Leaked OS for the BlackBerry Bold 9780
Well happy President's Day, let's celebrate with a leaked OS for the BlackBerry Bold 9780! OS appeared in the CrackBerry forums a bit ago, thanks to ALKi3. Be sure to let us know in the comments below what you think of it if you install it, and don't forget to do a backup of your device, just in case. 

*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 Bold 9780


So, it's free.
It makes your browser a lot faster.
It's something you can do while you are doing something else.
Doesn't make your OS worse.

But it's not worth it?

follow matrix leaders instructions. works like a charm. os is snappy, scrolling is smooth in browser and chats, BBM CURSOR IS WORKING!, the txt bug where it goes to middle of chat seems to be fixed. best leak so far!

ML only is not the one who solved the issue with missing cursor in BBM..he only reposting it, credit goes to DC2-Guy ..

in the leaked/beta os forum. then click the 9780 post. its on page 2 i believe. sorry for the double post. that link got cut off

I installed this OS and now my facebook app will not work. It says "you are currently on a service plan that does not support this application"

Edit: now it's fixed...I had to turn the radio on and off...that was weird.

Although I turned the radio off in the first place for UMA to kick in and it has not yet kicked in...not sure where that problem comes from..

Has anyone noticed that the VVM is gone from this leak?! It's not hidden or in another folder. Will have to add it back.

Happy Presidents Day!
But... How about showing a little love for your northern friends where RIM is located and wishing us a Happy Family Day?

I don't see a difference between this and .448 - except for losing VVM. You still can't dial from the homescreen.

First Impression: I lost my text messages icon and a couple of java modules errors at the boot time. I don't recommended it

I installed OS on Monday evening on my BB9700. I am so happy with it's operation so far. It like night and day different form OS 5.0.0 xx I was running.

100% pleased so far!
