August 26, 2009 | By | 13 Comments


Like myself I’m sure we’ve all been waiting for a new round of OS 5.0 leaks… Well today I’m proud to announce that new OS’ have been leaked for the BlackBerry Bold 9000, Curve 8900, Storm 9530 and Tour 9630!! This is the first leak we’ve seen for the BlackBerry Tour and we’ve glad its finally here. Apparently this Tour OS (.140) is old and buggy now, so as much as you might want to install it, maybe wait for a newer version. The leaked OS for the Curve 8900 and Bold (.190) are brand new and freshly released internally. Apparently .190 for both the Bold and Curve 8900 sport the new threaded SMS feature!

Follow the links below to download any of the OS versions, however please remember these OS’ have NOT been officially released by RIM. Many applications may not work on your device, it’s recommended you do a full backup before installing.

  • OS for BlackBerry Bold 9000 – Download
  • OS for BlackBerry Curve 8900 – Download
  • OS for BlackBerry Storm 9530 – Download

    I’m also thinking about trying it on my Tour… We will see how it goes.

    Thanks for the information, when do you expect they release this new version? .. i have the BB Tour. (sprint)

    Installed on my Tour mid-morning and left it restoring at lunch. Returned to find the restore had failed so I manually restored from the backup that was created. Then an Enterprise Activation started automatically (which is typical) but it would only get so far along before it would reboot. The cycle repeated itself (wirelessly) while I sat through 2 LONG meetings until it stayed up long enough for me to wipe the device (sadly – including all of my 3rd party apps). When I got back in the office, I tried again with the same results. Now I’m trying to decide whether to have them remove me and add me back to the BES so that it won’t try to restore old settings or to just go back 4.7. (Indecision may or may not be one of my problems…)

    In between reboots I can sadly confirm that the horizontal navigation with the track ball is still horrible. :-( The good news is that there is now a progress bar displayed while it boots and there really is tabbed browsing. :-)

    Perhaps someone not using a BES can upgrade and post a more favorable reply.

    Okay – After they removed and readded me to the BES I was able to do a clean activation without issues. However, Facebook isn’t compatible and it rebooted twice, once the first time I went to install Facebook and then when I was browsing Twitter. So, I’ve uninstalled the 5.0 and I’m waiting for another wipe to finish so that I can downgrade back to 4.7. Other things that were missing in this release were:
    1. Media – Music player was there and you could go to downloads and see “My Files” and plan folder outlines for the different media types
    2. individual email icons in the list appear in black and white after opening.
    3. Far fewer games and extras in the various preloaded folders.
    4. Doesn’t (or wouldn’t) boot in safe mode

    Good stuff:
    1. Tabbed browsing – seemed more solid (w/my limited use)
    2. Even though you have to prompt it to get images, you can tell it to remember your acknowledgement that it exposes your email address.
    3. More keyboard/screen options
    4. Progress bar on boot and wipe functions
    5. Message options expanded
    6. Probably more but I really didn’t get an opportunity to really experience it fully to pick up on everything.

    I’d love to see others experiences.

    Tour link is dead. Any alternatives? Thanks.

    I installed version 5.0 on my computer, however the desktop manager does not seem to detect the upgrade. Any ideas?

  • frank

    Flange design of the ugg boots sale with a X-type legs of the MM is also suitable for trouble, but differentiated for this type of MM can choose shoes with a clear outer edge decoration boots, so you can make the knee site seems more consistent with the bottom width.
