Remember back before Verizon finally decided to update the firmware on the BlackBerry Storm 9530 to OS 126.96.36.199 it seemed like there was a new leaked OS build hitting some download site every 2 or 3 weeks? Well, we aren’t sure if we are going to start seeing new leaked OS updates coming at us that fast and furious again, but, we can say that there is a new OS out for the BlackBerry Storm.
Lusacell has actually released BlackBerry OS 188.8.131.52 for the BlackBerry Storm and it is available on RIM’s site, so, I am not sure that it is fair to call the OS a leak. It isn’t, however, officially supported on the BlackBerry Storm from Verizon so you will have to treat it as such if you decide to install it to your Verizon branded BlackBerry Storm 9530.
If you decide to downloand and install 184.108.40.206 for your Storm and it isn’t from Lusacell don’t for get to delete the vendor.xml file from the apploader directory. If you don’t know what or where that file is, you probably shouldn’t be installing this update, but you can find it here:
c:program files>common files>research in motion>apploader
This directory will be created after you install the update. Make sure you remove vendor.xml before you update your device.
