OS has leaked for the BlackBerry Torch 9810. This is an unofficial (leaked) OS, so while it's mostly safe to install, remember to use caution when updating your device. If you need help along the way, you can head into our help forums or check out some of our BlackBerry 101 articles including How to Install or Upgrade to a new OS or How to Upgrade Your BlackBerry OS Using App Loader. If you do install this OS, hit up the forums thread below for findings, fixes and more discussion.

*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 9810


The last time i did an unnoficial OS someone hacked into all my emails and fb, about one hr after it was running smoothly. Never happened before... It was a pain in the @ss to change my emails. I rather wait for an official update... i

Thanks chrda! Speedy download. Will install over the weekend. Any new benefits from this download? How's much space is available after the install?


Using vodafone uk and hotspot seems to be working. All in all everything is working fine and had no problems.

I'm hearing bad things about this build. I've tried it out myself,and my Torch seems to freeze up more often.Icons have changed a bit. Touch screen has become less responsive. Also the wireless service seems to be slower.Switching back to the .342 build,much better and more solid.

The last few leaks and builds from carriers other than my own, I've gone through the normal download, install, delete vendor.xml file from Program Files (x86) / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader. However, when I open Blackberry Desktop and click Update, I'm getting a message that no updates are available. Anyone have suggestions? This was the same process that I've followed for all updates previously.

Diamondvargas....I had the same issue a few weeks ago, make sure there is a active SIM card in the phone that you are updating or it will not work.

ALSO, search the computer for the VENDOR.XML file, search all hidden files and folders, I had one that was hidden somewhere, once I had deleted it everything worked fine!

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling everything several times, very frustrating.


Dale, thanks so much for the quick feedback and for the great idea. Sure enough, another vendor.xml file was saved elsewhere on my computer. Deleted it, loaded up the desktop software, connected Blackberry and updating as I type. Thanks again!

Light speed downloaded from OnCDN (2MBps, 10 concurrent connections).

Testing on jailbreak'd AT&T, using Telecom Personal (Argentina) carrier. Desktop Manager recognized the new OS as recommended, cleanly installed, contacts and wifi spots restored from BB Protect, e-mail service books from carrier page sent and working.
All apps from Appworld (free and paid) restored seamlessly. Small improvement in battery life.
NEW TO ME: Media Server. Need further testing of this feature.
Overall remarks: Device much faster, not totally sure if because of formatting to new, or OS capabilities.

What is the story on the Access Point in this. I have ATT with Tethering and it work with the which is the latest one available directly from Blackberry.

I read something about the AP not working on these later leaked versions. Is that in the OS or because one does not have the proper data plan with the carrier?

Torch 9810 7.1.0258 on AT&T
Playbook 64 with OS2.0.1.358

On Rogers in Ottawa. Upgraded to 2 days ago and Mobile hotspot works great. Zero issues. I also noticed that the OS just seemed snappier in general, which was a nice chance. No "New" features as far as I can tell, same as the last version. Files server works good too. Web browsing seems a little better and battery life looks to be about the same or slightly better as the previous version. Hard to tell after only 2 days of testing.

I would recommend this upgrade! :)
