Sweet! BlackBerry 6 Leaked for the Bold 9700


bold 9700 running blackberry 6

The BlackBerry Bold 9700 is expected to go official with BlackBerry 6 but for those of you who can’t wait for it to get out of carrier approval, a leaked copy of has found its way online. BlackBerry 6 is a huge improvement over OS 5 and almost every 9700 user is going to appreciate this upgrade. It’s too bad more devices didn’t see a BlackBerry 6 upgrade, but by the time most users are on 6, we’ll probably be seeing OS 7 (the QNX version?). Here are the links you’ll need:

    Apparently this is now a step towards actually being released (already two months late though)

    I am surprisingly excited about this. So excited that I have decided to switch back to my 9700 from the nexus one (for a bit).

  • AxeniC

    Did anyone get to download it before they removed them from those websites?

  • Vendor2

    If they wait much longer to release this I will be moving on to Android.

    Great installation tips!! Followed CrackBerry’s instructions on deleting the two TMobile theme cod’s, vendor xml and wiping 3rd party apps - new leak installed like a dream! Keep forgetting one thing that might be helpful to Mac users - boot up completely into Windows! Installation does not work on Fusion or any other shared OS functions. Has to do with the USB power allocation.

    Good lord they sure move fast! I got the download last night from Hotfile - the ones above were already deleted. Didn’t try ZShare and the Hotfile one doesn’t exist..

    Worked perfectly for My MacBook Aluminum Unibody on Snow Leopard using Fusion 3.1 default settings with Win7 Enterprise - all updates.
    Parallels 5 is commonly known to have issues.
