After a Boost Mobile user posted a pic of their Curve 8330 with OS 22.214.171.1248, it seemed only a matter of time until the download became available. Well now you can head over to the Boost Mobile page and grab OS 126.96.36.1998 for yourself! Just remember to delete the vendor.xml file. Also, if you’re a Tour owner, feel free to use the comment thread to vent. Also, I’m not sure if this is compatible with the 8330m, so let us know if you’ve tried.

Since Simon first published How To Upgrade Your BlackBerry OS, there have been a ton of updates and questions from BlackBerry Cool readers, so I thought it would be good to republish with new tips and put everything on a single page.
Get started with your BlackBerry software upgrade behind the jump!
RIM has pushed OS 5 out and now it’s up to the carriers to get it to the users.With OS 5 available for the Bold 9000, hopefully we’ll see more devices getting an upgrade shortly. OS 188.8.131.521 is now available for the BlackBerry Curve 8900 from a variety of carriers including Vodafone and Optus Mobile. Remember to delete the vendor.xml file located in: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader.
Tour owners have been gunning for the latest OS 5 build for some time now. With OS 184.108.40.2069, hopefully the device will run more smoothly and boot up faster. Again, this is a leaked version so all the usual caveats apply.
[First spotted by BBLeaks]
RIM vaguely promised that we would be seeing OS 5 for older devices before 2010 and while they didn’t deliver in full, they have at least brought us OS 5 for the Bold 9000 very early in the year. This build comes as OS 220.127.116.111 and is courtesy of Bell Mobility. Remember to delete the vendor.xml file if you’re not with Bell.
The vendor.xml file can be found in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader.
[BerryCN got the scoop]
BBleaks have found the latest OS for the BlackBerry Storm 2 9520 and it’s available for download right now. I would hurry over and grab this because they tend to get yanked fairly quickly. If it does go down, help others find it by commenting a mirror link. Remember, this isn’t official so backup and don’t blame us for something going wrong. Thanks!
