    OP: So I found a download on a torrent style site that is around 150 mb and claims to be OS 5.0.0.140 for the 9530. Filename is 9530AMEA_PBr5.0.0_ral176_PL4.2.0.17_A5.0.0.140.exe . Its downloading very slowly and im 99.9 % sure its fake and im a dumba$$, but what if its not?
    Any opinions? as if I needed to ask.

    CrackBerry Headline: It looks like a Chinese site has posted OS 5.0.0.140 for the BlackBerry Storm 9530. This is a recent development so we don't have many details, but if you're willing to give it a shot, let us know the results. Keep in mind that because OS 5.0 is not official yet, a lot of your existing apps may not work on 5.0 even with a successful operating system upgrade. Visit the the Storm OS forums for more info

    Megashares - Drag. Drop. Yup. The first site to provide FREE file hosting with drag n drop support.

    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
    (thanks to Cable17)

    File will need to be extracted using a program such as WinRar, Password if needed: raysource.
    Once extracted you will also need to navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\ and delete the RIM Internal Folder, otherwise your phone will constantly send bug reports to RIM.

    Interesting. Now does your computer have a virus?

    You'll know when you download it. And please link it to us if it's the real thing.

    The screen shot on the linked page is photoshopped.

    The second zero in 5.0.0.140 is aligned lower than the rest of the version number.
