    Hi there, not sure exactly what you're asking, but I can tell you there is no difference between loading a "leaked" vs an "official" OS. All OS are made by RIM and 99% of the time distributed to all carriers with that device. Carriers then decide if they think the OS is decent, and whether it's good enough to justify the major tech support of hassle of releasing an OS upgrade.

    Removing a cod from an official vs a leaked OS is no different.

    Sorry I meant I wasn't sure if that file would have had a different name and maybe it shows up differently for others.

    I attempted to install BB6 to my 9700 and I got Error 507. The computer will connect to the handheld and the app loader says it connects to the BB, erasing app data, installing system software and then during waiting for device to initialize, the phone restarts and goes to the BB6 startup screen and freezes at about 60% and then the Error 507 screen appears. Any thoughts? I am downloading BB6 off of another mirror and going to completely reinstall it. I have a standard AT&T 9700.
    Sounds like your OS install failed for some reason. Is your USB cable plugged directly into your computer or is it in a USB hub? It should be direct.

    Try again using the install instructions in the first post, following them carefully. Let me know how it goes.

    I do not have any sort of memory leak on my Torch with about 15 apps installed. I firmly believe memory leaks are a result of certain apps/themes and not the OS itself.

    Not that it matters on the Torch with 300MB+ free lol
    Those are probably the most common reasons for memory leaks but there are plenty of others. There are certain operations/actions you can take that will leave a memory leak only until next reboot.

    Having a very low free memory threshold can result in this too. Get down to around 30MB free and monitor it, and you'll start seeing that mem free aount just sink through regular usage.

    I have a bunch more apps & themes than you, and Imy Torch at about 250MB free, which is plenty!

    No same name for for everyone.
    If OS's have the same version number (aka Application number) then there can't be any differences except which language pack it has (EastAsian, Multilanguage, All Languages) or possibly the Platform number, which represents the radio file.

    Well, not sure exactly what happened, but I went ahead and checked in bbsak and net_rim_blackberry6_480x360_b.cod is still in there. When I get home from work I'll give it another go and see if I can recreate it.

    Jeffrei: If you can, add me on bbm so we can solve this quicker. I want to download the OS today.

    You cannot install a leaked OS using a mac.

    No luck with a fresh install of the 6.0 exe. I tried a new USB port. I am on a laptop, Windows 7 Enterprise, with a dock, but I was already using a hardware port, not the hub in the dock. I disconnected the computer from the dock and tried to do that and came back to my phone with Error 507. Right now I am trying to reinstall 5.0.0.602 and see if can save my phone. Desktop manager is currently checking for device software updates, but the bb's screen shows the computer <-> phone transfer screen, so thats a good sign.

    Thanks to all who posted before me, I am now rocking OS 6!! I read the forums before downloading and it went seemlessly! I am a T-mobile customer, so I deleted the T-mobile themes, as suggested. I did not restore my settings, but I did restore my third-party apps though (because I had the time on my hands to re-install if I had to). I can't seem to get Shrink-a-OS to do anything with OS 6 though. I will keep trying, but everything is running well. The new menu will take some getting used to, but I am glad I did it!!

    Did you ever create a backup using an e-mail address or on your memory card?? If not theres nothing you can do.
