Useful - Latest OS for ALL Models
 
The following is a list of the latest version OS available from the 202 BlackBerry hosted Device Software Download Sites and 2 non RIM sites as of 2/18/2009 7:31:09 AM:
Notes:
  • The information above is gathered by a script that visits each provider site listed in the link at the top of the page that use BlackBerry to host their files, selects each model available, and gets the first version listed. If you are aware of discrepancies, PM me.
  • Only sites which have the latest available version are listed. Models may be listed at other sites, but do not have the latest version available.
  • Version numbers listed should match the version number in the About screen under Options - typically the third line down, and listed as vX.X.X.X (Platform x.x.x.x)
  • Both t-Mobile and Verizon host their own software download sites. The US t-Mobile and Verizon site info is gathered irregularly manually, and may be out of date. PM me if you are aware of newer versions available from those two providers.
  • Non US t-Mobile sites and other sites like O2 that do not use BlackBerry to host their firmware, as well as sites not listed on the Download Sites page (like TIM and Bouygues Telecom) are not included in the scan at all, and will not be included unless they hosts their files on BlackBerry's site AND are listed on the Download Sites page.

Nice, thanks.

Yes, nice. Good to have a centralized place. This should be a sticky.

jsntrenkler 12-22-2007 10:17 AM

Yes, this should be a sticky ... Thanks for the info!

That's the package version, Dawg.
When referring to OS versions, you typically refer to the applications version... which would be 4.2.1.110.
The list above is correct.

penguin3107 12-22-2007 10:46 AM

Jerry, I think you're missing the 8120 from the list.

John Clark 12-22-2007 11:39 AM

Well put together list. We have a list similar to this but it doesn't get kept up all the time by the OP and it doesn't have links like this. If you're willing to keep it updated I'll sticky it.

I know this stuff changes weekly as I tried to keep up with all the edited .alx files for a while. I couldn't keep up.

Here is a noob-ish question I have been wondering for a bit...

Is there an issue putting another company's 'update' into my BB? For example, I have a Verizon 8703e and the above post says that Telus has a newer OS than I have installed on my BB.

Thanks... good stuff.

JSanders 12-22-2007 01:01 PM

not at all... as long as you stay model-consistent, i.e. 8703 to 8703, 8100 to 8100. And always follow the instruction in the Sticky Threads about deleting the vendor.xml file.

kobersteen 12-22-2007 01:21 PM

Thanks. Is it worth grabbing onto every update? I'm running 4.2.1.106 and I'm curious whether I should wait for a more significant change than upgrading to a version 0.0.0.004 higher than what I have!

Iare Tosevite 12-22-2007 02:06 PM

Wow that is useful... :-)

You can also do your own scan over here.

BoostedSupra 12-22-2007 07:21 PM

i can't seem to find the version i was told i need.

i read in another thread that was a v4.2.1.179, but i don't see that..

John Clark 12-22-2007 11:00 PM

4.2.1.179 sounds like a package version. These are listed by app version (which is how most here refer to them.) Do you know which app version you are looking for?

Who carries it? If it's only carried by t-Mobile (it isn't listed on the US t-Mobile site), it won't appear on the list.

Although the process takes about 30 minutes, it's completely automated - even the content of the post (in BB code) is automated, so I just have to kick it off.

I won't promise to do it weekly, but I will try to update it at least once a month.

I'd scan the forums for the exact details for this procedure, but I'm pretty sure all you need to do is to make sure you do NOT have any other firmware for the model installed other than the version you want, and then rename or delete the file C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\Vendor.xml.

The Application loader should now recognize that it has newer firmware available for your device automatically, and if it doesn't come up automatically when you connect, it should offer the update if you start it manually.
