Default OS: 8530 5.0.0.626/5.0.0.395 (Multilanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.626 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 5.0.0.626
Consisting of:

* Applications: 5.0.0.395
* Software Platform: 4.2.0.167
* File name: 8530AMEA_PBr5.0.0_rel626_PL4.2.0.167_A5.0.0.395_Sp rint.exe
* File size: 96.67MB

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...BB765225CE8C0E

Instructions to install, regardless of carrier.

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 OS located here: Latest OS: 8530 5.0.0.523/5.0.0.337 (Multilanguage)

um, ya it will... Operating Software is designed for each device specifically. 8530 software will not operate on an 8520 and vice versa.

I use Seesmic and Snaptu with no problems. I use those because they're server-based and are usually much faster than the others, which feel veeerrry slow to me.
