Curve 8900

Here is my 1st post here at BBcool and its one of my favorite things, a new OS release! It looks like a bunch of carriers have released OS 5.0.0.461 for the BB Curve 8900. These are all official versions. I have been running 5.0.0.411 since it came out without any issues, but I look forward to seeing what the changes are in this version.

    Instructions for installing on ANY carrier's 8900:1. Download the above OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.2. Go to c:program filescommon filesresearch in motionapploader 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 process takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how much data you have to backup and restore during the process. Once it's done loading the new OS it will reboot (it may do this twice during the entire process.) You will see a white screen with an hourglass for up to 20 minutes at a time while the DM says “waiting for initialization.”If, for some reason, you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply connect to the PC again and run Loader.exe again and it should load the OS to the device.

    It seems that you gotta set up a password in order to use keyboard lock, otherwise it will be entering standby mode

    Yeah I do have a password (BES policy) but more testing shows that it seems to happen with built in hotkeys. It did it to me last night with holding 1 for voicemail.

    Once I got to double click on the “Loader.exe”, they were several of them, no particular one that just said Loader.exe. So how do I figure out which one is the correct one to click on?
