    ok guys and gals. as some of you may know, i made a sticky thread in the Native Apps Forum regarding OTA links to BBM5 (see my sig for the thread). now included there is an OTA install for beta OS 5.0's. im aware that some 5.0's do work with BBM 5 and some dont. could you guys please post the exact 5.0.x.xxx OS's that do and do not work with BBM5.0. i need to update my sticky so people running the Beta OS's dont get mislead by downloading the BBM5.0 OTA link and not have it work.

    please list as follows......

    Device - OS - yes it works, or no it doesnt.

    thanks

    thanks guys, keep it coming. maybe its easier to just let me know which early build it does work with and assume all the others do not work.

    Tried today on OS 5.0.0.230 for my Sprint 8330 after loading up the new OS last night. BBM 5.0 was a no go. reverted back to 4.7 and it now works like a charm.

    OS 5.0 would load, but the icon would not appear. You can go into the applications list and find it there though. Weird.

    it appears there is a version 5.0.0.22, but it is by invitation only.

    I bet you that version is working with 5.0. Even if you got the software, you would have to be put on the internal RIM list.

    Not sure if I can deal with going back to 4.7 BBM after having history and contact backups.
