BlackBerry 7 Leak

Got a new BlackBerry Torch 9850 or 9860, you've not been left out. Grab your USB cable and give OS just like all the cool kids. While we're not exactly sure what has changed in this update, it's new and we like new things. As always, make sure you back up your data first and heed the warning below.

*OS Disclaimer - Please Read: Keep in mind this is NOT a.n 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 9850 & 9860


Well, Im back to RIM after a few years w/ Android, took the plunge on a new Torch 9850 on Sprint. I just thought it was the nicer of the two devices (Vs Bold) & I already have a Curve w/ a physical keypad for work through VZW. Will let you know how it goes!

UPDATE: The 'new' OS was buggy & had some lag to it, especially w/ notifications & beta apps. The stock OS is much more stable. Stick w/ that :-)

Everytime I try to download the file for the 9850, Norton tells me its a bad file and deletes it, anyone else having this problem?
