Official OS 6 Release for Bold 9700
OS 6.0 is finally available for Bold 9700 users. OS 188.8.131.520 from Vodafone Essar Limited gets the first official OS release for the 9700. Hopefully, we will soon see more carriers rolling it out as well.
For those that have already installed leaked versions of OS 184.108.40.2068/424, is it worth it to abandon those for the official 380? If you downgrade to the official OS 6 release, let us know what you think in our forums. Here are the download specifics:

I am just going to accept that this is never coming out for the 9630, leaked or otherwise. Please share the details
could you please advice if its the same of leaked software that we have already download before ?
No this build is different to the earlier leeked version, and is very stable link selection is fixed however there seems to be some browser issues (cannot configure) the trackpad keeps freezing and not working until a battery pull or two (very frustrating) is anyone else having this issue ? wondering if my trackpads broke lol. Memory booster is telling me its recovered 1gb in 24 hours
424 very stable and seems to do all I want
This was my first go at upgrading to an unofficial leak so here are my 2 cents:
1) upgrade very easy no hiccups or problems and quite quick
2) no big battery drops and all my apps already loaded work fine
3) cursors seem to be present when needed
4) browser seems fast and responsive
5) memory booster only picks up a few MB like it did in version 5
1) Copy and paste of a app registration number didn't work (so I typed it in manually)
2) Wifi with Browser some reluctance not to use carrier data but after a battery pull it's fine.
? is this really the first "official" release just getting a last beta test?
