Okay, despite this being my first post here, I am not a total BB newbie. I had the Storm1 but after going through 7 of them I switched to the Tour. I know that as soon as one is ready, the OS 5 will be released for this phone but it is taking soooooo long. I don't load leaked OS's because I'm too chicken and most importantly I don't want to void my warranty. I see official updates and leaks everywhere for everything else, especially the Bold. Come on Verizon, where's the OS love for the Tour? Get the lead out already!
I feel your frustration. I, too, do not want to install software that might not work 100% with my Tour, so I am also patiently waiting for an official release. The Tour, along with a couple of others, is expected to be upgraded soon. We users will only find out about it perhaps only a few hours before it is relesed from VZW. So, for now, all we can do is be patient and wait. I commend you for your insight in not upgrading with a leaked version. Who knows, maybe Santa will visit Big Red and press the upgrade button for us by Christmas.
What is wrong with running a leaked version? I'm running a hybrid from Irtehun, and it is running flawlessly.
If VZW can have a 5.0 for the Storm 2, and the new Curve, there is no reason not to have it for the Tour. There can't be that much difference.
I wouldn't get to excited about 5.0 because you may be dissapointed when it comes. It was a big improvement on the Storm 1 but still pretty buggy. But maybe when the Tour version is official they will have got some of the bugs out, could be the reason for the delay.
