BlackBerry Storm 9530 firmware update is leaked
Last night, the long awaited new firmware update for the BlackBerry Storm 9530 became available online. This latest leaked OS build is and includes the newly updated version of the cut and paste function for the first touchscreen BlackBerry. As we previously reported, instead of using two fingers to highlight a block of text to be edited, the new version uses a gray rectangle to help you more easily highlight the specific text. Some users who downloaded the new OS are complaining that the dial pad will not come on the screen during a call, replaced instead by the QWERTY keyboard. Other findings are that the problem with the icons still exists with colors looking faded. The full QWERTY keyboard is still available in portrait mode, the green "GO" button still replaces the "Enter" key when using the browser, various applications seem a little quicker, and the accelerometer is a little less sensitive which improves upon the last upgrade which left the screen switching orientation too easily. The bottom line seems to be that this will not be the next official software fix from Verizon and RIM. And because this is not coming from the carrier, we give you the friendly reminder that it is risky to download leaked software. Bad things could happen to your device, things that we wouldn't wish on anyone. Having said that, if you did download it, feel free to report your findings on the new firmware for the Storm 9530. And for those who count this sort of thing, the last official OS for the Verizon version was

they need to release .99 as the official update. its still the most stable and nearly as fast as the others. 114 looks like a skip for me, regardless of the new and way improved way to move the curser around.

I have erased this upgrade as it has caused problems with the acceloremeter locking up and radio issues as well. .109 is a winner for now, I would like to have the new ability to edit my text but not at the expense of downgrading the pure performance of this device.
