Leaked OS for the BlackBerry Torch 9800

BlackBerry 6

Yesterday we saw OS leak for the Bold 9780 and now it has appeared for the Torch 9800 as well. This one freshly leaked so no reports on whats good just yet, so if you install be sure to swing by the forums with your findings. As usual, be careful when updating your device and be sure to make a backup before loading this one up. Thanks, Ryo-Kun!

*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 Torch 9800


I just started using facebook 2.0 if I install this using app loader will fb 2.0 still be there after the update? Thanks

Can someone let us know what is different, better or worse in this update so that i don't have to reinstall FaceBook, UberTwitter, Social Scope, WifiComrade, ScoreMobile and Quickpull?

Quickpull, save time and money: alt shift delete. But I almost never have to do this anymore on my Torch even running the original 6.0

So when I downloaded 526. My bbmaps stopped working (internal error) I am wondering if it works using bbmaps launcher with 536...any one have any insight. Because I had to revert to 4XX version so they could work...

BB Maps has always been working for me on every single OS I've used on ATT. I have the ribbon launcher downloaded and it works just fine. ATT is sneaky about it... But trust me, you can get it to work..

I found that official bbmaps icon hasn't disappeared sincei got .526. deleated and reinstalled maps had it since leak hide the launcher cause no need now.

526 was buggy for me with my gmail. If I opened an email immediately after receiving one it would close the program and send me back to the homescreen. It's still doing that so hopefully this fixes it.

Don't worry about ATT not having an upgrade. Just download a leak or an official leak. I'm on att and am on .526 and it works fine. The only difference between a leak and official is if your carrier decides to issue it. Both are RIMM builds for your Torch. Don't be Limited by your carrier. Live in the Today zone. :-)

Hopefully this will be better than the last leak. The last one just didn't work for me - battery drain, random hourglass, slow, etc.

your just as bad as other people. why dont you either try it out and see for yourself or pipe down and wait. its not an instant thing people have to test it out.

lol well thats exactly what i did! i jus got tired of all the useless crap!
coming from .526 (which i found the camera app to be a lil buggy with delays wen scrolling thru recently taken pics) fixed! with .534 seems just as smooth and crisp as the previous leaks imho. maybe a lil faster...testing the battery life seems about the same...oh reboot DEFINATELY faster! noticably so!! cudos to RIM for that one!

Just installed it, no noticable differences yet, but the torch seems to boot faster now, and when connecting through USB it seems to ttake longer to recognise the device.

@crackberry does "pulling your battery" have the same effect as restarting your BB after uninstalling/installing an application? Pls answer. I have a case on my blackberry and it is really hard to take off so, I just install and uninstall an app to restart my blackberry. I do this so the OS can get used to the battery life.

I installed it and will let you know what had been improved.

i dont know but theres a program called quickpull and that does the same thing as what a battery pull would do!

Just hit alt, right shift key, and delete at the same time and that will reboot your BB, its the same thing as rebooting when you uninstall an app

No noticeable differences on this version. The phone runs pretty snappy, then only thing I don't like is i had to put in my keycode again for FaceBook 2.0. I can copy it from the email but it won't paste into the Keycode Field, so I had to manually type it in there and it is very very very long!!!!!

In the BlackBerry Beta Zone, when you go to download the Facebook 2.0 app, there's a section with large red text that reads: **Important Note - READ FIRST**

Note: If you cannot Paste the keycode into the EULA using the BlackBerry menu button, then please try holding down the trackpad and utilize the ‘Paste’ option from the pop-up screen.

This OS seems pretty good. The only difference I see are when you pull down the notification bar it shows a preview of your text messages and the frequent tab holds 4 more icons.

The only thing I've noticed different about .534 is that I keep getting an "error" message while playing YouTube videos with the media player.
Anybody else having that problem?

Has anyone else noticed that this leak and the leak prior has a change with the smileys? They look smaller and non-"cripsy" lol.

I noticed my font size was smaller so the smileys shrunk as well. I put it back to size 8 and they're normal again !
