Default Latest OS: 8910 5.0.0.1023/5.0.0.608 (EastAsia)

Please Login to Remove!

BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.1023 (EastAsia)

Package Version: 5.0.0.1023
Consisting of:

* Applications: 5.0.0.608
* Software Platform: 5.2.0.43
* File name: 8910EastAsia_PBr5.0.0_rel1023_PL5.2.0.43_A5.0.0.60 8_China_Mobile_Hong_Kong_Co._Ltd.exe
* File size: 125.81MB

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

* Download Software: https://w ww.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=89885FF2C83A10305EE08BD507C1049C

Instructions to install on ANY 8910 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." Vista/Win7 users: In the apploader folder, simply click on "Compatibility files" to see the actual Vendor.xml file. Once you've got that - simply delete the vendor.xml file there (even if you've deleted or think you've deleted it in the folder previously) and voila, it will allow you to update to the newly installed OS!
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.


(*mods, please fix link - thanks)

Default 8910, not 8900

The OP's message was about the software download for the 8910, not the 8900. Perhaps the thread should be a separate sticky at the top of this forum?

I don't think the thread has been stickied because this device has not been officially released/announced.
