Default Latest OS: 8900 4.6.1.176/4.6.1.109 (Multilanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

Software For BlackBerry® Curve (TM) 8900 smartphone
From Vodafone DE; this will load on any carrier's 8900 device.

Software For BlackBerry® Curve (TM) 8900 smartphone

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.1.176 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.6.1.176
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.6.1.109
* Software Platform: 4.2.0.74
* File name: 8900M_PBr4.6.1_rel176_PL4.2.0.74_A4.6.1.109_Vodafo ne_Germany.exe
* File size: 121.17MB

Download here:
https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...374C8919D2074E

Instructions for installing either version on ANY carrier's 8900:

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.

For the previous OS for this device, click here:

in .101 the curve freezes in profiles, when you will edit your notification-tones
and in the alarm-clock you can't activate any tone

the .109 runs fast and perfect!!!
