    i have bbm 5.0 working on this release. you need the official rim release and before downloading choose allow for all application permissions. i used wifi for this because im too lazy to do the browser fix kuz i never use it. You can use your blackberry homepage to get the official release if your carrier doesnt have the upgrade bbm service book yet

    1. back your phone up, everything
    2. download the 5.0.0.XXX software
    3. install .exe and delete vendor.xml
    4. download bbsak and wipe device
    5. load OS from button in bbsak, do not select bbm, its old, DON'T USE DM
    6. allow OS to load and restore backup file, do the browser fix (at&t(if you don't have at&t i don't think you have to)if you do have them google att browser fix)
    7. re-install apps INDIVIDUALLY, i've had great success with this, in fact everything is working amazingly, but i had problems upon attempting to do it with 3rd party restore options.
    8. install app world, theres a link for working app world at BBHybrids - Blackberry Hybrids
    9. install facebook, AIM, MSN, etc from app world, it'll install the working 5.0 compatible version.
    10. install BBM 5 from app world, i originally installed overtop of 4.7 and felt like it ripped me off of some free app memory that way, so i wiped and re-did everything THIS WAY and it gave me 12MB more free space.

    apps i have working up to 5.0.0.238 on BOLD:
    Beejive v.1.1.2 (make sure all permissions set to "ALLOW")
    Google Maps 3.0.2
    Nintaii 1.4
    Pandora 1.1.1.1
    Quicklaunch 2.12.3
    WeatherBug WITH homescreen update 1.0.0.325 (this could be updating for me due to my theme, some people say its not working, but i imported the 8900's default theme, and it works fine for me)
    Facebook 1.6.0.22
    Flickr 1.0.1.10
    i've re-loaded this OS 3 times now, and its finally PERFECT now following the steps above, p.s. don't use ubertwitter, browser is working expediently, and i haven't experienced a media bug AT ALL, all media plays fine, song after song after song.
    I dont backup/restore any settings when doing a new OS... I already knew this, and I use google sync to restore contacts which is about the only thing I care about on my BB at any one time.

    I must have a problem with either service books, or ATT.

    Thumbs up Stable and Fast

    Upgraded 2 days ago from 297 Hybrid. No problems during process except phone hung during restore process. I unplugged USB and pulled battery then hooked up again and process finished. Blazing fast browser. Decent battery life. Available memory is slightly lower than Hybrid I was using. Two problems noticed: 1. Had to do browser fix because I am on AT&T. Used Google to search for this and it is easily taken care of and fixed. 2. Voice Activated Dialing did not work. This did work on 5.0.190. Workaround for this is to download both 238 and 190 to your computer and copy all VAD files from Java folder on 190 to 238. Then delete 190 and run apploader again. I love the new threaded SMS. With these workarounds (AT&T) this is the best OS I haved used. Looking forward to official 5.0 release soon.

    from the sounds of your post it would seem as though the next os after this one will close up just about every issue and at last a truely great os will have been made by rim.
