Ronen over at BerryReview got a tip about the latest download links for OS 184.108.40.2064. Make sure to get them fast as they tend to get ripped from Rapidshare fast.
The standard caveat applies: if you don’t know what you’re doing, stay away from these leaked OS versions. Back up your device too.
If these get ripped, we would appreciate posting a mirror link. Also, let us know if you find any bugs or this negatively affects your device.
