Re: How to upgrade BlackBerry OS

The most recent operating system released by any carrier for the 9000 Bold is OS 5.0.0.1036

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.

The application "BlackBerry 5.0.0 Core Applications" cannot be loaded, because
it requires the following applications that are not available:

net.rim.platform.ecmascript
