Official OS For The BlackBerry Curve 8520 Released By Singapore Telecom


yes u can , all u need to do is delete the vendor.xml file n ur good to frm jamaica so im telln u u can....downloading as we speak

So who is this update for? I'm confused! I've only done one update and that was one sent directly from verizon! So is this safe? How do I go about? I'm in us!

Ok so this is my first bb, and I've had this baby since feb! All along thinkin it was a 8520, read reply, went looked on box, OMG lo and behold I freakin have a 8530!! Everything I've dl was for 8520 including themes and everything works fine!! Sooooo my next ? Is what's the difference?? I feel like I got a new phone!! Lol will someone explain??? Pwease???

* download and install the setup file
* when it loads up the desktop manager, be sure to delete the vendor.xml (in vista my location was C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader )
* backup your data on the phone
* turn off the internet
* go to application loader
* click start on update software, then just follow the wizard

version was the last one with key lock.. Anyone know why? What do u guys use when using the holster without the lock?

this is interesting, there is no icon for locking but instead my shortcut key for locking still works. it was set to holding down A to lock. and that still works.

for those interested the update worked perfect on my at&t 8520 in usa

has any one tested the video fast forward in this os. i am running a leaked and it work find on the one.

i have a 8520 on T Mobile, im in the US, and im using a MAC, does anybody have the directions for me

thanks in advance!

it was the first time ive tried adding a new OS and i was scared for awhile but everything went smooth and .681 is awesome i like the features way better then 4.6
my carrier is Tmobile , i'm in the US

I just upgraded my 8520 (I have T-Mobile), and I love it. I downloaded the new OS from the blackberry website via the link at the top of this page. Instead of it starting my Desktop Manager for me, I went into C:/Program Files/Common Files/Research in Motion/AppLoader and deleted the vendor.xml file as directed. I then had to install the new OS directly from this location via the loader.exe file. For some reason, when I went into the Desktop Manager after deleting the vendor.xml file, it allowed me to select the new 5.0 OS but when I clicked next it said I had no upgrades to make. I googled the problem and found the answer here. This directed me to install it via the loader.exe file and it work great.

It does a backup for you during the process, but I did mine before I did any downloads.


HEy, i have a at&t 8520 curve...i downloaded this and i am having trouble installing the new 5.0os...when i try it says that i am already running on the latest blackberry software. can anyone help?

I have installed the OS and deleted the vendor.xml, but when I run the loader.exe, it still does nothing to upgrade my OS to the new one.

It only said "no actions are required"

Any advices ?? I'm desperate..
