New Leaked OS Breaks AutoText

New Leaked OS Breaks AutoText

With pretty much every BlackBerry 7 smartphone getting a leaked OS this week, all of us were in for a treat.  With some extra memory at boot, and a minor face-lift to the app switcher, the new update appeared to be a clear improvement on previous OS leaks.  However, the build did manage to prevent you from adding or editing your “AutoText” or “Word Substitution” list, something that many BlackBerry users consider very important.

AutoText is a classic BlackBerry feature that allows you to use typing shortcuts and automatic word corrections when you type so you can be a more productive when typing on your BlackBerry.

Simply pressing “Add” or “Edit” in the “Word Substitution” screen seems to do nothing in the new leaked OS for some reason.  Let’s hope that the official build of OS 7.1 doesn’t have this issue. If you’re rocking another OS that doesn’t have a broken AutoText or you have found a fix, feel free to check out N4BB’s guide on how to use AutoText for BlackBerry 6 and 7 here.

This colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus virion. See PHIL 1832 for a black and white version of this image.

Where is Ebola virus found in nature?The exact origin, locations, and natural habitat (known as the "natural reservoir") of Ebola virus remain unknown. However, on the basis of available evidence and the nature of similar viruses, researchers believe that the virus is zoonotic (animal-borne) and is normally maintained in an animal host that is native to the African continent. A similar host is probably associated with Ebola-Reston which was isolated from infected cynomolgous monkeys that were imported to the United States and Italy from the Philippines. The virus is not known to be native to other continents, such as North America.
