Default OS: 9000 4.6.0.451/4.6.0.266 (Multilanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.0.451
Multilanguage; contains English
From Vodafone UK; This will load to any carrier's 9000.

Software For BlackBerry® Bold (TM) 9000 smartphone BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.0.451 (Multilanguage)
Package Version: 4.6.0.451
Consisting of:
  • Applications: 4.6.0.266
  • Software Platform: 4.0.0.223
  • File name: 9000M_PBr4.6.0_rel451_PL4.0.0.223_A4.6.0.266_Vodaf one_UK.exe
  • File size: 96.67MB
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...05D7C424EBAE5F

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 AppLoader 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.

Previous OS version here:

Will work with any carrier. Just delete the vendor.xml file before the upgrade.

Installed, and BES activated too... seems fine, I can not spot anything yet that has changed since last release - such a shame that we do not have access to release notes.

I was not very happy with the previous OS, which for me was 9000M_PBr4.6.0_rel418_PL4.0.0.206_A4.6.0.247.exe ... I felt that I had more call drop-outs than with previous installs, plus the home wi-fi connection seems to be sporadic - and the battery seemed to degrade faster too.

Let's see what this newer release will do!

I don't notice a difference between this and the 266 beta, but that is fine, since it is very stable and very responsive. Battery seems the same as 247.

.266 is .266 regardless if it is the beta version or the carrier released version.

Looking for feedback on this version versus 247.

I tried the beta 5.0 and it was way too slow so I downgraded to 4.6.0.247. Will do the 266 gig over the weekend.
