Thumbs up Latest OS: 9700 5.0.1446/5.0.0.862 - PL 5.1.0.175 Official rel from Vodafone Germany

Please Login to Remove!

Software For BlackBerry® Bold (TM) 9700 smartphone
BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.1446
Package Version: 5.0.0.1446
Consisting of:
Applications: 5.0.0.862
Software Platform: 5.1.0.175
File name: 9700M_PBr5.0.0_rel1446_PL5.1.0.175_A5.0.0.862
File size: 134 MB
Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

Download the OS here: BlackBerry Bold 9700
(Scroll down and click on the red button - Akzeptieren = Accept)

Instructions for installing on ANY carrier's 9700:

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 black "BlackBerry" screen with a status bar 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.

For the previous OS, see this link: http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ilanguage.html

Although it's been mentioned in various beta OS forums, this version it is not beta but a final - official release. It also enables UMA on Rogers-branded 9700's running on the Rogers Wireless Network. YMMV for other branded BB's on other networks.
