Just a few days ago we saw OS 5.0.0.405 for the 9700 pop up, and now we already have another leak floating around. Reports are good on this one, so if you have some spare time you may want to give it a go. Drop a comment and let us know if it has anything new (like my 'Show Recent Contacts When Composing Email' option!).

*Update: It looks like this OS may include an updated BBM (version 5.0.0.52) - the folks at BBHybrids have posted an OTA link so you can grab just BBM from your device here.*

*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. *

I just read about this on Blackberry leaks and already it's leaked!!! going to try it now *looking forward for that new BBM I was hearing about.

thatton

I can't even keep up with these leaks! I was just getting used to .405 and now this. What's the general consensus on this one?

saki75

Rapishare sucks! U have to wait 116 seconds to download, but then it tells you the "download session timed out". So basically if u don't
have a PREMIUM account, which let's u download faster, your screwed

Anyone have a download link from a different place?

WHERE OS 5 FOR BOLD 9000???

katiepea

wheres your capslock button :( there have been more 5.0 leaks for the bold than any other phone, so freaking tired of this argument.

callcom

Well, at least I'll be able to extend my trial on BerryWeather for another 3 days!

bondapher

and i just installed 405

rbracht

its fine guys.. use tour users will just continue to use 230... gotta love technology (for the 9700)

SurrealCivic

can someone post a link that is not megaupload/rapidshare/hotfile etc? Thanks!

torano

Another download link:
9700 5.0.0.415
http://depositfiles.com/files/l8qt92n47

This update includes an upgraded BBM v.5.0.0.52 as well as brings back your ability to choose what email accounts push to your main messages folder.

archpopoy

What's new with the new BBM?

fadi316

did rim forget that they made other blackberrys other than 9700???!!!! where is the love for 9000!!!!!!!!!!!!!

evorc

Stop complaining in 9700 section!!! this is for 9700 users to help each other out and find out the bugs/improvements of this build. Rim never forgets about it's other device they continue to work on getting their os updated. But for now priority is first! and that's 9700. 9700 is the best phone that Rim has out right now and it is obvious they want the best for it since the released 5.0 versions of the 9700 were buggy. PRIORITY is 9700 so stop crying they will eventually give you love once the 9700 is perfect!

amzchhabra

This is awesome! 97% downloaded from RapidShare, will be leaving the office in 10 minutes to go home and install this!

Hopefully by the time I get home this comments page will be full of disgruntled 9630/9000/8900 or should I say legacy users wondering where their OS5 update is ;)

DanielVox

So i'm having some msg Box issues with the 405 update ... or whatever so I'm like screw it i'm going to crackberry to see if they have another leak so that I can try that.

MUhahahhaah I love you crackberry ... YOU NEVER FAIL ME! :)

Love,
Obsessed 9700 Owner !

Why won't anyone post a megaupload link, or at least a free user link? C'mon...contributing isn't THAT hard.

Gonna try this OS, but the download is slow.
Sucks =/

joshua.worth

Yes Master RIM I will anxiously happily await the release of the Tour 2 9650then pay full retail for it in order to get an OS 5 Blackberry then when I get it yes I will pay shipping to send my 9630 back to Waterloo,ON,Canada as a gift thank you master RIM for allowing me to do so. Oh and any annoying bugs you could include in my 9650 would be greatly appreciated so I can anticipate whatever phone you may have coming out in the 2nd quarter 2010. Thanks Master RIM...... ( Actually I'm actively searching for a more customer friendly company ) 9700 Bold GSM service owners hope your enjoying your new OS's and your crappy coverage =) love your CDMA counter part Mr. Worth

syquest1

UNFREAKING REAL!!!! As a TOUR owner I give up!!

archpopoy

WOOT. Didn't really like the smaller icons from .405 so good job .415!

joshua.worth

Legacy owner here. Are you happy now?

rey_1178

two leaks already for the 9700 and not one new leak for the tour????? WTF?????

Yandar

There are a LOT more GSM carriers in the world than CDMA. It stands to reason we will have many more leaks for GSM. Im guessing there are 100 CDMA carriers in the world versus 1000+ GSM ones. So it 100 chances v 1000 chances of a leak.

archpopoy

Glad this has been resolved!!!

ugn

I just finished download 405 now theres 415 wow-- bold 9700 u never fail to amaze me

Nageki

I told myself I wouldn't mess with leaks as my Bold is running fine, however the addict in me wants to check out this release!

amirnabilkamelsaad

You read my mind, that's exactly what I said when I got my Bold 9700 too. 2 updates installed already in 2 weeks. hahaha

es_bih

That was me when .351 came out on Rogers. I kept my stock .330 Tmo OS. The day .371 came out days after - I couldn't take it. Then .405, and upgraded to .415 as soon as it came out. What can you do, it is fun after all.

amzchhabra

LOL @ joshua.worth

some people take comments on a forum so seriously! lighten up dude, OS5 for the Tour/OldBold/Curve will be out shortly (or so you all hope) :p

jhrain

Yes.. if you do not have a 9700, go post in your forums please. It's not our fault.

amzchhabra

It seems the pre-bundled IM apps are also updated - Windows Live Messenger is at 2.5.31, BB AppWorld shows latest version at 2.5.30

Cpt.GargameL

So uhh, MyFaves is gone again. <_<

Coach101

maybe RIM wants to stabalize 5.0 on its flagship before looking at previous models and making more of a mess on multiple devices

CrackBerryV79

I hope the duplicate and overwritten Contacts issue present in .405 (for some) is gone in this one. Might install in an hour or so...

ofutur

The 405 version was very bad and a step back from 371. This is the best version so far.

dsimons82

I just downloaded this OS and yea, the myfaves is nice to see back on, but my 3g seems to not show up. After I ran my back up files back on to the phone, it just showed the 3g without the bb flag next to it, so I had no internet connection. Did a reboot, and now I just have capitalized EDGE. Resent service books, and another reboot and still nothing. Any suggestions? And this OS seems kinda sluggish..i was running rogers .351 i think before. IDK, I love all these leaks, but I think I might just stick with the official releases until TMO releases their official. I work for TMO and the tech rep said they will soon release the new OS, they just didnt tell me when :(

My 3g is working fine and BBM .52 is working flawlessly right now. Maybe your location.

lisap006

my internet isnt working with everything...:(

4upTeamHussle

My Internet works but it just doesn't have tha 3G sign just tha EDGE...Im with AT&T tho

Cpt.GargameL

The only thing I like about .415 is that you get a SMS/MMS and Messages folder, other than that .405 is still "MyFave" because it has MyFaves and its much more stable.

Haze11368

What was actually added? or fixed? Someone pleasee answer :D

syb0rg

installed this update

-vodafone update doesn't work
-Opera mini 4.2 doesn't work
-NimBuzz doesn't work...

my 3 most popular apps are AWOL... this ia no go for me...

amirnabilkamelsaad

It works, but very badly. Press Enter instead of the track ball, and used R, G, D and F for navigation.
Trackball is like the back key.
A bit screwed but still usable.

rrscott#CB

tried to run the update through my parallels VM on a MAC and it won't load...I guess I'm stuck at 405 until the next leak.

zuckas

Works great on T-Mobile US. Corporate email is separated in it's own icon now called "Desktop". Yay!!! I deleted vendor.xml before running the msi just in case. I am not sure if that was necessary or not.

six4seven

You people are nobs! This OS doesn't mess with your 3G signals!!

THe only differecnes with this OS build is that if fixes all the memory leaks. I am booting with 10MB of extra memory available, as opposed to .405!!

SWEEEEETT!!

skidsteerloader

Does this work on the Bold 9700 for AT+T ? or is it for TMo ?

4upTeamHussle

Mines has no problems so far just not able to get tha 3G sign but internet still works

ofutur

Nimbuzz does work, so does Opera mini 5.

But there is a serious issue with this OS. It "hides" all your text messages at some point.
Seems BBM related. All the threaded SMSes disappear. They're still in the DB (advanced restore), but not shown.

lisap006

This link works great thanks guys!!! It was so worth getting a premium 2 month subscription with deposit files for 20 bucks....the new OS downloaded in 5 mins!!! totally worth getting a premium acct especially with all these leaks!!!

4upTeamHussle

"SomeOne try to make sure im not crazy" And its probly cuz I have my theme but HMu tell me wat u think.

DanielVox

(T Mobile User)

I have extra memory after installing this. Currently with 131.4 MB

Message Box still a little Buggy.

Booting up is questionable.. Not sure if it's faster or slower.

AIM, Yahoo, MSN, Updated

Theme's still work

Blackberry Messenger Updated

3G Still works as well as internet

Contacts Backup working again.

Theme Options Changed: New Look

App Store updated.

If I think of more . . . I'll add it :)

six4seven

I agree with all of the above (provided by DanielVox)

jennberton

I never downloaded a leak version before! This is very good!!! When it was first booted, I couldn't see my 3G sign and then it went to Edge, and after 30mins it was fine! I love the new options menu on the home screen!! My IM's is updated, now u can send a file through yahoo, gtalk etc! U can now send voice notes through bbm for the menu key, plus u can choose the pic size and preview before saving pics through bbm!! Very nice!!! I also like the audio postcard, and the mobile backup!!! The themes menu has been updated, and I like that u see sms/mms in ur main msg box! And that u can now add pic through the menu for ur contacts! Only I don't see is the "show recent contacts when composing an email" is that in the OS version???? Please let me knw!!!!!

So far so GOOD!!!!! :)

Vuittonbabi18

Just recently downloaded .415 and after the install everything worked fine except no service. I tried everything battery pull,turning off all network connection but yet still SOS still showed. So I had to go back to .296

wunmic

Is there an option to turn off 'Threaded SMS' yet? And also, does the 'Enter' key still substitute as the 'Send' key? Or is there a way to disable that option? Thanks!

tenyrnote

Is Verizon ever going to release the Bold???? Or at least an OS upgrade like every other device has gotten?????? Somebody please let me know if you have any info! This is getting frustrating.

nsd721

I am not sure how to run this leak on the BB MAC software..can someone message me and assist me. THANKS.

enotar
