Do not, I repeat, do not attempt this, unless you know what you're doing.
Note - If you currently have Sprint's 706 installed, you can skip the CDMA folder, since it's the same platform.
1. Download the zip file from here.
3. Copy/Paste the contents (CDMA and Java folder, along with two alx files) into your current main OS folder.
32bit - Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\"your current OS name"
64bit - Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\"your current OS name"
4. Run Loader.exe located at:
32bit - Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\Loader.exe
64bit - Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\Loader.exe
5. Follow the prompts as usual
This contains BBM 126.96.36.199, so you may want to change the cod/alx depending on how the latest is running for you, to your preferred version.
You brick it, you assumed the risks.
Edit - Now includes the modified platform.alx (thank you Shane), which if you already have 706 installed isn't necessary. More than likely nothing more than a language change, resulting in a 4Mb larger file.
Said that I needed an update to the Blackberry desktop software, so had to close out and install all that update, now I plugged it back in and I will post this when the update starts to see how long it takes.
Platform version is the same as Sprint's .706 build...just has newer Java files...not sure if it's even worth upgrading.
Nice catch bud! Too busy hunting and capturing files to check.
I'd say it's possibly a tad faster than 706. So for the Sprinters out there, it may be worth swapping cod. Theme bug with custom is still present, so I'd suggest inserting the 522 ribbon cod before installing if you use them.
Edit - I'd also say that memory management appears a little better with these cod, and battery life might be better too, though way too early to tell for sure, and I'm not one to judge anyway.

For some reason, it decided I needed to activate my emails as a device switch. Since I didn't get that a week ago, when I received and activated my replacement unit, I assume that's the cause of it. Anyway, after activation, all emails are alive and receiving. Try doing it again, or through VZW BIS on line instead. Did take a few attempts for me to get them to go through. Most likely due to the huge data pound as groups were repopulating. Wish RIM would get that crap together.
