Yahooooo! Thank you, that's a great news! :)

Valgi

I'm gonna enjoy upgrading my friend's phone.

mattpowell19

kcarter3

Bout ************* time!

Congrats guys. I won't whine, 'nuff said.

AMBER885

i downloaded the official v 5.0.0.484 that Sprint released...working like a charm. RIM's releases arent carrier specific...just make sure the release is for the Blackberry you have and voila!

Mistah

We're Sorry...

Sorry, the file is temporarily unavailable, please try again later or contact the webmaster.

this is what i get for the 8900 version :(

btag601

cant download for my 8900 either

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

THERES NOT EVEN OFFICIAL 5.0 FOR 9000 BOLD FROM ROGERS. RIDICULOUS

swag12

awww is not working

CammieB

I'm not familiar with Wind Hellas. Is it a network? Can I download this on an ATT 8900?

364ll

Woooo ! the 8520 hasn't been forgotten after all :)
Now all I need is Orange Uk to release it ...

Snowman81

Thanks for the heads up, downloading now for the 9000.

Cellstone

Any news on tabbed browsing yet? I love my .461 build...solid!

sanjk1

i second that...top build!

Seems like there is an issue at RIM - Getting the following message when trying to download the 8520 version

We're Sorry...

Good to see it is coming out for the 8520. Woo-hoo! C'mon 8520!

chrisxacosta

why isnt this available for a mac. anyone wanna help me out

piper975

Still waiting for the 8350i 5.0 OS to drop ... where is it ??? come out, come out from where ever you are !!!

CrackCurve56

The reason it may have been pulled is that Bluetooth is not working properly with the media player on .509. They need to correct this. I put it on my 9000 and not just me, but several others who play music with media player and bluetooth were having a problem. So sit tight. They are the closest to putting out a 5.0 for the Bold 9000 with this version than ever. :)

Maxxxpower

No download possible at the moment...
Could anybody please provide Rapidshare links?

Syros

what about 9700, it's been long time since its last update...

LOY80Y

is the bluetooth issue happening on the curve 8520 as well?

turbofour

Just updated my 8900 and everything went smoothly! Gonna give the OS an whirl and see how she runs!

craighunter1990

has anyone got a link to information about this? im on o2 will this software make any diff?

Kostantinos

is rogers ever going to get an offical 5.0 os for the bold 9000?

Jerky223

Rogers sucks for all cell phone software upgrades.

Cap_172R

I too have been waiting to see if rogers would release an official OS 5.0... hopefully it would come soon! but then again.. who knows...

Matt J

Updates on Rogers take forever. I agree that (looking back) I would chose another carrier besides Rogers. Bell is looking good now, but I wish we had more choice.

amirnabilkamelsaad

Can somebody please confirm this version for the Bold 9000 has Arabic typing support?
Thanks in advance

P.S.: it should be in the language selection before installation.

insman1

This would be good news if I new what
WIND Hellas was? A cell phone provider. Will it work with my AT&T Curve 8900?

jackbox

I need some East Asian lovin' from RIM.

CammieB

Insman1, I had the same question, never heard of the company. You can definitely download it for ATT. I did about an hour ago. Everything's smooth. Works great :)

kstagg

I downloaded this file, and it installs the: "Blackberry Device Software v.5.0.0 for the Blackberry 8520 smartphone" per the .msi file as well as per CCleaner.

But the $25,000 dollar question is - where does it install it to?

I don't know what to do next? In the Desktop Manager it still says 4.6.1 is the latest/greatest OS and that the install of the .msi did nothing to show that 5.0 was now available to put on the phone. How do I get this on the actual phone?

Your help in this matter is GREATLY APPRECIATED.

So close! Arggggggggh!

moresa

After you run the set up wizard. Open BB Desktop Manager and plug in the BB. Then go to your C-drive > Program Files > Common Files > Research In Motion > App Loader and delete the xml.vendor file. After that at the top of the list there should a app loader file. Double click that and it should load up. Select the features/applications you want to load on it and go. Hope this helps.

Bodyshaker

Thank you soo much i just menaged to update me curve 8520 and im really pleased whit it because i was running 4.6 but now its very very nice big thanks for the commenr that you post really helps alot :)

d123am

pphunkymunky

i'm trying to install but i get a note under the update stating only valid blackberry subscribers are entitled to install this update.

then when i continue, it says there is no valid update. i've deleted the vendor.xml file...

help, how do i install?

pphunkymunky

looks like if i backup my data in DM, then just run loader.exe it works fine

xBBGirlx

I have the leaked .509 on my 9000 and 8900 but now want the official release. Sorry if this is going to sound stupid (!)..Will I need to downgrade and remove the leaked version before loading the official?? Or can I simply just install the official release on my pc and upgrade my device as usual (and obviously removing the vendor file). PLEAAASE ADVISE!! Thanks

florin.panaitescu

hi, can anyone tell me please how can i install this new OS 5.0?

thanks,
florin

evenstarr#CB

Why are there always so many people that ask how to install an OS everytime there is a new official or leaked version that is released???? There is a seach button on the top right of this website and if you type "install OS" it will give you a step by step guide on how to. I don't mean to be rude but it's my pet peeve when people won't do things for themselves and expecet someone else to do so.

That is my rant for the day.

Hi

Telefonica Movistar (Spain) just released v5.0.0.661 for curve 8900

Dem0

thats the Package Version .661... the real version is 5.0.0.411 <--- really old one!

gparte

Ok, thanks for the info.

Perhaps is a really old one, but is the first Telefonica release of a v5

bladey2k10

you'll find this is actually 5.0.0.411, as stated in the applications details. this is where you'll find the actual software version.

passant

So I downloaded the file yet DM doesn't recognize the file.
How does one upgrade for a t-mobile USA 8900?

Thanks

RWWackostu

For the 8520. It's about damn time. Thanks RIM

pjosman

Couldn't get the Desktop Manager to find the os. I think there was a problem with the installer although it did not error out. Looks like update files never were installed. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

RWWackostu

Disconnect your internet connection, then try again. Also, you can load it using the app loader method. Look under the 101 tutorials.

StormBran

Why wont Verizon release and official OS update for the storm2 9550 they still using 328 and I know there some really good fixes since that version I am really beginning to hate verizon

Youreawhata

Bricked my phone. This OS sucks

fadyissa

can anyone tell me if this fixes the lock/standby merged ? and if the lock button works ..

racso39

The mute key doesn't work and the lock key is working like the mute key.

DorothyofOz

I agree, when WILL Orange UK catch up... grrrr!!!

chrisesau

I saw a post saying there is no lock keypad function in this build. If you are on your main screen hold down A then your screen will go off. Upon pressing a button it will say keypad locked press mute button to unlock.

kdetlefs

There is no option for keyboard lock on this version! Downgrading!

Munyuk81

Finally after such a long time... An official release for 8520

CrackCurve56

On the Beta of .509, there is a bluetooth problem for the BB Bold 9000, and for the media player. You can't fast forward songs, without skipping one. Is this still TRUE on the official version? Please advise.

dare_devil_dennis

Hi
I did a wipe with BBSAK while i was being distracted and did not back up / save or load an OS for my curve 8520. Now it sits there wanting an OS. I downloaded the new version mentioned here and I'm now sitting here like an idiot wondering what to do next.

Can anyone help? BBSAK just says no operating system found and it will not connect to the BB.

thanks

Dennis
