BlackBerry Curve 8520 OS 5.0.0.610 unofficially available

BlackBerry Curve 8520

Those who like tinkering around with their gadgets may want to hear this news, especially if they own a BlackBerry Curve 8520. The folks at CrackBerry have provided a Hotfile link that allows BlackBerry Curve 8520 users to download OS 5.0.0.610 for their smartphones.

The leak is accompanied by a disclaimer that warns potential users that the OS is not an official release. The OS must be downloaded and installed only by those users who are well versed with the process of upgrading and downgrading device software. There’s no need to add that important data stored on the phone should be backed up before installation of the OS.

Those who are a little skittish about doing this but insist on having a go at it anyway should probably wait for community feedback before trying their hands at it. Certain features or functions of the phone could get crippled or disabled during the OS development. Since this OS leak does not come with a guarantee label, users will be upgrading the BlackBerry at their own risk with support available through the CrackBerry forums.

So that’s one more weekend activity to choose from for gadget buffs who use a BlackBerry Curve 8520 handset.
