OS has leaked for the BlackBerry Torch 9860. 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 9860


RIM stopped making them, every carrier has stopped carrying this phone. Most under rated BlackBerry of all times. It's NOT a bad touch screen phone and the ergonomics on this device are brilliant - best phone ever to hold in landscape. But due to absolutely zero marketing, and Torch branding, this phone flew under the consumer radar and didn't sell. In my opinion, the 9860 was the first good touch screen phone from RIM.

Sweet - Downloading now!!

I'm still here; rocking my leaked 7.1 Rogers Scorch (ahem - Torch, a.k.a. Storm..) ;)

just updated to .714 and its the best leak for the 9860 to date. fast. stable. just plain sexy. im very pleased to show off my phone to my iphone 4s friends cause yeah sure they have some more apps but my phone just works better than theirs and its awesome!!!!! cant wait for BB10.
