BlackBerry Handheld Software v6.0.0.2921 (All Languages)
This will install to any carrier's 9700 by following the instructions below:

Package Version: 6.0.0.2921
Consisting of:
  • Applications: 6.0.0.666
  • Software Platform: 6.6.0.241
  • File name: 9700jAllLang_PBr6.0.0_rel2921_PL6.6.0.241_A6.0.0.6 66_SmarTone_Vodafone.exe
  • File size: 179.46MB
Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

Download the OS file here: https://swdownloads.blackberry.com/D...4B931C35A169B0

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.

Upgraded a few days ago to .666 on the 9780 and no problems so far.
Everything seems fine.


Had a bit of a delay in registering with the BIS but that may have just been a squirrel glitch on the interwebs. A battery pull fro 30 seconds a few hours later seemed to resolve it.

It works fine. Just some delays with activation of email accounts.

I have the issue back with the break up of Bluetooth Headphones when listening to music :(

Other than that, all good so far...
