Just yesterday OS 188.8.131.52 got leaked out to the BlackBerry community and today Scott let us know that Verizon has began sending emails to announce an official OS update for the BlackBerry tour. If you were one of the those that likes to wait for official updates you should fire up Desktop manager and plug your tour to get that update.
With official updates upgrading should be easy but as a rule of thumb always do a back up before doing an upgrade, also you can back up your 3rd party applications using BSAK just to be on the safe side. Hopefully this release helps out those who have been having trouble with the tour. Let us know on the comments what you find and if any improvements. On another note where are those 5.0 leaks thats what we really need
Thanks to Scott for the tip.
