    Software For BlackBerry Bold (TM) 9700 smartphone

    BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.541 (EastAsia)

    Package Version: 5.0.0.541
    Consisting of:

    * Applications: 5.0.0.344
    * Software Platform: 5.1.0.96
    * File name: 9700EastAsia_PBr5.0.0_rel541_PL5.1.0.96_A5.0.0.344 _Bell_Mobility_Inc.exe
    * File size: 142.56MB

    Download HERE


    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 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 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 AppLoader 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.

    Yes, basically different OS' works on all carriers as long as its the same phone model (Unless its GSM/CDMA specific, but as far as I know, all 3 Canadian carriers are carrying the 9700). It will also have full input support for Chinese (simplified & traditional), Japanese and Korean. CJK!!!!!!!

    Multilanguage does not support EastAsian languages (i.e. Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Korean). The EastAsian pack also includes additional input methods for the above mentioned languages.

    Can anyone confirm that Japanese (romaji) Input works on this one? (meaning you tested that you can turn it on and actually enter Japanese characters)

    I don't think so.

    w/o the east asia language pack, when you browse, say, a Chinese website the web content just can't be displayed because the browser can't decode the Chinese characters (neither do you, lol).

    I tried that one, and when receiving text messages, it would display the names from my contact book..... since hte text had a +14039999999 and my contact book had numbers stored as 4039999999

    So I went back to .321

    Are you on a Mac, running Windows under VMWare Fusion / Parallels? I had a similar problem trying to update my Curve 8900 using VMWare Fusion, and I had to switch to a dedicated Windows machine to complete the process.
