Re: OS 5 for 8520

Download the file above as linked by Tanzim.

 

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.

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.

Hello JSanders,

 

I thank you for the information given as it relates to upgrading my Curve 8520v4.6  upgrading to the v5.o.

 

I was able to load the updated the version to the pc but when load to the phone it still shows v4.6.

 

Is there any other method?
