BBM 5.0.0.52

It appears as if BlackBerry Messenger 5.0.0.52 is included with the latest Bold 9700 leaked OS, and BBHybrids has posted an OTA link so everyone can get in on the fun. Rumors all over on what is new/different in this version (dive into our forums for lots of threads on it), but if you want to give it a go you should be able to install it on any device running OS 5.0. We're not sure how long the link will stay working, but you can give it a shot and keep your eyes out for any download mirrors that will likely pop up. Be sure to leave a comment and let us know your findings.

ceepee

if u dl the BBM after u delete the one u have on ur BB originally the DL time is like 2 minutes.

driphter

this is one popular download!!! To those having difficulty, please be patient as the number of people attempting to download is staggering.

It's worth the update. Much improved over 5.0.33!

Thanks BBHYBRIDS.net!

Improvements:
New Icon
File Transfer gives option to preview before download
Group Chat is smoother
Option to auto accept voicenotes
Overall Faster

Enjoy!!!

SDenis

yea mine took forever and it kept asking if i was sure throughout the download but its rebooting now...hope all is well and some changes have been made

eklisiewicz

That is not indicated anywhere.

joshua.worth

They left out all other OS (phone software) therfore no it doesn't work with the Garbage RIM has left to most of us people with coverage (CDMA)

wsm23

It says Gateway error everytime I try to use the OTA..........

cliff87jr

almost the same. need more for the tour tho

wsm23

Anyone else get a "download failed" message???

FrankDLR1972

Yeah, i got 'download failed' too and I clicked on details. A message said "907 Invalid COD HTTP Error 504: Gateway Timeout"

AsosaYoung

It has voice notes now!

jesse.anger

Just checked my current version of BBM before this update and it also has voice notes option. Just to point out that seems to not be a new feature.

SDenis

i agree.. for those who cant download it, its not worth the struggle.. wait for the next one...

rugbyua9#CB

The download is extremely slow for me. im on a storm 2 and after a while it just fails. Gets about 50%.

rugbyua9#CB

same as above... 907 Invalid COD HTTP Error 504: Gateway Timeout

jesse.anger

Shortly after reaching 50% the download fails for me.
5.0.0.348 on Bold 9000/Rogers

teddyp6

I am going to wait to see what's new about this before I try it on my 9700. If anyone sees a major difference, please post.

flexyneat

Download keeps failing, even with a Wi-Fi COnnection

Hey CrackBerry Nation I know how great leaks like these are but keep in mind the pressures they can put on the BlackBerry servers. When the first BBM 5.0 leak came out everyone was jumping on it and it caused major issues to the BBM efficiency. Trust me I like new stuff as much as the rest, but this is not a Vendor by Research In Motion product and should not be downloaded. There will most likely be an official update to BBM soon since there are new enhancements happening on the backend.

Just be patient.

katiepea

what are you even talking about, the inefficiencies were caused by RIM not having their servers ready for bbm 5, but that issue is over with now, it's all upgraded. it's not vendor by RIM because it's hosted separately by people here, it's included from the newest 9700 build, so you're pretty much completely wrong with everything you said

casperkaroff

katiepea,

You might want to get your facts straight. The inefficiencies are caused by leaked (not official) products getting out to the public. RIM does not have to support these because they are not official. READ ALL LEAKED DISCLAIMERS! If they have an official product released to the public and it has issues then that's another story. Also, the 9700 .415 is once again a "leaked" unofficial version, not supported by RIM unless it and all the contents of the OS (including BBM 5.0.0.52) is officially released!

It's disappointing to see people blame RIM for what others are leaking out to the public. If RIM hasn't made it official you can't expect them to by ready!

I enjoy leaks as well as others but it bothers me when people complain that RIM needs to do this or that! We are lucky to even get leaks of products and os's. Some devices are not getting the love (Tour) but that doesn't mean that it will not come. There is a leaked 5.0.0.230 version for the Tour but people want more. That's cool and to degree I will agree with those people especially with all the love the 9700 is getting. But the 9700 is a GSM (international) device, where the Tours are CDMA. GSM devices are easier to build software for, so you will always see more for them. I am still waiting for a leak for the 9550, but all i can is wait.

bassplaya51

Why does RIM have to like that crap... I get download failed everytime. And I was still running the 4.7 messenger b/c the 33 was so awful..now I lost that during the failed download process. How could RIM have released something as SUCKY as .33 anyway? Gah!! Drives me crazy...someone get a new link please!!!!!! FAST!!!!!!!!

wojtas25

Its not RIM released BBM *.52 but some betatesters or just pulled out from OS *.415 for BB Bold 9700.

aatonytone

My storm has a crack in the screen i can def use a new BB!

Kronk

Wrong post dude. lol

r3g

Whats new about this version? I've been running .33 on OS 5.0.0.348 with no problems.

Jay21fire

PLEASE SOMEONE GET US A NEW LINK ASAP THANKS

abmtgman

is what I'm getting.

syquest1

I guess I will wait for the official...OH...THATS RIGHT....I own a Tour which means I no longer exist to RIM...sorry almost lost my mind for a second.

arsenalsocal

Tried a few times without deleting .33, deleted .33 and kept getting the same message that everyone else is getting. Reinstalling .33 right now

sabbotage

That link is bad also, I get download failed unable to import zip file. I've tried it 3 times too.

gr8cop

* Note, disregard I have bbm 5.0.33 still.

Ok, since I don't know anyone else with a 9700 who downloaded 415, if someone could send me a picture through bbm to see if it works. I will send one back. Please keep it clean. pin:2147f0c2

ksison

bcryberg

The first post mentions a new icon...is anyone else seeing this? I have the same icon that I had with 5.0.0.33

kimnguyen717

all the links are dead, are there anymore OTA links that works?

clarkkentsm

i just downloaded it OTA from deathmau! hurry up and get it while it lasts

follow @jovancollins

DonnyG2

Some of you really need to take a step back and THINK. THIS WAS NOT RELEASED BY RIM!!!!!!!

willyboy6

Plenty of us are running operating systems that weren't officially released by RIM, you think those same people are worried about one program? /chuckle...

kermalou

something annoying is that it confirms that you want to end chats now.

bcryberg

So far, seems faster than 5.0.0.33. I've had no delay in sending bbms

thatton

I finally got this one to work:

http://www.nathanix.com/downloads.php

Thanks! It only took about 40 attempts with 10 different OTA's before this one finally worked. Thanks Deathmau5.

clintmbrannon

Your link was the only one I could actually get to work... so far, so good.

abmtgman

Excellent build...:) No delays and also has Auto Accept Voice Notes as well (was told it was in .33 but didn't have that one).

Stormo

try it guys.. way faster than .33
thanks deathmau5 for posting the mirror link

willyboy6

Big up to BBHYBRIDS.NET for this one..... Thanks guys

Vincent Iula

Anyone else having problems with the tour?

bcryberg

What kind of problems? Working here so far

ksison

THANKS BBHYBRIDS!!!!

THANKS FOR THE 2ND LINK NATHANIX YOU'RE A BEAST IN THE GAME!!!!!!!

bztouring

Plenty of us are running operating systems that weren't officially released by RIM, you think those same people are worried about one program? /chuckle...

So true.. Loaded and it works fine

Vincent Iula

i downloaded the 5.0.0.52 successfully, but i cant find it on my tour, i tried the shortcut "N" and i could see BlackBerry Messenger in my application. Cant find the icon anywhere

bx2md

look in your folder downloads

ksison

THANK U!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WANT TO MARRY U

DUKDIKz

it took sooo long to finish downloading it...

but its worksss =D

KhatIsDope

my bbm icon disappeared after downloading.. even if i go to applications, it says i still have it installed on my phone. sucks. now my bbm is gone..

willyboy6

Just do a battery pull. You have to reboot after installation, just like most other apps.

KhatIsDope

i did a battery pull 3 times.. checked every folder possible. still nothing.. ;(

Pooman

You rock rmingram, that link worked!!

terrie1972

Finally got this one to work after about 4 times and 10 YES prompts.

Thanks thatton!

Marcjcd

Not one of the these links have worked for me... either a "uable to import zip" error before the download ends or a "download failed" error as teh download completes.

GMCloud27

Great build! When sending pictures to a BBM contact, it no longer brings up spell check first. Fast performing (coming from .33), smooth setup, loaded via BBSAK on 9000 running .238

jtam11

So after about an hour of trying over and over to get the OTA download to get passed 50%, I finally have it. So to those that still haven't had any luck, keep at it. You'll get it eventually. From first glance, the only difference I notice is the font change of my contact's status. I haven't had a chance to play with it yet but I'll get to it after I get off work.

qkrcjdfla

The first link on BBHybrids worked perfectly for me on the first try. I'm running .238 on an AT&T Bold.

leafs123

i noticed that the text of the on-going convos under the chat section got much smaller...anyone notice this, can it be changed?

shirase

faster delivery on my messages too. seems promising.

Awrey9530

it is taking forever but i hear it is worth the wait!?!

saki75

So far I see no difference from the version that was standard on my 9700 (5.0.0.33)

katsaysmoo

i have to admit i'm getting a bit annoyed...i keep getting 907 invalid COD no matter what link i go to, no matter how many times i try to install...anyone else getting this message???

rayporsche

I downloaded the latest 9700 leaked OS, the 415 and still shows the BBM 5.0.0.33 version..............

Jes23

does this work for curve 8900?

BBNMDG

I finally got it downloaded and there definitely isn't a new icon. The preview text is smaller which isn't so great but its still 5.0 so I guess I didn't lose THAT much

l ll llll l l ll

I have been trying for over an hour now with multiple links and every time i get to about 80% and then get the 907 error ... any help???

makeupaddicted

Got it after like 10 attempts! Ugh

makeupaddicted

Got it after like 10 attempts! Ugh

SmokeyDaBear

It's weird cuz the LCD lights up, albeit with a black color and the keyboard lights up. My phone stayed like that for a good 5 mins before it became usable. I reloaded it a 2nd time thinking something went wrong the first time, but 2nd time did the same thing.

Anyone else getting a black screen for a good 5 minutes after BBM .52 is loaded??

chib32394

how do you download it to ur phone ??????
