Tired of Waiting for Verizon to Make 5.0 Official? We Got It. Leaked: OS 5.0.0.328 (and .327) for the BlackBerry Storm 9530!

OS 5.0.0.327 and OS 5.0.0.328 for the BlackBerry Storm 9530

* Update 3: LOL.. that was fun for 24 minutes. LOOKS LIKE THE OFFICIAL IS UP! Check your Desktop Manager Software! *

* Update 2: Looks like megaupload is letting the file download again... keep tabs on the comments in case the link doesn't work for you anymore *

* Update: wow... looks like megaupload has some sort of attack system in place.  The .238 file got 243 downloads in about 30 seconds, and I think we must have tripped some sort of hacker attack alert as they've temporarily suspended the file (it's still in the account). Watch the comments below for download mirrors. *

So it's Sunday night, October 25th, and we know BlackBerry Storm 9530 owners are sitting on CrackBerry by the thousands waiting for Verizon to officially release OS 5.0.0.32x for the BlackBerry Storm 9530. Leaked info leading up to the this official release has been kind of weird... sometimes stating the official version would be 5.0.0.323 (which we already leaked the other day) and other times stating .328. Some info put the push at 7pm EST tonight, which has passed, the change log puts it at 10pm EST (any minute now) so in true CrackBerry fashion we've dug up the goods for you so you can get a head start. At the link below we've actually got two newer 5.0 builds... 5.0.0.327 and 5.0.0.328. They're both running the same platform version (4.2.0.128) so are likely near identical, so it's probably best to go for .328 but you can try them both out if you like.

The official Verizon release should drop any minute or hour now, so even hardcore Stormies shouldn't feel bad if at this point they want to hold out for the update to come through BDM. But if you want it now, you can grab the latest and greatest below!

so happy, want to touch the hiney!

neechi

Now your powerful Ninjas need to dig up the latest stuff for the other devices...I'd like to request 8330! :)

Happy installing Storm users!

richiesullivan#CB

I love CB. Cant get enough!

Bugeyeblue

Will it work for the tour?

Kevin Michaluk

Storm 9530 ONLY.  firmware is device dependent. not a one OS fits all.

dreedy1

Kevin....any offical or projected word yet on the OS 5.0 update for the Tour on VZW?

karlac

Thank you very much!! :)

aim4squirrels

Loud Mouth

Makisupa

Definitely tired of waiting..

superlark

Awesome!!

All hail the mighty Crackberry! Now I wont have to dig up the OS folder that DM creates :D

Neotide87#CB

Its says not available temporary on Megaupload and what is diff between .327 and .328?

Jared DiPane

To those downloading this, please be kind, and create a mirror of it for others :)

Mad-Scientist

Thanks Crackberry! .328 link down... anyone have a mirror?

77rramos

Says file not available...

mklear

Does anyone have a review of this update for the Storm and how it will make text input easier/better? I switched from the curve a month ago, and I hate typing on the storm. I am a business user and made the crucial mistake switching to the storm. Think I will be going to the tour soon if this update doesnt help. Or the DROID. Hopefully this makes typing easier.

dvlmn

i cant DL 328 it says unavailable i think we overloaded megaupload lol

Camel_Back

Says it's temporarily not available.

boman06210

sez its temporarily unavailable!? and whats the diff between the two?

92slammer

The file you are trying to access is temporarily unavailable.

Kevin Michaluk

Kevin Michaluk

hmm.. never mind. we overwhelmed megaupload.  can access it when logged into the account but not when logged out.

rip14

I got it to work. Just had to refresh a few times

ds28

i know Storm owners have waited forever, but how about some Tour love too?!?

lxplaya1

Nathan79

Just be patient, there's a lot of people trying to get this file. close the page and try the link again.. Worked for me.. im 15% through the download already.

Happy_Killmore

TootNBerry

Hybrid4830

downloading the 328 now. first half of the download it was steady at 1mb/sec but then slowed down to about 300 kb/sec

karlac

Keep getting an error message that "another installation is in progress" and then the install error message loops. Nothing else running ... hmmmm, corrupt download from Megauploaud??

Sure sounds like it ...

karlac

First download was obviously corrupted. Now loaded up and running on Storm. So far, so good.

Emtronics

Duped again. After 9pm CDT and no upgrade. I figured as much. Goodnight as I have a real job that starts at 4am and I am done waiting on Verizon to fart. Thanks CB for the leaked links.

crackaberrrry

Nathan79

Almost done installing here... Anyone know what improvements there are over .323?

californiablackberry

does anyone know how long this could take to complete?

Nathan79

Normally it takes 20-30 mins.

Nathan79

I just downloaded .328 from the verizon site, and its much quicker than the mega upload links...

flashajt

My DM isnt auto updating, finding nothing when I click check for updates. Thanks debben for posting the Verizon link to manually grab the update!

http://vzw.smithmicro.com/blackberry/

Downloading now - kudos!

boman06210

i'm doin the DM update, its taking forever

Nathan79

for those who aren't with verizon, you have to delete the vendor.xml file in the /commonfiles/researchinmotion/apploader directory. It also helps to disconnect your net before turing on Desktop Manager. Im on telus, and it recognized the update right away... But i uninstalled the previous 5.0.323 software first.

JazzL5

Cool!! A default Today theme, Visual Voice Mail icon, flick scrolling, nice.

Had to dl App World and BBM 5.0 again though.

TaZ52083

Man i cant wait to mess with it still downloading.

spgthd1

Just got the Verizon OS 5.0.0.328 upgrade and now my text messages wont work. When I try to select the SMS/MMS tab, I get an error message: Uncaught Exception: java.lang.nullpointerexception.

Please help!!!!

chinoxs203

try a battery pull should fix it.

now ATT get on it with the 8900!

drmrjake

So whats the difference tween the 2? .327 and .328??

NoKittyNo

101 COMMENTOR,..DISNEY lives in me. Lmao, jk, sorry no spam intended.

meat1968

just downloaded it and OMG they finally added more than just one count to the ringtones for the messages!!!!!!!!!
Not bad so far faster and badass how the different screens appear.

JDOGG67

I downloading/updating the OS 5.0 for my Blackberry Storm 9530 using BBDM and it's just hanging. It says it's downloaded 47 modules of 354 and it's been stuck there for 20 minutes. Is this anything I need to be worried about or does it just take a while to update/install? Should I stop the current download/update and try running it again? Any help would be awesome guys. Thanks!

JDOGG

kinshuk234

Any news on 5.0 OS for 9500 or a better leak than .216?

Vodafone testing 5.0 for 9500 or are they busy strategizing for 9520?

BBStormUser31

that the official is out lets hope this goes well

Bristolian

Dont suppose this update works on the 9500. my wifey has the 9500 and continually whining about it.....

Bristolian

p.s... she wants my bold...

I upgraded my storm to the new os and for some reason it deleted some of my apps and some dont work as well as before so iam downgrading back to the one i had before.And I am going to try to upgrade again and see if this time works better.But i do like the new changes of the new os... wish me luck

Mark A.

I've been running this OS now for a few days, and these are my preliminary findings:

* Major speed improvement over the previous official VZW OS
* The fade in/fade out windows are very cool
* threaded SMS is nice
* upgrading the OS luckily didn't break a lot of things. Yeah, Facebook and a bunch of other apps needed to be re-installed, but none of my paid-for apps took a hit. BBM apparently is installed, but I can't find the icon anywhere.
* My 3GStormV1 theme doesn't display correctly in landscape mode (big white bars on both edges), but ...

overall, I'm quite happy with this OS upgrade. Now I feel I can wait a little longer before I upgrade to the Storm2.
