Default OS: 9900 7.0.0.1549/7.0.0.317 (Asia + English)

Please Login to Remove!

This can be loaded to any model 9900 by following the instructions below.

Software Name: BlackBerry Handheld Software v7.0.0.1549 (Asia)
File Name: 9900Asia_PBr7.0.0_rel1549_PL5.0.0.515_A7.0.0.317_V odafone_New_Zealand.exe
Download Size: 192.617 MB
Language: English
Published Date: 08/25/2011

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...3E665F950ED756

Instructions for installing on the 9900:
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.

I installed this with a backup/restore.

I've had the phone for only a week, and with this OS I've had the phone randomly reset on me 4 times today.

Could be compatibility with some apps I run? (LittleBrother)

.353 beta fixes several annoying issues that are still in .317.

.317 doesn't address any issues that were present in .261/.296

For Japanese input, see my reply in the .296 OS thread.

I have it working on a official 7.0.0.296 OS, no issues so far.

No, and it may be some time until that happens...
