One more for the road! Curve 9300 users get another update as well as those with the Bold 9700. OS is the latest leak, so do what you do and get to installing. Be sure to leave a comment here or swing by the forums with your findings. As usual - use caution when installing any 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). *

Leaked OS for the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and Curve 3G 9300


hmm...this OS version downgraded BB Messenger and the Email setup program (TMO). However, when I launched the email setup program on the BB, it immediately showed an update was available.

how is the memory leak? I am downloading now as i am running the AT&T official that came out recently and the memory leak is simply awful. Battery pull at least once or twice a day.

Battery life a lot better,starts up faster,feels smoother not faster when scrolling through menues,that's about all I've noticed. Hope this helps

this one seems pretty bad IMO
rebooting takes over 5 minutes, clock A LOT, and generally slower all the way around. i'm rolling back

Bn having difficulty downloading the OS from filefactory and fileserve, cud someone1 kindly help with another download link n site pls...
Sumthin else: I'v bn having problems with my browser, it sort of freezes n causes my bb to restart - I'v tried formattin with jlcmder n re-installing OS bt still av the same trouble - any help wud be appreciated...

So far I tried all the leaks possible, and I thinks until now the is the best, not great, but the best so far. In this one ( I've experienced the following:
-the battery is dead in half day, I even bought a car charger for the first time
- I use a lot the brwoser and it looses conection all the tiem, even in WiFi, I have to close the browser and start again. Also in pages that are ooptimized for mobile devices, I get the page to large top load error, that in the .448 I didn't had
- the memory goes down much faster than in other versions, and in this instalation I shrinked the OS more than in the past.
- the waiting clock appears all the time, no matter what small app I'm using, native or not
- the option on check updates never finishes checking
- I does some weird things like in the top menu where you see if your alarm is set or not, sometimes shows the tiem that is set and sometimes not.
- I instaled the same version of BBM that I used before, (I think the 6.0.47) and in this OS does wierd things, like not showing the message until I start writing a response, or shows the message but not the space where you write.
This are some of the things I remember happened, if I find something else, I would comment again.
I hope this helps to the people that is not sure to install or not this leak.
