Default OS: 8350i 4.6.1.316/4.6.1.204 (Multilanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.1.316 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.6.1.316
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.6.1.204
* Software Platform: 3.0.0.73
* File name: 8350iAMEA_PBr4.6.1_rel316_PL3.0.0.73_A4.6.1.204.ex e
* File size: 83.66MB

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.

Previous Version: Latest OS: 8350i 4.6.1.142/4.6.1.128 (Multilanguage)

The online updater is still showing .128 as the latest but in the downloads you will find the latest .316 as posted above...

PS: even the sprint.com/downloads shows .128 so for now have to use the download method..

I think thats the same thing>>>
Run from pc?
Open desktop?

Do you mean run from pc as run blackberry.com/downloads? If yes then yeah that will work fine. Also you can just download the software post above for your device and install it via BB desktop manager....
At this point either will work.

Goodluck

What error message did you get? Also did you try the BB online updater?
It works really great, used it many times.

Here is the direct link
na.blackberry.com/eng/update/

Just plug in your device and click "check for updates"...

Goodluck

Wirelessly posted (7100i)

On the sprint site is a note that explains that the orginal message fix for mms did not make it into .204. It will however be resolved via a pushed service book sometime around april 10th.

I just loaded it on my PC and the vendor.xml file is not there. I upgraded the OS back in February and remember doing that step. Has something changed? I don't want to start the process on my 8350i without doing that stem, I'm afraid it will mess it up.
