More BlackBerry Storm firmware updates leak out


Man, BlackBerry Storm users are gettin’ the unofficial goods left and right as of late. While the rest of us get to wait for updates to pass through weeks of carrier certification, it seems like someone is leaking these Storm firmware updates every time the code looks stable. This latest leak bumps the (unofficial) version numbers up to OS for the BlackBerry Storm 9500 (GSM) and OS for the BlackBerry Storm 9530 (Verizon’s CDMA model).

We’re not seeing anything that looks like a notable new feature, and the early findings indicate that while the accelerometer, transitions, and camera have all become a bit snappier, things are still a bit shaky – which is understandable, as neither of these are official releases. The 9530 update also seems to fix an a recently introduced issue which kept pages javascript code from loading properly.

If you’re looking to guinea pig your Storm for the sake of science (Note: These are unofficial updates. Things can break. Install at your own risk), you can find the downloads here:
