Official OS 5.0.0.743 For The BB Bold 9700

image It has been a while since we seen an OS for the Bold 9700,  but wait no more Bla1ze over at CB posted OS 5.0.0.743. Right after that we learned that Optus has officially made the OS available. This is quite a nice jump from 5.0.0.680  As usual with leaked OS there is not a change log so if you decide to make the jump, let us know if you find anything new or bugs with this build.

  1. Thanks. Has anyone installed this one?

  2. Tried installing but under the update summary its saying no updates required, not sure why as have installed v.656. Helopppp!!!

  3. Thanks for the Rapidshare Link!

  4. I am installing now. I will let everyone know of my findings.

  5. this os increased my boot time tremendously, it freezes at 99% for like 5 minutes and then does the same at my carrier logo, it isnt even as responsive as the rest on my phone, it honestly felt much much better when i first installed it until my first restart,,,,

  6. O2 in the UK appear to have released a rollback since this OS – and appear to have missed the… 680 entirely that all forum users seem to have loved :(
