    Installing 5.0.0.191. Will it have BBM 5.0?

    I have a BBCrackman hybrid installed. I had the BBM 5.0 leak. When I ran Loader.exe for 5.0.0.191, in the list of applications to keep/remove, the BBM 5.0 leak was there, and I unchecked it, hoping that the .191 will contain a version of BBM. Did I do the right thing, or will I end up with no BBM now? It is taking a long time to install .191 and I want to get the ball rolling on restoring BBM if it is going to be absent.

    Sorry. I found that info in the meantime. I understand that it is incompatible. Threaded SMS is really what I'm looking for by installing .191 anyhow. I was concerned about BBM because I've read about BBM 5 supporting threaded SMS. With OS 4.7, BBM 5 sure didn't seem to support threaded SMS. Now I don't care about BBM 5.0 since it sounds like the threaded SMS is a native OS 5.0 feature.

    Is there no BBM 4.7 OTA? If not, can I install BBM 4.7 through loader.exe, if it pops up in the list of applications? I don't have Desktop Manager and do not want to install it on the PC I am using.

    You should be able to install through loader as it comes bundled with
    .191. If for some reason you can't here is a link to all the OTA's including 4.7

    There are a lot of BBM 5.0 downloads there. None of them work on 9530 with 5.0.0.191 though huh? I installed BBM 4.7 through loader, thanks.

    Yep unfortunately you will need a higher build of BBM5 to work on the 5.0 OS. It is out there but not leaked as of yet

    OK Since I am behind the 8 ball, I was unaware of the RIM internal tools issue. If I remove "battery log" and "quincy" from my Storm, is that all the internal tools? Or, should I uninstall RIM internal tools from Windows and reload 5.0.0.191?

    I can't remove the internal apps directly from the device, so I uninstalled them from Windows and ran loader. It worked. Thanks for the help with BBM.
