    This is over on Blackberryforums.com


    This is for the 9530 model, and will load on any carrier's 9530.

    Software For BlackBerry® Storm(TM) smartphone

    (I believe this version contains multiple languages, including English, European languages and Asian, if someone who installs it will post and confirm).

    Package Version:
    Consisting of:
    Software Platform:
    File name: 9530AMEA_PBr4_1.7.0_rel92_PL4.0.0.82_A4.7.0.65_Ver izon_Wireless.ex e

    File size: 104 MB
    Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

    Download Here: BlackBerry® Software Updates
    NOTE: At that page, you will be given the choice for the web-based upgrade or to download the OS for a manual install via Desktop Manager/App Loader.

    Instructions for installing either version on ANY carrier's 9530:

    1. Make sure you have Desktop Manager 4.2 SP2 or higher installed. Get it here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...05D7C424EBAE5F
    2. Download the above file to the PC then install it to the PC by running the file you downloaded.
    3. Locate the vendor.xml file and delete it. It's located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader
    4. Plug in BB and Open Desktop Manager. You should be prompted to upgrade.
    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 DM says "waiting for initialization."
    If you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply connect to DM again and run application loader again and it should load the OS to the device.

    Thanks Zerog46

    Don't have the phone. Didn't know which one of those numbers I should be looking at. That's why I put the words "I THINK" in the title.

    That was posted here today as well. I think the guy said it only worked on the U.K. phones.

    For the 9500 GSM model this IS for the 9530 but it is already on VZW phones.
