    Update: (Sept 05, 2009) AT&T has withdrawn this release, info here. There is no reason for existing users to downgrade.

    An independently hosted copy of 4.6.0.297 is linked in this post or users may wish to refer to the previous latest release with carrier support. Application version 4.6.0.292

    Download Here: <withdrawn by AT&T>

    For install instruction to load any carrier 9000 OS on your BB:

    1. Download desired OS to your PC
    2. Install/run OS to PC
    3. Delete vendor.xml file. It's located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader (AT&T users may skip this step)
    4. Connect BB to Desktop Manager and it should prompt the upgrade. If not click app loader and that should initialize it.
    5. Do not unplug BB during the process. It will take around 30-60 minutes to complete upgrade.

    Note for AT&T customers only: Visual Voicemail info is here

    still haven't figured out how to use VVM. Left myself a voice message and nothing showed up in the vvm app. just the usual voicemail icon.

    But I did notice that when I deleted an application I no longer need, it no longer says that i have to reboot for it to be removed.

    Haha, good point to make. Us lovers of upgrading/changing the OS so much are used to that step. It's nice to not have to worry about it, for once.

    It is always wise to backup your phone and 3rd party apps before doing any updating....there are threads on here on how to do that if you do not know how.

    Can anyone confirm whether this fixes the .282 media card loading issue? i.e. every time you use mass storage mode when plugged into a computer it re-scans the entire Micro SD card when you disconnect? Thanks
