The tips line has been running hot today. Brian has just dropped us a link to the OTA for SkyFire browser for BlackBerry. I’ve tested it on a Bold and works great.
You can pick it up at the following OTA link:
UPDATE 1: Previous Link is down: Try here (Courtesy BlackBerryOS) : http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/software/4461-skyfire-ota-coming-soon.html
UPDATE 2: Looks like the leak came from TheBlackberryZone.com not BlackBerryOS.
I’ve included a few screenshots (more available after the Jump) for you all to have a look at.
Let us know what you find in the comment section below.
Enjoy. (And thanks again Brian for the tip)July 27, 2009 at 1:17 PM #179042July 27, 2009 at 1:22 PM #179043
Wow! Streaming media in a browser and Flash on a BlackBerry! Excellent.July 27, 2009 at 1:25 PM #179044
I tried the OTA and get HTTP error 404: NOT Found. I also tried copying the .jad file to my blackberry and lauching from there but get download failed?
Anyone have any suggestions?July 27, 2009 at 1:44 PM #179045
I wish I’d had a copy before Hulu.com blocked Skyfire. Hulu also now blocks the PS3 browser suddenly. Jerks!July 27, 2009 at 1:45 PM #179046
The BlackBerryOS link is still live. Try: http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/software/4461-skyfire-ota-coming-soon.htmlJuly 27, 2009 at 1:51 PM #179047

All the leak did was slow down actual testing and development…also, alerted SkyFire to a leak so next Beta release will be even harder to get a hold of…and it sucks anyways and you all were fed the VERY first ALPHA..it’s not even a beta..you all are 2-3 versions off so to even judge it off of what was leaked leaves you ill informed.
This folks, is why some stuff is better off NOT leaked..real beta users of SkyFire are now going to have issues connecting and addressing bugs for the day which in turn, slows launch.July 27, 2009 at 1:55 PM #179049
I was able to download the application but when I launch it, it says error connecting…. Any advice?July 27, 2009 at 2:13 PM #179050
Anyone having issues using it on the Storm using 188.8.131.52
can’t click on any items on the browser I even performed a soft reset no luck on using the browserJuly 27, 2009 at 2:28 PM #179051
Just tried it on my 8900. It’s not working. I can’t even see the homescreen. I only see poca dots.
Tried visiting websites, but to no avail, it just wouldn’t do anything.
I’ll try & reinstall just to see, but most likely I’d have to wait for an updated version.July 27, 2009 at 2:37 PM #179052
I successfully got it running on my 8900. I needed to let it log in to their servers, which took some time.July 27, 2009 at 2:45 PM #179053
On 8800 works terrible, slow and laggy (dont know, maybe its problem wtih serwers). Using TCP and Wi-Fi to connect, no support for BIS (maybe next version).July 27, 2009 at 2:52 PM #179054

I’m having the same problem. I think Bla1ze is right, and maybe we should all hold off.
