Loading the new BBM was a little bit of a trick. I first tried P3Designs instructions from this thread. No dice. Kept getting that annoying "no applications for your device" message, after I had opened the ALX file. So then I tried the instructions from the front page post. Put the two COD files in the Java folder. This worked, but wasn't clear as to what version it was loading. It said it was loading 4.5.0 which confused me. I went ahead anyway hoping that 220.127.116.11 would load regardless. Sure enough it worked. It still says version 4.5.0 in the applications list on my device, but not in BBM itself.
Now my gripes. I will echo Bryan in the no pic preview option. In fact, I wish there were a lot more options. I don't care so much for the buddy pics. It makes the contacts list twice as long and hard to scroll through. Unfortunately there is no way to disable buddy pics and make it like the old contacts list. The same thing can be said for messages. It takes up twice as many lines. Your nick goes on one, and your message below that. Yay for more scrolling. Again there is no option to change this behavior. That's about as much testing as I've done.
Switching between new incoming messages is super easy and quick. I do wish there was an End all chats option in the menu rather than having to close each chat. It would just be a big time saver.
I am considering going back to BBM 4.5 to tell you the truth. The improvements to BBM just don't do anything for me. I like a nice clean, and compact messenger. Not something that tries to look fancy.
EDIT: I think my version mismatch issue is because I didn't even bother loading the ALX. Just copied the cod file and ran DM.

Sunkast I am almost there with you. This new version just looks to clustered for me, and make it hard for me to read. I will give it a few more days and see then i will go back lol
I've tried installing it using the Desktop Manager. My OS is visible in this post on the right hand side. How can I re-install the earlier version now since I am using 4.5?
