    Here's my short-version OS install guide if anyone needs a refresher...

    ELITE1's Quick OS6 UPGRADE GUIDE

    1. (Optional) Uninstall any previous OS from your PC.
    2. Download OS to PC. Use Internet Explorer to do so, not Firefox or Chrome. (For leaked versions, the browser is irrelevant though.)
      *If 100% certain you've previously used FF or Chrome on same PC to DL an OS successfully, feel free to use FF or Chrome again.
    3. Following successful DL, run OS file to install OS on PC.
    4. 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.
    5. Go through any 3rd party apps that have option to save settings to media card, and conduct Backup to media card from menu within each of these apps. (Examples: all Bellshare apps such as BerryBuzz & BerryWeather; QuickLaunch; Shao's apps such as Wallpaper Changer & SixTools; Show Me The Images; etc).
    6. Connect BB to PC. Open DM and backup device. Close DM.
    7. (Optional) Use desktop program like BBSAK or BBMCP to backup 3rd party apps.
    8. On PC, navigate to
      64-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader and delete file therein called Vendor.
      32-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader and delete file therein called Vendor.
    9. (Optional/Recommended) Run BB Boss v2.2 or Shrink-A-OS/BBH+ Tool.
    10. In same AppLoader file where you deleted Vendor, double-click on Loader to initiate OS upgrade. Follow onscreen instructions.
    11. After OS install is complete, perform several physical battery pulls over first 1-2 days for OS to "settle in." Perform first batt pull very soon after OS is installed.


    PS I've posted this before in other threads, but there always seems to be some people that appreciate a step-by-step each time.

    can someone post a mirror for this? for some reason I can't download the entire file from the BB servers, I get to about 60mb and than it stops downloading, I have tried downloading this a few times and the same thing keeps happening. Thanks!

    I'm having a hard time getting the OS onto my phone too. It just isn't working. I don't think this Tata indicom software will work for my Sprint phone. Even when I delete the vendor file it still does not work.

    RIM's Servers won't even let me download....I keep getting either a server Maintenance error or an interrupted download. I've been trying to download OS5 for 4 days now.

    First off, welcome to CrackBerry!

    So I'm assuming you have successfully downloaded the OS, unlike a few of the other members mentioning some issues even just downloading it in the first place, which is an unrelated issue.
    A ton of people are having the same problem as you with this last batch of OS's on the various OS6 devices.

    How to Fix OS not Appearing as Available

    If you're having this issue, there are 2 common reasons.

    The first is that there is an extra copy of Vendor on your PC (assuming you've already deleted Vendor). Search your PC for Vendor. It might appear in Temp Files or elsewhere.
    When deleting Vendor, always hold down SHIFT and press DELETE to permanently delete.

    If there doesn't appear to be Vendor anywhere, you need to delete the contents of the AppLoader folder. (That's the folder where you found Vendor.)

    1. Uninstall the OS: Control Panel>Programs and Features, highlight this BlackBerry Device Software, click Uninstall at top.
    2. Delete AppLoader folder contents: Highlight any item, CTRL+A to select all, SHIFT+DELETE to permanently delete.
    3. Restart PC.
    4. Re-install OS on PC: Go to your browser's downloads section, double-click OS to start InstallShield Wizard.
    5. Delete Vendor: Return to AppLoader folder, highlight Vendor, SHIFT+DELETE.
    6. Load OS to BB: Attach BB to PC, double-click Loader (in AppLoader folder, where you deleted Vendor).

    If it's any consolation, it's not just you. I tired unsuccessfully 3-4 times downloading 666 for 9800 from the RIM site. Luckily someone had posted 2 mirrors that work for that OS.
    Hopefully someone does the same. Give your sanity a break and be patient!

    OS5 ??? Do you mean OS6 ?

    First off thanks for the welcome! Your instructions were spot on & my device is currently upgrading to the newer OS. THANKS A MILLION! For those having trouble downloading the OS from the server my only advice is keep trying. It took me a few tries before the OS downloaded properly without spontaneously stopping, but ultimately it downloaded.

    After getting the newer OS onto my device I am yet to see any substantial differences. What kind of differences is this OS really supposed to provide? Anyone know?

    You're very welcome, and great to hear!

    This is great advice.
    If the DL's not working after a couple tries, give it a rest for awhile and come back a little later before you go crazy!

    Unfortunately, RIM never releases change logs for their OS versions.
    No idea why, especially since they do make them. Change Logs are often sent by RIM to the carriers when RIM sends the carriers OS builds for testing.

    I've only seen a change log 2-3 times. Once my Telus dealer sent me one for a major 8530 update, as I had 2 people with 8530's.
    A friend who tests OS's for AT&T showed me a change log once or twice as well.

    Unfortunately, the only way to get news on changes, fixes, new problems, etc, is to follow these threads on CB.
    Hopefully some other 9330 users will post more findings soon.
