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!

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 :(

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

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!

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

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. :)

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...

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.

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.

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?

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 :)

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!

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.

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 :)

so, I download from official site, do i still delete the vendor or?? I am with rogers with leaked versin
thanks

i asked the same question on a different forum.. the only answer i got was... do it with a windows OS coz all the downloadable files are on exe. files and no dmg. files which is for MAC

This link works:

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?

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

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

------------------
Software For BlackBerry® Curve (TM) 8900 smartphone

BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.661 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 5.0.0.661
Consisting of:
Applications: 5.0.0.411
Software Platform: 5.2.0.31
File name: 8900M_PBr5.0.0_rel661_PL5.2.0.31_A5.0.0.411_Telefonica_Spain.exe
File size: 129.45MB
----------------

Ok, thanks for the info.

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

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.

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

Thanks

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.

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

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

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.

what the... my 8520 can't browse the internet this time, others just fine, am i missing something here or just RIM forgetting something?! downgrading with the leaked version!!
...I'm using Indonesian XL carrier...

Done, Works Perfectly on my 8520. just reinstall the OS with no restore my previous apps. My mistake, sorry RIM, Now run so smoothly n betterer. ;) Thanks!

just installed last night on my 8520 and im testing it and its G-R-E-A-T! :) thumbs up guys!

and now im installing it on my mothers phone 8900.

the only thing its that the app world when i go to the top free categorie, it wont open. i already tried upgrading it, and downloading it again. but just can get it work :( but overall itss F-ing great!

I have a curve 8520 running on prepaid. Is it ok to upgrade it using any upgrades released by any carrier?

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
