Leaked ROM For New BlackBerry Curve Packs OS 7 Video Tutorials

By 08:43 Sun, 11 Jul 2021 Comments

A Read-Only Memory (ROM) image for the BlackBerry Curve 9350/9370 (a.k.a Sedona/Apollo) has leaked with the non-touch BlackBerry Operating System (OS) 7 inside. Four video tutorials were found inside, which give us another taste of the recent interface, which is yet to hit the market.

Since Operating System (OS) 7 isn't compatible with older devices, the leaked Read-Only Memory (ROM) can’t be installed on any current BlackBerry device. We’ll have to wait for the Curve 9350/Curve 9370 (those are Sedona and Apollo respectively) to come out to see how the recent Operating System (OS) handles without a touchscreen.

Note that the only BlackBerry Operating System (OS) 7 devices that are currently official utilize the touchscreen/portrait QWERTY combo, so their UI and the one on the Curve isn't the same.

Three video tutorials (at the bottom of this article) were extracted from the Read-Only Memory (ROM) (they were intended as on-device tutorials). They show how to utilize the Operating System (OS) with the optical trackpad and the QWERTY keyboard. There’s a fourth video that shows how to insert SIM and microSD cards but we’ll skip that as it’s hardly interesting.

The Read-Only Memory (ROM) is for the T-Mobile version of the BlackBerry Curve, though other versions shouldn’t be very different.

There used to be similar video tutorials from the BlackBerry Brecent Touch 9930 (back from when BB Operating System (OS) 7 was still called Operating System (OS) 6.1) but those are long gone now.
