If you didn't get in on the OS 5.0 action yet, you may want to give it a go this time around. It has been less than a month since we saw OS 5.0.0.230 leak for the Tour, and today OS 5.0.0.273 for the Tour 9630 surfaced on the web. Reports are mixed on this one, so be sure to let us know how it works out for you. As always, use caution when installing a leaked OS.

*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. *

There seems to be lots of reports this OS crashes and burns quite a bit.

andyourdone

I've been reading in other forums that this version crashes and freezes a lot. I would stick with .230 or the Hybrid .230/.238

It's really a shame, I've been sitting at the edge of my chair waiting on a new Tour OS

robmcbell

.230 has been working great for me since CrackBerry first wrote about it. What's new in this release? Anything worth the risk?

DAMNIT verizon better get on the bus... been waitin for 5.0 for freakin ever now. too scurred to try a leaked, i just want my trackball to work rite!! seriously how long does it take, maybe that verizon guy from the commercials should get in there and kick some @ss for us instead of doin game shows and stuff..

ouchapole

the trackball problem has nothing to do with the software. i thought the same thing for the longest time until a read of a new hardware version with the trackball fixed. i called verizon and sure enough it was a known issue and without any further questions they sent me out a replacement phone (with a green dot sticker on the outside of the phone's box) and it has been working brilliantly since! i recommend you give them a call too! good luck!

rion_j

I thought the same thing as well. Recieved a Green Dot Tour from Verizon and couldnt be happier. It's a known issue, dont wait for 5.0, replace your Tour now. You will be happy you did. It's a completely different experience.

ronsonger

I dont understand, green dot?

bsharitt

Is there still no word or even a guess on when 5.0 will go offial for the current phones?

jlb21

He can't....he's still busy reliving his Price is Right appearance..... :)

ronsonger

lmao i kno i had to change it and point that one out

keylacy

i was running .230 on my vzw tour, we will see. i had problems getting notified on my texts. ill let yall know how it runs. i only run bbmessenger, beejive (sometimes) and social scope.

ronsonger

i wanted that app for my vzw tour and it said verizon was not compatible and cannot use that app and would not let me download it.....

keylacy

it works fine on my tour, i just have the 1.1 version of it. have you went thru ur 30 day trial yet?

ronsonger

no app world would not even let me download it

ronsonger

thanks! and i dont have os 5 yet cuz them verizon bastards have yet to release it for me. THANKS

actorman1087

Hello i read that you had problems trying to download beejive on your tour. Im having the same problem, keeps saying it has to meet system requirements.i have a brand new tour so im assuming everything is up to date. You had any luck?

irtehun

Don't waste your time with this OS it freezes constantly.

keylacy

have u tried a few battery pulls? mines froze at first and i am running it fine now

SIXXPAK56

how do i download it downloaded last one but forgot , lol need help . thanks

nxrodriguez

What's new or what's the difference from .230??? Is it worth the time to download and install??? Hmmmmmm...

keylacy

.230 is more stable....and i dont see any updates worth jumping to it but to each is own......i have had to do about 4 battery pulls in about an hour.....

SIXXPAK56

dont do it, its a waste has alot of bugs in it. could not text and get on web.

ismokecrackberries

I am running the last OS verizon released which is gay. Ive searched everywhere but the link for .230 on megaupload says the page is unavailabe. anyone know where i could find that OS to download since this one apparently is garbage?

gvlakers

I have uploaded 5.0.0.230 up onto my website as well.

The link is:

http://www.shawnbarton.com/howardforums/5.0.0.230.exe

I plan on leaving the link up as long as my site doesn't get slammed with traffic.

"I am running the last OS verizon released which is gay."

What are you, 10 years old?

mlemieux19

this OS is garbage. Wait for the official release. I installed this OS and my BBM and 90% of my apps are gone, plus my internet doesn't work now and my Blackberry App Store is nowhere to be found.

mlemieux19

now that I finally have everything reinstalled on my phone this new OS works really good as long as I don't send or receive calls/texts, try to open facebook or ESPN and go into my games. As long as I don't do any of those mentioned things the phone will not freeze. Maybe they can leak a 5.1 that just makes the phone blow up in my face!

tediprude

I'm wondering if it will be possible to have two Bolds ( one with cam and one without) and switch betweent he two?

Just a thought.

Peace...

tarishaclark

I haven't had any issues yet, and I am actually pleased that my media player works correctly again. Anyhoo, I hope nothing goes wrong!

six4seven

I don't give a fuck about 5.0. The Tour is the shit without it.

kase502

Downloaded last night with no problems. Has the pre like notifications( when talking to some1 the new sms message appears below like on the pre)always been on 5.0?

gr8lkn85

This OS is far too unstable. This OS freezes and causes random restarts. I haven't had those since my old Palm Treo 650 and I'm not about to start backsliding to that point now! I'm downgrading back to .230 It was very stable for me. Anyone want a used Storm? Great shape! I hate that I cant get it to work on Sprint's network. Verizon is just too expensive!

gr8lkn85

$125 plus shipping which should be pretty cheap! Comes with Black silicone case, car charger, original box and all documents, home charger.

Rapid Dr3am

Now if only it would leak for the bold.

SamVJr

I'm also having problems with random reboots. While it works its pretty nice. I love the SMS being integrated into BBM. Although one thing mine was constantly doing was telling me that it thought I was in a new time zone anytime I tried to make a phone call. The major thing though that is causing me to downgrande is that it caused my phone to stop being able to charge on a wall charger. It see's the USB charge fine but if it can't see a wall charger no point in me keeping this on here for now.

Ronald Aka Big Ron

My phone freezes not a good leak too many bugs in this leak,
but im loving the 5.0 os now back to 4.7..

chicubfan08

If you have any idea what you are doing and want a 5.0 on your Tour download a hybrid version. It works great! If not then don't post how you don't. Also if you have a HARDWARE issue a SOFTWARE update will not fix it.

TheDeeve

nothing but problems with this OS. mutiple battery pulls, and tons of freezing. Didnt allow me to charge with the wall charger, keyboard doesnt light up when pressed in the dark. doesnt stay connected to the 1XEV network for me, cuts in and out saying searching for CDMA when im in an area where ive always had a clear connection! too many bugs in this os, wait for the official !

robotaholic

I have used this os on my Tour and it's perfect, facebook, myspace, blackerry appworld, everything works except sprint navigation (don't care) and I can't get media sync to connect to my device but desktop manager works fine -

This os is great- it works just fine and I'm loving the improved browser, the new options in the theme (like today), the word suggestions, the threaded sms, it really works fine- you people who have had problems with this are crazy or not good at os installation one or the other-

my version is identical to this except the branding is 1.0.104...

robotaholic

and instead of that skiddish time when the phone just boots up when it scans your media card- with this version it doesn't really do a scan when it starts up - so it's much better than the 4.7.1 versions-

Chet_84

Does bb msgr5.0 and app world work on os 5.0.0.230 tried it out last week and app world was gone and bbmsgr 5.0 wouldnt work either

Chet_84

also forgot to ask does anyone no if sprint has fixed the trackball issue do they have the green dot boxes that the verison customers are talking about

josema9000

so this means the update for the bold is around the corner! maybe :p

uae_girl

bxqbcat

actorman1087

Can some one please tell me what i need to get beejive? i have a brand new tour 9630 with os 4.7. Thanks

cspedley

5.0.0.273 is complete crap. Installed last night. Once complete, I put it on the charger and went to bed. This morning it was hung. Pulled the battery and hung during reboot. Pulled battery again and it came up to only last 15 minutes before it hung again. then the battery pull X2 AGAIN. I gave it a couple of hours of play timeand gave up. Wiped the device, and went down to 5.0.0.230. No problems this far and I have benn using all day. Boot time is still 6 -7 minutes.230 is pretty stable thus far. Looking forward to the official release! I like OS 5 over 4.7

Nick2gGST

I have 4.7.1.61 and that's it I haven't changed anything on my tour, have verizon, I'm trying to find a better OS but I need one ota if possible? The links all on here are getting shut down. Can anyone email me, I need a mentor so I can get my phone running better and faster and more reliable.
Mazdamx3sohc@aim.com or @yahoo.com whichever is more convenient.
Anyone know what the deal is about an official os release?

wookiesworld

is anyone having issues with set tones for contacts? I have some personal tones set for certain contacts, but their sms txt tone comes through as the default tone, and not the ones I have set for them. And its only on a couple of my contacts. Can anyone help, or explain?
