    Im sure me and others want to know how to install this latest leaked OS using the new BB desktop manager 6. Unlike the previous versions where you install the new OS, load up the BB desktop manager software and automatically install from there. Any tutorial (with pics preferred) to guide on this?

    How I did it was open up the firmware file and it opened the Blackberry desktop and it said their is no new updates. Then I installed the .exe of the firmware, after that the desktop software opened again and said a new update [.895] was avaiable, and it installed it.


    It is a really good upgrade from .713 so far

    I cant use loader.exe because there is no folder or file like that installed with desktop manager version 6 (the latest) i run xp home 32 bit. is there any other way to manually load the new OS onto my connected storm through dm?

    loader.exe has absolutely nothing to do with DM. If the BB OS is installed on your PC then you have the loader. Doesn't matter if its 32 or 64 bit, xp, vista, seven. Stop trying to use dm, it usually causes problems

    Install the os to your pc. delete the vendor id here

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\Vendor.xml

    then then click on the loader here

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\Loader.exe

    I posted in another thread, but could someone with Tank Recon 3D see if you can play it without the phone rebooting? I tried reinstalling, resetting permissions, etc., and it still won't work. Haven't tried any other Open GL games yet, but maybe later today. I'm posting this here because howarmat is in this thread and I'm pretty sure he has TR3D.

    Only other problem I've noticed is that the music player is FUBAR. In portrait there is a black flashing bar on the screen and in landscape sometimes the forward button is missing. Seems to play find though so far...

    I love that I can finally type long SMS messages and have them divided up!

    No sir, I sure didn't. But, I haven't heard from the grand noobah on this build. Then again, I really didn't expect to, this topic is way out of his league. I find it hysterical that RIM just can't get it right.

    I wasted 45 seconds of my life downloading this clunker only to delete it after reading about 20 posts! Laughable

    All right guys, I have had some time with this new OS (895) and everything is perfect except for the robot voice! Its annoying to the point where Im going to revert back to 713! however its only for other verizon callers such as my dad and sis that get this robot voice problem but I call them a lot and its pushing me past the point! anybody know a hybrid or solution to this problem as of yet?

    I installed 895 and have no problems at all.
    No Robotic voice.
    Also I love the 5 icons back on the call screen again. It makes it so much easier to look up contacts and view there information before I call them.
    Maybe it is a hardware issue.
    I totally disagree that this Os is junk
