Leaked Bold 9700 184.108.40.2068
It was just a week ago that 220.127.116.110 was leaked for the 9700. Now we have 18.104.22.1688. All reports seem to indicate that this release will be pretty good and has all the makings of becoming official. Download this and let us know what you think.

Talk about coming out fast now... Have to say the last one had a bad battery life on my phone. Hope this one fixes it again as the other os6.x were great.

Nice....the last one wasnt to bad just memory leak and the battery was awesome....i just hope this one takes care of the memory leak!!!
I hear the cursor issue is fixed and that this one is a pretty good release.
Sadly after just testing it, cursor still doesn't work for me in BBM.
having problems loading the option 14
its IM work in this one ?
I believe so, but I've also heard many contradicting reports too.

1. the cursor problem is fixed in the SMS but not in the BBM.
2. The Social Feeds now includes Facebook ;last release showed only twitter.
3. The Memory is better in this release but still not fully solved
4. The Battery life is better
5. The Flash is working for both still photos and videos
Something weird that i noticed in this release and the 22.214.171.1240; websites that try to detect the phone to download apps like Facebook recognize the bold 9700 as Curve 3G. which created a screen size problem cause you know the bold screen is bigger
Im a bit scare to install this os since the 380 its working perfectly on mine
126.96.36.1998 - bb 9700
Download took a while and reboot was longer this time around.
The memory look good and I have not noticed any problem with cursor or any other problems. This seem to be doing very well so far but I have been using it for about 12 hours. The speed is great and yes I deleted the T-Mobile theme cods again because I'm not sure it would work without that preliminary step.
I have tried each leaked OS and they are getting better and better. I don't think they are ready for prime time just yet.
I have installed the update since the first 6 update but i have not been able to browse on my browse in any the update. Any help on how to resolve this...
i think beta wait for the official release.....tks
So, from the comments, it looks like we are getting closer to a great release of OS 6 for the 9700!
380 to 418
Installed without any problems. Deleted all the wallpaper except for Blackberry before I installed.
380 was a great OS, and 418 has fixed some of the quirks I had. I experiance less cannot load page too large. Signal is once again improved in my area as I first noticed on 380, (3g more often and more bars, something that didn't happen as often on 324 and below).
Still no flash format for MSN videos,(I had one in OS5, every since I went to OS 6 no player. Youtube plays great as 380 did. Memory is about the same, goes down some and then rebuilds some,.......(uncheck the options in search function that you don't use makes a big difference for memory rebuild. Also enable memory cleaning option in tasks),....... not a issue on my phone.
I'm overall very pleased with this build as I was with 380, still checking it out, and will update if I find anything worth mentioning.........oceanghost
installed this, although I did not install previous versions of OS 6, this release kinda feels "official". Sometimes lags at scrolling and launching different apps, but all in all its great. (This probably has somewhat something to do with the device only having 256mb mem). The difference between the OS 6 and 5 is just epic, feels like a whole new phone in my opinion.
missing facebook in social feeds. any ideas?
Try and reboot first.

Another note, boot time is waaayy faster, must be the case for every other os 6 leaks. Really "stable" in my opinion. Pretty nice present from RIM lol.
I am unable to change the theme on my OS6 - was a problem from the start, but it still exists.
I have several OS6 themes installed, but I am unable to select any in:
Options -> Display -> Screen Display
I only have 'BB6 for Vodafone (Active)' visible.
I am also unable to use Blurts in OS6 and it is driving me mad!! I have reverted back to OS5 to test and it works fine... any ideas??
