After a Boost Mobile user posted a pic of their Curve 8330 with OS 5.0.0.438, 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 5.0.0.438 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.

Download OS 5.0.0.438 for the BlackBerry Curve 8330 from Boost.

Tour owners have been gunning for the latest OS 5 build for some time now. With OS 5.0.0.419, hopefully the device will run more smoothly and boot up faster. Again, this is a leaked version so all the usual caveats apply.

Download OS 5.0.0.419 for the BlackBerry Tour 9630.

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 5.0.0.411 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.

Download OS 5.0.0.411 for the BlackBerry Bold 9000.

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!

Download OS 5.0.0.428 for the BlackBerry Storm 2 9520.
