*UPDATE- Installer file now added for download - OS 5.0.0.497*

Its been forever since we've seen a leaked OS for the Storm2 9520. Almost every other device has had a leaked OS pop up lately, so now the 9520 gets to join in in the fun. BBLeaks posted this one, but keep in mind there is no installer and this is just the OS files. You'll have to put these in the proper folders on your PC before installing on your device, so if you don't know what you're doing, wait a few hours and I'm sure someone will release a version with an installer. As always, use extreme caution when installing a leaked OS. Hit up the link below to download. The password to the archive is 2mrotS.

*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 would demand a DNA test. Surely the 9550 is the redheaded step child. There is no love there whatsoever. No leaks, no official, no nothing.

There was a 9520 leak just the other day... there has not been 9550 love for quite some time; *bastard step-child* no love... damn!

come on guys, make something happen.

according to bbleaks.com tweet, there is some 9550 love coming your way later today...they did say 9520 first and 9550 later! hope that brings a smile to your faces!

i swear if thats true i will be the happiest person on earth. theres nothing that this storm 2 needs other than an upgrade. this things falling apart! random reboots, and many other very annoying bugs that seem to appear over time...weird

does anyone know if we can copy the java folder of the 9520 and replace the current java folder in the 9550 directory?

try again. only the 9500 had a release. the 9530 is a different type of phone. one is CDMA the other is that other type of wireless thing. so no, the 9500 release CANNOT be used on the 9530.

there, now the storm 2 people can shut the hell up.

now, where's my 9530 leak? haven't had an update in months!!!

Looks like we are getting closer to the 9550 release bbleaks posted this on twitter:

Something to munch one while you wait for 9550 os:::: BESX and BlackBerry Shield Details Get Leaked

What are some of the fixes that this update will bring?

What Are you guys expecting from the update?

I Want better Battery life and a fast Internet Browser..

No Idea, I just like being on the newest version of things :) supported or unsupported.

I use bolt until RIM can get a better browser put together.
