    Hey All,

    Firstly I was wondering if someone can help me out in finding BBM 5.0? I'm 80% sold on installing it but not sure. My OS is 4.7.1.53. Would it be okay to run? What are some of the advantages?

    Secondly, I saw that OS 5.0 was leaked, What are everyone's general opinions on it? As well I have never installed an OS or anything of the sort, would it mess up all my settings and apps? As well any other things you think I should know would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    BBM 5.0 runs very good on 4.7, not really sure where to find but if you do a search for it I'm sure you will find a link.

    OS 5.0 runs really good too, I have been running for a week plus and would go back to 4.7. The threaded SMS is so good I don't need to use BBM anymore. Boot time is much faster and everything seems to be a little faster. Its been very stable overall with only a few freezes only on face book.
    Installing the OS was very easy just look for the directions in the 5.0 thread.

    I second the OS 5.0.0.230 thumbs up! The best OS Ive ever used in my history of owning BlackBerrys. Threaded SMS, Fast paced OS, Hardly ANY mistakes and it works smooth! Although BBM 5.0 does NOT work with this OS yet. Only 4.7s BBM works.
