    what does "it didn't work" mean?

    The english is probably available in the update.

    I am done here.

    You don't have the 14 seconds it takes to search for Beta OS?

    I am not going to hold your hand through the install.

    I am guessing that "it didn't work" means that you were impatient during the install or didn't read far enough to complete the install properly.

    download the file again.

    find a different mirror to download it from.

    many posts about corrupted downloads from the link.

    Hey Adam,

    It sounds like your download might be corrupt. Try to download the OS Update again. If that doesn't work, try to find a Mirror site and download the file from elsewhere.

    Theres a great how-to, which is the one that I use to update all the leaked OS's up to .103 (Verizon in the USA - Same steps though, my bro in law has a 9500 on Vodafone).

    Hope this helps:

    Be sure you are downloading the OS for the 9500 and not the 9530! Also, uninstall the previous version from your computer gefore installing the new download.

    Additionally, I would recommend doing a clean install on your BB - it (arguably) reaps better results. Having some IT knowledge, you'll understand why: i.e.: An OS upgrade vs. a Clean install.

    There is a tool that is linked in the thread above called JL Commander.

    BACK UP EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO KEEP BEFORE YOU START.
    (How To backup is described in the thread I posted above)
