Leaked OS for BlackBerry Storm 9530
As we reported to you, the BlackBerry Storm 9530 is expected to get an official firmware upgrade just before or after the launch of the Storm2. This essentially will allow the original model to match the capabilities of the new version except for hardware related features. While RIM and Verizon have yet to offer up the official upgrade, there is a leaked OS update for the handset that comes out to version This is not an official release which means we need to remind you about the usual bad things that can happen to your device if you download it on your Storm. You could brick the unit, void your warranty or other unmentionable things could happen to the phone. Having said all that, if you decide the risk is worth taking and you want to check out some of the goodies that are supposed to be on the 5.0 BlackBerry OS build, please do not hesitate in letting us know. As we've already discussed, the new build is supposed to bring things like threaded texting, tabbed browsing and flick scrolling and "rolling" to the Storm. To download the leaked 5.0.0.,323 OS, go to this link.

Early findings include faster flick scrolling, more responsive screen, camera works (!), and faster browser. For those Storm users who need to perform a battery pull a few times daily, the boot-up time has dropped from about 5 minutes to under 2 minutes. Overall, the leaked OS is getting good reviews from those who are using it on their Storm 9530.

got it and I LOVE IT!! Much faster/smoother transitions & phone, and Flick scrolling is much nicer! Camera is fast and the sound is much better as it does not sound muffled anymore as you turn up the volume. Boot up time is UNBELIEVABLY FAST!! The "3G" icon is no longer there instead its back to 1XEV so it doesn't look as cool. Device lock is much faster and on point and integrates well with Stormslider. All apps work great so far like Meterberry, Weatherbug, and Pandora which did not work with previous OS leak! Overall im very impressed BUT also upset that it took this long for RIM to make this happen when I'm already ready to jump aboard the Droid train!

Anyone have information on this "W.A.V.E." Movement with At&t. I thought it was funny when I heard about it but i'm not sure I know what it is exactly about to be making assumptions. Please enlighten us...!

Only drawback I have found is my Vlingo does not work and no 3G symbol instead the 1XEV. Other than that its the best build I have used, even better than the official.
