.190, yes. I am using it. It is probably the best OS version yet for the Bold.

Re: Bold OS 4.6.0.190

shame - all looks fantastic for me BUT - the age old media scanning and resultant missing songs (albums listed with no songs in them) bug is back. No probs with .67 Smiley Sad this is stupid. why do we have this issue with some OS and not others? what is RIM playing at?

Constant Media Card Scanning?

 

Read this on how fix the Media Card (courtesy of John Clark, another expert here in the Forum):

1. Removed the Media Card from the device and put in a card reader. This makes the rest of the process much quicker. However, you can do it with the card in the device.

2. Copy the entire contents of the card to your PC.

3. Put the card back in the device and go to Options >Media Card >Menu key >Format Card. This will wipe the card and reformat it. (if using a card reader remove the card and put it back in the reader.)

4. Now copy back JUST the media to the device. Do NOT copy back any "BBthumbs.dat" files or any system files. I went through the entire folder and deleted every .dat file before copying the contents of the music folder and pictures folders back to the device. The device will recreate these files. Also, I didn't copy the actual "music" folder but rather just copied the contents and pasted in the card's \Blackberry\music folder. Do this for each folder.

5. When finished put the card back in the device and try the Media App again. It should scan for music. If you have lots of music it can take 5-10 minutes. During scanning you can open the Music app and you should be able to see the songs moving around in the list as the device scans

If after transferring all your files back you still get a stuck scanning bar or device reboots then you have a conflicting file on the card. I've seen video files do this but it could be a music file too or (less likely) a picture file. Remove all the files you transferred and see if the reboots stop. Then add back each folder one at a time to see if you can narrow down to the folder that's causing it. Once you find the folder then you can narrow down to a particular file.

Re: Bold OS 4.6.0.190

OK guys I've been playing with 190 all day now. I did have to re-register?initiate my myriad of 3rd party apps. I'm holding steady at 40+MB app memory which is much better than the 25 or so I'd gotten used to seeing with 168.  My Bold scanned the media fine on an 8 gb SanDisk card. The one issue I'm having is that while all media files open when accessed directly from the resident media app, I can no longer get them to open by clicking on them from BeamReader even after a delete and reinstall of BeamReader (v0.99.7.2).  I haven't tried pulling the microSD card, but it's woth a try I guess...

Software version for my country following your address is:

Software For BlackBerry® Bold (TM) 9000 smartphone   BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.0.292 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.6.0.292
Consisting of:
  • Applications: 4.6.0.162
  • Software Platform: 4.0.0.155
  • File name: 9000M_PBr4.6.0_rel292_PL4.0.0.155_A4.6.0.162_Orange.exe
  • File size: 93.43MB

 

 

 

I use now 4.6.0.168 (platform 4.0.0.160).

That means .... What ????

Should I install that 4.6.0.292 or should I keep the actual one ?

Re: Bold OS 4.6.0.190

.162 is less than .190

 

Of course, it is your decision to upgrade or not.
