    200u5b6Yes 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?

    Check out the instructions on Omie’s website or follow the discussion on BBOS forums. Let us know if you try it and it works for you!

    WOWSERS. That’s freakin awesome. I wonder if this allows you to stream large video and music files also. I’m definitely going to try this one out.

    thanks a TON

    HAHA Download a Ubuntu image! AWESOME! I’ve been using 9.10 since Alpha 2 and been really enjoying it.

    This procedure loads service books onto your device and blows away the ones you had before. I was left with no email services and can not push old email service books back. I would beware doing this if I were you.

    Or you could just simply download operamini 4.2…hmmm just a thought. I have had no problem downloading large files using Operamini. And no messing with service books and email issues <img src="smileys/wink.gif" width="" height="" alt=";)" title=";)" class="bbcode_smiley" />‘ class=’http://www.berryreview.co/wp-smiley’ /> </p>

    Sounds like you didn’t do the step by step. I have do this and works great.I can send and receive files/pictures. This works so well I tried and dl a file over 7mb with no problem. If your email icons dissapear goto options/advance options/ HRT and register. If that doesn’t work resend your service books.

    Wouldn't it be nice if when ever we messed up our live we could simply press ' Ctrl Alt Delete' and start all over??

    Agreed. I did the trick, my email accounts went away, but I just resent the service books and they all came back. No issue with send or receiving files/pictures either. The only odd thing is that I now have 5 browser options on AT&T Bold, Internet Browser, MEdia Net, Hotspot Browser, WAP Browser (which I guess is the reason for the extra one-non-ATT branded MEdiaNet), and NET Browser.

    I was able to DL large files and can’t really seem to find any ill effects of the change. Will report back if the sky falls.

    For some reason I am able to download large files (at least 20mb) in my browser without even using this hack. I have a Bold on ATT. Was this limit removed for 3G devices?

    Sounds like when you changed it to net browser you didn’t save it. Try that.
