Default OS: 8900 4.6.1.317/4.6.1.206 (English + Multi Language)

Please Login to Remove!

Software For BlackBerry® Curve (TM) 8900 smartphone

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.1.317 (English + Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.6.1.317
Consisting of:
Applications: 4.6.1.206
Software Platform: 4.2.0.102
File name: 8900M_PBr4.6.1_rel317_PL4.2.0.102_A4.6.1.206.exe
File size: 122.34MB
Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

Downlaod Here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...223C61B1B5AB89

Instructions to install on ANY 8900 from ANY 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.

For the previous OS:

Install was nice and easy. I did delete the browser cache, then changed the theme to one of the originals. I also was lucky cause when I plugged the BB to the laptop the autoback up ran. So this time I had to backfiles in case of a power outage or other problems. Aloha!

Wuhu! I just love new releases of BB OSes. Downloading right now. Official BB servers sucks, because it's downloading so slow from them...

Thought maybe the fact that it was my carrier might have meant I could do wireless OS update... The answer was no...

Downloading. The last OS (4.6.1.199) wasn't so good on battery life.

Default Easy upgrade question

I am using BES; when upgrading to new OS after installing enterprise activation start automatically. Will this end up giving duplicates in calendar, address, etc. If so how do I get around this? Thanks
