Default OS: 9100 5.0.0.1262 / 5.0.0.748 (MultiLanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.1170 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 5.0.0.1262
Consisting of:

* Applications: 5.0.0.6748
* Software Platform: 6.2.0.69
* File name: 9100_9105M_PBr5.0.0_rel1262_PL6.2.0.69_A5.0.0.748. exe
* File size: 127MB

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

* Download Software: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...024130F58C5CFA

Instructions for installing on ANY carrier's 9100:

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 black "BlackBerry" screen with a status bar 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.

Did you delete the vendor.xml? If so, then it is likely not compatible. I don't recall if the 9100 and the 9105 are the same OS. The 7100 and 7105 were but not sure about this one.

I did delete vendor.xml...
the os is compatible because the file was called **9100/9105** and it tells me when I tried a 8100 os file on 8120 device that the os is not compatible....here it told me that my os is actually newer.

how can this be? where shall I look in about screen for my os version?

You have an engineering model. Who knows what code is on it.

It means that your engineering BlackBerry that you can't use has a newer version of the OS than the one released here.

You have 5.0.0.823.
The version released here is 5.0.0.748 (which is older than 823).
