Default OS: 8900 4.6.1.456/4.6.1.310 (Multilanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

Software For BlackBerry® Curve (TM) 8900 smartphone BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.1.456 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.6.1.456
Consisting of:
  • Applications: 4.6.1.310
  • Software Platform: 4.2.0.127
  • 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 the OS file here:
https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...F22A6C2A830A17

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:

sensemt, you'll need an OS with the words "EastAsian" in the file name to get the Korean language.

Hi,

The previous version (298) didn´t create an Add/Remove item in the Windows Control Panel.

Will try this.

Just so we're clear, I've tried searching for this but I guess my "mojo" is off. I couldn't find anything. I'm tring to upgrade but everytime I double click on apploader, it says "no action required". I also tried it through Desktop Manager to no avail. I deleted the vendor file before trying both methods and I see the OS under the Loader Files folder. What am I missing?

Default I 've installed it...

I've installed the EastAsian one and now my version is4.6.1.310 (Platform 4.2.0.127) but I still cannot type nor read korean.

I drew out CJK file from the java folder and tried to upload it using AppLoader, but it said it's not supported for this phone...

can someone tell me what the hack is going on? I'm so upset

:(

Sometimes these threads give us a little glimpse of what customer service reps have to deal with on a daily basis.

I am always have a little more empathy for them after reading these.

The new OS is still running good for me.
