Official OS for the BlackBerry Bold 9900, Torch 9810 and Torch 9860 from Vodafone DE


it sure looks like the holidays....even software updates are being rolled out one after the other...any official 7.1's yet?


Yes, it should be out by now because most people thought that OS 7.1 will be out before the end of 2011.

Hmm... Leaked OSs are directly from RIM? So I guess they'd have no tracking/monitoring software. Wonder if Vodafone does.

It from Celcom Malaysia. Still under testing by celcom. Should roll out by the end of this month by carriers testing this OS (7.1). :)

Looks to be a bigger file than the leak if the 245 mb shown in the image above is correct. The leak was 239mb.

Downloading it now to see if there is any difference in the file.

I'm there with you. Been waiting what seems like months for a leak of any sort for the 9930.

I'll take any carrier's- just something for the 9930 would be nice

Hmmm everytime I buy a verizon blackberry I end up waiting forever for a leaked OS or official. That's what you call official bullshit

I have my first cell phone - 9900 and I love it - and I am wondering: do I need to wait for the upgrade to be provided by my carear - bell canada - or can I downloaded from somewhere else? There are some bugs with the current version that I hope would be fixed now.

Waiting for support from your carrier might prove to be quite long. Updating your firmware from the updates found here has been a complete success for me and all the BBs I support in our company.

Hope this helps!

Roger McGoompko recommended upgrade!

a person should always upgrade,

ALWAYS - McGoompko says.

in the time of your life, live so that in that good time, there should be no ugliness or death for yourself or for any life that your life touches, seek goodness everywhere

download file direct from voda's website for the 9860 is corrupt - now dl 3 times and every time throws a setup initialisation error????? :(

Yes. There seems to be something wrong with the update file for the 9860. Anyone found an alternative operator to download the latest update?

.540 gives me three days on the standard battery. Unless a new OS can beat that, no way I am switching. Ever.

Someone would still have to be a pretty fast talker to convince me to "upgrade".

Oh, and, guys who let their BlackBerry phones sit on chargers overnight, your opinions regarding battery life are of no value...Still. You are not supposed to do that and your battery life will suck no matter what OS you use.

Really need help here.. At a lost what to do?

I downloaded 585 and all was well with downloading and installation. There was no error message as I checked for any vendor file but there was none as I had deleted them for the 474 installation. But when i opened my DM, nothing happened? it was still in my old bundle.

Can anyone advise me what i can do. I even had it uninstall and re-install but still the same. I also tried deleting my DM and re-install but same thing. I can see the new bundle installed in my computer but my DM still shows the old bundle and so is my device.

Please help..

How can I select 2g mode only? When I update my bb9900 2g only disappears!! I can only choose between 2g&3g or 3g only. How can I make it appear in newer versions???

Thank you in advance

Hey everyone,

FYI the 585 update absolutely stinks!!!! I have tried the leaked version and this official version; both are done as a fresh install using the JL_CMDER to wipe the OS and then used the App loader to install the new OS. I would of course, delete the vendor xml file and then use the app loader.

I found that the battery life would barely give me a day with or without the battery saver installed and running in the background. I would use it for music only for the most part. Basically, my trip to work and then at the gym so a total of about 3hrs of music played. I would turn my phone off at work because I have no signal where I work. Also, I would use the holster while at the gym, but when I would take the phone out, I wouldn't be able to turn the volume up or down or even skip songs. I even had a random

I also found the phone to be terrible at multitasking with this build. If I play music, run twitter, and then open a link in twitter to a webpage, the phone would freeze up on me. My only problem with .540 is the fact that I had the "dying in sleep" problem in which the phone would need to be rebooted if I plug the charger in. It would think that I'm plugged into an underpowered USB port, but in reality, I'm using the wall

So far the best build for me has been the .503 because I easily get a full day of heavy use, don't have to worry about rebooting when I want to charger my phone, no random freezing, no problems with the music player's skip/volume/mute key functions, and last but not least, no choppiness in using the OS

Hope this helps some of you out there!!!

just started downloading this off the site im avg 250-300kb could be better its understandable a lot of ppl are also wanting this file . ... total size is 238MB by the way (9810 ill post back later

Just installed on my 9810 and it's stable, def much quicker overall maybe the fastest response I've ever seen on my 9810 very satisfied.
Thank you very much:)
In love with my phone all over again:)

Dear all,

I'm not certain if it was noted but this nice piece of software unbricks the 9900 that had only a blackscreen and a red light as main feature after a couple of weeks of use. (or at least it fixed mine that had the problem...) imagine the party in my head when i discovered that...
