Default OS: 9650 6.0.0.1659/6.0.0.415 (Multilanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

Software For BlackBerry® Bold (TM) 9650 smartphoneThis will install to any carrier's 9650 by following the instructions below:
BlackBerry Handheld Software v6.0.0.1659 (Multilangauge)

Package Version: 6.0.0.1659
Consisting of:
  • Applications: 6.0.0.415
  • Software Platform: 4.4.0.314
  • File name: 9650_512AMEA_PBr6.0.0_rel1659_PL4.4.0.314_A6.0.0.4 15_Sprint_L.P.exe
  • File size: 157.26MB
Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

Sprint has released an additional Japanese language pack also at this link.
Download the OS file here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...BB765225CE8C0E

Instructions for installing either version on ANY carrier's 9650:
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.

Downloading now. I've been quite happy with .333, but I've had two random resets happen since installing it a while ago.

ETA: still doesn't have all the old ringtones. Reinstalled the ones from my 9630 via BBSAK.

You had random resets with the .333?? Or with the new .415?? Just wondering cause the .333 has been completely stable for me in my Verizon 9650.

The resets were on .333, although I now believe it may have been the "Berry Annoying" silent-camera app rather than the OS being the culprit. Looking back, I realized that both resets happened just after I used the camera to snap a pic. Maybe that's why they (JaredCo) say it won't work with CDMA phones. 99% of the time it works fine, but every now and then...snap a pic, and RESET!

I had the ramdom re-boots on .222, I posted looking for others in another thread... I thought I had traced it back to SMS in some way, because that was the only time it would happen. This new .415 seems decent so far..

Anyone know if VZ PTT will work on .415? it would not work on .333 and I had to down grade to .280 which i have found is very stable.

I am running this and no PTT.

Is anyone a user of the Audible.com app for audio books and if you are, do you have it working on a 9650 with OS 6???

I randomly had this behavior in .333 as well. Only taken 2 pics on this build. OK so far. AND I did not have the silence app installed.

Hmmm...good to know. My wife is running that silent app on her Tour without issue. (I know, different OS & phone, but still....) Gonna randomly take lots of photos tomorrow and see what happens.

Random reboots still happening in this latest build. Also, now I can't delete certain SMS text messages... I'll get the green icon like I'm saving a draft. Nothing works but a battery pull... Annoying.

I like the upgrade for the most part, but wow, I have to say I don't like the look of the new calendar.

I loaded 6.0.0.415 a week ago.

Like the new UI, except can't navigate between days on the calendar.

Battery life is less than 24 hours!

Response time seems slow compared to 5.0, but I guess that's cause this is one of the slowest processors it's released on.

Not sure if I'm going to stay here or roll back.

I like almost everything about OS6 UI-related. I do think its slick and new... although, this latest build def has it's issues. I cannot believe this was "officially" released by any carrier or RIM, for that matter. Here are my issues so far, others chime in please:

-no "scrolling" between days on calender
-random reboots (no idea why)
-inability to delete from message list (not just SMS messages now, but emails as well)
-battery life (although mine has always sucked, I always keep a spare battery and charger near-by) not sure OS6 related.

downloaded it OTA but am now quickly rolling back because I simply can't exist without a Today Plus theme, sad to say but I rely so heavily on being able to take one glance at my phone during a meeting and immediately see the newest messages and upcoming meetings. I pray that someone creates a Today Plus OS 6 theme soon but until them I am staying away!

Agreed. I'll stick with this version, but I really don't like the theme. I'll be looking forward to some new themes.

I am not experiencing the problems previously mentioned. My biggest complaint--and maybe its a user issue-- is that i cannot find the option that allows me to dial from the home screen as in previous versions. its a pain to have to go to the telephone to dial

You mean just press the numbers followed by the phone button? Mine can... When you press the numbers, the search screen will come out. But there is a small row that displays the number pressed and allow you to dial straight, from home screen.

Installed this last night. So far it appears to be a lot quicker going in between menus. It's really "snappy". It used to take a few seconds to load an email, but it jumps right into it now.

Noticed on Verizon, if you have the MyVerizon installed you also get an 'app' that shows your current data usage.

Can't wait til themes start being made for this OS.

Anyone have ups and downs for this OS and the 6.0.0.333 OS (beta build)?

Installed last Monday.

The most important issues are:

- Calendar: cannot scroll to next day
- Calendar: cannot see the entire day, only a portion
- All my past entries in the Calendar were transferred to the Facebook Calendar and disappeared in my Outlook files
