Default OS: 8520 5.0.0.1004/5.0.0.592 (Multilanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.1004 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 5.0.0.1004
Consisting of:

* Applications: 5.0.0.592
* Software Platform: 5.2.0.58
* File name: 8520wifiM_PBr5.0.0_rel1004_PL5.2.0.58_A5.0.0.592_W ind_Hellas.exe
* File size: 123.45MB

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

* Download Software: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...2B6049B8D9A202


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." 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.

Upgrade went on smoothly.

The process took less time than before (upgraded over bundle 5.0.0.860).

Will update more if see any anomaly.

Okay, runs blazing fast and seems to be a bit more free memory than with the last version. Only one quibble though; when using the media app, e.g playing a song or watching a video, if you click on the bar to fast forward, it does not accelerate as it did previously. Instead you can only skip second by second. Anyone else find this?

Reverting to previous OS when I get home. This build is a compatibility nightmare.

Shazam won't work. Null Pointer exceptions on BerryBlab. Media app not seeking properly. The list goes on.

Is there a DRM version of OS 5.0 for the 8520 yet? Unfortunately for Vodafone devices we need DRM signed device software updates...

Any help with this?

Huh???

If you have an 8520 with a BB data plan then this update will load to any 8520.

I am using Windows 7 x64 and I cannot find where it states "Compatibility Files"

Can anyone help?

EDIT: I was able to get it to go using BBSAK. On a different note, has anyone noticed decreased responsiveness with the touchpad using this build?

My Bb's still 4.6 should I jump it to the latest or upgrade 1 by one ?
By the way I've got so many apps inside, like splash money, phone tweak, doc 2 go ver 2.0 etc... Are these still compatible ? and how about the themes ?

Where to find the list of changes from this version ?

If its not compatible I would think about it later to upgrade.
Thanks.

You would just upgrade to the latest. You do not need to upgrade in a certain sequence.

Ignore that unless you have Windows 7. Locate and delete all copies of VENDOR.XML on your PC C: drive and it will be fine.
