BlackBerry Bold 9700 OS 184.108.40.2068 Leaked
Well, here it is folks, 220.127.116.118. I will be giving this a spin (am downloading it as I type this), and will be giving my take on it in a few days. Now some may be wondering if this leak will be as buggy as the leak from a few weeks ago, just remember, RIM probably reads the blogs out here. I would if I were RIM, so expect a few fixes.
Download OS 18.104.22.1688 for the BlackBerry Bold 9700:
Warning: Please remember that this IS NOT an official release OS. If you wish to install this OS keep in mind that this may cause your phone to not function correctly. BlackberryOS and any other BlackberryOS Official sites are not responsible. If you are not comfortable and/or unsure as how to upgrade to this OS, please click the link below.

I'm on it...........
gonna install the regular way, no wipe. Should work as this is a 6 and my phone has 6 on it........oceanghost
Downloaded, will report back in a few days.
EDIT: adperdue's zipfile is saying "corrupt file". Downloading Vecharos now.
Q: Where do these "leaked" copies come from? You guys going through RIMs ftp servers or? lol just wondering how these things get into the "wild". I don't have a problem with companies releasing alphas/betas for testing. Just wondering thats all.
EDIT2: Is there a change log? I'm guessing I'm asking for to much here....

Did a clean install. Everything is running well. Seems no problems with some basic testing, emails, sms, web.
Will be back in a while.

I'm not sure how BBOS handles private sharing, but I'm uploading to my website atm (never use it or the bandwidth it comes with). Will post here in a bit.

*UPDATE* - After having used 75GB of the 60GB a month plan I have had to pull the update. I've upgraded my plan and and will re-upload the file. New future should be able to support.

With the newest 5.0 it took 5 to 6 days to run on empty, now within 2 days its empty.
Just hope they release the official OS6 soon. Rather have a good original then a high leaked one with some issues...
Wont put back my back up after updating. Not the recent ones or any other back ups :S
Now Ill have to get all my stuff back in a different way, this bites
So far youtube its not working at all neither the app or straight from the webpage!!!
I can't browse wit my bb browser on this release...any fix that can help
I'm not getting any of the above problems. Youtube works (from the browser, or app seeing it just loads the browser), I was able to restore all my data/apps. I don't have a memory leak (well not after 24hrs anyways).

Ill post again in a few days.
guys if i do an upgrade (fresh install or simple upgrade) do i need to reactivate BES or will it automatically download BES config?
I did get some 602 errors last week - http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/dynam...C&kcId=KB23950
p.s. rim on .344 i cant scroll right and left in calendar day view.

Trying to install this one and I'm getting an error message when I try to update the device. I get to the screen where you backup and add your email if you want updates etc... I click install and a message that says there was an error updating your device. One or modules could not be resolved. I have done a full wipe of the device and I get the same error. I'm upgradeing from 22.214.171.1244. Anyone else seeing this?
O/s 6.0.0 .358
Did a wipe and install from .344. working smoothly, however battery life seems to be not good. Battery down from 95% to 85% in a couple of minutes with minimal use, I did do three reboots- don't know if that had anything to do with it. Memory is better ended up 93.+ MB from 79MB with same apps. Browser is slow, love the tabbed browsing but slow.
Email and BBM and SMS good so far.
Another issue - cannot sort address book by first name.
*EDIT* Browser is pretty quick on Wi-Fi, will continue to monitor battery usage, seems pretty week right now, down to 75% in 20 mins
