If you have a Blackberry Bold 9700 you probably have heard that the Bold 9700 will be getting OS6.0 in the near future. But if you have been waiting for a leaked version of OS 184.108.40.2064 has dropped for you to try.
If you want to try the leaked version you can easily find the download and how to install just by Googling ‘Bold 9700 leak os 6′. Naturally you are on your own if you decide to upgrade to a leaked version.
If you do you may be interested in finding out if the Blackberry Slingplayer mobile program will work with the new operating system.
We rolled up our sleeves today and decided to give it a try. After updating both our Blackberry desktop program, the Blackberry Bold 9700. After a few tweaks on the Blackberry setup we were ready to try the Slingplayer program.
We used the Slingplayer Mobile software version available at http://download.slingmedia.com/player/mobile/bb1013/US/SlingPlayer_bold_EN_US.jad This is version 220.127.116.11. There are other versions of the Blackberry Slingplayer programs out there but after we rebooted the phone it worked great!
We connected fine, changed channels, etc. The player program still has some lag when you access the menus or send a command but no worse than it has been before in the past.
If you do decide to leap into the leak. at least you know the Slingplayer program will still work.
We are also hearing that this works on the Blackberry 9800 Torch. If you have a Torch let us know if that is true.
In addition, OS 18.104.22.1685 was leaked for the BlackBerry Storm 2 9550. We saw a mention that it allows you to use the keyboard again. This has been broken for a some time now. He was using Sling Player Mobile V1.0.11, which can be had here: http://download.slingmedia.com/player/mobile/bb1011/US/SlingPlayer_def_EN_US.jad and OS 22.214.171.1245 can be had here: http://www.bbleaks.com/2010/11/leaked-blackberry-storm2-9550-os.html
If you try out the new ‘leaked’ Blackberry operating system software and the Slingplayer let us know how it worked for you.
