Leaked OS: for the BlackBerry Storm 9530

BlackBerry Storm 9530

The last leak that came out for the BlackBerry Storm 9530 was OS Now we have OS available for download. That's a rather large jump in OS versions so hopefully, it's bringing a lot of nice changes for 9530 owners. Remember, back up your data folks and let us know in the forums how it works for you all.

*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 9530


I'm real happy for you and imma let you finish, but the stroodleonkey had the best firsts of all time. *hands mic back*

I couldn't wait to get the 9530 when it first came out I got it I was happy and pissed off at the same time too slow but I loved the click screen and when the 9550 was released never will I go back to that beta version of the storm2

I just upgraded to the Storm 2 9550 today because my 9530 was so slow! Thankfully it was free since it was still under warranty, but this is extremely ironic that it comes out the day I get a new phone...

Its odd that the installer for this has the BerryCN logo instead of the RIM logo like usual. Seems like the installer has been repackaged.

Thanks for the update. We still have some 9530's in operation. I have some people that will welcome an up date. Appreciate the post.

Friday my Gmail suddenly stopped being deposited in it's own folder and only in the main message folder. After trying everything, today I decided to look for an update above OS but the links were all dead for OS I'm on CrackBerry all day and somehow missed its posting 10.20.2010.

After much hunting I found a live link that morning that worked well: http://zonablackberry.com.ve/forum/649198-post1.html.

Then CrackBerry released OS that evening. The only issue I had was installing (the private labeled version?) with BETA BB DM was it would begin and state "some modules would not" function? and stopped the install. But after several various attempts I simply used the Loader.exe and all is good.

Thanks CrackBerry and enjoy all!

Still rockin the storm 1. Idk why everyone complains about the storm 1. Mine still runs great besides having to do hard resets once a day but that's just a blackberry for you. Thanks for the update.

how do you install this update... i have downloaded from above link and ran it... i opened up BB desktop software.. but i dont see how i am supposed to up date this.. thank you

So far, my visual voice mail no longer works. It prompts me for my PIN number, but the keyboard never shows up so that I can enter it. I belive that has something to do with MY SIM card. A message shows up asking me to insert my SIM card. And as you've guessed, the SIM card is in there. ANy suggestions from anyone before I go back to an older OS?


This garbage just worked great on two 9530's I have. Cleaned up some bugs, increased battery life. Why do call it garbage? Curious. Have you tested it? Nothing better to do than make unfounded comments? Please enlighten.

Didn't like this new OS. It messes up opera mini and I can't live without opera mini. Plus it seems to be a little slow and don't see any differences between .328, went back to old verizon OS. I did notice that it did give me more memory though.

Installed on two 9530's and seems to work great. May have fixed the issue with the touchscreen. I have had incorrect letters come up when touching else where on the screen. I had thought it was a hardware issue since this phone is almost two years old. Haven't had the issue since the update. We'll see if it comes back.

Hmm, sounds like enough possible problems to keep me on .699 for 10 more days (til contract END!), but definitely appreciate keeping us 9530 loyalists informed. Since .699, except for the low application memory, my Storm's been quite a reliable and usable device. Almost scared as I make the switch to Sprint/Evo 4g!

This is the 3rd OS leak for the 9530 from crackberry. Are they ever going to be fully released from RIM or where ever they come from? I'm not ungrateful, just cautious and curious.

Thanks crackberry team!

I'm new to this what do you do? Do you plug your phone into your computer and click on the link and that's it? Please help.
