Re: OS 6 on 9300 Bugs

A lot of folks, including me, are having many issues with OS 6, but I have yet to see any viable responses from RIM or any solutions.

Re: OS 6 on 9300 Bugs - SMS Storage Problem - SUPER FRUSTRATED CUSTOMER!!!

I got a 9300 in August and instantl upgraded to OS 6.0.0.2342. Strangely my text messages would get deleted in 30 days. I tried to find a solution in the manual, online and on the helpline but all of them said to change the days in the options menu which was NOT there. Then Feroz from helpline asked me to change the software to OS 6.0.0.2475. I did that and still the problem persists. I am very frustrated and to my utter despair, when I called to escalate this matter, Prem in the helpline disconnected the call 3 times.

 

This just says how professional this organisation is and how much they care for customer issues.

 

If there is anyone who has come across this and has a solution, please help. I am in a situation where I cannot buy a new phone else I would have thrown away this piece of trash. Alternatively if you have email address of someone who I can approach to ask for help who treats us like customers, please share.

 

Thanks in advance

Hello,

 

What you describe is the automatic process...the results of which are controlled by your carrier. Via any of the automatic processes, you can only install OS levels that your carrier has approved. But, you can get around that.

The simplest way is to, on a PC (you cannot do this on MAC):

1) Make sure you have a current and complete backup of your BB...you can find complete instructions via the link in my auto-sig below.

2) Uninstall, from your PC, any BB OS packages

3) Make sure you have the BB Desktop Software already installed

4) Download and install, to your PC, the BB OS package you desire:

  • http://us.blackberry.com/support/downloads/download_sites.jsp
  • It is sorted first by carrier -- so if all you want are the OS levels your carrier supports, your search will be quick. However, some carriers are much slower than others to release updates. To truly seek out the most up-to-date OS package for your BB, you must dig through and find all carriers that support your specific model BB, and then compare the OS levels that they support.

5) Delete, on your PC, all copies of VENDOR.XML...there will be at least one, and perhaps 2, and they will be located in or similarly to (it changes based on your Windows version) these folders:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader
  • C:\Users\(your Windows UserName)\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML

6a) For changing your installed BB OS level (upgrade or downgrade), you can launch the Desktop Software and connect your BB...the software should offer you the OS package you installed to your PC.

6b) Or, for reloading your currently installed BB OS level as well as for changing it, bypass the Desktop Software and use LOADER.EXE directly, by proceeding to step 2 in this process:

If, during the processes of 6a or 6b, your BB presents a "507" error, simply unplug the USB cord from the BB and re-insert it...don't do anything else...this should allow the install to continue.

 



If you are on MAC, you are limited to only your carriers sanctioned OS packages...but can still use any levels that they currently sanction. See this procedure:

  • KB19915How to perform a clean reload of BlackBerry smartphone application software using BlackBerry Desktop Software

Good luck and let us know!

Re: OS 6 on 9300 Bugs

Without a PC, you are restricted to the on-device OTA update. The on-device OTA update is controlled by your carrier as to available OS packages for your device. So, based on what you have said coupled with that, the answer is no.
