CrackBerry member the.abyzz dropped off a present in the forums this morning in the form of a link to an unofficial copy of OS 188.8.131.52 for the BlackBerry Storm 9500 (not 9530). The word in the forums is that RIM's internal development has now stopped on 4.7 and it's all 5.0 work from here on out, so this is likely one of the last 4.7 builds we'll see pop up for the Storm. You can click on over to the forum thread for the dowload links and more information. Now if only somebody would post a link for the 9530 version... the CrackBerry Stormies will thank you!
*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. *
