Latest OS: 9530 5.0.0.508/5.0.0.328 (Multilanguage)
 
BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.328 (Multilanguage)
This is from Verizon Wireless, and will work on any 9530 model by following the directions below.

Package Version: 5.1.0.0.508
Consisting of:

* Applications: 5.0.0.328
* Software Platform: 4.2.0.128
* File name: 9530AMEA_PBr5_1_.0.0_rel508_PL4.2.0.128_A5.0.0.328 .ex e
* File size: 132MB

Download the OS file here:
Verizon Wireless :: BlackBerry Storm 9530 :: OS 5.0.0.328

Direct file download here:
http://appstore.vzw.com.edgesuite.ne...A5.0.0.328.exe

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.

Upgrade worked like a charm, too many good things to mention.

I got it direct from VZW.

katin2 10-25-2009 10:08 PM

SMS is probably my favorite change. Upgrade was super easy

pcerio 10-25-2009 10:12 PM

Upgraded thru DM. Thrilled to have an official 5.0, held off on installing all the leaks.

Does anyones else have a problem with the icon that is in the first slot in Portrait mode?

It seems have no space between the icon and the text below it. It only happens when in half portrait mode and only the first icon. The icon and text are bunched up.

jdmevo8 10-25-2009 11:07 PM

I cannot find BB 5.0. It shows it installed on the App World but I cannot find it int he Instant Messenger. Does anyone else have this concern?

dimberman 10-25-2009 11:33 PM

I might be late to the party...but I am so glad they brought back the Today Mode for device settings. The theme control, sms, and overall feel is much better than any version previous.

It kinda reminds be of my RIM 920.

Here's my official "me too"! I got home after watching some football with some friends and was delighted to see the update ready! One thing I just noticed is the return of being able to choose how many times the ring tone will play! Very nice! And the keys and the entire device just seems snappier!!

The only problem I'm having is I've got a "new message" indicator with a "2" on it. I can't find where the unread message is! I just did a battery pull, thinking that would clear it...but alas...nothing! Anyone have any suggestions?

Never mind. When i read about the "today" settings, I changed my theme back to Zen and changed it to "today". Voila...I saw the unread mesages!

Pretty nice!! Thanks RIM and Verizon!!

Wirelessly posted (Lets Go Canes!)

I am NOT a Storm user but I am glad the phone was addressed in light of OS issues when it was released last year.

Yes, there has been a changelog posted:

Here are some taken from BlackBerryCool:
Verizon BlackBerry Storm 9530 official OS 5.0.0.328 plus changelog | BlackBerry Cool

Quote:

* Significant improvements in rotation detection and screen painting have been introduced in this software.
* Device displayed a white bar at the bottom of the screen after a rotation event.
* When setting a custom SMS tone for a single contact, this tone may playback unexpectedly for SMSxxx8217; received from other contacts.
* When swiping down the virtual keyboard in an MMS message the send and save draft icons did not appear as expected.
* When viewing an SMS there was no simple way to call the current user.
* Now the user can select the number from the Callback Number field or from the message body and call that number from the pop up menu.
* The delete prior function has the unwanted side-effect of triggering the compose email screen.
* The user cannot configure their profile settings to increase the number of alerts when being notified of an event such as incoming SMS or email.
* Previous software versions did not allow the user to increase the count of notifications (i.e. Beep 5 times when when I get an email and beep 3 times when I get an sms). In this software, this is now allowed with counts from 1-10.
* When trying to set a home screen background of a certain resolution (more specifically a resolution matching either the width or the height of the native resolution of the LCD) it may have appeared as a black screen.
* When trying to edit/create a folder, the virtual keyboard did not render to allow the user to enter the names of said folders.
* Intermittently, when streaming a video while doing a handover to 2G on a 3G network the video would stop playing.
* If you paused a video recording and then resumed, the icon state may not have reflected the current recording state.
* After recoding a video of a certain size (7M) the saved video may be corrupted and unplayable.
* During manual network selection, the radio buttons associated with the networks did not render as expected.
* When moving out of coverage your device display for no coverage may have been inconsistent.
* During voice calls, your device may have reset on a rare occasion.
* After viewing and accepting the End User Licensing Agreement of the App World application the application doesnxxx8217;t startup (fixes introduced in the latest version of App World).
* On some rare occasions, the device may reset on its own during a voice call or while idle.
* During an MTP side load of 16GB of music, the device would leak memory and stop the transfer at ~75%.
* During device full boot-up, the progress bar skips from 0% complete to ~66% complete instead of showing a gradual progression (Note: from 66% to 100% it does show a gradual progression).

I have this issue as well. Thought it was only cause it was my BES icon but its any icon in that position
