Default Latest OS: 9000 5.0.0.661/5.0.0.411 (English +East Asian)

Please Login to Remove!

BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.661 (EastAsia and Multilanguage)

Package Version: 5.0.0.661
Consisting of:

* Applications: 5.0.0.411
* Software Platform: 5.2.0.33
* File name: 9000jEastAsia_PBr5.0.0_rel661_PL5.2.0.33_A5.0.0.41 1_Bell_Mobility_Inc.exe
* File size: 118.43MB

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

* Download Software:
Multilanguage version OS: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...38397FABBA902E
EastAsian version OS: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...646D38BC2145CA

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: http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...n-english.html

That's right! Took long enough. Don't know why they went with 411 as official. But hey, its a decent build. Could use a little work in the memory management department. But boot up time is great. About 1:45 for me

If you're running the .411 beta , no need to upgrade.

This update doesn't even fix the camera bug with only two buttons working.

Poor.

I'm really disappointed that this official release doesn't differ at all from the beta release of the same version. I.e. camera bugs and no VVM.

...remain happy with the .411 (beta now official) build. Glad I waited for the current strongest 9000 OS! Camera bug doesn't bother me as I can get by. Took the vvm cods from 9700's OS, works great (Search-you'll find exactly what cods are needed for vvm). Stay strong, don't panic, be patient, search these forums for mostly all BB answers and have a great 2010!
