It's been a while since I've done the upgrade OS thing. I used to have a Storm, and did it many times. It has been a while so can anyone give me a real quick tutorial on upgrading my Bold 9780? I have the original OS on it.

I'm from Brazil, and sorry if i seem too newbie, but i just got my 9780... the info i get on my phone is that my package is 6.0 564, and it is updated.
How do i upgrade? And, most important, what are the diferences?
Is it really worth it?
Thanks in advance for the help.

Almost 12 hours into it...56% battery left, including all the battery pulls, app updates/uninstalls, re-set up of ~15 existing apps, 1 hour of pandora listening, and just using it lightly all day long.
i have 0 issues to report, which is also to say, it works [in my experience] the exact same as .666. in other words, it works nicely.

BTW, have you tried other programs besides BBSAK? BB Boss v2.2 and BBMCP (BB Master Control Program) will everything BBSAK does, plus some other things too. I really like BB Boss' layout. MCP seemed a little confusing at first, but really does quite a lot.Saving the world, one OS at a time...

Download OS to PC.
Following download, run OS file to install OS on PC. Follow on screen directions.
On BB, go to BBM Options, scroll down to Backup section. Ensure Remote Backup is enabled and also conduct a Local Backup to media card.
Connect BB to PC. Open Desktop Manager and backup device. Close DM.
On PC, go to
(64): Computer/C:/Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader and delete Vendor file.
(32): Computer/C:/Program Files/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader and delete Vendor file.
You can run BB Boss or Shrink-A-OS/BBHybrids Tool to shrink the OS and remove unwanted files/apps.
Run AppLoader (Research in Motion/AppLoader) to initiate OS upgrade. Follow onscreen instructions. Be sure to have PC plugged in to power source. Do not interrupt install process. Wait until BB restarts completely.
Power up your BB and ensure that your apps are working. You may need to upgrade some apps (particularly BBM, as some OS versions contain old BBM versions).
Will report back tonight with battery life impressions. It's my first day at my new job. Excited!~Laura~

- its hexadecimal ...
Much appreciate the Leak .668 from @ rroyy And also the speedy Fileserve link.
My sincere Thanks to @ zocster for the Super Tip !!
The installation was 'as smooth as silk' with not a hitch.
Am using the .668 cods with the .666 sfi & with "everything loaded to my device", i.e. data + all apps, I still have over 250 MB storage.
Too early to say anything about Battery Life but with RIM still down here in India, voice calls are flawless (just like the earlier devil's version).
Will update more in a cpl of days.
Once again - zocster U made it rockz !!

LOL, "All Sources" Really? Little arrogant huh.
I would point out that a lot of people have signatures turned off so as to avoid the drivel and linkbait that appears in them. Also, If you do this for money, rather than the good of the community you should just start charging directly for downloads, that way if you have access to TabletOS2 and if someone wants it they can get it and you're being transparent about your motives.
It's nice that you post this stuff but threatening to pull it, or hold off on some leaks until people follow your rules is a little inane seeing as you'll stop making any money off of us.
Post the stuff or don't post it, thats up to you, but chastizing people isn't the answer.
