Blackberry 5.0 OS Download *WARNING* Don't do it!

I see a lot of leaks out there for the new 5.0 OS download for the Tour and Storm....DON'T DO IT!!

I have heard nothing but issues surrounding it due to apps not being able to work with it, slower run time, and overall poor performance issues.

These leaks are not from RIM which is why it is important to wait for the official one!!

If you already downloaded it, and are having issues...email me and i will tell you how to downgrade back to the original.
