Default OS: 9530 4.7.0.107/4.7.0.75 from Verizon (Multilanguage)

Software For BlackBerry® Storm(TM) smartphone

Software Update for Blackberry 9530

This is for the 9530 model, and will load on any carrier's 9530.

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.7.0.107 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.7.0.107
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.7.0.75
* Software Platform: 4.0.0.94
* File name: 9530AMEA_PBr4.1.7.0_rel107_PL4.0.0.94_A4.7.0.75_Ve rizon.ex e
* File size: 102.85MB

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

Download software BlackBerry® Software Updates

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 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.

Didn't see the 9530 listed in the drop down list. Has anyone else tried downloading this?

Yes, the link in first post was mis-inserted and actually takes you to Software Download for Bell Mobility Inc.

Instead, go to vzam.net/blackberry (sorry - my post count is too low to post a full link ), select Personal Email, then drop down to 9530.

EDIT: Linkey fixed.

would this be any different then the .75 that was leaked last week...or is it the same (and not worth installing if you already have .75 via leaked version).

I'm still figuring it out. The files themselves are different.

The "Official" VZW distribution of 9530AMEA_PBr4.1.7.0_rel107_PL4.0.0.94_A4.7.0.75_Ve rizon.exe actually has a digital signature date of Friday, December 05, 2008 9:28:31 AM. This is 9 days later than the digital signature on the leaked version of 0.75.

The filesizes are NOT the same. The VZW distribution of 0.75 is 107,842,664 bytes, 11,264 bytes larger than the "leaked" version (107,831,400 bytes).

The VZW distribution of 0.75 is even 512 bytes larger than the 12-04-08 Bell Mobility release of 0.76 (107,842,152 bytes).

I'm quite happy with the Official VZW version so I'm going to stick with it for a while - at least until some of the local gurus convince me otherwise .

The exact same way that you switched to .76. Just make sure you delete .76 off your computer before you install .75.

There are several threads on this already. Some find it faster. Some find it slower.

I'm still in the process of upgrading - but I noticed something rather strange with the upgrade.

Right now DM is in the process of "Connecting to device" - now with my Perl, the Perl will still with its "blank" screen until DM was done doing its thing and then it would restart and be ready to go.

Like I stated DM is still "Connecting" but my Storm has come back to life wanted to know what language I wanted to use, if it should delete the unused languages and then the little tutorial for the screen came up.

Right now it has the clock is up, but DM is still "Connecting" - did I jack this up?

Hey guys, this update worked wonders on the device. The switch from portrait to landscape was incredible. If you haven't upgraded, please do so!

Weird.... i just got my Storm today... 9530... and it came with .65 installed. It actually wasn't that bad...speed-wise.

I installed .75 from VZW this evening... and didn't really notice much of a improvement with lag. It isn't much faster at all. I was kind of hoping it'd be a big difference...

Actually... it's possible VZW's .75 is a tad slower than the .65. When I got my Storm with the .65 OS... Lag wasn't that bad at all... but now... I'm noticing lag more with .75.

ARG.

For those of us with Storms that are actually SLOWER with VZW's .75 release... should we revert back to whatever we were using before? or will simply wiping the BB and reinstalling .75 help at all?

I tried them all and finally went back to the leaked .75. For whatever reason it seems the fastest to me. My PC locked up and I bricked my phone twice in the process byt somehow it miraculously made it through after a few more tries.

Try a battery pull first.

Many have noticed when upgrading from .65 to .75 that they didn't seen an improvement until after they removed/replaced the battery to "reboot" the device.

(note: please be sure the device is not plugged in when you pull the battery)

Okay, dumb question on the battery pull....should this be done while the system is turned on (but not plugged in), or, when it's turned off?

The battery pull has to be done when the unit is turned on. Pulling the battery while it's off has no effect.
