Smile Latest OS: 9700 6.0.0.1965/6.0.0.461 (All Languages)

Please Login to Remove!

BlackBerry Handheld Software v6.0.0.1965 (All Languages)
For any carrier's 9700 model, follow the instructions below.

Package Version: 6.0.0.1965
Consisting of:

Applications: 6.0.0.461
Software Platform: 6.6.0.137
File name: 9300AllLang_PBr6.0.0_rel1965_PL6.6.0.137_A6.0.0.46 1_Telus_Mobility.exe
File size: 170.64MB

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...E607FE7CC0E1A0

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...languages.html

How come I cannot download this "official" OS, over the air? Doesn't BB make the latest "official" OS available for OTA downloading?

Thanks

You can only do OTA updates when your carrier pushes it out.

There is no visual voicemail included with this OS for some reason. If you read about it over in the Beta You Than Me forum you'll see it was a problem there too You'll have to remove the modules and alx file from a previous build.

if you experience this again take your old backup fiel from when you had the device with 5.0 software do a selective restore and only restore your services books to the device. Hope this helps!

Cheers,

So far so good. Battery life was suffering pretty bad with .424 compared to the release prior. Lets see if this one improves.

Just something trivial, but has anyone else noticed that with OS6, the camera no longer has the option of taking B&W/ Sepia photos?

I am currently running 5.0.979.

I would be grateful for a brief list of the pros/cons of this build over my current OS. Your input is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

There are literally thousands of posts all over this forum about OS6 and it's new features.

If you click the "previous OS" links in the first post you can go back and review discussions about all the previous builds. Earlier threads will likely discuss more about features and later threads will discuss more about bugs and issues.

Lots can be found in the search bar, as well.

I did the upgrade on friday. Here are some of my observations on this

- OS is stable but eats up more memory. With OS5 I have 55mb memory but in OS 6 my memory starts at 42mb but degrades fast and I've had to do a battery pull and delete applications three times already.

- A little slow scrolling down for more icons using the trackpad

- Very responsive moving side to side into the different pages

- Different menus take a while to get used to. OS 5 and before it was easy to get to options etc. This is like a new language and take a bit to get used to

- I like the universal search and the fact you can get to battery, WI FI, Bluetooth quickly.

- Webkit browser much faster than I expected which was a pleasant suprise

- Facebook works well with OS6 rather than OS5

Overall decent but I would say for the 9700 - not enough memory and speed to run this. Perhaps the 9780 is doing better i'm not sure.

I would say test it out first before you think its for you.

Thank you for the release. Are Asian languages and more specifically Japanese included in this version?

Thank you.
