I just got a tip from one of our readers who, wishes to remain nameless, that the new Service Pack we have been mentioning is now available for BlackBerry Alliance Partners. This is a good sign since the official May 11th release date (shown below) seems to be on track.
The reader also mentioned that he has tried following the instructions Jibi mentioned on BoyGenius with some luck. He cant share screenshots but I thought it would be interesting to mention. He did not recommend trying it outside of a lab.
Hopefully we will be seeing the full public release soon.
