OS 6.0.0.246 Torch 9800

Well, after seeing other devices get updated to .448, I guess the BlackBerry Torch had to have get it as well. Good thing, considering OS 6.0.0.337 is pretty old as of now. Torch users give 6.0.0.448 a go, be sure to drop a comment and let us know how it is. As always, use caution when installing a leaked OS.

*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).

Hopefully this fixes the on screen keyboard glitch while on the browser that a few of us have experienced.

I'll give it a go when I get home, depending on the feed back.

And yes this is a lesson. U looking it up will only make you a better person. Who isn't asking the same question thousands of people have asked again and again. No ur not the first. You would know that if you searched the site. :-) don't hate me. Just letting you know

luqman24

ElChe1988

nolhayes

I need more feedback. This 6.0.0.337 os has been good to me.

SashaNemets

well, nothing major has changed, i think autofocus did and bookmarks in browsing. looks smooth thou for sure))

jpkirkpa

Certainly hope this release is stable enough for AT&T to release it officially. Can't update on my Mac, and would love for it to drop.

AjStone

Does anybody know if it fixes the icons disappearing from Favorites tab issue?

deeptali

WellOS loading is Very fast and browser speed has improved it seems. What ever mentioned earlier is there of course like Book marks etc.

IsaacKendall

It appears that the Gmail icon issue has gone away with this build.

In previous builds if you have multiple Gmail accounts setup through BIS and you selectively hide on or more of the account icons, ALL of the icons hide themselves.

In this build I've hidden 2 of the 5 GMail accounts and the 3 I want to see are still visible. For me that makes this build the winner-winner-chicken-dinner.

My browser issue with holding links for new tabs is FIXED!!!!!
WhoooT! I was 2 releases behind becuase of this issue. This was my only issue with the phone and now I'm good to go.

Chas71

No Problems as of yet. It did increase my application memory back up to 294.1 from 285. As far as I'm concerned that's a plus.

cwoodffr

pop up letters on virtual keyboard are bigger
visual copy and paste icons in the menus beside the words (first time graphics have been in the menu structure)

naiemb
