Post Latest OS : Bold 9000 4.6.0.292/4.6.0.162 (EastAsia)

Please Login to Remove!

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.0.292 (EastAsia)

Package Version: 4.6.0.292
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.6.0.162
* Software Platform: 4.0.0.155
* File name: 9000jEastAsia_PBr4.6.0_rel292_PL4.0.0.155_A4.6.0.1 62_CSL.exe
* File size: 94.73MB

Both OS versions linked below are identical except for the language files included.
Both versions include English


If you desire East Asian languages included in the OS, download the OS here:
Select "...9000 smartphone" from the pull-down list:
https://www.blackberry.com/SoftwareD...ient=cB5RB4aRB

Download MultiLanguage version here (from Rogers):
Download here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...C068A355BBA31A

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: Latest OS : Bold 9000 4.6.0.268/4.6.0.147 (English + MultiLanguage)

I have 4.6.0.162 (292) on my Bold, updated it yesterday.

So far battery life has been great although I keep it on 2G 90% of the time.
No issues with WIFI, except browser still sucks, faster but slower and hangs occasionally. Memory does not leak as much as previous versions.

But otherwise no issues to report.

Download .155, uninstall your old firmware, install .155 plug your phone and start DM 4.6, then click upgrade... during the process it will give you the list of the available languages, which you should be able to tell if does support German or not.. If not just click cancel and no harm will be done, simple! :D

Don't confuse the guy. It's called .162 and not by the platform number .155.

Ya, this one deserved to be a posted carrier release. I'm hesitant to upgrade from this one, since it was so good.

And what OS are you running on your bold? When we talk about our OS's that we are running we are usually referring to the application number and not the platform or release number.

Just installed ver. 4.6.0.167 also, working great, seems that the actual response from the ball and clicks is much faster.

Installed .147 today and now my bookmark key (k) does no longer work when using the BB browser. It still works with the Rogers browser. Any suggestions?

Got a quick and maybe dumb question for you guys . . . since about 2 or 3 weeks ago , I can not make any backups to my Bold , I even made a thread in the forum about that , and I still can't , so if I want to do an upgrade , will this be an issue for me ?? will this represent any trouble ?? will I get a general reset because of this ?? or will it be like any other upgrade where my BB Bold stays exactly the same just with a different OS version ?? thanks you guys !!

Default New OS

Downloaded the new OS .162 last night and so far so good. Thanks for such clear instructions, Jeremy.

A question - should the new OS supposed to further improve battery life? I already noticed improvement when I downloaded the last version 0.147. Hopefully, it should improve further...has anyone who downloaded it earlier noticed any further improvements?
