Thanks very much for the information. Oh well, there goes my theory about the BB OS version.

My "file manager" ("cp -p") doesn't change the file modification date. Even if I did, however, I believe that the md5sum should be identical, as it's based on file content, not meta-data like the modification date. In fact, I just tested this by copying ("cp", without "-p") a file to another file: they have different modification dates, but the same md5 checksum.
