OS: 9300 (English + East Asian)
Software For BlackBerry® Curve(TM) 9300 smartphone BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.1602 (EastAsia)

Package Version:
Consisting of:
  • Applications:
  • Software Platform:
  • File name: 9300jEastAsia_PBr5.0.0_rel1602_PL6.3.0.63_A5.0.0.9 77_StarHub_Ltd.exe

Download the OS file here:

Instructions to install, regardless of carrier.

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).
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 screen with an hourglass or 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.

Do you have the link for Verizon's version of OS 5 for a 9330?

Re: OS: 9300 (English + East Asian)
I am using WIND in Canada, and it took me 4 months talking to their Tech Support people to struggle with the Chinese Character support in my 9300. I've tried using the Device Software from Rogers/Bell/CMCC etc. to load the Chinese, but all failed until I read your post tell me to remove the vendor.xml file.

Thanks for this post; it helps me a lot.(y)

I have this OS installed on my 9300 (checked this info in the about screen). However, when I open up Blackberry Desktop Service, I could not locate "Language and Input Support" section! It could not be found on the list of applications. ):
