    Yes -- works beautifully with .238

    Although you can do it via direct OTA install, I tried that and found the download slow. Also, it only warned me when particular COD's that had the same name but different versions conflicted. When I tried again using App World, it was a much faster download, and the entire process of replacing 4.7 with 5.0 was much cleaner, since App World recognized that all the old COD's belonged with 4.7. People have gotten it working both ways -- I just found that, in this case at least, the latest App World did a great job and made it quick and painless to replace BBM 4.7 with BBM 5.033 on my 8900 running 5.0.0.238

    Just noticed that .238 is now on the offical leaked OS list. which you can find here




    here is my list
    • BBM 5.0
      • It works with the offical release 5.0.0.33
      • Threaded SMS functionallity is avaialble
      • if you close a threaded sms chat in your BBM it doesn't close it in your messeges inbox
      • if you have a SMS chat open in BBM it will always indicate a new message while in BBM but not on the mail screen
    • Media Player
      • Works
      • if you skip ahead of a song you will not get any output via bluetooth (pauseing then resuming will get audio back)
        • This also happens if you let a song end and it goes to the next track
      • Also when i'm playing music by going to artist>album>then selecting a song. When it goes to the next song it goes to the next song in the all songs list not the album list.
    • WiFi
      • Works
      • connecting to secure networks that require login via web browser doesnt work. (same thing in 4.5)
    • Bluetooth
      • Doesn't work properly
      • would not connect to any device and couldn't access menu when bluetooth was active
        • Was able to work around this by going into my options while bluetooth was disabled and turning off all the bluetooth profiles
        • Then turn bluetooth on and delete all paired devices
        • then go back into the options and turn all the bluetooth profiles back on
        • Battery Pull
        • Repair bluetooth device
          • reason why I didnt just repair in the first place was becasue every time you tried to pair it said it was trying to reconnect right now and you had to wait till a later time
    • Blackberry App World
      • Trouble installing IM clients like Windows Live Messeneger
        • Would install then it would automatically archive
    • UI
      • Email Settings
        • Has one main GUI instead of a webpage
      • Applications
        • Moved from advanced optons to options
        • Organizes By Core, Add-ons, and third part applications
        • Apps downloaded through app world have full distctiption as to what they are
        • Search feature added
      • Media
        • Media is chagned to a folder instead of an app with music, ideo, ringer etc
        • Improved organization
          • Each catagory (artists, albums etc) tell you how many items are within it
          • Muisc now plays with album art on left side song details on right instead of alubm art on top
      • Most applications now have a find feature at the top of the page to quickly search through lists.
    So this is what I found and I hope that this helps some people out

    That was the only one I had off hand. Hopefully OS 5.0 will be out officially soon as it's really hard to find working links lately.
