App World Icon Disappeared? Upgrade Available with Fix

Comments

app world

After last week’s App World update, some users running older OS versions, specifically OS 4.6 and 4.7, had their BlackBerry App World icon disappear. According to Inside BlackBerry, RIM has released a fix for this and the new version, BlackBerry App World v2.1.2.19, is available for download at the link below.

Note: Users who weren’t affected by the missing icon issue may also see an upgrade notification for v2.1.2.19. The only change in this version is the missing icon fix.

BlackBerry OS leaks: Storm OS 4.7.0.164, Bold and 8900 OS 5.0.0.130

This week is off to a great start with some OS leaks for your BlackBerry. The move coveted of the 2 leaks is for Bold and Curve 8900 users: OS 5.0.0.13. Don’t get too excited though, like all the OS 5.0 leaks we’ve seen, the build does not come with the latest BlackBerry Messenger, and it will make App World buggy.

BlackBerry Storm 9500 users will appreciate the OS 4.7.0.164 update as it helps make the Storm experience a little smoother. While the Storm started off on a bad foot, RIM has done a great job of releasing OS updates to improve the experience. So if you’re frustrated with your device, at the very least you should be getting official updates the moment they’re available.

Personally, I don’t recommend downloading these OS leaks, but I’m posting for the die-hards who absolutely must try them out. Make sure to back everything up!

Download OS 4.7.0.164 for the BlackBerry Storm 9500.
Download OS 5.0.0.130 for the BlackBerry Bold
Download OS 5.0.0.130 for the BlackBerry Curve 8900

Verizon BlackBerry Storm

UPDATE: I’ve just successfully downloaded OS 4.7.0.75 using Verizon’s desktop download link. It now appears as though the OTA update will happen at 9:30 pm PST. Keep your fingers crossed or run to the nearest PC.

Forget the email notification Verizon sent out earlier this week, word is spreading fast around the Internets that Verizon is set for a massive official OS 4.7 update for the BlackBerry Storm. Here’s what we ‘know’ so far:

    Verizon should be rolling out an OTA update around 12 noon (EST or PST? Good question.) PLEASE NOTE that an OTA upgrade will only work for BIS users as this feature is not BES supported.

    Around 6pm, Verizon will have a desktop download of the 4.7 OS available at: http://www.vzam.net/blackberry/

Our boy Kevin has nabbed some “official sounding verbiage” regarding issues that the OS update will clean up on the Verizon BlackBerry Storm. You can find that info after the jump. The Storm Hunt continues!

Vodafone BlackBerry Storm 9500 OS 4.7.0.78 update now available!

While most Verizon Storm users are wondering why they would receive a text message telling them to upgrade to an OS that isn’t available yet, Vodafone Germany did the smart thing and just posted OS 4.7.0.78 on their website! You can click the link below to download and get updating – OS 4.7.0.78 should give Storm 9500 users quite a boost in stability.

I just received this email from no-reply@upgrade.blackberry.com:

Bundle An upgrade of BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.7 is available. This upgrade includes optimizations and enhancements approved by your wireless service provider.

Go to http://www.blackberry.com/go/softwareupgrades to upgrade.

We’re away from our office, and thus from a version of Internet Explorer needed to download the upgrade (where’s that Mac compliance, RIM?). PC users, quickly, hit the link above and let us know if BlackBerry Storm users have an updated OS 4.7!

The BlackBerry 4.7 JDE beta that saw release in early October has received an update. The beta update includes device simulators much closer to the final Vodafone and Verizon BlackBerry Storm builds, as well as the final accelerometer APIs. Developers should expect the final JDE release in the coming weeks.
