    Bold OS 5.0.0.190 with Blackberry Messenger 5.0

    Blackberry Bold:

    So I had installed blackberry messenger 5.0 (leaked) the other day on when I was running operating system 4.6.0.297 and it worked great. Really liked it as it looked really good.

    Upgraded to leaked operating system 5.0.0.190 yesterday and was running bbm 5.0. Problem was I couldn't find bbm anywhere on my phone. It just disappeared. I tried everything with different installs. I could receive pins but they would just come up in my "messages" folder. But no actual messenger program.

    I did some research on the interent and apparently bbm 5.0 and the 5.0.0.190 dont work together.

    So I decided to keep the operating system and downgrade the messenger. Because I really like the threaded sms in the new operating system.

    So, I haven't been able to find a fix on the net to have bbm 5.0 to work with OS 5.0.0.190.

    Does anyone know anything to make it work.......or when someone does find a fix, please post it here.

    On a side note......the threaded sms in the new operating system is awesome, only wish that mms was threaded with the sms instead of getting it separate. Maybe they will fix that for a final release.

    I have a feeling you had to reinstall the OS, possibly even wipe everything and reinstall.

    Yeah, thats what I did. But its not hard, you just back up your stuff with desktop manager and everything gets reinstalled including your bbm contacts

    BBM 5 won't work with the newer leaks of OS5 since the BBM5 is a older version and won't work

    Thats what I thought.....I guess its just a matter of time before a proper release is leaked.

    Yea that's what everyone is hoping for, I'm sure there will be hybrid OS' that come out that has BBM5 and then features of OS 5.0 but I'm sure you may lose some of what OS 5 has to offer cause the base will be a 4.6/4.7

    I nuked my Bold twice trying to run the alpha 5.0 beta build...so went back to .282...

    But now, using a 4.6/5.0 hybrid with the 4.6.0.282 OS and the 5.0 BBM...which can be downloaded OTA here...

    Works great!! Totally improved over 4.6!

    What does this include from the 5.0 OS?

    As long as I can keep threaded SMS, i would give it a try to have bbm 5.0 to work with it.

    Guess I'll just stick to 5.0 OS with threaded sms then. Prefer that over bbm 5.0
