    What did you have to do to get the browser to work? I'm on a CDMA network.

    Not sure about CDMA-this is a thread from here on PS-BB OS 5.0 Browser Fix for AT&T
    This post assumes you have already downloaded and installed BlackBerry OS 5.0 t your phone.

    First you will need to download a couple things.

    They are the CrackUtil Program, and the AT&T service books. I will attach the service books to this post, but CrackUtil you're on your own for because for whatever reason I'm unable to get it to upload on my connection currently. I apologize.

    Download and unzip the servicebooks zip file you download from here. Best bet is desktop just so it's easy to find.

    Install CrackUtil if not already done.

    Vista users ONLY: Right click on the shortcut on your desktop. Select Properties. Click on the Compatibility tab. Click in the check box next to Run as Administrator

    1. Okay, connect your Bold to the computer, start CrackUtil.
    2. Click on the tab that says "File Manipulation - INTERMEDIATE"
    3. Click "Retrieve File Listing"
    4. Scroll down and find the file called "net_rim_bb_browser_daemon" and click on it
    5. Click "Remove File from Device" and it will store the file in a folder for you.
    6. You will get and "Out of Grid" error message on CrackUtil, this is normal so no worries.
    7. The device at this point is rebooting so close CrackUtil, leave the phone connected, and allow the phone to finish booting up. You could also see a couple of errors once the phone does finish loading up, again, NOTHING to worry about.
    8. Start BlackBerry Device Manager
    9. Click the Backup and Restore
    10. Click on Advanced
    11. On the Left hand side, you'll notice it says "File", so click on that
    12. Navigate to where you unzipped the service books to, it will be the only file in the directory so no guessing here
    13. Once you double click on that, it will drop it into the left hand side of the two windows
    14. You'll notice 2 buttons between the 2 windows on Desktop Manager, click the bottom one has the ">>" on it
    15. That will throw the service books onto the device. At this point, close desktop manager because you're done with it
    16. Start CrackUtil
    17. Click once again on the "File Manipulation Tab - INTERMEDIATE" tab
    18. Click "Load File to Device"
    19. It opens where it pulled the browser_daemon off your device and stored it on your computer
    20. Double Click that file to load
    21. Once it loads, your device will reboot
    22. Once you see the load screen, close CrackUtil, and you can disconnect your Bold from your computer
    23. Once device loads up, go to either your BIS login page, or the Personal Email Setup icon on your device, resend your service books to restore email
    24. Enjoy your Browser

    It most certainly did. I know there have also been a post or two about dislikes of the Storm2 but as much as I hate to disagree I don't see it. I think they finally got it right. I just wish I had more choices so I could experiment with other devices.
