4.7.0.78 ---> 4.7.0.83 "or" 4.7.0.85
 
This is the OS that is currently on my Storm. Have had it for a littler over a week. But reading thru these forums, I can see that there is a .83 and .85 version.

I am with Vodafone, and have the 9500 model.

Would anyone suggest upgrading to .83 or even .85?

Seen that these have been leaked over in Crackberry? OS 4.7.0.85 Leaked for the BlackBerry Storm 9530! | CrackBerry.com

Would this upgrade be compatiable for the 9500 model, even tho it is mentioned for the 9530 model?

All the help & advise would be greatfully received!

Haven't done it my self. However I would advise against linking to beta OS in this particular forum. It's founed upon. :)

No, not THAT OS.

9500 = 9500
9530 = 9530

You can't mix the OS between models.

That said, the same version .83 and .85 are out in Beta for the 9500. Google might find them.

To complete what was already said...

I strongly suggest you avoid 4.7.0.83. There are way too many glitches (like unlocking the screen, memory card issues, lag, etc...) that have been addressed with .85

Best of luck!

I have gone from .75 --> .83 --> .85... I must say, avoid .83. I am happy on .85.

datboi305 12-29-2008 07:28 PM

I just upgrade from .76 -> .85 but have a few issues, not sure if anyone facing the same:
1. try to restore using DM but no success
2. when in phone book, I cannot process for a name search (ie. type 'k' but none of the K name show up
3. when typing English, all spaces are doubled

I didnt have a problem w/ .83 but Im gonna install .85 anyway lol.

xtreme__boi 12-30-2008 10:10 AM

Can't seem to find .85 for the Storm 9500

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

JSanders 12-30-2008 10:12 AM

Starts with a G, two O's, and GLE on the end... is about the best we can do.

GOOGLE!

Yes I know that.

I have searched. But can only find the OS for the Storm 9530... and not the Storm 9500, the model I currently own!

Hence why I am asking for a little help, and not sarcasm!

JSanders 12-30-2008 10:46 AM

Hey, that was direction... not sarcasm. It is about the ONLY place you will find it.

I just googled it and found it on the FIRST page of links.

Directions: "9500 4.7.0.85". Look at each google link until you find the one that has the 9500 version.

Is that clear enough? Really, it is there. .85 and .83 as well.

Went from .83 to .85 yesterday.
.85 seems more responsive, specially the camera and the transition from landscape to portrait and vice versa.

Other than that, I did not experience any issues with .83, so it's hard to tell...

This thread is for the 9500...

milo145 12-30-2008 11:19 AM

.85 installed and looks to be stable and more responsive.
Maps and GPS look to be more responsive.

Still looking thru Google, and only finding the .83 for 9500

The only links im finding for the .85 is for the 9530

Getting frustrated, lol! :x

franknbeans 12-30-2008 01:15 PM

i'm still running on 83.... it's a little buggy for me.

jnorthway 12-30-2008 11:00 PM

.85 is definitely better than previous versions, but still needs work.

I installed .85 after a full wipe with Crackmem. My biggest issue is that the phone steadily loses memory over a day or two until it becomes very flaky and i do a battery pull. After a battery pull I'm at about 49MB. When it gets below 25MB i pull the battery and reset.

I am VERY anal about closing any program I use. I use the phone app mostly, with a little browsing, a bit of SMS texting & email (and a bit of Brick Breaker).

The only 3rd party app I have on my BB is Google maps 2.3.2 (which I use very little).

My 2 cents.
Jon

Lord Chrispin 12-31-2008 02:24 AM

Man .85 Blows lol......Im re-installing .83 as I type.

zkyevolved 12-31-2008 03:01 AM

I don't think .85 for 9500 is on the internet... :(
