Default OS: 9520 5.0.0.545/5.0.0.341 (Multilanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.545 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 5.0.0.545
Consisting of:

* Applications: 5.0.0.341
* Software Platform: 4.2.0.146
* File name: 9520M_PBr5.0.0_rel545_PL4.2.0.146_A5.0.0.341_TIM_I taly.exe
* File size: 111.85MB

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

* Download Software: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...190CAAD5802983

Instructions for installing either version on ANY carrier's 9520:

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.

I've been using this OS a couple days, it's a great upgrade.
The pop-up keyboard characters are present in this release and my landscape keyboard dimming seems to be cleared up...

All I get when trying to do this is:

Use a different USB port on the REAR of your PC, no hubs or front PC ports.

Hi all,

don't know if this is happening to you all 9520 users on 9520M_PBr5.0.0_rel545_PL4.2.0.146_A5.0.0.341. i can see constant wireless activity arrows shown even after a battery pull. i wonder what's causing that as its affecting the speed while typing, opening applications, browsing..

does any one have similar issues after upgrading to this version?

is it adviseable to downgrade to previous version?

any suggestion is highly appreciated.
