    BBM 5.0 and leaked OS 5.0.0.140 SOLUTION

    I am posting this here in its own thread because I think that it is a significant issue. Please follow these directions very carefully and you will restore your Blackberry Messenger.

    1) Do not attempt to delete any of your old BBM files (not necessary)
    2) Do go to this link from StormOTA and download using your blackberry browser.
    3) After install perform a battery pull.

    No pictures necessary for this. Good Luck.

    I loaded 5.0 without bbm, then once I put all my backup files and reloaded my apps, I came to this thread on my phone and downloaded OTA. Worked like a charm! This should be your last step after upgrading to 5.0 OS.

    The file downloads as a zip file. Then you have to use the password raysource to unlock it.

    no no no no no... i got the OS 5.0 to load just fine, i'm having problems getting the BBM back on!!!

    i've loaded it up with the older 4.7 version of bbm and tried the ota 5.0 update but no go, the phone claims its on the app list but i cant find any way to get the bugger to run

    Try removing BBM from your phone then load the OTA. I have heard this as a solution. Make sure you have a back up of your contacts first.

    So it shows BBM 5 in your app list but you can't get it to open? Have you tried a good ole battery pull
