Leaked: OS For The BlackBerry Storm 9500

Been a while since we seen a Storm OS leak. The folks over at BerryReview got their hands on OS for you all to check out. If you got a 9500 and plan on loading this up, be sure to leave some comments here and in the forums on how it's working out for ya. As always, caution advised as it is a leaked OS and be sure to back up your data.

*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).

Leaked: OS For The BlackBerry Storm 9500


Finally some love for 9500.. hope there are some massive changes.. downloading now... will post my observations shortly!!!

@boondocker: sorry this will not work for 8330

Man... Nothing for the 9700 for a long time! We got spoiled with all the leaks at once and now we are feeling neglected! Something has got to be on the horizon!

This is for the 9500 so I can use this on my 9530, correct? I normally just load it, but 9530 is usually mentioned and it isn't here. I wanna use it! LOL

why the **** can the storm 2 not have another leak?! its been months! and this thing still lags like crazy and does random reboots on me!! grrrr >:O

Which OS are you running? I'm on .451 Hybrid and have not had a single issue. Can't say the same for my old Storm 1. LOL

will someone leak something for the Storm 2 9550!!!! the storm 1 is as good as dead. forget leaking for this phone! all i can say is the Storm 2 better have some crazy improvements for this next leak!

Ummmmm....remember alot of people do still own the original storm series (9500/9530) In fact, more than that of S2 owners. Why are you harping for upgrades to a device that has some pretty significant hardware upgrades compared to our original models? At least let us catch up a little with some better software.

How many 9500 leaks will there be between each 9530 leak? Two? Three? Four? Just wondering why there haven't been many 9530 leaks in the last few months.

Must be nice to have such ruch, extravagant, problem free lives that some of you feel the need to b*tch and moan like school girls about phone OS leaks.

The most comments after a leak are" Will this work on my....? Why wont they make one for my..... How do I put this on my..... I tried using DM but it doesn't see the upgrade.... " Wow people don't read much do they? Sorry I guess I had a bad day but it's the same thing every single time! People, it's a leak for the 9500 PERIOD !!!

OH and the other thing.. Delete the Vendor file Ha Ha Ha Ha

For all the ppl that won't be able to load this leaked OS. Search your computer for all the vendor.xml files and not just the one u see in apploader.


Is there any significative difference with .451? I'm very satisfied with this os, and the battery is lasting tow days and a half...

Because it is VERY different on the inside, and this one doesn't have the drivers for those parts that aren't the same, like the antenna and s'on...

So that's why...

I’ve downloaded and installed on my Storm 9500. Works seamlessly. Tried all core and third party apps with the firmware and no glitches. Everything runs smoothly! Upgraded from 4.7 to this version. Improvements include, battery life (has made it WAY better!), quickness of scrolling, closing and opening apps is quicker. Overall….it has made the Storm BETTER!! Recommend to those wanting to upgrade! :-D

I am using Strom 9500 which is unlocked and can be used with any Service provider. So if i upgrade to 5.0 will it be the same scenario or i need to again unlock it for any SIM .
Please let me know.
