OS: 9530 4.7.0.230/4.7.0.167 (Multilanguage)
 
BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.7.0.230 (Multilanguage)
This is from Iusacell, and will work on any 9530 model by following the directions below.

Package Version: 4.7.0.230
Consisting of:
  • Applications: 4.7.0.167
  • Software Platform: 4.0.0.205
  • File name: 9530jAMEA_PBr4.7.0_rel230_PL4.0.0.205_A4.7.0.167_I usacell.exe
  • File size: 110.22MB
Download the OS file here:
https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...64F594BF6384D0

Alternative OS download sites:
Multilanguage version: 9530jAMEA_PBr4.7.0_rel230_PL4.0.0.205_A4.7.0.167_I usacell

Instructions for installing either version on ANY carrier's 9530:

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.

For the earlier releases of this OS, see:

Was looking for .151 when I found this fresh beauty just posted.

What the hell. Here goes ;)

XelhaBB 10-16-2009 06:19 PM

Well I downloaded the OS. Ran the exe file. Tried using apploader.exe and all it does is ask me if I want to delete programs. No mention of OS update.

Turned on DM and tried that way and the DM does not see .167. Only sees .148 and a couple of previous builds.

Wassap?

JSanders 10-16-2009 10:42 PM

xelhaBB, i dunno, I have not upgraded using THIS file, but another, but it should work.

.167 is a good upgrade. I think there are the constant memory loss issues remaining.

I was able to upgrade without issues.

I deleted vendor.xml and then ran loader.exe. It showed it was going to update core components.

So far I have not seen any differences between this release and .151

is this file good for an english unlocked att 9530?

craigw9292 10-18-2009 04:18 PM

well its working for me but installation was a disaster .. had to do it 4 times - first time left the phone with no OS, second time OS load also aborted. I finally got it on but lost all my downloaded apps - restore got me my settings as usual and I'm now download app world.

Noticed a couple visual changes immediately - besides that same as usual.

XelhaBB 10-19-2009 10:30 AM

I have always upgraded using the DM. After I download the new OS, I run the exe file and normally the DM sees the new build. I have ran the exe file three times. No dice.

The apploader doesnt really make it sense to me. I run it and all it does is enable me to delete applications. It never makes any mention of the OS.

Anyone have any ideas?

Stormtrooper TK9530 10-19-2009 10:38 AM

I installed the upgrade with no issues either. I have noticed a couple changes though. When I go to options/advanced options, the Wireless update was gone, and now after a couple days it just magically re-appeared..Weird. Also, on my email button its showing I have 3 read emails, but they have been deleted. Not a big deal. Its working fine for me though not much different than .1518-)

When you run the apploader in the list of applications the first one should be the core components and it should show the action as Update.

This should update the OS on the phone.

Yes, that is why it says "any 9530"...

And English is included in ALL RIM OS releases.

I feel like I've been running .151 forever and have been itching to upgrade. I've held off on upgrading to 5.0 since people have said those versions are buggy and a few apps I use won't work, so what's new going from .151 to .167, if anything?

JSanders 10-19-2009 11:30 AM

Not a whole lot... you might see some difference in the screen transitions when closing the calendar or other applications (I don't remember if that was enabled in .151 or not).

I've been good with .167 for about a month now.

craigw9292 10-19-2009 11:45 AM

erm ... I no longer have a 0 (Zero) on my keypad in messenger 5 .... with this .167 release.

craigw9292 10-19-2009 11:58 AM

just to be clear - it is with the keyboard in landscape mode, when in portrait full keyboard I have the zero. Can anyone confirm if it is ok in messager 5 and .151?

XelhaBB 10-19-2009 12:42 PM

Whenever I run the apploader, all it asks me is what applications I wish to delete.

Can anyone list a bried series of steps to get the apploader to run correctly?

Also, how does the apploader know which exe file to choose?

craigw9292 10-19-2009 03:55 PM

What is your operating system? I've seen this a lot on Windows 7 and even Vista, you have multiple locations with the phone's system files (maybe older installs) and it gets confused and generally uses the older one. I always upgrade via a XP Virtual Machine to avoid problems.

craigw9292 10-19-2009 07:00 PM

Just to warn others - I have a couple of these storms :) (why??)

.151 with Messenger 5.x is ok.
.167 with Messenger 5.x I am missing the Zero number on portrait keyboard.

Odd - maybe it is something else, the only thing I am aware of changing is from .151 to .167

XelhaBB 10-20-2009 07:49 AM

I kept a laptop with XP and so far all upgrades with the betas have gone well.

Now I am encountering issues since .148.

Has anyone heard of being able to upgrade the OS with the new version of DM for MAC?

I am just about completely over PC's and all their PITA flaws. Why can't the whole world just go MAC and be happy!!!

I have the zero... directly under the 8.

What is beneath your 8?
