Latest OS: 9700 6.0.0.3049/6.0.0.706 (Asian and English)
 
BlackBerry Handheld Software
This will install to any carrier's 9700 by following the instructions below:

Software Name: BlackBerry Handheld Software v6.0.0.3049 (Asia)
File Name: 9700jAsia_PBr6.0.0_rel3049_PL6.6.0.246_A6.0.0.706_ Vodafone_New_Zealand.exe
Download Size: 152 MB
Language: English
Published Date: 11/22/2011

Download the OS file here: https://swdownloads.blackberry.com/D...E41265734438D7

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.

I don't see this 9700 device having a OS6 listed at the Partner Communication link at all... similar to the 9780

If you have a valid link, please post it here. Thanks.

I updated to this build a few days ago. Battery life is better (slightly) and EVERYTHING seems speedier.

I don't remember the exact build i was on before, but it was a .2XX so this is a big update for me.

SO far, it's worth the upgrade

As always, i slim my installs down to the bare minimum, so that'll have a positive impact on performance that anybody who does a stock install will not see.

I've loaded this on to my 9700 2 days ago, and it works just fine. No issues, runs fine.

Loaded it right before Christmas 2011 as well and have been running it ever since. I used BB Boss to shrink it. I'm going to test Shrink-A-OS (part of BBHTool) and BB Boss to see which one shrinks the OS the most.

Back to the device software, its been running well. Battery now lasts for two and a bit days. This is more than .668's one day.

In Options -> Device -> Application Management -> Memory, BB is reporting:
* 209.4MB used, 46.5 MB free (178.2MB is for BB OS 6)

In Options -> Device -> Application Management -> Application Storage, BB is reporting:
* 177.0MB Used(140.3MB Apps, 36.7MB Other), 79.0MB Free

At home screen, if you hold down Alt key and type "NMLL" (all lowercase and without the "s) my signal in a known bad reception spot in my house - usually 1 to 2 bars (-110dBm or more) is now 4 to 5 bars (-89 to -70 dBm).

Is there a Mac version of this download? Or a pointer to one? Thanks. Digging out a PC just to be able to update is a PITA...
