Well, I tried this update several times, but so far no luck. I'm on T-Mo USA.
I removed the T-Mo theme and Vendor.xml, it loads fine and runs great. After I reboot the device (after re-installing any app from App Store) the theme goes wonky, i.e. it is back to the white screen (same as with the T-Mo theme) and I can't get it to work any more. When I check the installed CODs with BBSAK, the standard net_rim_theme_BlackBerry6_480x360_b_01 (126.96.36.1998) is still installed and is the only one on the device. I've done an upgrade as well as a clean install and keep getting the same.
I'm trying a clean install one more time, re-installing apps one at a time with a reboot each time, to see what will cause this problem. But if anyone else has already run into this or knows of a fix, I'd very much like to hear it!
Well I'm sorry that I'm not yet much help to all the members. Those that are having problems etc. I don't know enough yet, not even to point you in the right direction.
What I do know is, I'm not having any of the problems that everyones talking about.
In fact I would have to say battery life is a LOT better then the last build and maybe even better then the v5.x builds. I cant say I use it as much as others might in business environments but for everyday usage (emailing, texting, PIN and surfing the web) I have not run into any problems and no memory leaks either.
Will see how it goes over the next few days.

*EDIT* battery performance seems to have settled down (12 hrs later) with only a 5% reduction and no apparent mem leaks.

After this a quick OS6 video played after which my screen went black as if it was frozen...did a control alt delete then the Tmobile screen appeared and that is where I am currently at. Please, Please help me...for school and business purposes I can not be with out a phone and I certainly do not want to downgrade. Your help is greatly appreciated.
I am still connected via USB to my laptop. Thanks again.
I managed to get it installed. I had to use BBSAK to wipe the OS off my device. I then used loader.exe to load the OS instead of using the desktop manager. Things are looking great now. No issues so far!

On the flip side, where I have had no issues at all, others have not been able to use the hybrid at all.
I'm not saying its a crap shoot, far from it. But two BB's of the same model and OS will and do behave differently.

Folks, the download in my op should be fine now.
I have experienced a memory leak of RAM with OS 188.8.131.528, which is that the memory capacity being used by OS (not by any user's applications) increases and does not recover later on. I found that the leak can occur only when browser and/or social application related to browser is used. The memory of RAM will not be back the initial amount, which is 203MB-210MB, by any applied methods, except a battery pull or running quickpull v5 or the device, on emergency, closes itself opening browsers and running applications (followed a alert that the page is too large...) that will reset the OS back to the initial status. If I close the browsers or stop the applications by myself the memory of RAM just can be back at a stable value about 258.3MB-258.4MB which allow me to do very few tasks, for example open about 5 websites pages or refresh 5 times for a website page.
Perhaps, the solution to do more tasks will be how we can reduce the above stable value of memory on the device or we can make slower increase in the memory capacity being used by OS. Any ideas to do so?
BB bold 9700 T-mobile, Os 184.108.40.2068
Mine loads awfully alot when i view BBM and WLM contactpictures,
Other than that
It works fine
Please i'll like to know if there is still a memory leak on this version like the .344
Yes there is still a memory leak. A few minutes ago I was at 15.8MB, now I'm at 16.6MB memory loss. These are my apps below. Also it's important to note that today I haven't used the phone a lot except for a quick call. In general I would consider myself a moderately high user. I usually don't have to do a batt pull or reboot throughout the day but by the end of the day I'm at a 35MB memory loss.
- 7 Digital
- App World
- BB Maps
- BB Podcasts
- BB Traffic
- BN Ereader
- Docs to Go 2.0
- Driphter Mobile Launcher
- FileScout Lite
- Google Maps 4.5.1
- Memory Booster (this came w/ the OS and I did see a difference when I installed it. Still a leak, but a little less than w/o using it)
- Noah Bible Study
- nux_com OTA Downloader (I forgot I had this on there! Doing this is like finding change in the couch! lol)
- PDF to Go (part of docs to go)
- QuickPull 5 (if you use QP and don't have this...get it! QuickPull for BlackBerry by Steelthorn Software)
- Quick Pull Lib (necessary for QP)
- QuickPull Rebooter (also necessary)
- Mobihand Superstore
- White Noise
- Wireless music sync
- Word Search
With all this loaded after a quick pull I have 60 MB and my boot up is about 2 min and 20 secs.
yeah, yeah, yeah...I need to trim down these apps. At one point when I was on the 9000 I had about 51 apps. PLUS in the list above we should really not count the QP modules. It isn't like I intentionally loaded them. Plus I've gotten rid of a couple #dontjudgeme. LOL. oh craps! i forgot to load Collapse Chaos! oh the horror of it all!
hi, i was trying to install os6 and reaches problem as following: most of apps installed before on os5 now refuse to run on os6, BDM6 refuse to restore backup of contacts and settings. so my conclusion about os6 is - to early to try it, looks nice , but so many bugs inside. thanks

I'll list them.
-Memory Leak (sometimes returns)
-Video Recorder won't work
-As i said WLM and BBM pictures load to much
-Youtube doesn't work (anymore)
-Camera doesn't apply to it's settings.
-Profile doesn't apply to it's settings.
Other then that i would like a Silence profile ,not just on Vibrate.
My battery life seems to be improved
When i get up at 7:30 it used to be already dead at 14:00 (Same with my other BB)
Now i can use it all day without any trouble.
EDIT 2: I now hat 92 MB all of the sudden ,yesterday it still was 46. I downloaded Memory Boost ,hope it will work :)
you may have to go to the vendor site and re-download the app. what specific app is not working on OS6? as you can see, i was able to get all of the ones listed above to work.

I reinstalled my o.s ,and it works much better now
- Memory leak = GONE!
- BBM / WLM Pictures now load good
I now got a new issue ,somethimes my BB just freezes out of nowhere.
It's mostly not to long maybe 1 minute or so. (Never needed battery pull for it)
And i've been rocking SocialFeeds :banana:
Work great with my 9700. I love it.
Install direct from AppLoader folder and it update succesfull. Not work for the first update from BB Desktop. I downgrade to OS 220.127.116.113 and download the OS 18.104.22.1688 one more time.
