Yes that screenshot on the right is a 600mb+ download of the Ubuntu ISO image. Andre let us know about a hack that Omie has posted that lets you bypass RIM’s arbitrary 2.3MB download limit in the BlackBerry Browser. I am not sure how many of you need to download huge files but I can see myself downloading larger MP3’s and such.
I tried the hack on a test device and it worked but I am not sure how comfortable I feel about putting it on my main device. The hack requires you to selectively restore an IPB file with a service book from China Mobile which deletes your email service books. You can easily get your email service books back but I honestly don’t know if this service book could allow somebody to snoop on web traffic. In truth there is probably very little risk but I am a bit paranoid and I don’t really need to download files from the Browser.
This hack adds the NET Browser to your list of possible browsers which you can then use to download any size files as long as you have space for them. Pretty cool right?
