Verizon OS Release

Finally, the waiting and anticipation is over. Verizon has started pushing OS 5.0.0.328 to BlackBerry Desktop Manager for all Storm owners to install 24 minutes after we leaked it. If you haven't gotten the alert already it's time to fire up BlackBerry Desktop Manager Software (you too Mac users!) and see if it's there waiting for you. It's now up at http://vzw.smithmicro.com/blackberry/ as well.

OS 5.0 brings with it some significant changes to the OS and should correct a lot of issues some of you were having with your BlackBerry Storm 9530's and being an official OS you can load it without any worries of running beta software. Already got it loaded up? What do you think of it? How is it working for you? Let us know in the forums or in the comments. Now the question remains. How long will it be before we see other carriers hop on board and start releasing 5.0 for other devices?

YESSSSSS!!!!! finally lol

mbecker319

i have an unlocked storm which i use on att....if i update to 5.0 will the service books that i cut and pasted on my 4.7 software still work....or can i do the update and not worry?

elusiveaura

Downloading the leaked .328 you leaked 30 mins ago. No difference in this and what they have on DM, correct?

xantius

i wanted to post it where most people can see it:

http://appstore.vzw.com.edgesuite.net/download/firmware/BB9530MR3/9530AM...

i don't know if it's displaying properly, and i don't know how to post it as a link, so i'll paste it in sections:

http://appstore.vzw.com.edgesuite.net/
download/firmware/BB9530MR3/
9530AMEA_PBr5_1_.0.0_rel508_PL4.2.0.128_A5.0.0.328.exe

i hope you can figure out what goes where...

- installed it in 15 mins (includes the reboots, backup & restore)

- voice dialing still doesn't seem to work tho

Jaybrown81

When is the official release coming to the curve 8900????!!!

blacktoothberry

go to the curve forums I dont think anyone here cares

vic_machu19

be helpfull and not hatefull thank you

borderpatrol1987

Everytime there was a leak for the 8900,9000, or hell, anything. Storm whiners were there complaining about how it was not for them.

othersfirst

What about mac? It's not showing up in Mac Desktop?!?!?!

bakerskater010

shows up in mine....force quit and reopen

Neotide87#CB

It showed up instantly for me. Close Desktop manager and plug in BB and it should load DM up and that is when it prompted me for new updates available

LadyBug1383

Shut down DM for Mac and restart it, and it should pop up.

hairy blackberry

i told you it would come out between 7-7:30 pst

nextyear

im downloading now how long does it take ?

allboutvzwStorm

Give or take a few minutes

allboutvzwStorm

I am upgrading right now...

Neotide87#CB

AtanRaca

Updating now and so far so good... TGFCB ( Thank God For CrackBerry)

dweasel36

anyone get a pin message yet?

AndrewLjubi

My download started off fast and is crawling along now - I'm sure BB's servers are getting slammed with people that want a storm that works.

Nash_Vegas

DM's working it's magic... it's stuck on downloading 346 modules, probably tons of traffic right now.

Neotide87#CB

lol yea hopefully their server doesnt crash with the overload in downloads

kbibyjr

I wish AT&T was this quick to push out OS5.0 for the Bold. Have fun Storm owners :(

dsvc1989

I wish AT&T had 5.0 out already for the Bold too. I haven't even been able to test out a beta bc i use a Mac.

Yodes

Othersfirst, I had an issue where my DM wasnt showing the update after it was supposedly released. Tryed restarting the DM and still no luck. Rebooted the whole system and then it came right up, worth a try. Hope you get it!

StreetDocRN

Hey, maybe Verizon will treat us for Halloween and give us the 5.0 upgrade officially. We will see this week.

Doc

StreetDocRN

I meant to say for us Tour owners...sorry. Left that big word out the post.

cipher978

loading it up on my fucked up storm with a black screen to see if anything happens....i doubt it but whats to loose besides a shitty ass storm with a black screen? the storm is up though...i think?

Sturta

I thought I was heading for bed! Oh well, I can sleep when I'm dead.

bakerskater010

My download is still surprisingly quick..270 left of 480 files in 2 minutes!

buzzdar

LadyBug1383

WaiTec

I believe I got the update, but only the core applications. It didn't change my OS version. Still shows .323 not .328.

cssandor

Already downloading the Megaupload file....while updating using Desktop Manager...gotta love this!

killian1212

Shrinking and installing over my .323.....almost done!!!!

jonzey231#CB

Rig415

They said it was coming tonight and there it was... 10:15... I am loading as we speak... i Truely hope that this will keep me from caring about the storm2... for the time being..... Good luck to all hope it is a smooth load...

xaronax

I'm still running desktop software 4.7 so that Tetherberry works. 5.0 Desktop software is the only update showing in my update window. Do I need to have this to see the 5.0 device software?

gtroddy

I hope Sprint will be so gracious and give us the 5.0 for the Tour just as quick.

syquest1

Yeah right...Sprint is slow as snails

BlackStorm1990

YESSSSSSS!!!! about freaking time! nice way to end a sunday. :)

springerfan

yup! cant wait for March 2010

clos101

I'm on a mac, the update stalled. Said it couldn't get the files due to a network problem.

We're swamping the system!! lol

bean34

when is it coming out for the Tour?

VFTHEMOUTH

For everyone waiting for a offical OS. Well here you have it. Good luck. For the rest of the crackberry nation. Keep informing.

bandityo

bakerskater010

Trovo05

jonzey231#CB

I hope the 3G icon is back i loved that little thing!

walt87jm

clos101

Apparently it did get all the os files on the Mac BBDM re-initializing device now... woohoo!

Cugino

I started download about 25 minutes ago and everything seems to be going fine. All that's left is to restore my data.

jeff.brown

I hope they update QuickPull to work with 5.0 now that it is official.

mbusitim

I'm hoping with 5.0 I don't NEED QuickPull! Had to reboot sometimes twice a day with 4.7! Here's to hoping they got it right this time!

Captain_Choppy

Download over DM is going painfully slooooow :(

Trovo05

115 mods away!!! keep going little guy keep going!!! lol

jonzey231#CB

HELL to the YEEESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!

bryner

bakerskater010

cory6585

XCalibration17

I want the official tour 5.0!!! Let's hope it's not far behind!!

ecko4life1972

Just got a fatal error while trying to install after downloading... :(.... Im gonna try to downgrade to .148 then upgrade to .328 maybe its because i had a hybrid installed... maybe that was the problem...

junx69

Will this update be available ota from the device or DM only?

boroberry44

downloading now, but looks like it comes with bbm 4.7 instead of 5.0????

pervamat

Been waiting all day for this!!!! Can't Wait! Go baby go!

StormChaser1776

Downloading really slow...
Exciting!

bakerskater010

WHOA WTF... just started to install and my storm randomly restarted and it failed?!?!

Alex32

IM ABOUT TO UPGRADE FROM LEAKED .323 TO .328 GUYS SHOULD I DOWNGRADE FROM THE LEAKE OS OR JUST UPGRADE OVER IT????

Neotide87#CB

i upgraded over it and it worked fine.

jonzey231#CB

167 of 300 go go go!!!!!

Pilot Prop

dang, when will the Bold get an official release?

howl078

Yihaaaaaa!!!! Downloading now!!! Thnx CB.

Seel

I logged into Crackberry about 20 minutes ago expecting a typical Verizon delay on this being an official OS... then BAM... I rush to DM and begin the download... NIIIIICE!!! I will let you know how it goes... 184 of 327 Mods right now. PS- Why does everyone have a different number of total MODs being downloaded?

relkma

is this good or what?

TreborK

Downloading now. Yay!

Dr Incredible

Got 5.0 installed from the Application Loader! Last "Wait for device initialization" took for ever though in case someone thinks it locked up.

cendrik

it's up and running now I just new to finish restoring all the bits and pieces make sure we didn't loose any thing in the process and play play play with the toy just like it was a new toy all over again. It is so pretty. 3G is gone still.

alexbuckner11

Is there a site i can use to upgrade to 5.0 via OTA? My BES will not let me use the upgrade option......

negro_jr

Just started upgrading!! I've been going back and forth all day waiting.... This is one happy guy!

andybed33

is there a wireless update

cpuking2009

told u it was only 10 min away. my guess was off by a bit but still.

cpuking2009

told u it was only 10 min away. my guess was off by a bit but still. let it be known i tweeted this before anyone! :D

slavetomyberry

long time lurker, especially today. So excited to check out the new os, downloading now

SanguinX

I happen to be working nights for the next week to cover the backup/reboot guy......yay now I have somehting to do.

theapple

anyone get this via the OTA? I've been checking periodically and I've seen nothing. I'm running 5.0.0.230 would that have anything to do with it not showing up? It shouldn't make a difference, should it? Do I need to Downgrade to .148? ><

jdisme1

Just read some of the other articles please.
There is no OTA update for this. Actually try and find an answer before posting useless questions.

theapple

Do you get off on saying things like this? All that needed to be said is that "there is no OTA update" and it would have been good. Also, if you would have read the other comments here, you would have seen that I am not the first to ask this.

keithwired

Dude, you asked a retarded question that was answered in the original post had you taken the time to read it. It's not like it's some obscure question that hasn't been answered yet, it's been said on Page 1 of comments and in the blogpost, open you damn eyes and read. I honestly hate people who don't bother to read shit and just ask their dumb ass questions anyways due to lazyness.

theapple

But there is no need to be a whiney little fucking bitch about it now is there ignore my comment and move on gtfo and go back to your homework. Ever heard the phrase "there is no such thing as a retarded question other than the one never asked?" and I did skim threw it and found nothing or I wouldn't have asked so do us all a favour and stop being a pissy bitch.

SpaceMonster

Sometimes it's not easy to read through twenty minutes of a particular thread to find an ansewr to a question you stupid retards. I agree with theapple you're just a bunch of whiney little bitches.

grundyman

dont worry about that apple, some of these people dont have anything better to do with their time. most likley they were called retards all their lives , so they look for others mistakes to make them selves look good

SHANTURN

YES FINALLY, DOWNLOAD IS MOVING RIGHT ALONG. BYE BYE .323 HELLO .328

calikola

Really hoping an official Tour release comes soon.

This may sound stupid, but will Verizon only release it for PC users, or will it be available for Mac too? I would think that logically, there would be releases for both platforms now.

c_patrick

come on verizon release the OS for the tour!

lalvesrn

Is anyone else having side issues in landscape. Had these issues with the leaked version and they are still here in the official version.Any way to get rid of them?????

mbusitim

I have two 3rd party themes on my storm and the graphics are screwy in landscape.. works fine with original theme (which sux!) Any solutions would be appreciated!

strmusr

change it to 1 row then to 2 rows and hit save ... its temp fix until your next battery pull...so you would then have to do it again... i can live with that till the devolepers for themes get it fixed...hope it helps

Irving94

THERE MAY BE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR NETWORK. HELP!!!!!!!

PeterStorm

can i get the update without going through the DM?

jonzey231#CB

287of 330!!!!!!! Ho faster

tkfox007

It was a freaking pain in the butt to install. Kept getting error messages and what not, saying there wasn't enough disk space and connection issues. Quit DM and did a battery pull, deleted all the text, pic, email and whatnot messages and it started to load the new OS, now it's restarting been at the 2/3 mark though

ceejay776

Did anyone else notice that on the update site it is a picture of the storm2 and not the storm 1!??!?

BlkWolf03

First thing I noticed lol

jgreenage

wish I could find my micro usb cable.....

geo211

I just upgraded to the 5.0 OS for the Storm 9530 and my BBM 5.0 got deleted?

Anyone else have this issue?

Anything I can do to get it back?

cpuking2009

go to www.blackberry.com/messenger from ur storms browser and re-download it!

geo211

thank you! it took a while to work but it restore it

thankfully i had backed up my contacts using the new feature of bbm 5.0 and was able to restore all of them no problem

gmo4x4

Whats the fix to getting all the contacts back to BBM since it was backed up

wazzugrad

If you go into BBM, and hit the BB button, find restore contacts, and there you go.

deke09

My BBM disappeared, too. I don't believe I backed-up contacts, but I'm going through the process now...we'll see...

maddie1128

Is 5.0 the latest version of DM??

Bolo Banderas

I have been checking CB every 10-20 minutes since 5pm. Installing now...can't wait...

kmelewski

Download Manager failed to update while applications were re-loading. Phone is bricked. Taking it to Verizon tomorrow...

AtanRaca

All done here, took a little over 30 min

jonzey231#CB

Hey it is a storm2 on there haha. Good eye ceejay.

jefferycall

I just attempted the download and and now my storm is frozen with a 504 error code. Not sure what to do now. Anyone else experience a similar problem?

Rig415

The BlackBerry Load screen is so much nicer looking... the all black screen with the with Blackberry Logo and load bar has me very excited for what is waiting for me.... Wish i had less apps.. the wifes started 20 mins behind me and is almost done.. Ohhh the waiting...... Is the hardest part...

Jaycs

"the candyman can cause he mixes with it with love and makes the world taste good."

On a serious note, amazing upgrade. I'm easing off thinking of getting the sequel to this fine piece.

Neotide87#CB

is it the official or the megaupload version?

sevy

i noticed that too...disappointing. I thought we were finally out of the 1xev era

Nash_Vegas

If it's been stuck at loading 0 of the modules for 45 minutes or more, how can I reset or restart the update? Is is safe to unplug? Thanks!

Nash_Vegas

Cancel is greyed out. Not an option. No modules downloaded yet. Device screen shows connection logos. Hummm....

allboutvzwStorm

See if you can force Desktop Manager to quit. That's odd, I've been reading other people are having the same problem. Mine just got finished. It might be because so many people are downloading right now, maybe you got snagged.

cpuking2009

finishing restoring my data now if it blows im downgrading back to 4.7.0.167 that was the best build so far period!

DrJohnH

25 minutes, not a glitch on the install. All of my 3rd party apps work fine. Only problem light still dims in landscape. Not much different from .323.

Neotide87#CB

Just installed and I am not seeing any big diffs between each OS. Camera, texting, Brower, all work identical as far as i see

Obstreperouss99

Anyone getting an error while downloading OS 5.0 on Desktop Manager for Mac. Starts to download smoothly but then comes up with an error. Happened twice, dont know what is wrong. Maybe the server is overloaded? Anyone else get this error, need help!!

Neotide87#CB

Force Quit DM and unplug BB and then plug in BB and it should autostart for you. That is what I did but I also didnt get an error, make sure you got latest version of DM for mac as well. Hope this helps

LadyBug1383

I;m getting the app error 523. The OS is on my phone, but it keeps showing this error. It keeps restarting.

tightchevelle69

been at it almost an hour now... stuck on "downloaded modules 102 of 347" what should i do? its been on that about 40 minutes now....help!

slavetomyberry

Time to play and see what's new and exciting. Sleep is over rated anyway.

jav-04

Anyone wants to take bets to see how long before verizon servers are going to be fried tonite

tkfox007

This update is infuriating, it's like it reset the phone back to it's factory defaults and I have to reinstall everything and it keeps giving me some sort of java error and I gotta reset everything back to the way I liked it.

thesamoflange

I keep getting those too. In addition to a "missing resource" warning. Not sure what to do about that.

walt87jm

i got the msg reload software 507? wtf!!!! what do i do?

mkjohnson0212

Just finishing DLing the update. I feel like it was x-mas and I got a new phone. So excited, this is how it should have worked in the first place.

teamgato

Just Downloaded fine now i'm going to play with and see what's up

chanel_sledge

finally done rebooting. has anyone noticed any major changes yet?

Jaycs

loading applications. i hope i don't get some error notification or something because ill just give up and wait 3 days for the storm 2

tutor

About the only notice I see besides the ring and vibrate option in the profiles, is the screen slides up or down much smoother... at least I convinced myself it does... lol.
Is there a place that lists the upgrades changes/fixes?
Using the DM and Verizon upgrade went with out a hitch.

mkjohnson0212

Where is the BMM? I can't seem to find it!

cyndiy777

upgrade from 5.0.0,323 to 328 running good everything pop back on except bbm 5

vibratot49

if i keep getting this message, is it because of me? or the server to download is overloaded!? help!

heres the link: http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/9302/picture1ub.png

this is a great os upgrade glad the Storm was first!! i got to play with the Storm 2 today at Bestbuy and it was niceeeeeeeee

Neotide87#CB

Real or Dummy model? I work at Best Buy in Indy and me curious?

winstoncbull

With Telus and installing the Leak...hopefully the memory leak is gone..

dizzy909

wooo, installing :D finally, lets see if its better than .167 :)

wazzugrad

Seems to be speeding up, only about ten minutes and i am 300 modules. Hope i didnt speak to soon.

methamp

Does anyone have a change log on what exactly is different/upgraded/removed from 5.0.0.323 that we've all been running from the leaks to the Verizon official 5.0.0.328?

bean34

When's the Tour update going to be realesed?

allboutvzwStorm

OMG I feel like this is a whole new phone, very responsive now. Every time I touch the screen it changes.

jonzey231#CB

began process at 10:36, its still loading application modules! GAY!! You need to go faster DM!!!

fizad99

dont see pop up letters when texting.. not in the options.. what the hell this sucks...

ricking

very fast and very smooth

sghere

Doesn't lag as much as 323 did...overall more responsive and didn't have a single problem with the upgrade!!

First for everything. ;)

robloush

Can i download and use this update if im on Bell, not verizon? thanks

Guyton101

Works Wonderful took 35 min and 17 sec..

Love the IM text ..

Love the fast camera ..

no waiting symbol...

rotated great .. fast.

But will check back to see in a week if it stands up. to performance for everyone

lumpysherman

Came up from 323, seems a bit better so far. When can we expect the next beta?

Stormlos

I'm finally up and running, it took me about 45 min. but it loaded pretty smoothly. Time to play around with it!!

eprindes

getting uncaught exceptions

ricking

it is sweet as honey butter, and wow when i get the storm 2 all i need is rest and peace thank god to all those who have help me and my crackberry friends.

gadgetaddict#CB

Love it. Seems similar to 323. I never noticed I could click my signal meter as a short cut to connections,or, clicking the time goes to bedside mode. The screen movements are very smooth and I'm (still) excited about my storm again.

njbadboy00

i lost my blackberry messenger...anyone have the same problem?

Julran

Yea I did too. you can re download from appworld or blackberry.com/messenger from ur phone browser

brinklej

from your phone browser go to www.blackberry.com/messenger and install it from there.

halleberry68

I'm not seeing 5.0.0.328 update on my desktop manager. I need help!!!

Guyton101

go to app world and reinstall it .. Mine came back up.. BBM is just not on home wall

scustred

It does seem to be more responsive overall. It did move a couple apps from one folder to another, and I had to reset all my setting for 3rd party apps. And is it my imagination, or does the camera function itself also seem much faster. So far, so good!

lunglady

Went from 323 to 328. No problems with installation. So far not seeing anything significantly different.....

Neotide87#CB

No luck on getting Google maps to take me out of full keyboard mode to fill screen. I thought .328 would fix that but google must have forgotten about the storm with their 3.2 update

lunglady

The white bars are gone when going from portrait to landscape! Yaaay!!!!

scustred

if you are missing your white bars...it looks like I have them now and I would love to give them back! How do I get rid of them?

Ji13Jip

Anybody has any ideas of when it will be released in Australia for 9500???

hairy blackberry

im not really seeing anything positive about his update.. so my question is, is it worth updating?

chino03

HELP!!!! Landscape mode has white on the edges and my icons seem to drag when i move the screen up or down.

Neotide87#CB

you restarted BB after update was complete or did you just take the cable out from the customer and start playing with it?

FNETHAN

this is badass, finally

PeterStorm

how come the update is not on my DM? my DM is 5.0

brianklewis1

For some reason they removed the AOL instant messenger sounds. Just transferred the .wav files from my computer to my Blackberry.

Jaycs

wheres my BBM? i just finished downloading the new OS and now my BBM is gone??

brianna117

That's pretty! My phone is only on the boot up screen and I already like it better!!!!

nexpos

Got it, downloaded, and installed. Had .148 official. The display blacks out and never comes back. Takes a battery pull each time to get it to come on, then the display disappears. Putting it into USB dock does nothing. Any ideas? Heading to forums now.......

ShAdoWSKy

ive tried DM and a wireless update check on my phone and i still dont see the update for me
