Hey guys, quick before it disappears - I managed to find a way to download the .065 beta version ZIP file (so it's an ALX and COD install from the desktop manager, not OTA) still, they haven't completely wiped the site yet from sneaky guys like me.

Download here and save:
http://www.mobipocket.com/dev/beta/b...n=downloadSoft

That should download mobireaderBlackberryB065.zip, which has one ALX at the top directory (inside), then one cod for older devices and one for newer devices. I would say completely uninstall your .067 version and do a reboot before installing this.

I downloaded a copy and tucked it away in case I start to have problems with my 066 install on my device.

===========

For the curious, I used http://www.archive.org, a site that snapshots web pages over time for the whole internet. First I googled the keywords "mobipocket reader blackberry download", and the fifth hit down took me here:

http://www.mobipocket.com/dev/beta/default.asp

On that page I navigated to the download page here:

http://www.mobipocket.com/dev/beta/blackberry.asp?ID=3

That page *now* says the beta has ended, but what I then did is stick that URL into the archive.org website, which gave me this:

http://web.archive.org/web/200707160...berry.asp?ID=3

On *that* 'time machine' page, there's a link to download:

http://web.archive.org/web/200707160...n=downloadSoft

...and when you look at the URL, the last part is the actual real address. So, we simply chop that off and try it in yet another new tab in Firefox giving us the download link:

http://www.mobipocket.com/dev/beta/b...n=downloadSoft

...which, as of right this second (2008-03-01 10:11 GMT -0800) allows us to download the old 065 beta zip file.
