Latest OS: 8130 OS v4.5.0.186 from Cellular South (Multilanguage)
Moderators: I can't post links as yet, so please fix and edit. :)

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.311 (Multilanguage)

Package Version:
Consisting of:
Software Platform:
File name: 8130AMEA_PBr4.5.0_rel311_PL3.4.0.59_A4.5.0.186_Cel lular_South.exe
File size: 88.02MB

Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.


Instructions for installing on ANY carrier's 8130:

1. Download the above OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.
2. Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file named "vendor.xml." Vista/Win7 users: In the apploader folder, simply click on "Compatibility files" to see the actual Vendor.xml file. Once you've got that - simply delete the vendor.xml file there (even if you've deleted or think you've deleted it in the folder previously) and voila, it will allow you to update to the newly installed OS!
3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file.

The process takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how much data you have to backup and restore during the process. Once it's done loading the new OS it will reboot (it may do this twice during the entire process.) You will see a white screen with an hourglass for up to 20 minutes at a time while the DM says "waiting for initialization."
If, for some reason, you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply connect to the PC again and run Loader.exe again and it should load the OS to the device.

How to determine if you have an ESN or MEID based device.
From the main menu, select Options, then select Status.
ESN devices - On the Status screen you will see ESN on the display
MEID devices On the Status screen you will see MEID on the display.
NOTE You cannot install ESN-based software on a MEID device, nor can you install MEID-based software on an ESN device. They are NOT interchangeable.

I'm sure this is a stupid question (and I tried to figure it out on my own) but is this an ESN, or MEID update?

You can't update or change the ESN or MEID on your device.

Wow. My question is which kind of device is this OS for, ESN or MEID? I have an ESN phone, can I apply this update to it or no?
