Default OS 5.0.0.230 for 8230

Please Login to Remove!

Since there was no thread on this yet, I figured I would start one.

Last weekend OS 5.0.0.230 was leaked for the Blackberry 8230.
Here is an article with a download link: Leaked OS 5.0.0.230 for the Pearl Flip 8230 | BerryReview.com

I have a buddy with the Alltel 8230 and it will not install on this. Apparently the Alltel version is actually an 8230f...who knew.

Changes I've Seen:
- Threaded SMS - SWEET!!!
- It now says 3G instead of 1XEV
- A LOT of new options in many menus
- Bedside Mode now has ability to automatically switch profiles
- Ability to ring and vibrate at same time in Profiles
- Media is now separated into folders
- New blackberry boot screen with progress bar
- New camera interface

Issues I've found:
- Blackberry App World gets error connecting to App World Server
- Viigo doesn't work - hangs when clicking icon
- Quickpull Lite doesn't work
- No BBM 5.0 - but that is true for any 5.0 OS
- No external display of SMS messages. It just has the icon with the number of unread messages

*OS Disclaimer - This is an unofficial release. If you choose to install, do so at your own risk and only if you're comfortable in the process of upgrading and downgrading your device software.

Does anyone know if this issue has been fixed yet? I have 5.0.0.230 and App world still doesn't work...any ideas?

Can anyone comment on themes? Do they display properly? When I put 5.0 on an 8330, I lost the top line of the display on most screens. Any theme issues on the 8230?

I have not seen any theme issues running 5.0 on the 8230.

Thanks for the response. Did the upgrade and it looks pretty good so far.

Two strange strange things I noticed.

If I play something in the Media Player, then close the Player, the Player still displays on the external screen after I close the flip. I have to battery pull to get rid of it.

Also, there is net_rim_tid_multitap in the downloads folder.

I too have this problem, I have noticed that if I pull up my mp3 list it sometimes goes away from the outside screen, but not always.

I am experiencing this too, I just hid it and it seems to be a non-issue

@bremere, thanks for the resonses. I have since gone back to 4.1.6.309. While I could have put up with a few small items for the beta version, I had one problem I could not get past. I saw no way to set Sure Type as the default input method. I only had one option in the settings--for Multitap. I constantly found myself typing away, notlooking at the screen, only to find it was in Multitap mode. :/

Any further updates on a 5.0 OS for the 8230?
