Default Os 8900 :

Please Login to Remove!

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.1.456 (Multilanguage)

Package Version:

Consisting of:
* Applications:
* Software Platform:
* File name: 8900M_PBr4.6.1_rel456_PL4.2.0.127_A4.6.1.310_AVEA. exe
* File size: 123.35MB

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

Download :

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 version:

I tried this foreign OS, and lost speaker volume as some other have reportedly done. Went back to stock AT&T until 5.0 comes out! Some countries are lowering volume afraid of EU laws....
Stop asking your "government" to do everything for you... or they will own you.
