BlackBerry 7

While most of us still aren't lucky enough to have a BlackBerry Bold 9900 to call our own, there are some out there already living it up with the latest device. Here is another of only a few leaks that we've seen for the BlackBerry Bold 9900, this one in the forum of OS 7.0.0.176. Granted not many will have a chance to play around with this OS (no it won't work on your Bold 9000 or any other device) some can hopefully put it to good use. If you are a lucky Bold 9900 owner be sure to drop a comment here and let us know how it is for you, then toss the device in a box and email me for my address :-)  Thanks again!

*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). *

Adam, plz dont use that pic. People will keep asking will it run on that BB or not

Adam Zeis

I have another one coming not to worry :)

don_poky

Thanks for the replaced image :)

halasteve

Snappy, improved battery life, and...reboots under 10secs.
:D

Jimcmf

Wow.
This is fast.
I can imagine what QNX will do for it. Boot up in under 5 seconds. Snap Dragon and all. The world's fastest phone.

HavPlenty

Why won't someone just leak the device then??????? lol

ppedram

I want the 9900. How much? lol

JudasShawn

Will this work on the Playbook? I tried installing it and nuthin :(

ppedram

This is for the 9900, not playbook.

JudasShawn

I know. It was a joke. Its usually the tards that cant read titles that are asking if the Playbook updates are loadable on other devices :)

pilot-leo

I won't even waste my time responding...

DrewDT

Thank you for responding to let us all know that you won't waste your time responding. But wait...
:)

pilot-leo

Thanks for responding to me even though I was not speaking to you!

DrewDT

No problem, FYI, when you post a response on a blog you are "speaking" to all of its readers.

gravymonster

I can't believe you thought this would work on your playbook! Get a life.

On another note. Does anyone know if this will work on my 9700?

Kiddo2050

Do you have any friends? :)

jdesignz

gravy strikes again! lol

drakesaliasonline

So tell me why you were the person that thought a "PlayBook" OS would work on your "Bold" yesterday? Don't be a hypocrite. And your still asking dumb questions about Offical/leaked OS's. If it doesn't say "9700" then you can't use it! #Smdh

gravymonster

Do they really not do practical jokes where youre from?

drakesaliasonline

Didn't know it was a joke, my apologizes..

pkcable

Wouldn't most of the people with 9900, have better access to OS's than even us? ;)

mahsoud

humm I wonder if that "half-baked os pushing down carrier's throat" rumor can be confirmed yet :)

1magine

Hoping for some solid hybrids and some interesting files/vids located in here.

jdesignz

Will these work on my 9800?

*lmao*

Sorry, can't resist. =P

SteelHelmet

All I did was backing up, wiping the device with BBSAK and loading this OS on my Bold 9700!!! It runs pretty smooth, no memory leak at all, also the "This page is too large" message on the browser doesn't show up anymore when you try to load engadget.com in full site mode. BTW, battery life is excellent, now I know why Mike is so confident about a smaller battery on the 9900! Oh, almost forgot, I'm getting 4G signal as well and this build comes with a new feature in communications..."Blackberry Teleportation", which perfectly integrates with BBM 6..awesome! Gonna try to install this one on my iPod Touch and Droid Pro!

SteelHelmet

I think I just bricked my Bold 9700, any help?

fulukso

Are u serious that this os can work in 9700?

ekafara

No!! I hope you are kidding. But if not: no you can't.

aloofkid

Some changes that I notice is that:

Pros:
1. It now has BBM with voice call integrated
2. Email attachment download size increase from 2+MB to 20mb
3. I can now play FaceBook games using my native browser
4. Batter life is 36 hours with heavy constant use
5. No more lag while downloading and emailing/texting at the same time
6. Reboot time is now 5 secs max
7. BlackBerry Customer Support called me when I encountered problem with one of my application <--- she has a good voice though
8. Social Feeds now has an option which Feed will notify me which one wont.
9. YouTube for BlackBerry let's me download videos that I want to download.
10. Now support custom led light for all notification
11. Has now customized app hot keys while pressing Space button

Cons:
1. The liquid graphic interface sometimes leaks while on my pocket
2. NFS notifiaction keeps on poping out due to some code implanted on my holster
3. I saw note below that says "This is not real wake up" at About Device Version in Options

SteelHelmet

LMFAO...that was even better experience, dude!

danielcj

This is ridiculous...a leaked OS for a phone that hasn't been released yet? What the hell is RIM doing?

aloofkid

Teasing our craving or tempting our pleasures or seducing our libidos?

nfs855

My favorite of the comments so far.

Jimcmf

It's the London Hacker doing all of this.
See what happens when you don't have proper security!

ikennaezento

Downloading asap for my 9700

chetzy

Anyone managed to Extract anything...that can be used on older handsets?

bubsgoal

hmm just read Iphone 5 coming in august! Bold touch was announced in May. Really blackberry get your heads out of your a$$es and get these phones out to the carriers!

Bahrutile

Slash82

stitch69

Loaded it on the 9900 simulator. Has several themes. One for ATT one for T mobile, one for China Telecom(sp?). Has WIFI hotspot in this build too. And soduku.

i love my 9780.....but when i get my 9900 it could kick rocks...hehe

onbberry

enjoy this leak, RIMs 200 employees got their pink slips this week and that number might grow to over 2000 fast....

Kiddo2050

oooo or maybe 200000!

hmmm let me think about some other totally irrelevant negative thing I can post.

JMarshall123

is there any point in this at all, the majority of the 9900 owners are employees at rim so they've leaked a os for themselves? is it for developers or to annoy people without the phone whats going on

aloofkid

This must have something to do with the 200 people that will get layoff.

RIM: We've decided to include you with one of the people who will be terminated.

Worker: NO!!!

RIM: Don't worry we'll giving you 6 months worth of your salary after the termination.

Worker: I don't need your money! I need the job!

RIM: But wait there's more... will be giving you the unreleased Blackberry Bold 9900.

Worker: Still won't bite it.

RIM: Plus will be releasing the OS 7.0.0.176 in advance but we'll make it look like it's a leak so you can download it as soon as you got home.

Worker: Deal!

Sorry to those who got offended, no offence meant. =]

drakesaliasonline

Is it just me or are we seeing a larger number of leaked OS's for this device then we usually do? I just don't want a new iPhone to come out before a new BlackBerry and rumors are going around that the iPhone will hit in August -__- #Smh

stavros1967

You'd better hurry up Rim.The doors are closing.200 job cuts!!! They'd better get the 9900 right.Or else its bye bye. So sad.I really want the 9900!!!

Kiddo2050

I'm getting the 9900 because I dont want an i phone so iPhone 5 is a bit irrelevant. If you are thinking that this phone is going to get good reviews if it comes out before iPhone 5 forget it. There is zero chance this phone will get a good review no matter how good it is. zero.

Bahrutile

i dont think 9900/9930 will get a fare shake, but it will sell well...

Jimcmf

Gathered around a table, the 3 of us had our BB out. a 9700 a 9700 and a torch We all agreed (even the torch guy) that the 9700 was the best Phone on the market. If Bridged, did you know that you can answer your PlayBook if someone calls your BB Phone?

mssca

I think I don't need to load this leaked OS on my 9900 because I am fine with what I have now.... Don't want a buggy OS on my new 9900!

Phear

There are some of us with the 9900 and 9860 that does not have access to new builds.
Highly appreciated! Hope there's one for 9860 being leaked soon as well :)

birdman_36

I installed this on my Pearl 8100. Incredible browsing experience and very responsive. It's like a brand new phone.

mr_rim2004

anyone was able to complete the update ? i have a 9900 and i already douwnload the update and delete the vendor file but my DM6.1 dont get to recognize the new version

any help?

theKHMERboy

Hey I recently got the bold 9900, it is running os 7.0 bundle 1672 (7.0.0.353 Platform 5.0.0.544)

Reading a review from crackberry forums, this OS saves battery life most, currently running my current OS, version and such, my battery is drained like no tomorrow..

Was wondering how I could downgrade and stuff.
