Re: Where do i download the new firmware

Well, for all the latest firmware, check this site:

http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/downloads/download_sites.jsp

 

Choose your service provider, then choose Blackberry Bold 9000 from the dropdown menu, and you will find a link to download the latest "official firmware" for YOUR specific provider.

 

Although it isn't supported, some specific providers have more updated software. For example, Rogers is still running version 4.6.0.125, where providers like Hong Kong CSL Limited, or Orange France are using 4.6.0.147. It is possible to load firmware from a different provider, but it is not supported. If you still wish to update with a different service provider's firmware, this link will explain how to do it:

If you have anymore questions, just ask. Cheers!

I believe you can use either one of the firmware, it should be compatible with unbranded firmwares.

Re: Where do i download the new firmware

foneuslike, i'm not 100% sure, but If you follow the instructions from the website I linked above, it should be fine for an unlocked bold.

 

Just make sure you delete the vendor.xml file. But I'm just guessing, as I am NOT 100% positive.
