I don't think you can downgrade without replacing the entire OS on your BlackBerry.

Sweet! Never occurred to me to try a selective install but it makes perfect sense. Often folks do an upgrade and BBM is not checked for install by default so clearly it's a plug-in situation.

Just go to RIMs site and redownload. The new version just released brings back that option.

Confirmed the .129 version regains the "Show What I'm listening to" function.

As for other bugs, I've only really noticed the messed up scrolling in group chats when entering (it works ok after a 10-15 seconds) and newly entered text not showing up immediately in your group.

A few other issues have been reported & it seems to be more on the non OS6 models, like the icon disappearing or being too large... I have a feeling that all will be sorted by the next update
