Bring it on! Question about upgrading OS on Storm
So got my new phone, got it all fixed up and back to how I had my previous one. Look at me go! ha ha.
Next step, upgrade my OS. Cant remember where I saw the links for the upgrade...now do I have to do a complete wipe before upgrading or do I just go ahead and load one...also, which is the best one?
The first link is for leaked software http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/9...-software.html and the second is for officially released software http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/9...-software.html And if you need instructions or anything, hit the bottom left link in my signature :fing02:
My suggestion is to upgrade to the BBC's lastest hybrid which can be found here:

Good to hear tamara
I would first suggest reading through this thread
I agree don't do a wipe unless you are having a problem. Load 148 first then try bbcrackmans v6.
Ok first post from my phone and can't see everything hope there's not too many typos... Ha!
My .02(U.S.) for what it's worth:

At any rate, once you've had a little evaluation time with either of these, your PC will already be properly configured to move on to Crackman's hybrid. Please know that, for whatever reasons, different Storms demonstrate different results with just about every operating system officially released, leaked, or created (hybrid) by those who labor tirelessly in the persuit of something better than RIM released. You're starting out on an MTS device with an official .122 OS. How has that been working for you? In my opinion, that was NOT one of the finer examples of a good OS so updating can likely only help.
Good luck and welcome to OS.
There are some very knowledgable folks (the wizards of OS) on the site that can get you through just about any glitch you encounter in the updating process so don't worry. And, MTS has a downloadable, official release of .122 should the need ever arise to return your device back to its original state.

However once it was completed my phone rebooted and has now been "working" on the DM for quite some time. Is that normal? I'm not sure what its 'working' at but I am a little concerned about unplugging it from the computer at the moment.....lil help?
