Default Latest OS: 9630 4.7.1.117/4.7.1.61 (Multilanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

Software For BlackBerry® Tour (TM) 9630 smartphone

From Appalachian Wireless; This will load to any carrier's 9630.

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.7.1.117 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.7.1.117
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.7.1.61
* Software Platform: 4.1.0.75
* File name: 9630AMEA_PBr4.7.1_rel117_PL4.1.0.75_A4.7.1.61_Appa lachian_Wireless.exe
* File size: 102.16MB

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

Download from Appalachian Wireless: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...C4C1BAAE25D6AF
Download from Bell Mobility: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...646D38BC2145CA
Download from Bluegrass Wireless: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...821DC88FEA0631

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 AppLoader 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.

Previous OS release: http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ilanguage.html

Ok, now I'm picturing a goat with an antenna strapped to it's back, running up and down the mountain, while people are chasing it trying to get a signal.

I think I need more sleep.

Probably bug fixes more than anything...only time you will see a major difference between OS builds is when you jump from say 4.7.1.xxx to 5.0.0.xxx

I am reposting this question from another forum:

Can anyone comment whether there were any bluetooth issues (voice quality) with .61? The reason I am asking is someone mentioned they were rolling back to .57 as bluetooth quality was worse with .61. Given that RIM released 4.7.1.57 (.110 build) for Sprint which I already loaded this AM makes me wonder whether to stay with .57 or try the .61. I don't want to go through the hassle of updating to an OS version not officially released for my carrier (Sprint) if there are issues with it such as BT problems.
