    The links above just bring you to the thread to DL.

    For example, the V5 link will bring you to this thread:





    then you can choose what you want to DL.



    Thanks Shane, that works.

    Welcome to BBOS kruzzenkidd You will never have to worry about flaming over here.

    My personal favorite OS is the BBCrackman V5.1 for the .132 OS hybrid. It is an all around great OS and for you coming from .75 will make you think you have a new phone
    Head over to this link and read up on the 5.1 version and if you have any questions just post in that thread, and you will get an answer

    We do not tolerate flaming or bashing of any kind on this site. Our motto is their is no stupid question only the one not asked. I agree with bmtenney, that is my favorite OS to date.

    Remember these are all leaked and not official OS's so Verizon will not support them, but you can easily downgrade back. I downgraded my first storm with no issues when i had to return it.

    I would recommend .132 V 5.1 for you since I had issue with signal strength using .141 I will write something up for you so you can give it a shot when you get home.

    Ok here I go

    **back up your phone through Desktop Manger's back up option. If you have any 3rd party apps back those up manually as well. If you don't know how to do that click this link and follow the instructions http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/b...arty-apps.html

    1. Delete any OS's for your phone from your PC (control panel add/remove)

    2. Download OS .132 from here http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/9...-software.html

    3. Install .132 to your pc

    4. Download BBCrackman's V5.1 for .132 from here http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/9...w-gps-fix.html

    5. Follow the instructions for installing V5.1 (this thread is for V5.0 but it installs the same as 5.1) from here http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/9...n-v5-here.html

    6. Download Shrink A OS from here BlackBerry Apps/Hybrids by lyricidal

    7. Extract the .exe to your desktop (if you are on vista right click on it and select run as admin)

    8. click the browse button in Shrink and browser to your OS folder
    C>program files>common files>research in motion>shared>loader> Highlight your OS folder

    9. Select the items you wish to delete from the OS, once you get the "your os has been shrunk messsage" plug in your phone to the PC (make sure desktop manager is not running) and click the launch loader button

    10. sit back and wait for the install to complete it will take some time.

    If you run into any problems just post and someone can help

    Leaked OS and Unlocked Storm

    I have a unlocked Storm and use AT&T as my provider, will I be able to update my OS? If I can will I have to re-unlock my phone and install the required service books aor will it just update? I would really like to update my device since I have constant freezing issues; have to do a battery pull about every 1/2 hour.

    Welcome to BlackBerryOS MASERATIGUY!!!
    Yes, you can update your OS. No you wont have t re-unlock it. Just make sure you do a backup prior to OS upgrade. The apploader will make a backup to, but I do it manually just to be on the safe side.

    Yes MASERATIGUY, you can use any of the OS's found here. I would suggest starting with .132. Found HERE. It is a straight OS upgrade. Your unlock should remain through this process. As for your service books, should a problem arise, there is a thread that walks you through fixing it. Its HERE

    First I would like to say thank you, it seems alot more friendly here than at Crackberry. I've had Blackberrys for a while and keep buying them as they come out; so figured I might as well play around with them and get a better feel how they work.

    I know you told me that it will work but I am just curious if you have had sucess with other un-locked storms. I don't mean to try and discredit your knowledge since you know alot more than me.

    Thank you

    No worries, I understand your hesitation. I do not have an unlocked storm, mine is on VZW, however I do have an unlocked Bold that I run on TMO and I have no issues with upgrading at all. I have change the OS's several times and it always remains unlocked. The mep code is stored in the partition in the non rewritable memory and cannot be erased. So you will not lose it once you change to another OS.

    An unlocked storm is no different in regards to success than a carrier provided one. The Leaked OS's are much faster and smoother than the lower official OS's carriers have.
