    Since everyone just ignores my questions in BBM topics why don't I just make my own.
    Running on 4.5.0.131.
    First - My bar code keeps changing. Is that a problem? I've tried testing them by adding myself and they all work.

    Second - My BBM is BBM 5.0 under my applications not BlackBerry Messenger. Why is it BBM 5.0? I downloaded it OTA from BlackBerryZone.
    Let me show you an example of what I mean by this.
    My applications.
    AOL Instant Messenger - 2.1.45
    BBM 5.0 - 5.0.8
    BlackBerry 4.5.0 Core Applications - 4.5.0
    BlackBerry 4.5.0 System Software - 4.5.0
    BlackBerry App World - 1.0.0.26
    BlackBerry Attachment Service - 4.5.0
    BlackBerry Maps - 4.5.0
    BlackBerry MDS Runtime - 4.5.0.20
    BlackBerry MDS Default Launc... - 4.5.0.20
    etc.
    I've asked friends and they said theirs is like this.
    BlackBerry Messenger - 5.0.0

    Third - Sort of the same problem as second.
    My desktop manager shows this for my applications. (x) for checked.

    If I click next I get this.

    Now I don't want to click Finish because I know it will remove my BBM.

    Despite the question mark, that is actually an observation.

    Because it not ready for formal distribution, they abbreviated it just like we do.

    That is correct, it is designed to install v4.5xx code, replacing an earlier (or later) OS.

    I don't do anything and it'll change itself. There have been people on CB saying it doesn't change since it's my information.

    Because it not ready for formal distribution, they abbreviated it just like we do.
    That I understand but I've had it previously installed and it was under the name BlackBerry Messenger. It downgraded when I tried to reinstall BBMaps through DM. Installed it again and now it's BBM 5.0.

    I know that it's a leak. Before people start coming in here saying it's a leak and to wait for the official release. I just wanted to know if people had similar problems as me and if they were able to fix it.

    Its BBM 5.0 because that is the install name the creator of the OTA files chose to name it. This, perhaps, the OTA developer's way of letting you know that you actually have BBM 5 and not just a good looking prior version. About the changing QR code. While I'm not a QR expert but I suspect that the code may change based on changes to your device or configuration... i.e. Change in GPS location if you have location services activated.
