  1. Just what I was looking for…
    Downloading and installing right now to replace my freshly installed .380
    P.S.: There is a typo about the NEW version to download, no biggy

  2. This is probably a trivial gripe, but .380 allowed me to charge the 9700 while in the cradle. For some reason, the other leaks (this once included) are too finicky and require you to push the device too hard in the cradle for it to be able to charge on its own. Hard to explain. But the point is, you won’t be able to properly charge the device while in the cradle with this leak.

    • Ii have no problem charging in the cradle. Could it be something else?…

      BTW, I can’t seem to download any new themes with OS Is this something anyone else has noticed or am I doing something wrong in downloading themes in OS 6?

  3. So far its ok with me but ill have to try it out the cradle let me see hold on ……………………………………………………Nope worked for me I just popped my right in the cradle and the clock came right up. @GregN u might want to check the pins on the cradle and the charging connections on ur blackberry. Also make sure ur charger is securely connected on the back of ur cradle and the light is on.

    I was able to delete the memo pad and task app from the new OS before installing. I also left out the password keeper and social feed and was able to have 91.5mb left of storage. I’m wondering what if I delete the help cod’s how much more memory can I save lol. I will find out.

  4. Ok, so I’ve had this OS for a couple of days and here’s my verdict.
    1- Podcasts: Since I migrated from the Old OS 5 to this OS 6, I had to migrate manually all the video/audio subscriptions I had to the new folder (not a big deal since it only matters the way it’s organized in the folder structure not the podcast itself)
    Funny thing, the OS comes with it’s own podcast yet, you have to install the app to make it work from App World…
    2- Missing cursor in BBM, no biggy
    3- BBMaps not working????I recall the first OS 6 I tried it was there this one doesn’t load any maps when I try to use it.
    4- Avoid loading too many pictures…(keep it under 1k, since I had 23k pictures it went crazy) this causes the phone to die quickly battery wise, memory wise and use. The phone becomes useless since you can’t install any apps (I’ve seen the memory drop before to 0MB) and the battery dies….in a few hours. Advice, again keep it under 1000 pictures until they fix this major memory leak issue.
    5- Oh, I forgot to mention…this is very important.
    This OS from my view…is unique and when transferring from an older OS it is best not to restore itty gritty detailed settings.
    For example: restore calendar, address book, memopad, tasks, security lock, sms, mms and the such but not the options and details of how the programs are setup. It minimizes confusion since this OS is still in Beta.
    That’s a wrap 😀

  5. I am still sticking to the leak OS for my Bold 9700. I have tremendous battery life with that version and works like a charm with no issues! The next install for me would be when OS 6.0 officially releases for 9700 Bold.
