    I'm kinda confused about this, and there might be some1 around this forum who can tell help me out?

    - What exactly is the difference in firmware between general BlackBerry firmware (that I can download using my desktop software, when I connect my BB to my pc) AND the specified firmware that I can find on my carrier's website... which is for me Vodafone?


    Any clarification would be appreciated, thanks!

    Nothing, it's the same.

    I see... but why does my carrier offer me a newer firmware at the moment, when BB says there is no newer version?

    Surely there must be some changes between BB and carrier firmware?

    6.0.0.600, for example, is the same OS no matter what source you get it from.

    What OS is installed on your 9780?

    What OS is your carrier telling you is available?

    10min ago BB desktop software tells me there is no newer version available than the 6.0.0.570 (already installed)... Vodafone tells me .600 is available (which was already launched on 7 July).

    Strange, that a carrier tells differently than RIM...

    Mmm, strange... after installing the .600 firmware from Vodafone, my phone tells me it's .570

    - No wonder the BB desktop software didn't find any new firmware, as Vodafone just named their version of .570 --> .600

    No Vodaphone didn't rename 600 to 570.

    Sorry, but that's absolutely false. 570 and 600 are different OS builds.

    Than I guess my 9780 is broken... I had .570 and just updated to .600 (which I found at Vodafone - my carrier).
    Yet, my phone tells me it's still the .570

    - Anyway, I will get the 9900 upcoming week so I can't be bottered too much really

    I doubt the install of 600 worked, if you had 570 on your Bold at 8:52 when this thread started you wouldn't be back by 9:13 saying you're done. It takes a bit longer than 20 minutes to wipe the OS install the new one and resotre data and apps.

    You might be right... because I found it quite weird, my phone didn't have to reboot after the install.
    I'll try again.

    Just download 600 and install it to your computer. Then follow the instruction in the how-to in my signature
