Bold 9700

We can't really call this a leak, then again we can't call it official, but OS 5.0.0.321 for the Bold 9700 is indeed available for download. The download link popped up in the forums, so get it while its hot. This is the OS that will be installed on the Rogers devices, but its not available on their site just yet. If you're looking to get ahead of the game while you wait for your new toy to arrive, then go grab it!

why on such a new device?

verseman

I have a Blackberry 9700, T-Mobile edition and it has v5.0.0.330 so not sure how advanced this is, if it had a lower number than the T-Mobile version.

quailallstar

I think this is the same version the T-Mobile version is shipping with.

WorldRallyX

What's the point if the os already is on the phone? Does this work on a bold 9000 or something?

vins_666

Does this OS work on 9500???

ALCie

This is the OS that the Bell 9700 has. Just checked at our launch party =D.

murphdsurf

Does any one know if would this work on the 9000 bold??

WorldRallyX

That's what I'm trying to figure out

trafsta

99.99% sure it would not work on a Bold 9000

vins_666

Does the OS work on Storm?

bluemax413

Why would it? You're talking about applying an OS from a non touch screen device to a touch screen device. Let me know how that works for you.

jav3lin

when the 9700 ships with this version?

Khazm2k

That's the OS that it comes with! Didn't turn the Bold 9000 on! Didn't interest me! :)

Ok I'm a owner of a bb curve 8310 got it chritsmas( waitin to get a 9700 AT&T ) along with my iPod touch which I am on now I'm my algebra class on my touch. But a few things tht rim could add as a software update is
1.) like the iPhone and the palm phone, it would be great if the added the feature that tells u that u have a text and wat it says while ur browsing the web or listening to music or on a phone call ect.. I kinda get tired of backing out of what u was doing to go to my text...
2.) I'm not sure if the 5.0 software dies this or not but " conversation view " another feature the iPhone and palms have. Tht would be nice for both texting and email...
3.) for the mstorm and possible thunder. For u to be able to lock the click screen and not click it, to just let u be able to tap away at the screen like u do on a iPhone
copy and paste this to other comments and add ur sugestions btw i'm 15 :). These are some great features if u have any thoughts please do tell...

mungera

Why would we copy and paste this anywhere? Does your iPhone not have that capability? :)
And what is the thunder? Why would you want to be able to beat away at your screen?
The new 5.0 does have threaded sms. There are some 3rd party apps you can download so that it gives a popup of a new message. peekawho is one. Make a post in the 3rd party apps forum if you have more questions. you'll get more responses than putting a random, irrelevant post on a blog topic.

Phongables

this works on my BOLD 9000 !!!!

dipsettt

After reading your comment, I tried installing this on my 8900.... WTF it actually works.... didnt know this was possible...

ALCie

It also works on the iPhone! I swear!

Synic

Do you actually expect people to believe that lol? or anyone else for that matter claiming this OS (specifically the one in the original post) works on any phone other than the 9700 haha?

I got a laugh out of it I guess

Wizzkidd09

yes...please elaborate.

murphdsurf

Can someone that got this OS working on their 9000 Bold upload a pic to show that it works??

merkyone

it doesn't. they can't. so they won't.

iLovemy_bb

...I want a bold 9700...ans since I'm on T-Mobile I'm going to con them into giving me one for free...(muahhhahahaha) <<

pks

Link is dead already lol

timtynes

any alternate links??

pks

Check 9700 subforum. There's a RS link there.

dcrystal

Any release for the 9000????

timtynes

pls elaborate or post link thanks :)

timtynes

no release for 9000 so far but my sister got OS 5.0.0.321 working on her bold.

Jkilla

amazing! works on my nokia 3310! Finally I can retire snakes for brickbreaker

timtynes

yeah right and beyonce had the best video of all time riiight ;)

p_squaler12

i think that upgrading your OS fucks everything up. on my storm it just made the OS slower than the original OS and everyone i talk to that didnt update their OS had no problems with their phones

hoosercub

Correct, because .65 ran Soooo much faster last year than anything after it on my Storm1 numbers 1-2-3 and 4..

hoosercub

Why is this posted lol..

I'd much rather have checked CB today and saw a new, solid 5.0 leak/release for my Tour.. still on .230 and not budgin til its official or damn near it!

Papa Shango

That's why I prefer not to buy new devices immediately after release/ If the oS is updated so quickly, who can guarantee that the firmware itself is not stable either? long distance moving companies - moving companies
