Does the leaked 5.0 BBM work on the leaked 5.0 OS for the 8900?
09-29-2009, 11:23 AM
Nope. The biggest advantages here seem to be a faster overall experience and threaded SMS.

So you're saying the BBM that was leaked a few months ago works? I've seen a lot of other people saying it's not compatible and can't get it to work.

wich version os are u running ive tried at least 3 of them and i cannot get the bbm 5 to work

if this is the new BBM then Yes it is working
and this is the version of I am using of 5.0
All the apps I personally use on a daily (not many but its just facebook, viigo, pandora, google maps) work perfectly. Wifi is great, Network connection is great, the threaded SMS is cool, I just need to get used to it cause I am used to the 4.3+ versions.
I did back up my fone and then wipe it out w/ JL_CMDeR. and then reinstalled all thru app loader.

Looks like 4.7 to me. Check your Options / Applications / Add-On and see what version of BBM is installed. I suspect you'll see 4.7.0

Yes you are right, It is 4.7. I never used 5.0 or the new BBM so I thought this was it. Sorry for the confusion

Trying to do so now via OTA, but I get "download failed" when I click details, I get "907 Invaild COD : Unable to import ZIP file"

ive been reading that the only way to get it goin is with 18.104.22.168 and the tour version of bbm 5

Ok, I've went through about a dozen other forums and the official word is no, "BBM 5.0" does NOT work with .190, or the new .238. This did include an update to BBM which is 4.7. However, this is still not the version everyone has been waiting on.

Second that, the new version of bbm the works with this build (238) is version 22.214.171.124 which being tested internally on RIM and I doubt it will leak anytime soon

Here's a quick question...do you have to do a wipe of the device prior to upgrading to 5.0 and which version is better 188.8.131.52 or the new 184.108.40.206 in your opinion? I've been thinking about upgrading to one of the 5.0 leaks but I'm torn between the two. Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated!
