    Updated Nov 1, 2011

    Warning: This was not created by RIM. I threw it together a few minutes ago.
    Download: Bridge OS2 Beta
    Current Version: http://www.filearchivehaven.com/down..._1.0.5.222.bar
    Old Previous Version: http://www.filearchivehaven.com/down..._1.0.5.202.bar
    Old Previous Version: http://www.filearchivehaven.com/down...e_OS2_Beta.bar

    Installation: BlackBerry + Android, and thank you DDPB Installer | File Archive Haven (via DDPB)
    Purpose: This should make Bridge easier for developers in the meantime.
    Notes: Swipe from the top to change some options (like user agent) or default bridge url

    If you see the message: Error 503 Transport not supported. It means your Playbook and Phone are not bridged.

    New in

    - Removed links and status at bottom
    - Improved Bridge detection
    - Hardend application
    - Adjusted screen ratio setting with mismatching windows
    - Added two more user agents
    - New default UserAgent (PlayBook) is most reliable, less attractive
    - Many bug fixes from old DB Code

    Known Issues:
    - Some pages fit funny - this looks unavoidable
    - IE agent adds a 'Web folder' that does nothing
    Interesting? I wonder what this means in the future?

    Great job yet again... some UI polish on these apps and you'll put Rim to shame!

    The killer flash video performance of your browser app kills Rim's...

    Well Done!

    This is cool idea as this can easily switch to other bridge app. RIM should really inspired by you to do this.

    But Bridge Browser and Bridge Files is still not working.

    Was using the other workaround that opens in the native browser - but this one works even better! I can cope without bridge browser, bridge files or sound - Thanks so much!

    I actually submitted this for free to the AppWorld - RIM kicked it back because it says "error 503....|

    ... which is actually an error put in by RIM that means you need to Bridge your phone.
    ... also the same error I explained in the description and release notes.

    I resubmitted with a block of text in the app saying what error 503 means. But who knows, maybe they will actually let this one through At lesat they were testing it lol.

    click on the bridge os2 app icon and then select what bridge function you want

    Nah, seems to me the install didn't take and you're tapping the original bridge icon. You don't end up with the same icon. Look for a totally new looking one labelled 'Bridge OS2' at the very bottom of your first pane.

    Well now,

    Free Bridge OS2 Alternative - Download Bridge OS2 Alternative - Free Apps from BlackBerry App World

    Looks like they are relaxing their policy a bit in places App is actually live in appworld. I'm as shocked as you guys are.

    Oh! Sorry, first post on this thread is where I've been hoarding the release notes

    Ok thanks! I notice that the latest release notes say .225 instead of .222. Also, I can't tap on links within emails to open in the browser...

    Why can't RIM employ people like KermEd?! Not that they need to now he's doing their job for free!

    Hi guys. I an only see a white screen? E.g. when i click on Memopad / Notepad, i cannot see any files. If i make a new file, it will be on my blackberry as well. I use the latest Bridge OS2-file and OS2 .3894.
    Anyone else having this issue? I can use internet-tethering but can not see any messages. Not on both my Blackberries (9780 en 8520) btw.

    Update => It works when you select English language and US Country.
    The native Bridge works now with the new .3894
