Blackberry 8520 Update ?

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone,

 

I need some help with my BB 8520.

At this moment I have v4.6.1.314 and when I try to update it to v5 it says that there are no updates available?

My mobile carrier is 'Proximus'.

 

I hope someone can help me update my BB.

 

Looking forward to your replies.

 

Anthony

Re: Blackberry 8520 Update ?

5.0.0.1036 is the latest officially released operating system for the 8520.

 

Device operating system releases are "released" by specific carriers once they have certified and trained their support techs, but still, you are able to load to any carrier's same model by following the instructions below.

See the link below, for the download and simple installation instructions.

Do a backup of your device first, using Desktop Manager > Backup. Close Desktop Manager upon completion.

1. Download the 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."
3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file.
