Default Latest OS: 8900 4.6.1.353/4.6.1.231 (English + East Asian)

Please Login to Remove!

Software For BlackBerry® Curve (TM) 8900 smartphone

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.1.353 (EastAsia) plus English

Package Version: 4.6.1.353
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.6.1.231
* Software Platform: 4.2.0.108
* File name: 8900jEastAsia_PBr4.6.1_rel353_PL4.2.0.108_A4.6.1.2 31_Hutchison.exe
* File size: 121.59MB

Download the OS here:
https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...2BAA6EBC8B872D

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:

Thanks Bolin.

As usual, don't know what's new until someone starts posting here what they find.

I downloaded it and installed on my laptop.
Then, run BDM to upgrade.

BDM said:

Click Options if you want to install the older applications.
I click Options,

But as you see, when I marked to choose the version installed on my laptop



and click Next, then



What is the problem?
How to upgrade my phone's firmware?

I noticed that in Firewall settings now I cannot change it to Disable. It displays with a small red lock.

How to remove it? Please tell me

Thank you for your help
I followed your steps but Loader could not run

Handheld Application Loader Wizard has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
