    Thanks as usual rroyy. I'm not seeing .706 anywhere - just
    BlackBerry Handheld Software v6.0.0.3049 (Asia)

    is the 3049 the version or the bundle?

    edit: nevermind, I see it: 9800jAsia_PBr6.0.0_rel3049_PL6.6.0.246_A6.0.0.706_ Vodafone_New_Zealand.exe

    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.

    Im not being able to install, even after deleting vendor.xml! Loader.exe does not find the update. It looks like that old DRM issue that occurred with the Storm2. Did anyone have the same issue?

    so, there was a second vendor.xml buried here at
    C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML

    just installed now. @ gameson: BBM is 6.0, so if you have the beta 6.1, its a downgrade.

    Is it the latest BBM ver. 6.0.1.32? Or newer/older than that?

    That feature got back in .668. Once you get used to not having it, its annoying as heck to get it back.

    mine has a new option to turn off wireless connections
    The ability to turn off a wireless connection ("Manage Connections") has been there forever. Unless you are talking about something else...

    I have .668 but to me it has been slow as time went on. Notifications stay on when I have already checked messages. Phone freezes up when typing a SMS, sometimes I Get the White Screen of Death but for a second and I just really hope .706 comes with very good results.

    Download from Rim is slow as **** and it craps out constantly leaving me with an incomplete file. Did the 9700 version at the same time fast and furious and fully complete on that one. Can someone take the complete File and upload it to an FTP site please.

    Anyone able to provide a list of what was fixed and what is better in this version ? I'm with Telus in Canada and they aren't offering this yet so wondering if is worth the update.

    Thanks,

    This was just pure evil. I've never had trouble with DM or Loader finding new OS's. Thanks for discovering this.

    I'm upgrading now from .600, I hope this one is an improvement.
