Sure, BlackBerry firmware leaks are pretty much a dime a dozen -- especially for the Verizon-branded Storm
and its CDMA cousins in Canada -- but how often is it that you've seen a 5.0 ROM
leak? Not bloody often, so this one should get a few folks pretty fired up. This particular build is 18.104.22.168, and while some people have managed to successfully install it, we'd definitely recommend proceeding with extreme caution -- the firmware's apparently originally from a Chinese site with no clear backstory, so the security of the update definitely can't be guaranteed (especially in light of that recent spyware scare
). If you have a go at it anyway -- and we know you probably will -- let us know how it goes.
