The latest BlackBerry Torch OS leak was recently analyzed by the BlackBerry community, which extracted new and updated versions of RIM’s native IM apps.

For users of these native IM apps, which include Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, Google Talk and AIM, this software find could significantly cut down their wait time for the next round of updates. A major disappointment, however, is that these updates to the messenger clients are exclusively available to BlackBerry users running OS 6. So far, there are reports that for most of the updates include a larger typing area and a new Smiley button for adding emoticons.

Below are the individual updates for the apps. It’s important to note that you follow the installation process carefully and at your own risk, as the updates are not yet official. You can find download links and additional information at CrackBerry.
