Latest OS : Bold 9000 4.6.0.268/4.6.0.147 (English + MultiLanguage)
 
BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.0.268 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.6.0.268
Consisting of:

Applications: 4.6.0.147
Software Platform: 4.0.0.144
File name: 9000M_PBr4.6.0_rel268_PL4.0.0.144_A4.6.0.147_Orang e_France.exe
File size: 93.06MB


Select "...9000 smartphone" from the pull-down list:
https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...A5DFF913DF997A


1. Make sure you have Desktop Manager 4.6 installed. Older versions will load the OS but may not be full compatible with all the memory of the Bold. You can get DM 4.6 here:
Vodafone Germany
2. Download the above OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running the file you downloaded.
3. Locate the vendor.xml file and delete it. It's located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader
4. Plug in BB and Open Desktop Manager. You should be prompted to upgrade.
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 you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply connect to DM again and run application loader again and it should load the OS to the device.

Previous OS version for the 9000: http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...languages.html

Also available, the EastAsia/CSL bundle of the same version:

Even 4.6.0.150 is not the latest in existence. I've posted on 4.6.0.147 as this is currently the latest official (non-beta) release.

Hi,

I've upgraded from 4.6.0.243/4.6.0.126 to this OS. Now I've got an Problem with im+. Every time I start im+ I runs through the connection tests.
The more importent problem is that im+ doesn't accept my licens code any more. It always tells me the code isn't correct.
But the code is valid. I installes im+ on my brand new BlackBerry Bold two days ago. Same version, same code. There it worked.

Any way to solve this?

I doubt that your problem is caused by the newer OS version. I would do the following in an attempt to get the app working:

1. Verify your APN settings (Options->Advanced Options->TCP).
2. Re-install the app.
3. Get help from IM+ support.

You should have a file, named LoaderBackup-(2008-09-xx).ipd, somewhere on the machine where you did your last upgrade. You can open this file with Desktop Manager and selectively restore your contacts.

Will be upgrading from .144 when I get home, any noticable changes/improvements?

Medic48 09-20-2008 11:07 PM

Just updated from .144 to .147 in record time (under 15 minutes).

That shockes me too, my curve always took about 60-75min to upgrade.

princep 09-21-2008 04:22 AM

Yes I upgraded to the previous versions, and now to this one. It only took me like 15 min too. It seems, that Bold is way to fast

ricpac 09-21-2008 05:15 AM

I'm about to upgrade a friend's Bold to this.
Wish us luck!

EM996 09-21-2008 10:01 AM

thanks for the link... just successfully upgraded the BOLD.
with the latest Desktop Manager, upgrading seems to be easy, with a full restore.

i love BlackBerry!!!!!!

Thanks for the link...

Wiith all the OS upgrades coming out fast and furious, I think I will wait to see what shakes out when the ATT final shows up. I seem to have a low volume issue and am running the .134, so I am hoping the next change will improve that.

bigberrygcm 09-21-2008 07:58 PM

I upgraded this evening....took about 30 mins to update after the download.
Looks good so far. Thanks for the link jeremy.
