UPDATE: Sorry guys. RIM’s legal counsel, Jordan Vaeth, seems to be a avid reader of BerryReview and keeps on sending in these takedown notices as you can see below. Guess RIM has nothing better to do… Though truthfully this OS was reported as causing a few issues.

Hot: OS v126.96.36.199 for BlackBerry TourAugust 29, 2009 at 3:44 AM #180298
Was just sitting here bored and nuttin to do. Lo and behold, its time for some experiment…August 29, 2009 at 4:28 AM #180299
The rim internal apps is a system set up so testers can send feedback to RIM but by going to control pannel and looking for that part of the software you can remove it is a separate set of tools that gets loaded to your device if not remove. You can also disable it from your device but its easier to just remove it from pc before upgrading the OS. Hope that makes sense. Not all leaks come with it but some do.August 29, 2009 at 4:49 AM #180300
Thanks Luis for the responces. I have loaded it on to my Tour but have a black screen and the led is flashing red slowly. hmmmm still waiting to see what happens. Getting a little worried here. I might have to go back to 188.8.131.52 if it doesn’t load right.

your welcome, as long as it loads completely you should be fine, as a rule of thumb I always do a backup though DM, and also use BSAK http://www.berryreview.com/2009/08/21/blackberry-swiss-army-knife-bsak-updated-to-version-v1-5/ to back up all my 3rd party appsAugust 29, 2009 at 4:57 AM #180302
Yes I did do a backup first before doing this. I just did a battery pull and still black screen and led flashing red slowly. Ok now i,m worried. I don’t know if I can restore back to 4.7. Any help with this would be great. Oh I have done tons of Os upgrades and this is the first for me.

@automan69 I would use BSAK and use the wipe device option to where it gives you a white screen with an error and then try to reload the OS. That should fix it for you. It should also let you reload the previous OS, if you are going to go back to 4.7 un-install the 5.0 from your PC and re-install 4.7 that way your system is clean and DM doesn’t have any problem detecting it.August 29, 2009 at 5:34 AM #180304
Thanks again Luis I had to go back to 4.7. It didn’t work for me. I lost all apps but not a big deal. Just sending my service books again.
One quick question is on BSAK how do you backup your Apps I hit the backup button and it shows me a list of all apps. Where does it store it on cp? Is there something I missed. It doesn’t tell you the location it is stored.August 29, 2009 at 5:48 AM #180305
Yeah it should store it on c:/program files/bsak/backup folderAugust 29, 2009 at 7:17 AM #180306
I had installed 5.190 on my Curve 8900 by doing a complete wipe using BSAK. 5.190 works like charm, its more stable than the earlier 5.xxx versions, its supports both Yahoo.Mesg. & Gtalk which were not supported by earlier 5.xxx, even I see Battery life have imProved.. Worth upgrading.. Go for IT..August 29, 2009 at 2:27 PM #180307
I have the same problem. I also did a battery pull, but it is still flashing on and off. I can’t even do a reset or connect with BSAK. How do I bring it back to life?August 29, 2009 at 3:02 PM #180308
I found the site on how to restore a “bricked” BB. It’s a shame this new OS didn’t work.August 29, 2009 at 3:37 PM #180309
I currently backing up my 3rd party apps with BSAK. Then ill try and install the new OS without the internal apps. Im actually going to use the OS that doesn’t include them, i hope thats not the one that is giving some individuals troubleAugust 29, 2009 at 4:07 PM #180310
Installed it this morning. So far it’s been running great! It’s definitely faster and I love the threaded SMS. The only issue I’ve had so far is with Visual Voicemail. I had to install it from my backed up cods. Google Maps (with GPS), SmrtGuard, SocialScope, Opera Mini, Autostandby, BerryWeather, Evernote, LastPass, TetherBerry, and a few others all seem to be working without a problem thus far.
