OS: 9780 6.0.0.1965/6.0.0.461 (English + Asian languages)
 
Software For BlackBerry® Bold 9780 smartphone
BlackBerry Handheld Software v6.0.0.1965 (Multilangauge)
This will install to any carrier's 9780 by following the directions below:

Package Version: 6.0.0.1965, Consisting of:
  • Applications: 6.0.0.461
  • Software Platform: 6.5.0.147
  • File name: 9780jAsia_PBr6.0.0_rel1965_PL6.5.0.147_A6.0.0.461_ Bharti_Airtel_Limited.exe
  • File size: 164.21MB
Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.
Download the OS file here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...B999EC0D90D1FB

Instructions for installing on the 9780:
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 may take up to 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.

You'd probably need to wait until a multi-language version becomes available.

The link works well and downloads fine. Since you didn't state any error you're having, it is difficult to offer any solutions other than to just try again.

Seems to be working fine for me so far. DL'd on the 13th and have had no major issues. Battery life seems to be pretty good compared to the last OS release, so no complaints from me.

I just 'upgraded' from .448 and I lost my entire AutoText or Word Substitution or whatever you call it. I see several threads where people when from 5.x to 6 and they had the same problem, but to go from 6.x to 6.y and having the same problem is rediculous!!! I've lost all my custom words, probably close to 200 :(

Very unhappy with this release (n)

I would think if you had a backup that you have done yourself you may get them back that way

I have just got my Bold 9780 last week by becoming Windmobile, Canada customer. I would like to install Bengali Font on my Bold 9780 to read Bengali newspapers as well as mails written in Bengali. Can someone help me on this?

I just updated to this OS b/c of a Bluetooth issue with a prior version. All appears well so far, with exception of Visual Voicemail. I saw in the 9700 thread for this sw version that for some reason it was left out, and that there were instructions in the Beta thread on how to add it back it. I searched and couldn't find any info. Does anyone have an hints? Thanks!

Having used this for a few days now, I've found the browser to be quite laggy and slow. Something really not quite right. IMHO I say skip this version

Laggy and slow browser - gee...it's not like any BB actually has a browser that is worth a damn. Every release, every BB, has a garbage browser, slow, impossible to read or navigate...

While you can't beat a BB for e-mail and several other features, you can't say that about their browsers...RIM really does suck when it comes to browsing. Nothing compares to an iPHONE for browsing...then you have Android and then you have Windows Mobile - then at the very bottom of the pile, you have RIM.

The browser in this release is exactly the same as the previous and even later releases...

What really sucks, is the inability to backup and restore the custom words and word substitution collections. It's been this way for months now, with not even a clue on the RIM site as to when that'll be fixed.

More and more, I'm becoming less and less enchanted with any of RIM's product offers these days.

Steve, you're probably right, but my comparison's are relative to previous BlackBerry OS releases. With some of the glitches I'm seeing, and the lack of app compatibility with OS6, I'm really longing for my old 9700 more and more. The only true upgrade with the 9780 is the camera. RIM wake up!!!

...and you'd be dead wrong about that - it's a known issue that there's no backup for that, and no working restore either. Before recommending to others, you really should verify - instead of just posting solutions that are know NOT to work. There's a plethora of info about this, including KB's on the RIM site, which state that there's no known workaround at this time.

Is there a way of finding out what fixes were made ? Blackberry site ? Other ones ?

I just found a bug in this (otherwise excellent) release: in the message inbox, if I press "C",instead of composing a new message, as it did in the previous release, it opens up the Search box. Is it a wanted change ?

No. RIM does not release that information.
