Blackberry Device Software v5.0 for Bold 9000

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone knows whether AT&T will release 5.0 for the Bold 9000 anytime soon, if ever. Thanks for any information you have!

Don't even bother to ask - probably never!  Remember - do a full backup before proceeding, just in case.  A full backup / restore should happen during the OS Installation, but better to be safe than sorry!

 

Find a legit version of OS 5 for your device - just released, version 5.0.0.822 from Hutchison here:

https://www.blackberry.com/SoftwareDownload/index.jsp?client=UhncPmcPJ

Download and install the software, then rename or delete the file:

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\Vendor.xml"

Now, just run:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\Loader.exe

and you'll be able to install OS 5.

I'm running OS 5.0.0.681 now, and will probably update later today!

Hi Jerry,

 

Thanks for the heads-up!  I did download that version of OS 5, but having a hard time updating my actual BB.  Do you do it through Desktop Manager?  I did delete the Vendor file.  Thanks for your help!
