no problems are: ubertwitter, drivesafe.ly, berrybuzz, youmail plus, quicklaunch, patternlock, quick pull(basic), weatherbug. Camera & Video Recorder are functional now if upgrading from .191.
I'm very satisfied so far.

LOUISCALDERON

Weatherbug LOCATION UPDATE FAILED for ME...I have to manually do it, it will work but the GPS doesnt work for me on this application. Any suggestions?

sminnick

When I click on this link I get an Error 404 in Internet Explorer. Is there any other way to get to the leaked version of the OS?

Thanks

DeuceDos

DeuceDos

Thanks for the new link dkmoody!
