Default OS: 8350i v4.6.1.142 / 4.6.1.83 (English + Multilanguage)

Software For BlackBerry® 8350i smartphone

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.1.142 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.6.1.142
Consisting of:
Applications: 4.6.1.83
Software Platform: 3.0.0.41
File name: OrionAMEA_PBr4.6.1_rel142_PL3.0.0.41_A4.6.1.83_Nex tel.exe
File size: 83.16MB

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


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

Download here:https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...B9D5EE16489088

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."
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.

Thanks to Adam_777

THANK YOU for posting this. It's also this OS update that fixes the dreaded MMS issue of cannot receive until the phone is restarted. I'm trying to get this out, because our call centers are being FLOODED with calls right now regarding the issue.

I saw someone on another forum claim that it was the same os that is on their device, but I know it's resolving the issue somehow.

Mine came with v4.6.1.83, not this one. Giving it a shot now, as I'm having issues with service books being rejected.

Before I go and do this, has anyone successfully upgraded their 8350i from 4.6.1.83 to 4.6.1.142? Will I need to reload all my third party apps after the upgrade?

Everything should stay as is, you might have to re-register some of them though.

Hey zerog, you're a mod... you should know all things BlackBerry.. how should I be reading the BlackBerry download page? I've copied and pasted here:

Software For BlackBerry® 8350i smartphone

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.1.142 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.6.1.142
Consisting of:
Applications: 4.6.1.83
Software Platform: 3.0.0.41
File name: OrionAMEA_PBr4.6.1_rel142_PL3.0.0.41_A4.6.1.83_Nex tel.exe

If I look at my Options/About, this is exactly the same application and platform that was shipped on this first run of 8350i's that we all have, correct?
Am I missing something here? I've done enough OS upgrades on various 'berries that I thought I knew what to look for...

I'm following the instructions in the first post, but I get to the "Completing the Application Loader Wizard" screen and it says nothing about upgrading the OS. Here's what it says (I didn't change any of the options on the preceding page) -- is this correct?

Oh, and one other thing: when I go to "Options > About", it lists the OS as "4.6.1.83". However, if I press ALT-SHIFT-H from the home page to bring up the 'Help Me' screen, it lists the OS as "4.6.1.83 (142)". Does this mean I already have the 4.6.1.142 OS? No where on the "Options > About" screen does it reference the "142" version, but it is listed on the ALT-SHIFT-H screen. Help me

Question, is it absolutley neccessary to delete the vendor file xml since this software is device specific? Also after I downloaded to my Vista laptop i went to the program files and didn't see the vendor xml file to delete, any thoughts?
