Leaked: OS 188.8.131.522 for the BlackBerry Curve 3G
on 31 Aug 2010 04:26 am EDT
If you are new BlackBerry Curve 3G owner you may want to look into installing this. No, it's not quite a BlackBerry 6 build that your device is destined to get eventually but, it is likely one of the last OS 5.0 build you will see for it. We've not gathered any feedback on this release so do yourself a favor and follow the usual tips. Back up your data before loading and of course, be sure to delete any vendor.xml files if one is indeed present.
*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. *
