Default OS: 9630 5.0.0.1061/5.0.0.624 (All Languages)

Please Login to Remove!

BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.1061 (All Languages)

Package Version: 5.0.0.1061
Consisting of:

* Applications: 5.0.0.624
* Software Platform: 4.2.0.285
* File name: 9630jAllLang_PBr5.0.0_rel1061_PL4.2.0.285_A5.0.0.6 24_Sprint_L.P.exe
* File size: 149.15MB

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...BB765225CE8C0E


Instructions for installing either version on ANY carrier's 9630:
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." Vista/Win7 users: In the apploader folder, simply click on "Compatibility files" to see the actual Vendor.xml file. Once you've got that - simply delete the vendor.xml file there (even if you've deleted or think you've deleted it in the folder previously) and voila, it will allow you to update to the newly installed OS!
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.

Is this the one Sprint just messaged me about? No details in the message, just that "there is a new software update available". I'm not touchin' nothin' until somebody else vets it. Hell, I'm still on .419!

I just got a message from RIM about it. I'm downloading it now. I love living on the bleeding edge! (or not... I don't think I want to downgrade to an official release)

Same here. I'm running .643 and unless there is something amazing about it, I'll hold out!

Loaded it last night, no problems. Faster browser - no click issue, 10MB+ more free memory, more stable signal....not fluctuating as it did before. Time will tell how the battery likes it.

I'm confused...I'm using beta 5.0.0.662, with platform 4.2.0.303.

So is 5.0.0.1061 a newer version (higher number, obviously), with an older platform? What difference does the Platform edition make anyway?

Not sure if I should switch to this one or not.

Loaded it today and so far no issues, it even did an automatic BES activation which was great. I will see how it goes the next couple of days and report my findings back.

.662 is a higher version than this version, .624

Updated through Desktop no problems. One thing I noticed immediately is that I am able to make new appts when I was not able to with recent official Sprint version (which I posted couple times and got no responses).

I haven't noticed any major changes except faster browser and 10MB of memory, anyone else notice more?
