there was a 2nd & more stable leak - 188.8.131.528 - & it works great. No need to upgrade to the 9780; time to wait for something that will be like the Droid Pro. Rumors are out - Pluto - that RIM will bring back the Bold 9000 form factor with all of the upgrades of the 9800, including a touch screen. with the new OS 6, I can now wait.
Here's a link but I'm not sure if the download is still avail

[...] the Bold 9000 form factor [...]
How does that compare with the 9700 - is it wider / longer / deeper? I've only ever owned the 9700.

If you download os of a different network, you have to delete a file named vendor.xml before you can install it on your phone.
The file is in the following location:
For windows x86 (32-bit)
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in Motion\Apploader\
OR for x64 windows (64-bit)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research in Motion\Apploader\
Delete the file named vendor.xml
In the same folder, run Loader.exe, which will install the new os for you.
It is recommended you make a manual backup of your data via Desktop Manager, but update the os from Loader.exe.

I just wanted to add some info. For BES blackberry users (9700) I got some users at my company that upgraded it by themselves to version 6 and they stopped receiving the company emails, but their other inbox continued to work fine (ex : hotmail, Gmail, etc.)
I had to redo the Activation Enterprise so they could get their business email again.
So for BES users check with your IT before upgrading to OS 6 cause you might have some surprises.
If you have a way to make it work without making the Activation Enterprise failed, I’d like to hear it J
I am on AT&T. Please edit your Personal Profile with your DEVICE TYPE, DEVICE OS and Carrier

If you use desktop manager on your work email client PC and the BESAdmin did alow for desktop manager activations then it will not fail.
