    probably once it is official we will see such things. Rumor was that it wasnt going to be able to load leaked OS and such so who knows if we will need such things.

    Also, BGR is reporting this may send all your info back to RIM, so use cautiously.

    If anyone wants to do a little cross platform compiling there is a prog for Linux called Barry that does pretty much all the normal DM and JLCmdr functions.

    barry | Net Direct Inc.

    source code tarballs are available...

    The inability to install a leaked OS is a major killer for me.

    I've been using the DM for Mac all day, works great so far. Don't see anyway to install an OS with it though.

    Loving the new Canadian Networks.... Still feels like a total Dream, 9700 Bold is where its at.

    To load an OS RIM will have to release it as a .dmg file which is the Windows equivalent for exe. SO what we will probably see as OS's are made official there will be two versions, a dmg and an exe.

    Do you think that if a leaked OS was released as a .dmg then would we be able to load it on our phone even though it's not an official release?

    Definitely. The question though is whether leaked OS's will be released as a .dmg file.

    I sure do hope that we get some leaked OS as .dmg

    I just installed DM and I like what I see. I just backed-up my device and sync my music with my iTunes playlist. Looking good so far.

    Couldn't someone just make a diskmount file when they package it? Like how people make installers for hybrids, just make it a .dmg file? there are programs out there to be able to make diskmounts. Just a thought.

    That's a good question and sure worth a shot. I have a feeling that someone will figure out a workaround.

    BG's OMGZ! No big brother is watching is unfounded, DM for Windows sends the exact same information to RIM as it does on Mac.

    As for loading OS/Hybrids..give it time, anything that can be built..can be tore down, it's all just 01100011011011110110010001100101

    Yeah I did that this afternoon. Loading my whole entire iTunes collection was nice as well.
