    As I am typing I am talking to a Sprint Blackberry "specialist", he is "checking" to see if there is an update to OS 5 for us poor M users. I was just told at this time not yet So it looks like those of us who want 5.0 will have to be happy with the leaked OS

    For the time being, yes. But when they do release the official version, you're far more likely to find iut on CrackBerry first.

    Yeah, I don't understand the OP's statement that they will have to be content with the leaked OS, even that is for non-m devices.

    Unless your on Boost, then you get the "official" release =) Just venting a bit guy's, sometimes it's really frustrating to see things happening on other carriers for the same device =)

    Your husband has a Boost Mobile 8330?

    You can search for Nathanix's 5.0 hybrid OS for the 8330 in the Hybrid and beta OS forum. Don't use the "official" Boost Mobile 5.0 OS unless you want to see all your file free memory go poof.

    I still don't see a 5.0 version for 8330m. Did something JUST get released or leaked?

    What is the difference with the 8330 and 8330m that (as far as i know) the 8330m will not run any 5.0 OS and 8330 will?

    Enough hardware changes to make 5.0 not work on it.

    Nah, all RIM has to do is make appropriate changes to the code to change the allowed device the os will load on to 8330m. There is hardly any hardware change from the 8330m to the 8330. I would guess zero hardware changes.

    The only reason the m was made for certain carriers was to allow MEID numbers instead of ESN numbers. Its all in the firmware that's in the phone. Point of fact, Verizon sells the 8330 with MEID numbers now, but they are still designated as 8330, not 8330m devices.
